Verified Patient Reviews
Great bedside manner. Although a busy practice he takes the time to answer your questions. So far I have found him to ne a very good doctor.
My son is 4 and he had tubes in his ears. It was my first time, so when one fell out and the other had not, instead of cutting to get the right ear tube we were told to let nature take its course (less invasive for a child) and it fell out. I had several questions and the doctor took the time to help me to understand what was going on with my son.
Dr Ipakchi is the best doctor I have been to! He is very knowledgeable and always takes the time to explain everything fully to his patients. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family
Dr. Ipakchi was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He listened and thoroughly explained the CT scan pictures he was showing while answering all questions I had. He explained each option for treatment and the risks associated with each. He didn’t rush me and ensured I was comfortable with the plan for treatment.
Dr. Ipakchi was very professional and explained our problems and what we had to do. He did not rush but took his time to explain
I am very satisfied with today’s visit. Every visit with Dr. Ipakchi has been a pleasant one. Entire staff is always polite and does a wonderful job helping. Office in both locations are very well kept and family friendly.
I enjoy my visit with him and i can say he answered all my question.
Took me in on short notice, the next morning. Did exactly as I hoped and helped me greatly.
Unprofessional and impolite staff. Took quite a while to be seen by the doctor which is not a huge problem but when he did see me it was for 10 minutes or less. Did nothing to address my ear issue. He said a tiny hair in my ear was likely causing the problem and when he removed it nothing changed. Did not discuss my issue of frequent ear infections which was the main reason for the visit.
He was great. He got straight to the point with my issues and I was out of there in 15 minutes with all the knowledge I needed to know about my condition.
The doctor always sees me just for less than 2 minutes . It seems that he is always in hurry and he does not give me a time to go over my Heath issues. I would appreciate if he takes longer during the visit
Super bright, very competent, does a nice job explaining the details of causation and treatment.
He’s always very pleasant and listens to my concerns. His answers are in language I can understand (nor medical gobbledygook). Love him.
Office was well staffed with people who worked quickly and efficiently to meet my needs. Dr. Ipakcki was also very good in explaining the condition and potential risks, then what we would do to check me and treat it if needed. He answered all my questions with thorough but not overwhelming details.
Really like this Dr. Has great personality on top of being professional His very friendly and laid back personality makes you feel at ease and comfortable to talk about any concerns you have.
I have been seeing Dr. Ipakchi for 7 months. At first, my experience with him was great -- he is a capable and knowledgeable physician with a good bedside manner. However, his office staff is HORRIBLE. Communication is a constant problem, as Dr. Ipakchi will tell me one thing, and then his staff will have no idea what we discussed. I had to wait months to get a CPAP machine because his staff never submitted the right paperwork, but swore they did. Last week, I waited almost 2 hours for an appointment because when I showed up, my appointment had been canceled in their system. I like Dr. Ipakchi, but the amount of money and time I have lost waiting for his office to get their act together is unacceptable. After 7 months of horrible experiences, I still have NO solution to my sleep problems and have to look elsewhere. Another word of warning: after one appointment, I even noticed a hole had been burned in my skirt due to the cleaning chemicals they used on their chairs that hadn't dried yet when I sat down. Seriously, just STAY AWAY from this place (both locations).
Glad I went and received advice and encouragement. Need a test before final diagnosis bur I am OK with that.
The first doctor to really listen to my issues and offer a real solution.
Dr. Ipakchi is the best doctor Ive had in my life by far. He has been extremely helpful recently as I have been dealing with ear spasms and tinnitus. I can tell that he truely cares about his patients’ well-being. The staff was also very friendly and informative. I highly reccomend going here.
