Dr. Troost's calm, professional demeanor made me feel much more comfortable than I had anticipated. As a singer I was feeling a little bit nervous about getting my first laryngoscopy, but his level of experience is clear, and I knew I was in great hands once I met him.

Had a very pleasant visit after a laps of 7 year, when I saw him only once. Dr Troost picked right where he'd left off and quickly evaluated my case, including few complications in other specialties. Reviewed several possibilities before givinghis diagnosis. I knew I was in competent hands and someone who really cared. He is thorough and exceptional, one the finest at GW!

1. Connected well with Dr Troost. Went away feeling very relieved. The only negative is that he saw me around 1:50pm, when the appointment was for 1:30, which is probably now par for the course, if not, better than par.

Dr. Thomas Troost was EXCELLENT! I went in after a bad fall that injured my nose. All the fears I had prior to this visit were gone after he sat and explained what he saw and what the process would begoing forward I would definitely recommend Dr. Troost to any of my friends if they found themselves needing this type of specialized medical care.

Dr. Troost only had me wait about 12 minutes. He is kind, courteous, and respectful. He is high-tech, giving me printed prescriptions and entering our visit details into an online system I can access and use to ask him questions. Helistens to my concerns and is everything an ear/nose/throat doctor should be. I highly recommend him.
