Dr Lygizos is a personable and very competent, experienced doctor. I remembered him positively from many years ago when he treated my young son, so I went to see him currently. I wouldn’t go to anyone else if he is available!

Dr. Lygizos was very pleasant, listened closely to what I had to say, asked pointed and directed questions, and made me feel comfortable in the office, rather than a number. He treated me and offered medical advice that helped me leave feeling better.

Professional and knowledgeable. Also appreciated how he didn't push surgery as a strong option off the bat even though it may be necessary. Have a followup appointment in a month.

Dr. Lygizos is wonderful...very kind and welcoming, and explained everything thoroughly to me, including test results and recommendations. He is warm, personable, and clearly cares about his patients. I am a new patient, and left anotherpractice because the doctor lacked empathy and kindness, and did not answer questions or explain things. I would highly recommend Dr Lygizos to anyone seeking a truly excellent ENT physician!