Great experience! Professional, common sense medicine with high tech equipment and straight talk. Doug R
The wait time at this office has increased significantly, I will say though that on this particular visit the hearing test gentleman was the one who was 45 minutes late in calling me back and then proceeded to carry on a conversation with someone else after sitting me in the hearing test room. If you know you are over 45 minutes late, your first thought should be with the patient that has been waiting. After the test it was another 15-20 minutes before I saw the Doctor. I do like Dr. Ipakchi, but the wait time is getting to be annoying. Also on another note, the front desk doesn't always speak right up and acknowledge people as they enter the office, which I think is very important.
Dr. Ramon Ipakchi is the MAN!!!! He was outstanding. He was as professional as professional gets. He has a very positive attitude, positive energy, and I don't think I could've found anyone better. I 100% recommend him. I had an excellent experience and so will you!!!!!!!
I was referred to Dr. testament by my primary care. He immediately diagnosed me with a tumor and recommended surgery.The surgery was initially very scary for me. However, he was very calm and reassuring by talking me through the procedure and the recovery. I had the surgery and it was very successful. I'm still recovering but have little scaring, which is a testament to his testament. I highly recommend him and his office.
Dr. Ipakchi was knowledgeable and helpful. I ended up making appointments for all my kids to see him and I ended up going for myself too. He was kind, efficient, and appeared to be trying very hard to help us.
So good person listened to me, gave me options, and helped me out
The best ENT I've ever seen.
Straight forward, pleasant doctor that asks questions, listens to answers and is open suggestions. Explains things thoroughly.
Great Dr. -- makes you feel that he really cares!
Dr. Ipakchi is an excellent doctor. He was so kind and respectful to my elderly mom and my husband with dementia. He will be our ENT doctor for our whole family from now on. And the staff is equally kind and respectful. No waiting time.
Dr. Ipakchi was really nice! Very friendly and easy going. Listened to everything I had to say, and gave me very detailed feedback and instructions. He really knows his stuff. I can be kind of a high maintenance patient because I have pretty bad anxiety, but he was very patient and happy to accommodate me within reason. I waited a half hour after my scheduled appointment time, but I will still go back to him. After my session I realized it's probably because he was giving everyone the same attention he gave me. The staff was one of the FRIENDLIEST I've ever encountered at a doctor's office. HIGHLY recommend!
She is down to earth. Very helpful with looking at things in life a different way. She keeps it real and has a sense of humor.
Very professional;direct and to the point. I look forward to my next appointment in three months. Robert B.
Dr. Ipakchi is an "Outstanding Professional" and is well-versed in his subject matter. I would highly recommend him to anyone. You won't be disappointed. He genuinely cares and offers the best treatment for his patients.
Staff is very incompetent and unprofessional. This office has a tendency to schedule unnecessary appointments just to waste patrons time and get more money. I had to explain numerous times that my appointment was for one procedure. Radiology results were already performed two weeks prior with results sent to their office. Allegedly, the faxed results disappeared. No one has time for games.
Dr Ramin is beyond excellent. He stands out among ENT specialists. That's all I really have to say.
Dr. Ipakchi is very good at his craft, he explain what your issues are and he is very through in a method to correct your issue. He is a great doctor he put tubes in my son's ear at (1yrs old) after having mth ear infections. Now 2 my son has yet to have another ear infection or issue with congestion. Only issue I have the wait is always 30mins or more, need to cut out appts. in a day. He didn't rush my appointment though. Just always a long wait to be seen. So don't plan nothing after your appointment. Thanks Dr. Ipakchi
Took my daughter for ENT consultation. Overall, it was a great experience. The wait time was about 20 mins. The doctor seemed knowledgeable and caring. Although, he did seem to be in a hurry, he still listened to my concerns and gave me the proper medical advice for my daughter.
Dr. Ipakchi made me feel that the appointment was of value. I was afraid my complaint was extremely inconsequential, but he found some explanation for my concern. I was very glad that I had done to him.
Called at last minute with a problem and was able to see him that day. Dr. Ipakchi took the time to explain why the problem existed and how to treat it. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Would definitely go back to him for further treatment if needed.
