PLEASE......stay away. She is not good with the needles and causes more problems than she fixes! Very nice girl, but not so much as a doctor. See Kloth, Levi, or So!

Both Dr Nisenbaum and Jackie the APRN are amazing. They make a great team. Jackie really helped me with my pain and made sure all my questions were answered. I felt very comforted by Jackie and felt her take on things was refreshing.

Dr. Nisenbaum and her staff especially the ones assisting her with the epidural injection are kind, supportive and compassionate.Consult and follow up with her. I am not too sure about the APRN in that office, she is cold and abrupt,:-( ,saw her twice but prefer not to see her again.
