Dr. Nishimura is on the speed dial

Dr. Nishimura is on the speed dial of me and my colleagues practicing 250 miles away. He is always available to discuss and guide in complex cases and often personally calls to give follow up. I had a young patient with constrictive pericarditis who failed medical management and Dr. Nishimura took over his care personally and finally saw him through pericardiectomy. One of many of my patients whose life he has saved. There are no words to describe him except to say that he is a “Vishwa Guru” meaning the ultimate teacher! Privileged to have had his guidance.