This was my first visit. He was very kind and because I had done some reasearch on my condition prior to coming, I found what he had to say corroborated what I already knew. So far, he seems very committed to helping me with getting the care I need and to find ways to get complete insurance coverage. I'm definitely glad I found his practice. The wait was long. I didnt mind it, I just wasn't prepared for it as I needed to get to work. I look at a long wait as that is a good doctor but some may not see it that way. Next time I'll prepare to wait. Just be for warned, if you don't like waiting, that you may have a wait if he is highly booked that day. The office may want to review their scheduling and coordination process. Other than that. Doctor and staff were great! I plan to keep my ENT care with this practice.
Dr. Ipakchi was great. Very professional, but also down to earth, easy to talk to and was able to put my mind at ease by treating me like a person and not a patient. Thank you!
He's so warm, kind, and friendly it also never ceases to amaze me how quickly he can get to the bottom of what is causing my ailment.
The office personnel, medical technicians, nurses and of course Dr. Ipakchi demonstrate top notch professionalism and care for me every time I visit the clinic.
He was thorough and explained my issues in a language I could understand-----A rarity for many doctors. Also discussed allegry conditions as related to sinus problems. Wish he had been my ENT physician for the last 25 years. Confident I would not have been miserable as I have been !!!
the whole staff was great. and the doctor was amazing. i had a lot of questions and he answered all of them and i didn't feel rushed or anything. i highly recommend him.
Es un excelente doctor
Dr.Ipakchi is amazing!
Other than excessive waiting time, my experience was phenomenal. I wish they could do something about the waiting.
Active listener. Pays attention to all concerns.
Doctor Ipakchi is the finest ear specialist you will ever find! A true professional who takes the time to explain ad insure you know what is happening. I recommend Doctor Ipakchi for those looking for a great Doctor with a fantastic personality!
The doctor was very nice and knowledgeable. I really liked him a lot.
I liked the doctor and the way he conducted the consultation. Only comment at his regard, he did not listen to my lungs at all, and I would have liked that as I was having a chronic cough. As for the staff, the ones I encountered were unfortunately unqualified for the different tasks.
This doctor was very thorough in explaining all my results and recommendations. He took adequate time . Pleasant manner
I was very impressed with Dr. Ipakchi. He has a great gift of putting you at ease while diagnosing and treating you. He listens to your concerns and answers any questions you have in a way that is easily understood. I highly recommend him.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT HIM, HE ALWAYS HAVE A SMILE TO SHARE WITH YOU. KEEP THE INFORMATION PLAIN AND CLEAR.SO I CAN UNDERSTAND. HE MAKE ME FEEL SPECIAL.
I loved him!! He is so sweet!!
I went to see Dr. Ipakchi on Thursday due to a severe sore throat. He did not do a thorough exam (only looked at one ear). No strep swab was done since he said the antibiotic he prescribed would cover it IF i had one. But still, no diagnose. He said it could be viral, it could be bacterial, to wait a few days before taking the antibiotic in the event it was a virus. So thankful I did not listen to his instructions and started taking the antibiotic right away. That night I woke up with an excruciating ear ache. There was drainage as well. Went back to the office and saw his partner. He looked at BOTH ears and diagnosed an ear infection (in the ear the other doctor did not look at, which happened to be full of wax and has to be cleaned before he could confirm the diagnose). Now I have a ruptured eardrum and tinnitus...go figure. Glad the second doctor caught it. Very disappointed on Dr. Ipakchi's treatment.
Dr Ipakchi is one of my favorite doctors as he does not treat his patients like children. He explains exactly what is the problem and discusses the matter with you like a rational adult and takes the time to ensure all your questions and concerns are answered.
very pleasant physician, explained my test results, and explained why more test is needed. Following up on previous test.
He is an excellent Doctor. I am sure with more tests he will find out why I am having balance issues.
The office is in need of updating. The staff and doctor were exceptional. I highly recommend.
