This is one of the best ENT offices I have been to. Everyone is very friendly and tries to move you along through the process. Doctor Chaboki really took the time to explain to me what he believes need to bedone to correct my breathing with my nose and why he believes I am having the issues now. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have not received any treatment from him yet so these ratings are based on our initial consultation appointment. My impression was that he was attentive, transparent, and honest in laying out the best options for me.

I had never been to the office before and overestimated my transit time, and I arrived 30 minutes early for my appointment. I was seen 20 minutes before my actual appointment time. I did not wait any time for the doctoronce in the exam room. The doctor and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The doctor was clear and thorough in explaining what he would be able to do for me. Overall, a very pleasant experience! Would recommend this doctor to anyone.

Had my first consultation with him. At first I was nervous but, he quickly put me at ease and was easy to talk to. He went through step by step on how his procedure would go and stopped from time totime to ask if their were any questions I had before going on. I felt totally comfortable and the ladies up front were cheerful and helpful!

I have seen Dr. Chaboki for years and he is fantastic! He is very efficient but takes time to explain what is going on and possible options. The only negative is with his staff. I tried to call today to aska question and was put on hold for 15 minutes. I was then disconnected and never got to speak to a staff member. The office definitely needs to fix their telephone system! Even with the office issue I still highly recommend Dr. Chaboki!

I had a last minute problem and needed to be seen immediately. ZocDoc and Dr. Chaboki's office made this possible. The service and process was excellent on both ends. I would not hesitate to go back in the future for other problems, procedures or routine check-ups.

This is my second visit to Dr. Chaboki's office. I had such a good experience last year visiting him, but especially communicating with him after the appointment via email while I traveled for work and was not responding to the prescription. He will continue to be my preferred ENT.

NO doubt this Doctor is brilliant and quite accomplished. He is also very kind and charming. He saw me for severe ear pain and pressure in both ears, yet no infection was to be seen from looking at eardrum. I thoughtthat the pressure of the ear can be measured with a special instrument...but it was not employed. I was relieved that there was nothing 'serious'; I felt quite perplexed as to how I could have such incredible ear and head pain. Helpfully, Dr.Chaboki explained other reasons that could cause my pain and gave me excellent referrals with which to follow up.
