    Dr. Nissenbaum was wonderful treating my 18 yo special needs daughter brought in to LIJ ER with seizures. His bed side manner was extremely kind and compassionate, and I am looking forward to having such a great doctor treating my daughter moving forward.

    Dr. Nissenbaum was able to see me urgently for a horrible migraine. He was very personable and put me at ease. I appreciate that he took the time to listen and explain his thought process instead of quickly resorting to prescribing medication, like most of the other doctors I have seen. Highly recommend.
