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.
