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.
He lets you know all the options, is very caring and sincere. Seriously, a good person and excellent doctor.
