What People Say About Dr. Norman Nishioka, MD
Reply
This Dr. is the best out there. I have been seeing Dr. Nishioka for about 11 years. I had what they call High-Grade Dysplasia, Which if not treated will attack your internal organs resulting in cancer followed by Death. When my condition was discovered, They gave me less than a year to live if I didn't go through at the time was a Clinical Research. It was either remove my esophagus or go with the new treatment. I chose the new treatment and here I am today alive and kicking. He saved my life!!!

Terrible...he was arrogant ignoring my husband's local gastroenterologists findings with catastrophic results 16 months later. He never took the time to explain the seriousness of his condition. Only speeking with my husband as the procedure was about to commence while he was under the influence of anesthesia.we sensed something wasn't right.
