If I could give this doctor no stars I would! His nurse was so rude and impatient and treated me badly. Dr. Nishan apologized on her behalf because she upset me and offered a hug. I was recently diagnosed with calcification of the aorta and had been experiencing shortness of breath and chest pains and was referred to him by my pcp. He listened to my heart and eagerly offered to write a note clearing me for a colonoscopy and declared I didn't have heart problems. Save your life & go elsewhere!

Dr. Nishan is very thorough in examination and testing, while maintaining great interpersonal skills with me, as a patient. He takes the time to listen and explain the issues I am facing, and stays on top of my progress. He has a great personality, and I feel confident in his care for me. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends for quality heart care ... Joey
