I met Dr. Daniskas when during an emergency visit to Mountainside Hospital a lung issue was found. I liked him immediately. He treated me as an equal; he explained his thinking; he demonstrated that he was interested in me and my malady. If he ran into me in the hospital by happenstance, he'd stop and discuss my case with me. He is someone whom I found instantly likable. He's quite a character and I'm happy I found him. I am now in followup treatment with him privately.

We (mother, daughter, granddaughter)have been patients of Dr. Daniskas for approx. 20+years! So this experience with the doctor is verified and the following facts cover 3 generations personal/individual medical care: (1) exceptional medical knowledge & implementation of clinical care(2) consistently keeps up-to-date with the changes/training in pulmonary medicine (3) takes time to review the documents in your file to resolve, update, inform the patient on current medical care prior to consultation(4) direct & to the point regarding medical care & alternatives for the patients betterment (5). Listens to rhetoric& queries patiently that may infringe on All parties time(6) overall Dr. Daniskas is an expert in his field of study who remains up-to-date in this arena and gives beyond the call of duty care to his patients My family’s experience has been excellent & the medical care, personal professional relationship which most importantly include patient feedback/concerns is the best!!

I had a chronic condition for several months. It took three week before I could get an appointment. The office will not call you if they have a cancellation. You have to call every day. The staff show not compassion for my condition. When I finally saw the doctor, I had to make another F/U appointment and had to wait another three weeks. The day before my appointment, the office called to cancel. In between that time, I received medical attention from another physical. Good thing I did.
