Originally went to Dr Godin for chronic sinusitis, ended up getting sinus surgery, Septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery. Two weeks later I’m feeling better than ever. Dr Godin was great throughout the entire process; I would recommend him to anyone

Dr. Godin is an extremely attentive physician, has wonderful bedside manners and it was clear to me from the start that he truly wanted to find a solution to my ear issues. He didn't rush me as I went over symptoms,was THOROUGH, easy to chat with and just seems like an overall great doctor. Separately, one thing that stuck out to me about Dr. Godin and his staff was that they clearly enjoyed working there and as a team. That speaks wonders for a health team and how well they will take care of patients! I would highly recommend Dr. Godin to anyone looking for an ENT.

Doctor did not answer my question about ear equalization during scuba, but instead tried to sell me on elective surgery. Whole point of the visit was to determine if scuba was safe for me or not, and he refused to address the topic.

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. Waittime 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 difficultand 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 myinsurance 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 appreciatedwas 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 ofpocket. 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.
