Verified Patient Reviews
I liked his attitude and professionalism. I will highly recommend him.
The doctor was prompt and to the point.
I will never recommend him. We visited to get ear checked there is a severe infection and wax inside ear. He acted as if he is extracting the wax. When my I and husband wanted have a look at the piece of wax after extraction he denied and acted as if there is lot of wax he extracted and trashed it. After reaching home we checked inside the ear and the wax was untouched and its still there. Worst experience.
Dr.Kapadia was very professional and concise. He made sure we had all our questions answered and was very friendly!
I had an excellent experience. I was taken back early and saw Dr. Kapadia within a few minutes. He listened carefully and had great help for my problem. He was kind and understanding. I would highly recommend him.
He was awesome...he had a solution within minutes...He was great! Can't say thank you enough!
ON TARGET!!! PERFECT!
Dr. Kapadia is bright and articulate. He listens well and is considerate and very gentle. He appears to enjoy his chosen profession and helping people.
Very professional and friendly.
He was very quick in his diagnosis. Confirming my problems. I was there for a second opinion which was exactly as indicated earlier by a different physician
Dr. Kapadia was great! He listened to my concerns, then made his diagnosis, and while giving his recommended course of treatment, explained everything in terms I could understand. He told me what steps he'll recommend (including what tests) based on how I respond to the medication he prescribed. He never made me feel rushed, but didn't chat about weather either. I appreciate him staying on schedule. I was seen within 10 min of my appointment time.
Doctor was not empathetic. Treatment did not result in any positive response. Sounded disoriented and not really sure if he knows what he is doing.
Pleasant. No hassle
Receptionist was very friendly and the consultation with Dr. Kapadia went smoothly.
Extremely knowledgeable and took his time to explain everything involved in my diagnosis. He put me at ease before and after my thyroid surgery. He's wonderful and I highly recommend him!
Good office, he seems to know his stuff.
Dr. Kapadia was very calming and nice from the beginning of our appointment. He immediately bonded with my son and made him comfortable with ease. The appointment ran smoothly and on time. I was very happy to see my son relaxed during the visit!
I am an existing patient of Dr. Kapadia. He has treated me for a few years. I am extremely satisfied with him & recommend him very highly.
Very prompt and thorough!
My appointments with Dr Kapadia have always been great visits as he always puts me at ease and explains the options in easy to understand terminology. Highly recommend.
He is very knowledgable and the staff is excellent
Quick and easy
Very good treatment, will be good if some more time is spent with patient
I think he is a very good doctor. There was a sense of hurry and impatience but he did spend ample time trying to diagnose and did answer all the questions. So, overall, I d recommend him any day to anybody.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Kapadia after being referred by a friend who highly recommended him for the same problem I have been experiencing. I felt very comfortable and appreciate that he took the time to listen to me, as well as thoroughly explain possible treatment options pending reviewing my different tests results. Unlike many other doctors, he spent time with me and engaged in a conversation without being on a computer the whole time. I didn't fee rushed at all. Would recommended Dr. Kapadia to friends and family.
Very solid...in and out of his office quickly. Highly recommend.
Dr. Kapadia was engaged with me. He made a quick decision which may or may not be correct with my symptoms. However, I believe he is knowledgeable. Do not know price at this point.
Excellent. I arrived early and was seen by him in less than 15 minutes. Dr. Kapadia is very professional and he remembered me, even though I had last see him in September (1st time). He took the time to answer all my questions and does not act snobby or like he was too important to talk to me. I like him.
Dr. Kapadia is very professional and gave me a through exam. He spent plenty of time answering my questions. I will be back after a CT scan.
Very personable yet explain thing where I understood them. I have an addiction to nose spray which is not easy to admit and I was comfortable enough to reveal my deep secret. He helped understand why and is helping work to get better. Nose spray addiction like any other is hard a d shameful, quitting smoking, drinking...they all the same. The drugs the sensation gets a hold of you Dr. Kapadia connected with. It was a blessing.
I was appreciative of how he didn't talk down to me about my extensive sinus history. I felt hopeful that he could bring me relief.
Very nice office staff. Dr Kapadia is super nice. Short wait time!
The doctor is hard to reach to .. All the time I get to speak to his nurses. He said I may need surgery so I asked for confirmation of it and I haven't yet received any update..
He was direct and informative. He explained what my issues were and what options were available.
Smart doctor . Knows what he's talking about . Would recommend coming to see him.
The doctor was direct and informative. The staff was friendly and efficient.
Explained what he was doing. Was skilled and knowledgeable and didn't talk down to me. I appreciated his expertise.
