    I was seen as an emergency for a very bad nose bleed. His office staff got me in right away, and Dr. Shikani took great care of me. I was extremely nervous and upset, but he calmed me down and got the bleeding to stop. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an ENT. He's very caring, and has a compassionate bed side manner, which was really appreciated during my scary nose bleed.

    Started out LATE with a heavily accented doctor and Shikani came in at the end to check things off and try to get me to sign up for sinus surgery. He didn't even really look at me once the during the short time he was actually in the room. I got a second opinion and I didn't even need sinus surgery! Stay away. Too bad since the staff is pretty nice.
