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.

He took my issues very seriously and has a thorough approach to taking care of them. He immediately began to address something that other ENT's had dismissed in the past.

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!

I was basically rushed through his process. This was my first time at an ENT, so I had a few questions about the procedures. I could tell my questions made him impatient. Weirdly enough, he acted as though he was tooimportant to answer my questions. I still have to get some follow up tests done but I'll be going though my primary care doctor. I'm avoiding this place at all costs.
