I was seen relatively quickly by the Dr. However I left with no clear idea of what my diagnosis is or what I should take/do to get better. I was prescribed something, but it wasn't clear what other medicines over the counter I could take.

Very kind doctor. He put up with the fact that I couldn't speak (I typed answers to his questions on a laptop). He followed my instructions carefully about the needles. After he was done with the procedure, I could talk!

Dr. Namdar was what I expect a doctor to be, he was very professional. Listened to my reason for seeing a doctor and my concerns. He was through in his examination, and explained in detail, and in understandable words his pointof view, possible condition and what next steps needed to be taken to determine the cause and farther course of actions.

The visit was all right but the office didn't utilize all the functions of ZocDoc. I didn't have my benefit card, but I uploaded it to the ZocDoc portal. The receptionist told me their office only uses ZocDoc for appointments. SoI had to take 10 minutes out of my appt to fill out forms and pull up my insurance card number FROM ZOCDOC.

Dr Isaac Namdar performed a septoplasty for my deviated septum. I am breathing perfectly from my nose after 20 plus years of difficulty. It was a life changing experience. The surgery was quick, under anesthesia, and the recovery was a weekand not too painful. Highly recommended surgeon for septoplasty.

This was my first visit to an Ear, Nose, Throat doctor. I chose Dr. Namdar from Zocdoc because of ratings and availability. My ear had been bothering me for quite some time so I decided to finally see a Specialist. I’mso happy that I selected Dr Namdar out of the bunch. He is absolutely amazing! 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.
