Amazing! Very nice, calm, sweet guy. Asked me if I had any other questions and made me feel comfortable even discussing little things that bothered me (dry nose). Explained well. Our appointment was very short, but not because he rushed me. He made sure I was done with questions.

Knowledgeable, friendly and thorough. My ear is so better!

The best ENT in the world, He was both of my children ENT, Physician and he was very helpful and caring. My 22 year old had her tonsil/adenoids removed and she was very happy about the experience. My younger child wasa frequent visitor to his office because of my son's ear condition. MD Namdar performed 3 different types of surgery on my son and I was well pleased each time. He is wonderful and caring MD. I am an ED nurse and I have referred many of my friends to him. The staff in his offices are also the best.