Very professional. Good personality and my problem was fixed within 20 minutes!
Really good doctor
Explanations were clear and easy to understand.
I can't not say enough amazing things about this office and Dr.Kapadia ! I had both my girls with me... They helped with my 3 year old while I had my appointment. He was so kind and very concerned with everything I had going on.. Put me at was right away and took the time to just talk to me. They all saw I was an over worked mama and made me feel so relaxed!! I will be highly recommending him to all my friends and family!! Fantastic doctor who really cares about his patients !!!
I feel like part of my issues were barely looked at. I had throat problems which were addressed thoroughly but my left ear pain was ignored. I will be stopping by again to make sure everything is ok with my ear and getting the # for the nurse line which I was told I would receive yesterday but didn't. I'm also concerned because no one went over prices for procedures that were requested.
Much like most doctor visits, you'll wait 20 minutes only to spend less than 5 with the actual doctor. The diagnosis if you could call it that is made so fast and informally you wonder how you (or the insurance company) could be charged anything. Hopefully its correct. Overall, I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend Lav Kapadia to anyone. His bedside manner's a bit too slick and you feel his transparent eagerness to get you out the door. Between the wait time and the haphazard bedside manner I left thinking an internet diagnosis (webmd) could've done the same job without making me feel like I wasted my time and money.
Awesome in and out
Efficient, straight forward, yet spent the time to explain and answer questions. Very nice first visit.
More than expected wait time. I was also not informed about the reason for the delay until I showed my complaining face.
I liked the way he explained everything and the steps to take to get some relief.
Dr. Kapadia was wonderful! He addressed all of my concerns and helped me understand possible causes. Knowing that I am a cancer survivor, the first thing he said after the exam was that he saw no evidence of tumors or cancer indicators. I had no idea how stressed I was until he said those words and I felt the weight of the world lift from my shoulders.
Nurse wasn't very friendly, but doctor was really nice and made me comfortable.
Seams to be a great doctor, 1st visit.
This is a very good ENT to go to.
Dr. Kapadia is very knowledgeable about his subject. He explains well.
Excellent Service & Awesome Doctor
We were greeted with unfriendly receptionist, and waited in the waiting room for over an hour. Total time with the doctor was less than 10 minutes unfortunately. Dr. Kapadia seemed like he was in a hurry to see us and leave. He gave us time to ask questions but didn't really make eye contact as he was typing on his laptop. Ever have someone talk to you while staring at his or her smartphone? Same deal. So while he took all this time writing the prescriptions of course he gets it wrong and sends it to the wrong pharmacy. Again, someone must have been in a hurry. So we call back to the office and what do we get? An automated answering machine. We dialed for the nurse, no answer, left a message. We dialed to for the appointment scheduler, what did we get? "Please hold..." Held the call for 5 minutes and hung up. 2 hours later someone decides to call and tell us that the prescription was transferred to the right pharmacy. As a dentist and fellow healthcare professional, the service that we received as patients was very poor and it's amazing how difficult it was to reach someone on the phone when we called the office. I would not recommend coming here at all.
Felt very reassured that the problem I was seen about was thoroughly handled.
Would recommend to anyone. Honest with integrity
All staff polite and professional. Very timely and efficient. Very knowledgable, courteous, and caring.
Great visit! Very helpful, concerned and caring.
He is very professional, very knowledgable, and very friendly. I felt so good after seeing him with my broken nose. Sun Cochran
He is very good. I abslotely recommend you to go to him.
very professional and easy to talk to
There was no waiting and when he was with me he was thorough and told me what he was going to do and about the process he would take to find out the reason for my ear pressure.
I loved everything about my visit or as much as you can when you don't feel good. I never waited past my scheduled visit time and Dr. Kapadia was very informative during my visit. Everyone in the office seemed to be in a good mood and very nice to talk with.
Prompt and good, as usual!
Absolutely terrific - as usual
VERY APPROACHABLE AND PATIENT FRIENDLY
Great staff, Dr. K was great and very knowledgeable, and is highly recommended.
Totally happy with Dr. Kapadia
Very professional office and atmosphere
It was great. He was very nice and explained things to me that I did not know. Has a very good bedside manner and I will definately be back to see him again.
Professional and courteous.
My appt. was at 9:40, when I arrived early at 9:15, they brought me back and I saw the doctor right away. His bedside manner was great.
I was very satisfied.
He listened to my concerns and cared about my symptoms.
Very good! Very courteous
Felt better immediately. Quiet and friendly office. Wait time was minimal.
