Review for Dr. Begum

Dr is fantastic. Very personable. He takes the time to explain what is going on. After my surgery he gave me his cell phone number for if I have any problems after hours. He also personal called the day after surgery to check up on me. I couldn't speak more highly of him

Review for Dr. Agrios

Both my husband and I were treated by Dr. Javier and agree with others here when it is noted he HEARS his patients. His explanations are precise and we both felt safe in his care. We recommend Dr. Javier highly!

Review for Dr. Javier

I found him to be very knowledgeable and to communicate in a way that I could understand. His office seemed to run smoothly and the staff were very nice and helpful. I would like to keep him as my ENT doctor.
