ONE OF THE BETTER APPOINTMENTS I HAVE EVER HAD WITH REGARD TO TIMELINESS AND PATIENT CARE. WAS SEEN QUICKLY AND DR. PAI WAS A PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH. DR. PAI ACTUALLY LISTENS TO YOU AND WILL LET YOU FINISH ASKING AQUESTION WITHOUT CUTTING YOU OFF. YOU DO NOT FIND THAT WITH TOO MANY DOCTORS THESE DAYS.

Dr. Pai was awesome. She checked all the boxes of what I look for in a doctor, and exceeded my expectations! She came in and was really relaxed and patient, talked over all my issues and was very consultative about them.I had an issue with my nose and she was extremely honest about the surgery success rate even though she admitted other doctors tend to over inflate the success rates for these types of surgeries. I found her honesty extremely refreshing, and she cleaned my ears and gave me some alternative suggestions for my nose to try.

Dr. Semma Pai is a wonderful caring physician, patient and through in her examination and I appreciate her numbing my nasal passage when she had to use a camera. Great bedside manner. I had been looking for a really good ENTand I've finally found her. I highly recommend Dr. Pai. The folks at the front desk are great also especially Nurse Tyrone that took my vital signs. He was very kind and courteous. Thank you so very much.

Dr. Pai is a great doctor! Easy to talk to, gave me the information in a straightforward way, and my discussed options with me. Will definitely go back to her for future ENT needs. Only downside was the office. Front officestaff was pretty busy having personal, unprofessional conversations when I arrived and had to wait to fill out what I needed.

Dr. Pai is an excellent doctor who truly cares for her patient. The long wait was not her fault, but the result of the previous patient showing up late for his appointment. She assisted me as soon as she could and took her time with me.
