Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Nissanoff is very thorough, attentive, clear, listens well, and explains things in layman's terms. He is respectful of the patient's time and schedules realistically. He is pleasant, knowledgeable and personable. I was seen promptly and treated courteously. I am very satisfied with the visit
the wait was terrible, and the staff seemed very young and unprofessional.
I felt that the Dr. was VERY rushed...spent maybe 30 seconds with me...quick diagnosis. Sent me to physical therapy (the place he gave me to mgo was terrible)...and he gave me a prescription that I was getting ready to fill at my pharmacy when I received a call from a mail-order pharmacy approx. 75 miles from where I lived. I was told that the Dr. faxed them an order --- unbeknownst to me and certainly without my authorization. They could fill my prescription and overnight it to me (no charge), but (a) it was still going to take 2 days to reach me and (b) not at all pleased that a doctor's office would do this without asking my permission or even making me aware of it. I was totally unimpressed with the quality and communication and have since decided not to return to see this physician.
Dr. Nissanoff addressed my problem right away and I received cortisone injections in both knees, left with my rx, woke up this morning and I was able to get out of bed and walk! Thanks Dr.!!!!
Very professional very easy to talk to explain everything very well good bedside manner.
Having been involved in a rather life-changing accident, Dr. Nissanoff has made very effort to provide myriad treatment options, accommodating my needs and on my schedule when possible. He is sensitive my apprehensions and trepeditations, and always makes sure I understand what's happening. I travel a great distance to see Dr. Nissanoff - because he's worth it!
This is a wonderful physician who is very knowledgeable and has a calming demeanor. My only complaint would be occasional difficulty with certain front staff members. I spoke with Dr. Nissanoff about it at my last visit and am hoping the problem was taken care of.
Very nice and explained everything and also answered all my questions.
Everything was excellent. Thank you.
I went in briefly a couple weeks ago . He could've been more friendly and welcoming. I understand a doctor has to see a lot of patients in a day and is incredibly busy, but I've never felt more like "just a number" with a doctor. I was ushered in and out so quickly without so much as a smile. Maybe he was having a bad day, which we're all allowed to have...But when you work in an industry where people are coming to you with ailments that are deeply concerning them, you should probably learn to put your bad day aside, at least while you're with them one on one. On the chances it was an off day, I'd say don't take my review as your basis. I'm just saying how it felt for me this time around.
The doctor saw my son for a sports injury. He was very good at explaining the reason for his his back pain. Very nice and easy going.
Love love love this doctor! Wonderful office staff! Highly recommend! Thank you ZocDoc!
Great doctor, very knowledgeable! Front staff was less pleasant, more coxnerned with chatting than handling patents.
Very knowledgeable, personable and professional. While I have great fear of the impending surgeries that lie ahead, Dr. Nissanoff is very reassuring and his patients successful recoveries are testament to his great talent and abilities. Highly recommend.
Dr Nissanoff and his staff were very professional and courteous. I was a new patient but was treated like I was a long time patient. He handles my problem quickly explaining what the situation was and took corrective action. Good job.
efficient appointment, a bit rushed during second follow up. overall good experience.
Dr. Nissanoff is a very good doctor, but the hour and a half wait soured me on the entire experience. I arrived at 7:45 AM for an 8:00 appointment and was brushed off by the receptionist when I asked if I could check in. I asked three more times over the next half hour if I could check in and she said she had already checked me in. Three patients who arrived after me were taken back to see the doctor by 8:30, and I finally managed to speak to another receptionist who told me I wasn't checked in. I then had to fill out a second patient history form, which wasn't even given to the doctor, I presume, as I had to repeat all of it for him orally later. I wasn't taken back to a room until 9:00, and wasn't seen by the doctor until 9:30. When I tried to check out, the receptionist I spoke to had the wrong chart and tried to convince me I was scheduling a spinal surgery when I was, in fact, there for a knee injury. I very much liked Dr. Nissanoff and was satisfied with his treatment, but his staff was far from impressive. My hope is that it was just a bad day for them.
The appointment was very helpful for my current situation of not knowing what I did to my shoulder. He provided answers and relief which I greatly needed. Its not a guessing game when it comes to learning about injury of the body and your physician, and Dr. Nisanoff was direct and gave me a course for treatment.
Excellent. Very nice and encouraging!
Dr. Jonathan Nissanoff, I liked him very much! He explained and answered all my questions. I would recommend him to family and friends. He is very good in his line of work. His staff was also helpful.
Felt like I was being processed.
Comprehensive plan for treatment. Friendly staff.
Great doctor. Only complaint is unfriendly receptionist.
Receptionists were unfriendly, unhelpful, and late to show up to work. I had an 8AM appointment but nobody had even arrived to the office until after 8AM. Doctor Nissanoff was caring, quick, and pleasant. If only his support staff were more helpful and interested in customer service. Electronic check-in had way too many forms & waivers (more than any other medical office I've ever visited).
Dr. Jonathan Nissanoff is very pleasant and explained very clearly my situation and the required course of treatment.
Dr. Nisanoff was very professional yet friendly. He understood the pain I was in and was able to prescribe medication that relieved the pain.
Very nice, felt at ease.
Dr Nissanoff, with a full waiting room,listened to my problem, and explained in detail what my injury was. He immediately recommended an X-ray and following the examination of the X-ray, recommended therapy first,, before offering surgery as the only answer. I will go back following one month of therapy, and have no doubt at all, whatever he may recommend, will be the right answer. He is warm and kind, and I felt completely confident with his diagnosis and advice. Hooray for Dr Nissanoff!!!!
He is fantastic and so friendly!
