I was very impressed with my experience at this doctor’s office. My first visit with Dr. Aijaz Alvi was so great by how helpful and kind he was and how fast he was able to help me. A lot of doctors don’t realize how important it is to have help and someone understand your medical needs the first point of contact is crucial! Dr. Alvi makes me feel comfortable in knowing my needs when I am having a bad day. He takes his time and answers all my questions so I will understand.

Dr. Alvi is a very smart, experienced, compassionate, and kind person! He is the BEST ENT around the NW Suburbs. Another Dr. misdiagnosed me. Dr. Alvi literally saved my life.
