Extremely well run office with great, friendly, empathetic staff, and knowledgeable staff. My appointment was exactly on time, which is so refreshing in a day were delays at the Dr. office have become the norm. Dr. Lykins was personable, approachable,and most importantly, thorough in his diagnostics. I didn't feel rushed, just a number, or an inconvenience. I felt like a person who's well being was their primary mission.

I made an appointment with Dr. Lykins for my mother blindly, then asked around for referrals. I had 2 friends that are nurses at assisted living homes refer me to him because some of their residents had seen him. He wasvery nice and had a good sense of humor with my mom, which was appreciated and needed. I would recommend based on first impression and experience in a heartbeat.

Dr. Lykins was great, as were all of the Valley ENT specialists and staff I saw during today's office visit. ZocDoc made it easy to find this doctor, schedule the appointment, and complete most of the paperwork in advance. Their office"patient portal" is helpful too. This office is clearly set up for today's on-line world, and I appreciate that aspect as well. Bottom line is that Dr. Lykins and the team were all friendly, helpful, and reassuring with respect to my health issue and follow-up care. I highly recommend them.
