Fantastic! He is the poster boy for what a great physician should be. He is knowledgeable, thorough, articulate, and has the most pleasant bedside manner I have ever encountered. I am a retired physician and have trained hundreds of physicians and interacted with many others. He is the best I have ever seen!

I have been searching for a knowledgeable ENT who is personable and not dismissive and I am so blessed to have met Dr. Oringher. My husband was with me during the appointment because I've built up a bit of anxiety about ENT visits since I visited them frequently in my youth. I had a bad experience with a new office last year and havn't found the right fit until today. I think he and his assistant are awesome!

This was my second visit to Dr. Oringher. The first visit went very well but given that it has been hard to find doctors that I "hitched" with since moving to DC I reserved my opinion until this second visit. He is very kind and genuinely seems to care about the condition that is being dealt with. I feel very comfortable with him and contacting him should anything come up before the next follow-up for my chronic ear issue. Several doctors here and where I used to live have been very dismissive about the issue since it was caused by a surgery on the ear that didn't go well but Dr. Oringher examined the ear and saw the truth and acted on it instead of me having to suffer with it. The wait time for my first visit was not long, this time it was later in the day and they were a little behind but he was very apologetic.

He listened and asked questions, offered good advice and excellent care. I was very pleased with the outcome and would recommend him to others.

I explained to Dr. Oringher the following: I have been getting sinus infections my entire life, but over the past 3 years they’ve gotten much worse after a facial injury. I’ve been on antibiotics several times a year for this problem and most recently steroids. I have been so sick from this condition, post-nasal drip, cough, facial pain, severe headache that I miss work and family time. I came today, because I feel another infection starting and wanted to see the doctor, recommended by my colleagues, before it got worse. Dr. Oringher did not even examine me. He said none of my symptoms match chronic sinusitis (which is all I have ever seen on my diagnosis sheet over many years). Oringher said my problem is my migraines. Dr. Oringher, sat in front of my medical file and scans, suggesting I was and have been imagining this pain and discomfort in my face, head, throat and sinus. He was the most disagreeable and dismissive doctor, I have ever been too. Two of my colleagues recommended him, all of us work in health care.

Great doctor! I would highly recommend him. He patiently listened, performed thorough examination and was not hesitant to ask his colleague for second opinion (it was quite an unusual case). He did not rush and carefully explained what I should do even if my problem eventually proved to be out of his area of expertise. His assistant was also very nice and helpful. Registration was another story. I registered online (it took quite a while). I even photographed my insurance card and sent it electronically. I got lots of reminders (on average, twice a day, totally unnecessary and annoying). Once in the office, I had to do the entire paper work again! Everything I did online was ignored. What is the purpose of online registration? Seems like a total waste of time.
