Dr. Sinclair really spends time listening to the patients. She took notes and captures all the details. She can remember the small things during your next visit. She is honest and explains things clearly. The examination procedures done byher was quick and painless. However, the FNAB cannot tell the full story. She referred me to another great Mt Sinai doctor. That doctor was also excellent. Finally, Dr. Sinclair gave me a call and explained to me I was diagnosed for a rare disease. I am fortunate to have her to find out what the disease is. It avoids an unnecessary surgery. Thank you, Dr. Sinclair!

Dr. Sinclair has the highest quality bedside manner of any MD I've ever seen in the US. Probably because she is not American. A surprising level of quality and attention in our healthcare system.

Dr Sinclair is so kind and welcoming, I have tried two other ENTs before but they did not solve my ear problem. I have been suffering for months until I see Dr Sinclair. Dr Sinclair patiently listened to me, throughly checkedmy ear and provided efficient treatment. Dr Sinclair is the best ENT I have ever seen, no wonder her schedule is so full. I will definitely recommend Dr Sinclair.
