Dr Mingrone was amazing. Surgery was smooth and painless . Staff was excellent. Didn’t have to wait for appointments. The whole process was really efficient. I sleep well because I can breathe through my nose now!

My appointment was at 9:00. I arrived about 10 minutes early as I was a new patient. I filled out my paperwork (about 5 minutes) and was called back right away. Dr. Mingrone came in right away and was super friendly.He didn't rush through the examination. I felt like he truly cared about my condition and I walked away feeling like I knew what the heck was going on. I had another appointment with someone else (in four weeks) and had made this appointment and drove 30 miles to see Dr. Mingrone. Would recommend him. His staff is also super friendly! Office is nice and clean. Easy to find. Parking is in front and private.

The wait time was rough, but Matthew explained the reason he was late, and that it was about an Operation that took longer than expected. It's hard to plan accordingly for those things so I can't be mad at him for that.

I book my appointment thru the app and it appears that my insurance was not accepted by provider/Dr. I lost time and money by showing to an appointment that not going to be covered by my insurance. The receptionist never calledme to notify me that my insurance was not accepted at that office. Very bad experience, used this for convenience, next time I rather spend the extra time to call my insurance provider to confirm the dr. who I'm booking the appointment with.

I saw Dr Mingrone for a ruptured eardrum and treatment for ETD. I think Dr Mingrone listened attentively to my description of my symptoms and asked probing questions to help identify the root cause and took notes when I gave myresponses. He used diagnostic equipment that was advanced and did what he could to assess the situation but due to inflammation in my ear canal and Eustachian tube area he couldn't get a complete view of everything but gave me an action plan to resolve this and return in 2 weeks to check things again. I felt the initial consultation was thorough and I have complete confidence in the direction Dr. Mingrone is taking to resolve my ear condition that has plagued me all of my life.

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!

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 infor 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).

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 earlyand 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.

-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 whoquickly 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.

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 convenientlyfailed 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.
