Dr. Nischal and his staff at the Eye Center are amazing! He made us all feel very comfortable during the office visit and during the UBM procedure. Thank You Dr. Nischal and Team.
we could not be more pleased with Dr. Nischal and his staff. they are great
Dr. Nischal is an amazing and caring doctor, definitely would recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Nischal is an amazing doctor. My daughter really likes him and he always puts her right at ease. Yesterday we were not scheduled to see him but her rheumatologist wanted her eyes to be checked before driving back to Ohio. He graciously worked us in and gave her a very thorough examination. We are very grateful for Dr. Nischal and his excellent care for my daughter.
Dr. Nischal is a wonderful doctor and has a very good relationship with his patient!! My son loves him and he always goes above and beyond to figure things out with our son's care. Would not go anywhere else!!
Dr. Nischal is a miracle worker. I do not normally fill out surveys but UPMC should know the good, life changing works that Dr. Nischal is responsible for. I cannot say enough good things about him. Dr. Nischal has literally changed my life. I was told my entire life that there was nothing that could be done to improve my eye sight/condition. Until I had the pleasure to meet Dr. Nischal, I was mentally prepared to become blind at some point in the not too distant future. In fact, when I started treating with Dr. Nischal, the vision in my left eye had already deteriorated to 20/200. At this last check up the vision in my left eye was 20/70. I have taken strategic steps to plan my life around the understanding that I would be blind at some point. For example, I became a lawyer so that I could still earn a living when I lost my eyesight. Dr. Nischal also is one of the most pleasant people I have had the privilege of being around and I have truly enjoyed my visits with him. To round this "comment" out, please tell him again that I said thank you and that he has made my life better.
Dr. Nischal treated me with the utmost care and kindness. He and his staff were very professional while still showing genuine concern for my comfort and wellbeing. My condition is quite unique/rare and Dr. Nischal went to great lengths to insure that I and my father understood my current condition to the extent that we were able. We both feel very confident that he will do everything in his power to lay out a course of action that will prevent my loss of vision.
dr nischel and his staff were excellent!
Bionca was absolutely amazing! actually the entire staff made us feel extremely welcomed and comfortable! Dr. Nishal was incredible!
Dr Nischal is absolutely the best.
As always, our experience at the Pine Center and especially with Dr. Nischal was extremely positive. Dr. Nischal and the other staff were very kind, courteous and caring.
Dr. Nischal is the best. He cares about my child more than I have ever experienced with any doctor before him. We drive over 9 hours to see him and will continue to do so as long as we can see him.
We always have good visits with Dr Nischal he is very thorough and explains everything.
We love Dr. Nitchel! He's a great doctor and great person.
Wait time was too much. The clinic seemed overcrowded, but that is to be expected. Overall, positive visit.
Dr Nischal always goes above and beyond with his level of care for my child. She has a chronic eye condition and we see him regularly. He always listens to our concerns and is wonderful with my daughter. I can't imagine what we would do without him.
we travel over 4000 miles because Dr. Nischal and staff take such excellent care of our son.
Dr. Nischal always takes plenty of time. He covers and reviews all health issues. Listens to anything, questions, concerns, he makes sure everything is answered and understood. I feel I always receive the best care, and am 100% confident in Dr. Nischal.
my son is a bit hard to handle but Dr Nischal is great with him and is able to calm him.
it was a great appointment from start to finish. the staff was friendly and courteous and I felt very comfortable. Dr Nischal is just a joy to talk to. he is always kind and great with my son.
Dr. Nischal is the most amazing doctor I have ever known. He is ALWAYS available via call, text or email. I am amazed, even after more than 2 years, at his level of dedication to his patients. He is one of a kind!
Dr Nischal explained the diagnosis in a thoughtful and sensitive way. He is an extraordinary physician.
the nursing staff were very kind and inviting as well as the provider.
Dr. Nischal is a fantastic doctor, so skilled and also always caring.
Jen and Dr. Nischal were both great. There was a delay, but Jen explain why. Dr. Nischal aways remembers my history, health problems, etc, always goes over other health problems that effect my eyes, he's an excellent doctor, and caring individual. Jen remembers history, and which doctors I see for which issue. She is always polite and caring in her work.
