Confident blended with hope

We met Dr. Nissen on Friday Jan 5th, 2018. The office staff scheduled our appointment for the same day and the doctor spend two plus hours with us to lift our hopes and spirits. Dr. Nissen number one attribute is to care about the patient. He is an excellent listener and answers every single question clearly. The highest level of excellence is apparent with Dr. Nissen demeanor. After we left the office at around 7:30 p.m., we are committed and looking forward to get help and support to overcome this health issue. Our thanks to the doctor and amazing staff.
