Given the Covid 19 pandemic, this visit was via video conference. My wife was diagnosed with multiple myeloma a little over 4 1/2 years ago. Needless to say, there were dark storm clouds hanging over us. The first day we met with Dr. Niesvizky we could feel his compassion and understanding. His medical expertise and knowledge is second to no one. He is an incredible doctor and human being. He knows when to push the right buttons in terms of treatment. He is responsible for guiding us through a long and winding road giving us hope and bringing sunshine back into our lives.

Dr Niesvizky saved my life. I started with him when I was extremely ill. He started me on a complex treatment path that has successfully lasted for 2 years. He has a nimble and creative mind and is fully up to date. He is also compassionate and caring, with a very human touch.

From my experience, over about 7 years, Dr. Niesvizky is committed to balancing treatment against quality of life issues. The first visit resulted in "watchful waiting" after another physician at another well known institution recommended chemotheraphy. His remark; "Larry, I do this for a living and I see what it can do-Time is on your side." And sure enough it was. At some point I wanted a second opinion. He recommended the best in class at Mayo and Dana Farber. This is a physician without an ego problem and is willing to be challenged by the best in the hemotology/oncology business.
