Ivisited dr Nissan when my primary insisted I see ent for my frequent complaints. In a few days my visit was short and successful. He recommended a well known otc or Walgreen equal, that helped fine.

I had a terrible experience visiting this man's office. Not only was he extremely uninterested in my case but he also left me alone in the room after refusing to listen to what I had to say. His behavior was very unprofessional and I left his office without my medical problems being solved.
