I needed to find a doctor that would treat my back and sciatica pain, but not take over my prescriptions that I already receive from my regular doctor. I was so pleased to find Dr Nissan. He did a couple steroid injections in my back and I feel so much better. He does not prescribe pain medications, so it was a perfect fit for me. I just needed something different than my regular doctor could offer me. I had seen another doctor that wanted me to do stem cell injections, but they are not covered by my insurance, and so I looked for another pain doctor and found Dr Nissan. I asked him on two different visits about stem cell injections and he did not recommend them for me. I was so glad I went to him and did not spend the out of pocket money on the stems injections, plus, the steroid injections he did were so spot on, they really provided me with ample relief. Dr Nissan takes a lot of time with me, I never feel rushed, and it is easy to get an appointment. I believe he really does care.

I had a T11-L3 fusion in 2003. I have been in extreme pain ever since then. I tried everything anyone has suggested to me. Somethings helped somewhat, but no real relief. My pain level was always 6-8, and often a 9 or 10. I saw Dr Nissan for the first time in Spring 2019. I received a steroid injection near L4, L5. Felt a little better but was hoping for more relief. Received another similar injection and my back felt better but my sciatica was still really bad. Received an injection in SI joint which helped, but I still had deep pain in my hip area, so I received an injection into my hip. That's a total of four injections. These past six months have been the best I have felt since breaking my back!! Dr Nissan is compassionate, a good listener, and does excellent work. I have seen multiple doctors, therapists, chiropractors, etc., and Dr Nissan is the only one who really got me any significant and lasting relief. I highly recommend him. His staff is professional, courteous, and caring.

OUTSTANDING DOCTOR FOR MANAGING PAIN. Dr Nissan is one of the most patient and caring medical professionals I’ve ever met. His new age education and experience has allowed for him to manage his patient health needs with the most up to date options. His office is nicely decorated with inviting medical office decor and clean. His staff is great. They greet you with a smile and conduct business in a timely and professional manner. I would recommend Dr Nissan to anyone who is need of a good pain management doctor.

Doctor Nissan is a competent and caring pain-management physician who exhibits genuine concern for his patients. He has been my pain-management doctor for several years - treating me for severe nerve pain and chronic low back pain. When he left American Spine, I followed him to *Southern California Spine and Joint Institute* in Murrieta. Dr. Nissan listens attentively, orders appropriate imaging, and recommends and provides options to help reduce your pain. I highly recommend him!

Don't go to this guy if you are having pain. He immediately labeled me as a drug addict because I take Opioids for pain. He started giving me this story about all of the people overdosing and dying from opiates. I told him that this had nothing to do with does who benefit from. He offered me stem cell therapy and Microdisctomety. I told him I had 2 back surgeries and still having pain. He told me, well I'm not writing you any prescriptions for pain because they will kill you. stay away!!!
