After years of constant sinus infections I made an appointment with Dr. Chauhan. After showing me a scan of my sinuses he showed me all the problems that were going on and he assured me that he could help and that I would be breathing better. He explained everything throughly and answered all my questions. It has been six months since my surgery and I feel so good. I am glad I sought his help and have not had any problems. I would recommend him to anyone who has sinus problems.

I have seen multiple ENTs and Dr Chauhan is by far one of the most skilled and passionate Surgeons I have met. He recently corrected my Deviated Septum, worked on every one of my sinus', and even repaired a hole that was in my septum. It was a huge surgery and he nailed it! I am only a week out and I am breathing better than ever before. Dr. Chauhan is kind, understanding, passionate, highly skilled, experienced, funny, and respectful. His staff (John) created a calming, fun, and personal experience every visit. If your looking for an ENT I would highly recommend Dr. Chauhans practice. I have zero complaints and only praises to give!

Dr. Chauhan is compassionate, efficient, knowledgeable, and cares about his patients and their families. He performed nasal surgery on me 10 years ago for a chronic problem, taught me how to take care of the issue so I would hopefully ever need to deal with the issue again and I haven’t had to see anyone for the problem since. When my husband needed an ENT we drove 45 minutes to see him and he managed my husband’s concerns the same way. He is expert clinician!

Having consulted Dr. Chauhan due to ongoing sinus issues that culminated in surgery, I have consistently been treated kindly and professionally. OTC treatments led to prescriptions and surgery. Ultimately, I was confident at every stage of the process, each stage helped, and I am now significantly better than when I began. I never felt that I was being "pushed through" so he could see the next patient.

Wonderfully explained everything to my 9 year old daughter, as well as to me. Did a VERY thorough exam and did not just focus on her main complaint. Receptionist/manager John worked with me to schedule surgery around our family vacations and school.

Total waste of time and money. I went for my throat issue, but the doctor was fixated on my "sleeping disorder" and the Deviated Septum! Spent almost $550 for 3 visits, but no resolution to my throat issue!! The receptionist (named John) is also rude to the patients. They will not care for the patient. Stay away from this doctor and his staff! There are much better doctors around the area.

I have had 2 surgery’s performed by Dr. Chauhan. The first surgery a UPPP was performed about 8 years ago, the second surgery to repair a perforated septum and deviated septum a few months ago. I wasn’t pushed into doing either one (but) am glad that I had them done. I am able to breathe much better, sleep much better and no reacurring headaches:) Being 54 years I personally wanted to do whatever it took to improve my quality of life especially moving into my later years. So far so good!!

Dr. Chauhan is very knowledgeable. He listens to his patients concerns and answers all of their questions very thoroughly. He is an excellent surgeon. I had a deviated septum which he performed surgery on and I am very happy with the results. He is a very caring person. I would highly recommend him. I drive approx. an hour to see Dr. Chauhan. Also John (office staff) is excellent. He is very pleasant and professional.

I would highly recommend Dr. Chauhan to anyone in need of an ENT. His skills are exceptional. Not only is he an excellent surgeon, he genuinely cares about his patients. He takes the time to thoroughly explain things and to carefully listen to your questions. I have been through years of sinus related misery and I have seen several ENTs, he is absolutely the best and the only one I will ever see as long as he is practicing.

My kids and I have been seeing Dr. Chauhan as our ENT for many years now. He is very thorough and knowledgeable. I especially like him because he doesn't just automatically decide surgery is the solution. Dr. Chauhan takes the time to try other options first. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait. But he is definitely worth it.

Dr. Chauhan has all the qualities that an excellent doctor should have. I've had suffered from chronic sinusitis for over 15 years. I was constantly in pain, my headaches would never go away. After one failed surgery few years ago (with another dr) that made me feel even worse, I was hesitant to put my trust to any other dr. Long story short; Dr. Chauhan performed surgery on me in June of 2017 and now I feel great; the pain is completely gone. Dr. Chauhan is the best! Thank you Dr. Chauhan!

If I could go back, would stay away from him. Surgery made me even worse and it took 13 appointments with him. I am now seeing another ENT specialist.