Dr. Nischal is one of the best physicians children's has. He always listens to me and understands all of our concerns. He went out of his way to find out more information for our family to provide the best care for our son. He is extremely knowledgeable, respectful and considering doctor. We love Dr. Nischal and all of his staff.
all doctors and staff were the best I have ever dealt with. very thorough, caring and always helpful
I was most impressed with the caliber of service provided by everyone we met. five star service!
I always have a great experience at this office. My only complaint is the time spent in the exam room waiting on the physician is always lengthy. My son is 3 years old and the wait is torture for both of us.
Dr. Nischal has been amazing. We feel very lucky to have him as one of our son's doctors.
Even though there are sometimes delayed in being seen, we always find that Dr. Nischal is never rushed with us and answers our questions and addresses our concerns. We realize that the nature of ophthalmology is such that appointments may take longer than time allotted for the appointment and this does not bother us as long as the doctor is willing to take the time necessary to take care of each child appropriately and without a feeling of being rushed.
Dr. Nischal always spends plenty of time with my son. He always makes sure we have a good understanding of any medical issues. I never feel rushed when we see him.
Dr. Nischal is the best doctor I have ever met in my life. He cares about his patients, and truly understands what it means to care. He always goes above and beyond and should be the STANDARD by which every doctor is upheld.
Very knowledgeable and a supremely good doctor.
Dr Nischal and his staff are excellent and always provide information that is helpful.
Dr. Nischal was excellent, incredibly thorough and reassuring.
Dr. Nischal is the best doctor we have ever worked with. If something isn't working, he researches something else to try and takes action. His and my child have a relationship that is unheard of with a doctor and child. They laugh together and he lets my son cry on his shoulder too if needed.
is one of the best doctors I've had work with
Dr. Nischal and his staff are excellent!!!!
everything was wonderful he's a very good doctor
Dr. Nischal is a godsend. We could not be happier with him and have already recommended him to others suffering from the same rare condition. We have traveled to Pittsburgh from San Francisco multiple times to see Dr. Nischal and will continue to do so as needed in the future because he is the only doctor to whom we felt completely comfortable entrusting our son's care.
Dr. Nischal is amazing. He is great with my child and really shows that he cares. He is very knowledgeable about my child's rare condition and can answer all of our questions. My family loves him!
Doctor and staff are very courteous and professional.
always a pleasant and productive yearly visit.
Dr. Nischal is an unusual doctor who is able to work at a world-class level medically, and yet talk personally and directly to children.
The doctor from London was very focused, confident, a world expert on my son's condition, and used humor to lighten our visit and make our son feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this physician.
Dr Nischal is a great doctor, and really shows concern and respect for my daughter and for my opinion of things. His staff is very kind and professional. I would highly recommend him to any other parent for his or her child.
Dr. Nischal treats multiple members of our family and I have extreme respect for him. He treats the whole patient and makes observations outside of just the eyes. He has even made clinical observations of family members that were not were not the patient at that given appointment. He has a great bedside manner with children but also with parents. I highly recommend him and trust the medical decisions he helps us make.
Everything goes amazing there.
Dr. Nischal is always looking for what else he can do to improve my daughter's medical condition. At each visit he makes her feel as if she is his primary concern and will spend as much time with her as necessary.
MR.Ken Nischal is great doctor
Dr. Nischal is an amazing pediatric physician
Dr Nischal is an amazing doctor and being that my child is only 3 months old he handled her very well. Also he has a great personality and he has helped my daughters problem get better. Very thankful for him
Dr. Nischal is the only Doctor that has provided me with lasting help for my eyes. He is wonderful and I trust him with what he tells me. He connected me with Dr. Moreland to get additional help. Dr. Nischal gets the credit for pain and swelling relief. He totally listens to my concerns and cares about me receiving the best of care. I believe if I had other concerns that I wanted to share with him, he would take the time and listen and point me in the direction of a Doctor that would give me help. He has never made me feel like I asked a stupid question. I believe He was a gift from God to me!
