Dr. Nissan's bio

I spent a summer working at the Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago after my junior year and knew that I wanted to be a headache medicine physician. I saw how migraine and other chronic headache disorders impacted each patient's life and how gratifying it was to improve the quality of life with long term prevention and lifestyle modification."
