Doctor Comstock is extremely professional and very patient. I looked for help after long months with severe throat infections and that any antibiotic could treat. After careful review he recommended the tonsillectomy. He made sure to explaineverything about the surgery and made sure I was feeling good about it. I can tell that he cured me and now, over 1 year from the procedure, I couldn't be more thankful for him, I never had any throat issues again.

He was very professional and timely. I was early to my appointment and Dr. Comstock came in to see me within 10 minutes of my arrival. I was actually out before my specific appointment time. He checked everything and remembered aboutmy past visits, and asked about those. I am recommending to friends and family for sure, love the office and staff.

Horrible experience. Didn't take time to view scans, dismissed findings of a neoplasm, & offered no further advice or treatment plan.

I wasn’t done filling out my paperwork when I was called in! Secondly, he looked thoroughly and actually saw something he was worried about and now I’m getting treated for it, and I had no idea i had this.

He introduced himself and the assistant when entering the room with very good eye contact and handshake. I appreciated that he asked me about how I was feeling, when my illness began and what I have done before coming in formy appointment. He did not rush through my appointment but listened and answered my questions.Overall, proceeded to examine me and provided insight about my condition and what I will need to do to improve. I felt comfortable and he said to come back if I do not see for feel any changes for the better.

Everyone was really friendly from the receptionist, to the nurse, to the doctor and lastly to the check-out/surgery coordinator. Doctor took the time to explain the procedure and to answer all my questions. The only thing that I had to ratea three star was the time. It took a while for me to get called by the nurse and then the doctor to see me. Should consider making the 15 minutes appointment windows more longer. Overall really friendly staff and I do recomend this practice!
