Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Explains the mechanics of what is going on and provides simple treatment. An excellent and very clean office with friendly staff. He's also great with tricky diagnoses that not every ENT specializes inlike sleep disorders and vocal cord dysfunction. Bonus: If you need him after hours, calls go directly to him or another doctor in the practice, no nurse lines, no waits.
