Dr Nieson is incredible. Simply the best there is. He is amazing at looking at my daughter as a whole child, not just a diagnosis. He is able to balance her epilepsy and behavior challenges- something I couldn't find anywhere else.

Dr. Niesen treated me more that 15 years ago. I had seizures, I don't know if the medication he prescribed be cured me but it sure made me very fat Haha. Thankfully I haven't had a single seizure for about 10 years after I was taken off the medication at Cedar Sinai. Lots of side effects were left behind but I am seizure free. I hope for the rest of my life. I am now 26 years old.

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.