I cannot express my gratitude to Dr. nischal on the care he provides my daughter. She is privileged and blessed to be under his watchful surveillance. My family feels he is a gift from above and we love him dearly. We don't know where you found him, but please keep him.
Dr. Nischal is one of our favorite doctors. My 4 year old daughter would not leave the office until she hunted him down for a big hug. He is amazing, honest, and easy to communicate with.
great job by everyone I encountered thank you
Ophthalmology and Dr nischal are wonderful
Dr nischel is the absolute best ophthalmologist in the world, we commute 3 hrs for doctor visits just to see the doctors because he is simply amazing! Could not have asked for a better m.d. during this difficult time of infant cataract removal surgery! SIMPLY LOVE DR.NISCHEL!
Great Doctor always friendly and funny . He always takes the time to ask if I have any questions for him .
my kids love the dr and nurses.
Dr.Nischal was very professional, and informative at our last appointment. He seems very knowledgeable about not only my son's eyes, but the possible underlying conditions as to why he is the way he is. We have seen a world of difference in the care we are receiving now that we have switched to UPMC specialists for our son, and appreciate it more then we can express in words.
The entire office was excellent.
dr Nischal was wonderful. we were very late for our appt as we were held up with another provider. I met Dr Nischal in the waiting room as I was on line to let the receptionist know we were there, he was on his way out. He kindly turned around and got the room ready for my daughter.
Dr.Nischal is an excellent optometrist he's been a blessing to our family since he does surgeries & check ups on my daughter eye & he has awesome beside manners & very knowledgeable about my daughter rare eye disease. The nurse also are great!!! I thank god for them!! I always refer family,friends & associates to Dr. Nischal if their child has a eye problem because I know they'll be in great hands!
it is always a pleasure during appointments with Dr. Nischal. he and his staff are always great with my daughter and are understanding that she is 17months old and not always willing to cooperate. I could not ask for better care.
We have always had excellent care from CHP. Dr. Otabi & Dr. Nishel were actually a 2nd opinion I received when I wasn't comfortable with the first doctor we saw in the South Hills (Not affliated w/ CHP). I chose them because they were so close to home & they were referred to me by our Pediatrician. I'm so relieved I came back to CHP. The care & attention we get from ALL of the staff makes a world of difference when dealing with your child's health. I felt 110% comfortable with the advice & course of action. I can't thank you enough for all you guys do.
The doctor is the best in my opinion!
we absolutely love dr Nitchel and are blessed to have him as part of our team!!
Dr. Nischal listened very well, addressed all concerns, explained everything very well, made sure I understood the treatment plan and why it was being done. Excellent doctor.
staff care great very pleased with the doctor very understanding .
We always have a good experience at the Wexford office and feel that the staff there and Dr. Nischal are very knowledgeable and courteous. They put our children at ease at what could be an overwhelming appointment.
Dr. Nischal is amazing!!!
dr nischal was wonderful everything was well done and taken care of
Dr. Naschal is absolutely wonderful and provided my children with excellent care!!!!
Excellent staff and amazing doctor
For the first time ever I felt rushed during the appointment and didn't have time to process what was being decided in order to ask questions. After leaving I realized I was unclear on many things and have many unanswered questions. Dr. Nischal has always been so thorough and supportive that I was taken aback by his shortness during the appointment.
We truly feel blessed that Dr. Nischal is caring for our son. He is very professional and awesome with children. He is a brilliant man and so caring.
Dr. Nischal is the most amazing doctor. He is caring and concerned for his patients always. He is always available for us and even contacts us directly outside of office hours to address concerns or schedule appointments.
Dr. Nischal and his staff are wonderful and a great asset to Children's of Pittsburgh.
Th e care provider was very kind and was very concerned about my condition, also he explained the treatment that I had to get in order to correct the problem with my eyes
Dr. Nischal is the most wonderful, dedicated doctor I have ever met. I am a physician assistant, and I come in contact with many specialists on a regular basis and none measure up to Dr. Nischal. The care he has for his patients is beyond compare.
