Verified Patient Reviews
I saw 2 other doctors before seeing Dr. Mingrone for some ear pain issues. He was the only one to look beyond my symptoms and ask lifestyle questions to diagnose the problem. I would definitely go back!
I received good care. The Zocdoc app needs some work though! I was unable to change location or cancel the appt & make a new one without losing all data.
exceptional, caring, and professional
Doc's office attempted to cancel appointment; I did not receive the tel call, so Dr. ( Who had and operation scheduled simultaneous) chose to see me before The scheduled surgery!!
He was very thorough and thoughtful
This was my first visit to Dr. Mingrone and to an ENT. His office staff had my paperwork ready for me to sign when I arrived. I was escorted to the examining room right away. I was a few minutes early and Dr. Mingrone saw me before my scheduled appointment time. He was thorough with his questions and examination, and allowed me time to ask questions during the examination. I was very comfortable with his diagnosis and "next steps". I would highly recommend Dr. Mingrone.
Very professional. Could not hear out of one ear when I walked in and five minutes later everything was fixed. Thanks Doc.
The ZocDoc profile ended up having inaccurate info for insurances accepted. My insurance was not accepted despite being led to believe it was. Furthermore, the doctor had very little to tell me in regards to the reason I actually came in for the visit, and simply referred me to a primary care doctor though I clearly had an ongoing issue for a prolonged period of time (10 months at the time).
Really very professional and good bedside manners!
Dr. Mingrone was great. Quickly diagnosed the issue and he recommended treatment that worked really with with me. Highly recommended.
Friendly, modern practice. Referred for a scan in the same building within the hour.
Staff was amazing, was quickly brought into the room and Dr. Mingrone was there within 5 minutes! Very thorough and an all around great Dr.
The front desk staff was welcoming and friendly. I was 30 minutes early to my appointment and they took me back within minutes. Dr. Mingrone was quick, efficient, and knowledgeable. He made sure I left knowing my treatment plan and next steps. I would highly recommend and look forward to coming back!
I was confident in him from the moment I walked in.
Great work and listened to what my needs were
It was great. He asked why I came in to see him. He did the required examination. Explained what is going on and requested for me to see him after 1 month after taking some medication during the period.
-Front Reception was extremely kind and helpful, even helping me locate the office after calling in confusion, and was even more warm and kind upon arrival, I'd like to thank very much! :) -I was promptly seen by Dr. Mingrone who quickly verified that I did not have an infection in place as I had a 4 wisdom teeth removed with a perforated Sinus, for which my Maxillofacial Surgeon who performed the Op did not inspect after. -Dr. Mingrone also expertly answered and corrected my assumption in regards to the bacterial floral present in Sinus/Mouth et cetera...Definitely a cool & precise delivery. Well appreciated Dr. Mingrone. -In the future if I have any issues involving my Ears, Nose, & Throat I would not hesitate a moment in visiting Dr. Mingrone's office.
Traveling through CA on our vacation and Dr. Mingrone was able to see me on the same day. Short wait, office staff was friendly. Dr. Mingrone was very nice, professional. Explained things well and asked me to call if any questions or concerns came up. Would definitely recommend him.
Pleasant office and very nice doctor. My needs were met very efficiently.
The doctor got right to the point, explained clearly the causes and effects of the problem.
Dr Mingrone is by far the worst Dr I have seen. He typically kept my visits shorts, suggesting surgery without proper examinations or even time for my questions, so I ended up asking questions in the hallway. His office also conveniently failed to tell me that they do not have a contract with my insurance company. After the surgery Dr Mingrone gave me a 3 day dose of antibiotics. In about 10 days I had a sinus infection which forced me to go to the ER. On the day I went to the ER, I called him to explain my pain and see what he recommends but unfortunately he refused to talk to me over the phone because he did not a few minutes time. He suggested I come to the office next week when I was in pain due to infection caused by the surgery. In short my experience with him was terrible. I chose another Dr since then to treat my sinuses and I never visited Dr Mingrone's office ever again.
Satisfied for my visit with dr. Matthew
Doctor and Staff were very professional and attentive
Dr. Mingrone and his staff are very professional. His nurse is very nice and a very warm, caring person.
Doctor does not accept Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance. Zocdoc says that they do. Please correct as my time was very much wasted.
It went well. He was attentive, and he explained things well.
It was good. Not what I was expecting, though.
Overall experience was good, the facility was clean with friendly reception.
Straight and to the point. Liza who took my appointment was great too!
Matt was very easy to see and the entire staff was friendly. Would recommend.
He was excellent
Very professional. Cleared my problem up quickly.
I've visited a good many doctors and Dr. Mingrone is absolutely near the top. He is friendly, professional, hands-on, personable but also direct and honest. I recommend him enthusiastically.
Excellent. he is very knowledgeable. professional and courteous. I enjoyed my association with him thanks Doc. TS
Excellent. Dr. Mingrone is very friendly and professional, gave good advice and seem very confident on what he is doing. Thank you.
It was a pleasant experience at the clinic with all paperwork done in a breeze. A friendly staff and it was also pleasure to meet with Dr Mingrone. He knew what he was doing and recommended what was necessary. I liked his to the point approach.
Dr. Mingrone was great all-around. Personable, thorough, and he seemed genuinely concerned with my health. It should go without saying, but he also seemed very intelligent and versed in his speciality. I highly recommend him.
I was in and out in 30 minutes.
he"s gentle and really knows his stuff.
just doing the minimum. Not feeling he was really trying to find a solution to my problem or let's say the solution he proposed wasn't the kind of modern solution/treatment you could expect in San Francisco.
His staff member Natalie was great. very nice and sweet.
Could have explained what he was about to do and what i could expect before he started suction of my ear.
I was very impressed with Dr Mingrone and his office assistant. Efficient, friendly and professional. No waiting and everything was explained. I highly recommend him.
Great doctor and great office staff.
