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.
