Dr. Nisar questioned the symptoms I was having, besides the breathing. I said my leg was swollen and hurt. He suspected a blood clot and was right! That led to more tests and the problem was diagnosed. PLE. After a few days in the hospital I am home and receiving the right medication. I am very thankful for his expertise.

I will see Dr. Nisar in a few weeks to address the original reason for my first visit, questions pertaining to the heart. I am confident he will address the health issues I am having.

Completely satisfied.

December 3, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Nisar has been our doctor for many years! He saved my life and is very genuinely caring of our health. Love the care from his nurse X as she also genuinely cares about us. The rest of Dr. Nisar's staff in the old office were fantastic. I would not move anywhere else as my drs. are at Sherman and we trust them with our lives! Personally I do not like groups as Dr. Nisar is the ONLY DR. who knows us and our conditions. I was in the hospital and met and was treated from the group. He was intelligent but I was scared as he was not Dr. Nisar. His name started with D.

November 11, 2018 6:00 PM

Always plesant and informative.

October 16, 2018 7:00 PM

I have total confidence in Dr. Nisar. His staff do a great job.
