He put me at ease because I was terrified that he was gonna suggest a very invasive roto rooter type of surgery which I do not want. After the consultation I am more knowledgeable about what is going on in mynose and what the cause of my discomfort is and I am ready for the next step.

Dr. Sigari was friendly and straight-forward. The office staff was efficient and friendly as well. I was only there for a quick consultation, but would definitely return in the future if need be. I am 100% comfortable and confident in movingforward with an upcoming tonsilectomy performed by Dr. Sigari. 2 thumbs up.

I've had some nose/throat issues for a while, and I saw several doctors who kept telling me to do the same treatments over and over, even though they had not helped me. I was beginning to lose hope that my issuescould be fixed until I found Dr. Sigari. He's been very helpful in exploring all options, and he's not only been professional and knowledgeable but also kind and friendly. I'd highly recommend him!

I'm about 24 hours after a tonsillectomy with Dr. Sigari, and I could not be happier with how things are going. I was incredibly nervous before the procedure, but he put me at ease and made me feel confident that Iwas in the best hands imaginable. While I don't know what tomorrow will hold, I'm feeling pretty darn good for having come off the operating table just 24 hours ago.

Dr. Sigari is the ultimate professional. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, and able to explain things at a level a layperson can easily understand. He was able to do a CT scan of my nose and sinus area right there in theoffice -- no separate appointment at another lab -- and therefore able to suggest a treatment plan the same day. I'm so happy to have been referred to him!

I went to see Dr. Sigari after sustaining a fall onto my face. Although I was slightly embarrassed under the circumstances, Dr. Sigari treated me with the utmost professionalism and alleviated my worries. His bedside manner is exceptional,and he is able to explain the medical information in an easy-to-digest manner. Also, the wait time was reasonable (20 minutes) and the front office personnel were exceptional.

One of the best ENTs in Southern California but his office is usually very busy and overbooked so expect an overly long wait time. Otherwise his medical advice is very honest and easy to understand and he keeps insurance requirements in mind when making his recommendations.

Very knowledgeable ENT Surgeon with excellent bedside manner. Absolutely NO waiting or delay. Waiting is a common occurrence in physician's offices because the physicians can never know what emergencies might arise and which patients might be very ill or very talkative, causing more time to be spent per visit.

Dr. Sigari and his staff is amazing. I was quickly greeted, given paperwork to complete, checked in and in the examination chair in 10 minutes. Dr. Sigari examined me and gave me a diagnosis (minor and fixable in a week). Answeredany questions I had (whether they were paranoid or not..lol).. I was breathing better when I left and my prescription was waiting for me at my local pharmacy.

this was my first time visit with Farhad Sigari. I had a great experience. The two front workers are lovely, and sweet, and you can tell that they are sincere. His assistants we also very nice, and comforting. I will Icould remember he name. she was an assistant. she had brown hair, with strikes of blond. She took her time, and asked many questions. I felt like she really took the time to listen to me, and I left happy, after talking with Dr. Farhad. He is such a great doctor. I found out what was wrong with me in the matter of minutes. Your Awesome Dr. Farhad!!!! Thank you for you help. I'm looking forward to my next visit :-)

Amazing ENT! I had several procedures performed on my sinuses and not a soul could tell the next day. Besides, slightly swollen eyes, I had no bruising or swelling around my nose and no pain. I used to hear horror storiesabout the recovery process but he made it a breeze, I was back to work the next day!

My overall experience was excellent. For about 24 hours prior to my visit, earwax had clogged my left ear causing pressure, hearing loss and loss of sleep. Dr. Sigari's suctioning technique remedied my problem in less than 15 minutes and the procedure was pain free.

Dr. Sigari is very patient. I was having the Pillar Procedure performed, and we had to stop very, very often just trying to get my palate numb because of my gag reflex. He was calming and friendly about it, and Iwas able to get through the process. He even called me the next day to see how I was doing!

I left my appointment feeling quite uncared for. After telling me he didn't see any issues based on the discomforts I'd described to him, he ended with, "I'm not sure what else to tell you, plenty of others have this sameproblem." I had to ask numerous questions to get more information, while he kept his eyes on the computer sending in a prescription while never once turning to actually look at me while I was talking. He sent in a prescription for an antibiotic, then said if it doesn't work there's not anything else to do. He did manage to fit in to plug himself about his pro bono work he would be doing the following week, but than I could call him the week after if need be. I'm not sure why I would call after he made clear he "wasn't sure what to tell me"??? I would not recommend this doctor.
