I was very impressed with his professionalism. He immediately calmed my nerves and greeted my husband and I as though we had been to office on a previous occasion. My issue was addressed and detailed descriptions were given as he conductedhis task to alleviate my issue at hand. I would recommend going here as it was truly a comforting experience. I am no longer afraid of going to see an ENT specialist anymore :-). I immediately felt the difference. I can sleep much better tonight as a result. Thank you Dr. Mukhija & Genesis! See you @ The Door...

Dr. Mukhija was the most arrogant, rude doctor I have ever encountered. He jumped to conclusions before every looking at my son's records or examining him. He asked me what type of reoccurring ear infections he gets, I told him inner-ear.With that he says "I can tell you right now that's not what he gets, he would be in horrible pain". Well... guess what that's what happens he does get horrible pain with them! How can this doctor tell me his pediatrician is wrong before he looked at anything?! Don't go to this guy unless you don't mind being spoken to like you are an inferior idiot!

Dr. Mukhija was so personable, thorough and explained everything he was doing as he was examining me. He answered all my questions, did not make me feel rushed and had such a nice way about him. He even made a jokewith my husband and I. My only confusion is why I had to fill out some much paper work which was exactly the same as what I filled out on ZocDoc.

He was extremely helpful. I went thinking I had a major problem, after the diagnosis and the clear explanation, I was at ease and was very happy that I finally found a doctor that actually cares about his patients and takesthe time to explain things in detail to them. Dr. Mukhija I have recommended to everyone that I know whom has asked me for a ENT specialist. You can not go wrong with his practice. He is not a good doctor, he's an Excellent doctor.
