Dr Niska is easy to tell he's a smart guy. You can tell he knows what he's doing and I trust his judgement. He doesn't talk a whole lot, you sort of have to ask the questions in my opinion, but to his credit he gives you more time than most. So, as long as you keep asking, he keeps answering and doesn't make you feel rushed. I'd say have your questions ready! Highly recommended. I had a hand injury.

He is the best. This was my second hand surgery after the first was not successful. He is not only extremely skilled, but very kind, friendly and informative. He never makes you feel rushed. I am so thankful.

Dr. Niska and the entire staff at SCOI are fantastic. From the initial consult visit explaining his diagnosis and options ( which made me feel at ease during a difficult time ) through successful surgeries. Dr Niska’s excellent bed side manor is a breath of fresh air. His knowledge as a physician and skills as a surgeon have changed my life......
