Patient Comments (1)
in Buffalo, NY |
My daughter who attends school in Conn. had to have surgery to repair a torn labrum. Being away from the comfort of home and physicians she and I are familiar with made us very anxious. Dr. Nissen & his fabulous staff understood this and they all were extremely informative and comforting. Dr. Nissen answered all questions that we had and was genuinely happy to do so! The surgery went fabulous, 4 beautifully cut incisions healing to a faint line. Dr. Nissen is a wonderful Dr. & person!
