My son was diagnosed with Epilepsy a few years ago. Since our first phone call to Dr Niesen, he has been amazing. He called us over the weekend, both Saturday and Sunday and worked with doctors at the hospital we were at, ensuring that my son has the proper medication.. He is constantly there for us and my son's Epilepsy is under well under control. Dr Niesen is by far my favorite doctor. He is an excellent physician and I highly recommend him to anyone needing a Neurologist.
