I requested an appointment two weeks prior to appointment and never received confirmation from the doctor's office until a half hour before the appointment date and time. It is VERY UNPROFESSIONAL and irresponsible of them to operate a medical office in such manner.

Dr Behin was friendly and took the time to talk to me, discuss my ear pain, sinus pain and medical history. I didnt feel rushed and was happy with the thorough evaluation. The medication he perscribed worked and solved my ear infection that 2 doctors had failed to cure.

Amazing! Absolutely amazing service! I thought there would be a long wait because the office line was long but they saw me exactly at my appointment time. The receptionist was friendly, helpful and patient. Then the doctor himself was trulyphenomenal. I'd been having issues with my hearing for over a year now. He was able to locate the issue AND resolve it within minutes! I have never been so impressed with an M.D. in my life and my general doctor will definitely be getting criticized for not meeting this standard.

Dr. Behin was able to diagnose my condition quickly and was able to perform an in-patient procedure during my visit to resolve my issue. The wait time was minimal despite there being a lot of patients. My recommendation would be to get there when the clinic opens.

Dr. Behin's staff is patient, even though they have a challenging number of patients to deal with! This definitely feels like a volume business with many patients addressed at a very fast pace. While Dr. Behin himself seems knowledgeable andgenuinely caring, the sheer patient load made the visit feel very rushed. The office itself is in an older building between JSQ and the Heights, so it feels somewhat run down and cramped.

This doctor is listed as a pediatric ENT. He is NOT a pediatric ENT! I missed and entire day of work and drove an hour away for two minutes of his time.... Literally! He looked at my son ( not evenexamined yet) and immediately got frustrated when he began to cry (he is one years old) He looked in ONE ear and peeked in his mouth for a whole millisecond and said "yea I'm not a pediatric ENT " and referred me to another doctor. When I tried to explain my son's medical history he cut me off right away and said his symptoms may be a neurological problem. If he had given me a second to even speak he would have known that my son is evaluated regularly by a neurologist and a neurosurgeon for other medical issues and his speech delay is not a neurological issue. It's was a terrible experience and the office was disgusting. The best thing I could say about this office is that the receptionists were pleasant and my wait time was minimal but that could also be because the doctor is rushing through his patients!!!

I went to see the doctor because one of my ear kept getting plugged. He made me come back three times before actually scheduling an ear exam. Never went back to him. Instead, visited another doctor who performed an exam andprescribed ear drops that actually helped. All in one visit, not three. Save time and money by going to another doctor.

I waited over an hour and Dr. Behin spent about 3 minutes with me. I was livid. He was presumptuous and assumed I lived a certain lifestyle based on my symptoms without finding out any history first. NEVER again.
