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.

Dr. Chauhan took his time to explain in detail his recommendations. He offered up some suggestions and helpful tips, he also mentioned surgical solutions as an last resort option. I would recommend him highly.

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.
