Dr. Nissen has been wonderful with my son. Not only I been thrilled with the physical outcome, he has provided the emotional support and guidance that a young athlete needs to stay motivated and focused during rehabilitation.

The virtual visit was just as deep as an in house visit. Dr. Nissen made me complete all of the assessments it wasn’t just a talk and go visit!!

Dr. Ashmead did my hand procedure about 6 months ago. He was very professional and, found him to be very efficient at my appointments. I appreciated how straight forward he was and he presented all my options clearly. My healing went beautifully following his after care instructions. I went back for a new issue and am just as satisfied with the plan for treatment as before. Would recommend him over and over to anyone needing to see a hand specialist.

Dr. Nissen has been fantastic with Ryan throughout his treatment. He's been patient and answered all of his (and our) questions and is always available whenever new questions pop up. We couldn't be happier and we are very thankful for Dr. Nissen - he's helped Ryan to continue playing the game he loves!

Best ortho-doc (and doc in general) that there is! Dr. Nissen is not only a true expert in the field with his incredible medical knowledge and skills, but he is also always very patient and kind. To me, the ease of the ability to form a trusting relationship with a doctor, relies mostly on this fact. Thanks Dr. Nissen, for always being not only a one-of-a-kind medical doctor that I can count on, but also a true, accountable friend!