People at the office are very friendly and nice
Took a very long time to see the doctor, waited 25 minutes after vitals were checked. Bit too long. There was confusion around what room to put me in too. Dr Ipakchi was great, listened well, asked good questions, and walked me through my scope procedure and next steps. I'm now waiting to see if my prescriptions will show up at the pharmacy I requested they be sent to. They have not received them 2+ hours after seeing the doctor. Waiting for a call back.
Dr. Ipakchi was professional and kind. I felt well taken care of by him. His assistant was also kind and friendly. The secretary at the front desk, however, seemed disorganized and unprofessional. She was on a long personal phone call while entering my information into the computer. I waited 25 minutes for her to sign me in and was then given 7 papers to read and sign. Could not that have been done while I waited for 25 minutes in the waiting area? Parking is ample and free. Not sure I will return.
He is very personable, professional and compassionate; very knowledgeable and skillful!
He did not have a hearing test at this location of his office. With knowing
Dr. Ipakchi has been great to work with, takes time to answer questions and does it with a smile and good humor. He is a most competent professional.
I was a new patient and had to fill out the forms & also an emergency visit patient which is why I believe my wait was the length it was. I liked Dr. Ipakhi and is staff. They were friendly and the office was very clean.
I like the fact that the staff is friendly. Dr. Ipakchi is a great doctor.
Very professional. I am so glad that my primary doctor referred me to him.
Everyone was very nice they did everything right to make sure they got all the information they needed to help me . I was very pleased with everyone thank u
Excellent and thank you for professional DR and staff
Excellent!! What would take others forever to resolve only took Dr. Ipakchi all of five minutes!
Dr Ipakchi was great, but the wait time in outer lobby was about an hour and then wait in inner room before seeing Dr Ipakchi was almost another 20 minutes. Dr Ipakchi was very attentive and explained everything and apologized for the delay in the waiting room. Although very courteous, the office staff seemed to overwhelmed and somewhat disorganized.
Thought is was Great, Fix the issue right away! I had ear pain, and muffle Sound, he knew exactly what was the issue! Super happy I can now hear everthing!
The entire staff was friendly and professional.
I have been a patient of Dr Ipakchi for a over a year now. Best ENT practice I've been to since moving to NoVa. Finally, allergy nurses who know how to give the shots properly! I was to 2 different practices in the area previously where the nurses gave allergy shots like they would give a flu shot, and that is not the correct way.
Dr. listened and provided great service and advice for my earache and headache. Can use a BIG sign for the front desk SIGN IN requirement. Staff had difficulties in getting the audiology test report printed from the machine.
Dr. Ipakchi is the best! Explains all so that you can understand all phases of treatment. Professional, cheerful, and understanding coupled with a deep sense of caring for his patients. If you want great treatment then search no further!
I felt very rushed through the whole process considering I waited for 45 minutes just to get a hearing a test and then another 15 minutes to see the doctor. I'm glad I didn't arrive 15 minutes early as suggested or I would have waited even longer! I don't feel the doctor really spent time understanding my recent medical history and the best treatment.
i like him very much, trust him and would definately recommend him.
Great! !! An the staff in the office are very professional, competent, warm and friendly.
Dr. Ipakchi is all around a great doctor, both in the office and hospital. So much that he has completed surgery on all three of my children! He always does what is in the best interest for the patient. He's extremely approachable and always has a large volume of patients in the office, however while in the room with individual patients, he does not rush! This speaks volumes of how highly recommended he is. His staff is always amazing!! They are consistently very friendly!
This is the most professional practice, I have ever visited and met in my life time. I would highly recommend both Dr. Arabshahi and Dr. Ipakchi. Also to mention very pleasant and efficient patient receptionists.
It was very nice, really informative.
It was excellent.
I think it would be better if their was more patient privacy. When you sign in, everyone hears all of your business.
I was impressed and that it was a very professional Dr
Really liked the doctor and staff. Very professional and efficient .
Great doctor !
