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. Hisstaff 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.

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.
