Problem solver

For years I have had chronic ear infections due to birth defect. Over the years I have had surgery and many visits to other ENT doctors to no avail. Finally my last ENT recommended Dr Nissen. Wow, what a difference. I see him once a year for check up and cleaning of problem ear. Since then no problems. I started seeing him 5 years ago. Would highly recommend him.

One Star

He was rude to my daughter. Had to see her four times before doing tubes and then he kept questioning her if she for sure wanted it. Then he wanted to try one ear then she made him do other after her ears felt better. She then was done and did not get any paper work! UNPROFESSIONAL Doctor!!!!
