Drastically over prescribed medication to me. A lot of patients probably like this because being in pain is so difficult. But in the long run it was very detrimental to my health.

I have been seeing Dr. Nissan for about a year and a half and am grateful to have found him. Prior to him, I had tried two different neurologists in Dallas for my chronic migraines but could not find the right fit. The first appointment I had with Dr. Nissan, he met with me for a long time and was very thorough in getting all my migraine and treatment history. Every appointment since he has continued to take the time to sit and see how I am doing or if any changes to my treatment need to be made. He is friendly and charismatic (which can be hard to find when it comes to neurologists). He’s extremely knowledgeable and always up to date on the latest research and newest treatment methods. All in all, a great doctor.

Very unprofessional staff. They canceled my appointments on 3 separate occasions on the day of the appointment. But they scolded me when I tried to reschedule well in advance of the appointment day. Patent is not advised when he/she needs to return to see a doctor to continue and evaluate further treatment. When tried contacting doctor directly I was told he would not return my call and all upcoming appointment to see him and continue treatment were rudely canceled.

Dr. Nissan has been a lifesaver for me. I suffered from a month long cluster migraine and he, combined with my excellent primary care doctor (Dr. Nelson Simmons), formulated a plan to break my migraine cycle and prevent future suffering. Dr. Nissan spends a great deal of time getting to know his patients and creates a plan that is actionable to address your needs. Dr. Nissan makes it his mission to get his patients healthy in the safest way possible. I highly recommend him! Patient for 2 yrs

I was experienced a 6 week long migraine, with no relief from my typical treatments, and was bedridden. I lived in Oklahoma and could not find anyone who would see me asap.. We found Dr. Nissan in Dallas, who saw me immediately. He explained that I had "chronic" migraines, and he gave me relief from my longest migraine. Afterwards, he taught me so much about chronic migraines, and he started me on a multifacited treatment plan. He remained invested in me. I now can life my life again! Thank you.

I've been a patient of Dr. Nissan for 4 years. He is a wonderful and caring doctor. He took the time to determine the cause of my migraines and a solution. I would highly recommend Dr. Nissan!

Dr Nissan is a tremendous physician. He has been treating my daily (4 a day) migraines since 2012. I am down to 1 migraine a day and sometimes I go a day without any migraines. Yes I still have migraines but my quality of life has drastically changed. I would highly recommend Dr Nissan. I spread his name to all I come in contact with that have migraines or have loved ones fighting this debilitating disease. He has become a hero to my health and my mind.

After years of seeing Dr.Nissan he left Baylor. He assured me he had transferred my case to another dr. and provided all my records to him and discussed my case. When actually, he left me with no one to help me, refill prescriptions or go to if I needed help for my medical condition. I called him at his new office. He had a woman call and say, "we don't see people like you".And I was a nice, loyal patient of 5+ years. For 2 months I've had no Dr and I'm in so much pain the ER is my only option.

My migraines went chronic over five years ago and Dr. Nissan was my lifeline to learning to manage my life. I am significantly better today and found a preventive regimen that works with his help and diligence. If you have a headache disorder, go sit and speak with him about it. The man saved me.
