I made the appointment the day before and showed up for my appointment on time. I waited no more than 10 minutes and was in a room. The nurse got my vitals and then the Dr Lykins was in to see me. Took care of me and got me on my way. Great doctor!!
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 thought Dr. Lykins was very nice and explained everything very well so I could understand it. He has a nice sense of humor.
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 was very 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.
Amazing! Dr. Lykins made me feel at ease and was very approachable so that I was able to relate my issues without hesitation.
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.
Very polite, I rushed and felt he took the time to ask questions - very impressed. Feel better already - thanks
Very personable and nice man. Helped with diagnosis and now treating diagnosed problem that stumped other doctors.
