    How was your appointment with Dr. Nissinen?

    Sep 17, 2021
    Dr. Nissinen is an incredibly thoughtful and compassionate doctor. He spent much longer with me than I expected, taking a detailed and thorough history and asking many follow-up questions. I was moved by his patience and compassion for my issues, some of which fall into a kind of grey area between neurological and psychiatric, which has previously caused some hurdles in getting treatment. I am really grateful I met with him, not just because he has hopefully pointed me closer to treating my symptoms, having provided numerous referrals and recommendations, but because his kind and compassionate approach made me feel really good about doctors, and honestly, people in general.
