Great Dr. he got me in and out. I needed the ear wax cleaned out my ears and it was quick.I will go to this doctor again and I do recommend his office. Staff is friendly and nice office too. The doctor recommended me not to use hydrogen peroxide and to use baby oil instead to clean my ears. Thank you everyone and see you again soon.

Dr. Kochhar took the time to listen to me and he was compassionate and thorough. I did get a little turnedaround getting to the office because the suite number is listed as "B--" but it's actually on the ground floor.
