Dr Nisar is simply the best! He has been caring for me in exemplary fashion since August 2021, and I cannot emphasise enough how he listens, takes time, and in unfailingly kind and responsive. He arranged the necessary tests and diagnosed my problems very swiftly, and, together we are going forward with the required treatment. I would throughly recommend Dr.Nisar.
