The doctor was attentive and informative. Unlike most doctors, he actually asked questions and listened to the answers and reacted to them in real time. He also answered questions and explained medical terms in plain English. All that was refreshinglydifferent. The wait was a bit annoying, but 40 minutes isn't terrible.

Dr. Aynehchi and his staff are a pleasure to work with. I came in for major sinuse issues and decided to proceed with surgery. Initially I was terrified, but Dr. Aynehchi was very patient with me anf explained the entire procedure.It's been over a month since my surgery and I have zero complaints, everything went well and was never uncomfortable. I wish I had spoke with him sooner. A+ do recommend!

He was very attentive. He listened to all my concerns and made appropriate referrals should I desire. I also felt comfortable telling him realistically what I would be willing to do so I would not be wasting either of our time.The front office was also very sweet and efficient. I find it is rare to have a good front office and MD so I was happy. The waiting room is small but comfy with large updated selection of magazine.

He is a very caring doctor and really takes the time to see you and address any concerns. Dr. Aynehchi has such good energy without being condescending, that is a plus for a doctor. Not only did he recommend two kindsof nasal sprays, but he was honest about not adding unnecessary expenditures and told me to come back if I needed to. I would totally recommend him to anyone who needs an ENT doctor!
