What People Say About Dr. Nicholas Nissen, MD

Removal of Neuroendocrine Tumor was done in 2016. Dr. Nissen was very attentive to the point of coming to see me in hospital during week-end when he was not on duty. Staff has been great during hospitalization and during follow-up period. He responds to emails in timely manner and answers all queries.

Dr Nissen misdiagnosed me and subjected me to a horrifically painful, dangerous, expensive, and pointless liver surgery. I put my life in this doctor's hands and he failed to consider all factors before cutting me open. I trusted his diagnosis and he was wrong. To date, my decision to trust Dr. Nissen ranks as the absolute worst experience of my life. Now many years later, I still feel the anger at having been taken advantage of. Do yourself a favor and get a second opinion.

Dr. Nissen is amazing. Spends as much time as you need with him. Explains everything until you understand it. The man saves lives. He is a doctor's doctor. Go see him if you need the best liver surgeon around.
