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.

Appointment was very rushed. Perhaps making the last appointment of the day was my error, but that shouldn't matter when it comes to the type of care and attention one receives. The doctor was completing my sentences about my symptoms, makingassumptions that were soon corrected when I was able to finally share more info, and was guessing wrong all the way. He didn't seem to listen to me when I described why I was there. Overall I felt this doctor was dismissive and made broad assumptions about my case. A second appointment with a different ENT shortly thereafter resulted in a specific diagnosis, in less time and with less 'testing' (and therefore cost). Dr. Namadar was not helpful, not reassuring and not satisfying.
