    Went to Dr. Undavia for a mole removal excision. I was very anxious and he made me feel so much better- he put on music to calm me down, made conversation, and was so comforting. When I went back today to get my stitches out, I got very faint. He took care of me right away; he had me lay down and got me a lollypop for sugar. Aside from that, he is great at what he does. There is barely any mark and I JUST got the stitches out! I would recommend him to anyone and will go back if I ever need to.

    I would HIGHLY recommend everyone to see Dr. Undavia. He and his staff are extremely friendly, caring, knowledgable, and professional. I am now 3 weeks post-op from surgery for my deviated septum, turbinate reduction, and sinuses and am feeling so much better. After having a deviated septum all of my life I can now finally breathe and it feels AMAZING and will only get better. A HUGE THANKS to Dr. Undavia and staff for everything you have done for me!

    I saw Dr. Undavia for treatment of my persistent sinus infections as well as difficulty breathing at night during sleep. He advised that my septum was slightly deviated and on one side touching the turbinate, thus effectively closing one nostril. He explained that I could continue to treat my allergies / sinus infections and then explained the pros and cons of surgery, without pushing me either way. I went with the surgery and couldn't be happier; recovery wasn't nearly as bad as I had read.

    I was having a problem with hearing in my left ear. Dr. Undavia did a full review of my symptoms as well as a hearing test. Based on this, he prescribed a medication that cleared up the problem in a bit more than a week! When I returned for a follow up hearing test, my hearing was where it was prior to my problem. Dr. Undavia was considerate, professional and very thorough in his diagnosis and follow up treatment. I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend him.

    After having sinus/allergy problems for many years - I went to Dr Undavia for a second opinion. I found him to be very proactive and that we were working together to resolve my issue. We worked through all treatment options before resorting to surgery. He explained everything clearly and was very responsive and understanding. Highly recommend

    My sinuses were severely blocked They showed almost completely black in the scan), and my septum deviated. Dr. Undavia's assertion that my breathing would improve has come true. Not only that, my sense of smell is so much more acute that it's occasionally overwhelming. In short, the quality of my life has tangibly improved.
