“The team from start to finish was absolutely outstanding. The office is immaculate. The staff is exceptional, from check-in to techs to Dr. Niska himself, who can make your experience of a painful situation like a happy day at Disneyland. They are more than professional and exemplary of what a doctor's office should be and run like. I traveled from Arcadia to come here, and everything that they say is more than true and accurate. I look forward to my follow-up. Blessings.”
