A very professional staff. As a new patient at Potomac Ear, Nose and Throat I thought that the office was very well-organized when compared to other offices. I had a minimal wait time before seeing the first health care provider and felt very comfortable with Dr. Arabshahi and really liked his bed side manner.

I did have to wait an hour but I gave 5 stars anyway because Dr. Arabshahi had an emergency at the hospital and so the wait was worthwhile. As soon as he returned, we were seen with perfect service!

Wow, finally a Dr who takes the time to listen to you and provides you with a good get well plan. Dr. A gave me a thorough ear exam and we reviewed my hearing test results. I never felt rushed or that he wanted to move on to the next patient, he made me feel valued. This was my 2nd visit to Dr. A and am very glad to have found him.

Dr. Arabshahi is a great ENT doctor, but because of his specialty and being such a great doctor the wait is sometimes at least an hour. He may have to do a surgery earlier during the day and still attempts to see patients after surgery which makes the wait times longer then usual. I do recommend him and this practice because they do awesome work.

When it comes to his profession concerning ENT practice, Dr. Arabshahi is the best. He is very professional and has treated my sinus condition to a very good state. I can now breath again during the day time hours which I wasn't able to do properly since 1996. He removed a large cyst that was blocking a left nostril 100% along with polyps that he identified after a CT Scan that he ordered. If he did not identify this large cyst, and polyps, I may not have breathed right again until now. I am still having difficulty breathing at night due to my sleep apnea however; believe, the apnea level has decreased. Will find out after my recent sleep study results. Thank you Dr. Arabshahi and thanks to your staff for what you have done to assist me with my allergies and breathing sinus issues thus far. You have made a Hugh difference and I could have not asked for a better Doctor and his professional support staff at Potomac ENT. First Class!

When I arrived, I asked to be seen on time because I always have to wait (yes, always). I needed to get to work for a meeting. The nurse called me back about five minutes after my appointment time, took my vitals and asked how I was feeling. I still waited 35-40 minutes for the doctor to come in and see me. This practice needs to understand that a patient's time is just as important as the physician's time. If you schedule so many patients at the same time that they have to wait 35-40 minutes to see the doctor, something needs to change. If I was 35-40 minutes late to my doctor appointment, they would probably tell me to reschedule. I've mentioned this before; is anyone actually reading and considering these comments? Needless to say, I was late to work and my meeting. That was embarrassing.

Dr. Arabshahi uses a lot of "medical speak" when he explains things (he tells the patient as he's dictating to his assistant). I have a medical background so I understand most of it, but I imagine most of his patients probably do not understand a lot of what he says. I'd prefer he use layman's terms with me, as a patient, so I don't have to ask so many questions for clarification. The doctor is very nice and I like his bedside manner. The wait times are horrendous! For my first appointment, I waited more than 30 minutes. My second appointment was fine. For my third, while I was taken right away for allergy testing, it finished earlier than anticipated. My next procedure was an hour later, and I had to wait in the lobby for that full hour PLUS another 20 minutes. I could have gone home and come back! Also, the tech had to leave the room 2-3 times to get supplies that should have already been set up in the room for my procedure. If a patient was 20-60 minutes late for an appointment, I'm sure it would not go over well at all. I hope the staff will work on reducing wait times completely, or to only a few minutes at best. If I didn't have so much already invested in this practice, I would go somewhere else based on the wait times alone.

Quick and easy check in with almost immediate call in for B/P, O2 levels and brief synopsis of health since the last visit. After a brief wait, the audiologist called me in for the testing. Then a very brief wait to meet with the doctor for a reading of the results and plan of treatment. For a two-part appointment, I was in and out very quickly. The people here, by the way, have a gracious and friendly manner. And Dr. A is outstanding in his relationship with patients and quality of care.

Great physician! Very personable. Spoke to you not at you! Ensured you understood his assessment, test results and recommendations. His office staff could be more professional. Much personal talk and/or complaints in presence of patients. But since this is about him. If about staff wouldn't rated as high.
