The doc was good, This is my first visit. He was able to figue out what my problem is.
The doctor and the staff was very warm, welcoming and professional
Great staff and treated well by all including physician. Not treated like a number like in so many offices now.
Dr. Pahlavan was very friendly and genuinely concerned about my ongoing ear pain. He asked a lot of questions, did a thorough exam, and had his audiologist conduct a hearing test on me. I felt very well taken care of. His staff is all very nice as well. One of the friendliest doctor's offices I have ever visited. I will definitely come back if I need further ENT care.
Very kind and knowledgeable.
Very nice & knowledgeable. Spent time explaining my options. Staff are friendly & helpful.
Fantastic visit, Dr. Pahlavan was courteous, quick, and easily helped me diagnose my throat problem. I would highly recommend visiting him.
He has seen two of my other children-- have never felt rushed Always answers all of our questions thoroughly. Highly recommend
Very professional staff and Dr. Shane Pahlavan, MD was excellent with my sometimes precocious 4-year old. I was able to get right in and my son and I were treated remarkably well! Very, very pleased.
This was an absolutely perfect visit in every way. From the professionalism of the front office staff, the benefits/insurance coordinator, the medical assistants, all the way to Dr. Pahlavan. Although visiting his office was not under the best circumstances, the quiet confidence of the staff and Doctor relaxed and reassured me.
I absolutely love Dr. Pahvalans personality he was very straightforward and to the point he was very thorough and very nice I would recommend him to anyone the office visit was great!
Post-Surgery instructions and poorly performed and it caused a great trouble going an getting the nasal bleeding fixed couple of times... didn't mention clearly the post surgery instructions to follow & use medications like nasal sprays & other stuff which caused lot of issues.
I have high expectations that Dr Pahlavan can resolve my sinus problems. After a thorough examination of my sinuses, he offered 3 scenarios of different treatments and explained each treatment very thoroughly and in language that I could understand. I feel comfortable with the treatment plan that I chose which was a permanent solution to my problems rather than a short term fix or management of the symptoms with prescription drugs. Last but not least, the employees in his office are the NICEST people. I have changed doctors because of office personnel's rude or dismissive behavior.
Amazing with kids! My daughter is 4, and he was great with her. She never felt scared or nervous in any way. He was extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions without hesitation. Staff is super friendly, and we were in and out in no time. Highly recommend for anyone, but especially for little ears.
The office staff was very friendly. The doctor was also. I would highly recommend this office

Dr. Pahlavan knows how to practice medicine. He is very knowledgeable and personable, and I appreciated the time he took to discuss my medical situation. He was able to administer a diagnostic test to pinpoint the cause of my chronic sinus infections and promptly offered a course of action to resolve my issues. I highly recommend Dr. Pahlavan.
I was impressed with his manor and interest.

Easy and fast!!
Great, personable, knowledgable, helpful specialist!
Both Dr. Pahlavan and his staff were very considerate, professional and explained the purpose of the visit and the scheduling for a subsequent surgical procedure fully and the necessity for the procedure.
He has great bedside manner and really listens. I am a person who asks a lot of questions, and he was very respectful of that.
I was happy with my apt. I was sent right then for a ct scan. Which was great because I live 2 hrs.away.
He has a wonderful way of talking to kids. My kids had a lot of fun in their visit and thought Dr. Pahlavan was really nice.
Only issue is that I still had to fill out patient forms when I arrived even though I had completed them online. The receptionist said she had other patients say the same thing.
Fantastic MD. Very thorough. Kind, considerate, compassionate, and top-notch. I value his advice and would return and recommend this MD to anyone - especially those I care about.
Really good doctor! Had a good personality and genuinely cares. Spent time asking questions and didn't rush things like a lot of places. I got to my appt early, so I had to wait a little, but I was called in right on time. I would gladly recommend to others!