Perhaps I caught him at a bad time. I was the last appt. of the day and I had made the appt. the day before. Perhaps he was not prepared to have a late appt. However, he was rather in a hurry and when I was trying to discuss my current "ear issues" with him, he didn't appear to have a lot of time to listen to me or 'hear me out', so to speak. It was a bad first impression, but I'm sure this does not distract from his quality of care. Hey...we all have those times at the end of the day when perhaps we have to get somewhere else in a hurry after work. This could be an isolated experience.
Dr. Kapadia is an excellent doctor. I have full confidence in the treatment he has recommended.
He's a very good doctor and really cares about his patients' health and well-being. My visits are always a pleasant experience.
Very nice. Knowledgeable.
Very professional yet explained things so well even I understood :). Not only did he explain what my problem was, he went into WHY I was having the issue to begin with and how to avoid future flare-ups. Did not take the "quick-fix" approach and I will be a customer for life.
Everything about my appointment was flawless! The nurse and Dr. Kapadia were very easy to talk to and gave me very detailed information. I waited not even 2 minutes for them to call me in too, which is so great considering I went on my lunch hour. They had me in and out in 30 minutes or so. Easy, friendly, clean, prompt... and I will recommend him and his staff to anyone who is looking for an ENT!
Doctor Kapadia was very professional, his nurse was very courteous, the office staffer very efficient. Plus the office was open to an appointment at 4 PM on Friday 30 December - very appreciated.
Excellent! Highly recommend Dr. Kapadia.
Dr K. is very friendly and personable and an excellent doctor. He explained everything in great detail and went over my test results with me, carefully pointing out issues and making sure he answered all of my questions. He made me feel very comfortable and was actually concerned about me as a patient. The staff is great as well, very efficient and very nice.
He and his staff were great.
He was very thorough, took his time explaining things and was very attentive to my concerns.
I would recommend Dr. Kapadia highly.
He listened carefully and answered my questions. I felt reassured that he wants to provide me with good care.
from start to finish it was smooth...i was able to complete registration and paperwork online, so the wait time in the office was less than 5 minutes. I was able to make a same day appointment. Dr. Kapadia was professional made sure I understood everything he was explaining to me.
I have already given my friend Dr. Kapadia's number. He seems very knowledgeable and has a very pleasant nature. I got an appointment right away and there was no waiting in the waiting room for hours. Such a professional atmosphere.
Visit went well he answered all my questions and the tech was very pleasant. Receptionist was very rude though.
I have been seeing Dr. Kapadia for almost ten years. I followed him to this new practice, and would do so again so long as he's somewhere in the metroplex. I feel a real partnership in my care with him, and his concern is incredibly genuine.
Loved making the appointment online. Dr Kapadia was very nice and I would see him again if needed. I was seen right away after I filled out my new patient paperwork and was out the door within 30 minutes.
Great doctor, great communication and willing to go the extra mile to find a resolution to your issue.
Dr Kapadia and his team were very helpful and generous. Thank you doc for helping me out in a crisis situation. I would recommend your name to all my friends.
I was a little skeptical about scheduling an appt. with a doctor on a website, without any personal reference. His offices were immaculate and staff was proficient. He was thorough and attentive and very professional. Great experience.
I saw Lav Kapadia, MD on April 5, 2011 less than a month ago, I will have to say, this doctor is the best doctor I've ever had. Enough Said.
I had a great experience today, he was very easy to talk to, which made me a lot more comfortable! I will recommend him to everyone I know.
He was very friendly never made me feel i am hospital.Gave best recommendation he can,
Very warm, knowledgeable, and professional. He listened to all of my complaints, checked me thoroughly, explained my condition and my options, and answered all of my questions. I really appreciated that he gave me a number of different options and allowed me to be flexible in my treatment based on my lifestyle and my personal preferences. He also made it very clear that he would make himself available to help me ASAP if my symptoms got worse or if I needed further treatment. He was very frank and forthcoming with information about the medication he was prescribing to me. I felt very informed and well taken care of when I left his office. I hope I stay healthy so that I never have to go back, but if I need an ENT, I will without a doubt be seeing Dr. Kapadia again!
Dr. Kapadia was very professional and was great with my 3 year old. He answered every question and even told us things that I'm sure we would have been wanting to ask when we got home. I would highly refer him to anyone. Hopefully getting her tonsils removed will be just as smooth :)
Admire his prompt responses. Always ready to see his patients.
I like the idea that the doctor could see me right a way and i didn't need to wait. I was also happy that i did not need to waste time filling out all the paper work and that i was able to send it online. it is a great idea. Doctor Kapadia explained everything that he was doing and it didn't take long.
