He is Simply the Best. That's all I can Say. The Best. I never found any doctor as compassionate as Dr. Nizin. It was love at first sight. I was so convinced by him that I did not even take any second opinion as so many of my friends and family insisted I do. And I did not regret my decision. Thank You very much.

Attentive, accessible and highly educated and experienced in his field. Dr. Nizin comes highly recommended by nurses and doctors that work with him. They are also his patients. That's how we found out about him, through their recommendations.

He is by far the best. I even have had a colonoscopy without sedation. Best of the best. Not in my plan and I don't care, going to him anyway.
