Was able to get an appointment the next day. Front desk was nice. Was easy to find. Ive been having trouble hearing and he cleared out the ear wax very quickly, did a hearing test, and was out of there. Wait time was very minimal. Had a great experience and will go back if I ever need to!

Excellent experience. Dr. Godin was very thorough in the understanding of the problem, and effective in finding the most appropriate course of action, and treatment. Dr. Godin took a very proactive stand in trying to understand a difficult and confounding initial clinical picture, and did his very best to help me. I am grateful to him for what he did, and for all his help. Great office, very well organized. Also a positive mention to his nurse, who does a great job too in assisting him and helping patients. The nurse facilitated a referral for higher level of care in a very professional and effective manner. Thank you very much to both of you.

BE SUPER CAREFUL .. STAFF MISGUIDES YOU ABOUT YOUR PAYMENT. I gave my insurance card and ID to the guy at front desk and asked him very specifically please let me know if I have to pay anything?? He ran my insurance and said you don't have to pay anything, your insurance covered it. Later I get a bill at home and when I called the office, Keith the manager tells me I have to pay even knowing his staff gave me wrong info. Plus he was very unprofessional- BEWARE- that's all I can say.

Dr. Godin is friendly, yet direct and honest, which I really appreciate. I had a traumatic experience with an ENT condition as a child and Dr. Godin did everything he could to be as gentle as possible. What I really appreciated was that as a surgeon, Dr. Godin didn't immediately recommend surgery - he was conservative in his approach, clearly cared about how I felt and he discussed multiple treatment options. If my condition relapses, I will definitely go back to Dr. Godin.

Dr. Godin regularly uses a diagnostic practice called endoscopy which gets billed as a surgical treatment and is not covered by most insurance policies. This means that patients will have to pay substantially for a diagnosis entirely out of pocket. I doubt that many patients would opt for the added procedure if they knew it would cost them so much. Had I been told of the cost, I would not have opted for it given the limited benefits and possible risks. Less importantly, but worth knowing, Dr. Godin was brusque and unpleasant, never introducing himself even though I introduced myself.

Dr. Godin was the first of five doctors that I felt truly listened to the symptoms that I was describing, instead of quickly dismissing them and handing me vertigo medication like everyone else. He took his time examining me, complied detailed notes, and made suggestions for next steps. It's easy to see how he has been selected for the top doctors list several years running. I will say that Dr. Godin was straight to the point with me, and doesn't seem like one for chit chat - which I personally appreciate in a specialist. If you want someone intelligent and experienced looking after your ENT problems - he's your guy.

First time visiting an ENT after a recommendation from my dentist. Dr. Godin was very pleasant, thorough in his review, and explained his diagnosis clearly. He asked me a ton of questions to narrow down my symptoms. He gave me paperwork explaining my issue and prescribed some meds. I have to return in 30 days to confirm if my issue is resolved. Great doctor, definitely recommend.

Visit went well. It's not easy seeing a 2 yr old and she's not the easiest person to deal with, but we got what we came for. Dr. Godin was as close to great as can be expected with our daughter.
