Front desk staff was very friendly and organized. Seemed to all be working very well together. The woman who took me back explained what the different charges/co-pays would be depending on what they found which was very helpful. Dr. Aminpourhimself got me in and checked out my ear issue quickly and efficiently without being rushed! Explained exactly what was going on and after he recommended a prescription he demonstrated how to apply inside the ear so I had no hesitations. Very friendly - a lot of doctors tend to come off as condescending but not Dr. Aminpour, he was extremely pleasant. Definitely will recommend and come back if I have any other ENT issues.

I am really thankful for Dr. Aminpour and his staff's help in diagnosing me, for quickly arranging for a CT scan, and quickly scheduling the a procedure. I saw four doctors before Dr. Aminpour, most of which were extremely unhelpful. Dr.Aminpour was able to figure out what was wrong very quickly, and sympathized with me while other doctors seemed to not take the severity of my symptoms all that seriously. I highly recommend Dr. Aminpour and his staff.

Felt a bit rushed, and given the general diagnosis of allergies - I came in for an ongoing problem and looking for relief from pain in my ear and a pesky cough. As I was trying to explain my history withsinus and ear aches and my OTC medicine use - he was also conducting the exam. I was given a bunch of allergy medicine and spent the night still coughing and still have pain in my left ear. Also he wasn't in a ENT office so he only had a scope.

Very quick and easy! I was having issues with my voice. After a quick and painless scoping, I was diagnosed with acid reflux. Following the instructions of the doctor I was able to more or less cure my issue and all previous damage inside two months. Highly recommend!

aminpour treated me like garbage. I was on time and waited for 30 minutes. I saw him twice, and both times left with a bloody nose. his office staff was rude. he seems to care more about surgical patients; I wasthere for a sinus infection. maybe he just doesn't want to see medicare patients??? I have nothing good to say about my appointments with shervin aminpour.

Dr Aminpour is a wonderful and well seasoned Doctor, direct and to the point, but answered all of my questions. He was able to quickly diagnose my form of vertigo. Honest practice. All charges were discussed upfront. There was a wait,but consider why the office is busy.....he's a good doctor spending necessary time with each individual patient. No one complains when a doctor spend a lot of time with them but are quick to complain when they are waiting for their turn for great medical treatment.

It was my first visit with Dr. Aminpour, to whom I was referred by my primary doctor. The whole experience was very positive, from the reception, to the paperwork handling, to the nurse taking the initial information and doing some preparatorywork. Finally, Dr. Aminpour was very courteous, listened to my concerns and handled the procedure with care and efficiently. He explained very well what was my situation and how he was going to proceed. He and the whole staff were very attentive during and after.

I needed wax removed from my ears that were completely plugged. Instead of putting a few drops of oil to help remove the wax, he got in there and simply pulled it out. Hurt something vicious. Of course it didn't hurthim. I have had this treatment done before with other ENT's, (mine retired), and never did anyone else remove the wax this way. They put warm water in my ear and sucked it out with some sort of suction cup. No pain at all. Instead, I ended up with pain in my eat till way past 10 pm. The only thing he said to me was "Yes, the ears are sensitive".

Dr. Aminpour asked me right away if I have trouble sleeping, I snore and have bad breath in the morning. I was amazed how accurately he described my miserable being at the time. It turned out to all be connected tomy sinus infection. Two days later he performed a balloon sinuplasty on me and cleansed my sinuses thoroughly. I'm very impressed by his professionalism.

He was great! I went for a second opinion on sinus surgery and he informed me of everything I was unsure of before. I am booking my surgery with him! He also advised me about the difference between the two proceduresI need, something that my previous doctor never mentioned. I feel now that I am making the right decision going with him and will come out feeling a lot better!

The supporting staff was very polite and friendly. The doctor himself left a negative impression. It appeared that he was not happy to see me there and he wanted to get rid of me as soon as possible. Although I statedto the staff that I was there for a check-up and ear cleaining, he only showed up for the cleaning procedure and never even bothered to ask me if I have any other questions or concerns. There was also a total lack of communication during the procedure: the doctor simply did his routine without even warning me what I should expect. Such communication is essential when somebody is poking inside your ear with a sharp stick. When I felt uncomfortable after the procedure was done, he simply dismissed that and said it was normal. Overall, I can now undrstand why I was the only patient in the office.
