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!

Cordial and efficient receptionist and X-ray technician. Dr Nissen was comprehensive in his analysis and communicated it well! I highly recommend Dr Nissen and his staff which is something I seldom do when it comes to health professionals that I have dealt with in the past.
