in North Hollywood, CA |
Dr. Niska M.D. is a very nice and I felt with him just complete confidence he listens to what is bothering you. Most Dr.s listen to you less than30 seconds. But most of all his team when I had a small surgery were so nice and I have to say that I am impressed. I definitely walk away with happiness. Definitely a great experience and I give him a5 star rating!
