What People Say About Dr. Nelson Oyesiku, MD

Reply Flag
Dr. Oyesiku performed Transsphenoidal surgery to remove pituitary tumor in Nov. '16. I cannot say enough about him & his colleagues. He was professional, explained everything; drawing diagrams on paper. He performed the 5 hour surgery- incredibly delicate- and I had a great result. His team included ENT surgeon (Dr. Solares), endocrinologist (Dr. Ioachimescu), neuro ophtho (Dr. Biousse)- all wonderful. All follow up appointments were set up. I was confident that I was in great hands.
