    Extremely thorough and great follow-up. Very trustworthy, explaining all the risks and benefits of every treatment and surgery. Very careful to ensure that he had all needed radiology results in order to proceed for treatment. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a highly trained, experienced, and reliable ENT doctor.
