How likely are you to recommend Dr. Niswander?

(Select your rating)
I was evaluated and treated by Dr. Niswander for bilateral cataracts. His staff ( Grace, Angela, Kim, Sandy and Sherri to name a few) was welcoming, competent, professional and patient-focused. Angela, the surgery scheduler was flexible and attentive to my needs. Dr. Niswander was thorough in his explanations and open to my questions. The surgery was successful and for the first time since ninth grade I am not wearing glasses.
