Dr. Nischal is a thoughtful and caring geriatric. Today is my mom 's first visit with Dr. Nischal. I can't thank her enough for taking her time(more than 1 hour) to learn about my mom's health and family history. Dr. Nischal provided my mom( 80 years old) with warmest care that my mom has never had in the past. Last but not least the front desk staffs are super amazing and efficient. Thank you so much Dr. Nischal and staffs at Winthrop Geriatric Medicine and Associates !
