I've struggled with sinus congestion for years-constant use of decongestant sprays just to be able to breathe. The thought of sinus surgery really scared me because I'd heard lots of horror stories. Dr. Alvi promised the surgery to repair my deviated septum and clean out my sinuses would be painless and effective and he didn't lie. Anytime I called with questions, he returned my call personally. He's kind and genuinely cares. I'm 100% better thanks to him. Simply put, he's the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!

Dr. Alvi recently took our four year old son's tonsils out. He did an excellent job and the recovery was great. We have been happy with every visit to his office. Everyone is always friendly, the wait time is minimal and we trust Dr. Alvi's opinions and recommendations.

I had terrible sinus issues for years and decided to finally get it taken care of. Dr Alvi was quick and to the point and didn't make me try a million different things before finding the one that would work. We did an allergy test and ct of my sinuses and decided sinus surgery would be the best route for my issue. I was asleep for surgery but the recovery was painless. The surgery was on a Wednesday and I was back at work the following Monday. Dr. Alvi was great and I highly recommend him!

Its scary to be told you may have cancer. At my initial visit with Dr. Aijaz Alvi, he took the time to sit and genuinely listen to my wife & I giving us comfort that he (and my team of doctors) know what they are doing to tackle my health issue. Dr. Alvi performed successful oral surgery, resulting in removal of a cancerous lesion with very little post surgery pain. My wife said he is wonderful. I asked her if she would say the same thing if my outcome wasn't as successful? She said yes!

I visited doctor for my daughters nose. As mentioned by other reviewers that doctor did listened to us patiently and checked inside nose with a lighted camera. I thought it is just like my daughter primary care physician uses torch light in every doctors office. But when i received the bill it was termed as surgery and it was charged for $400 and i ended up paying it out of my pocket. To me that sounds very unfair. I just want others to be aware that.

I saw Dr. Alvi twice last week for a chronic ear infection. His staff was wonderful and he was thorough in discussing my history with me before checking me. From the beginning to the end of the week, my symptoms worsened, and he gave me a few options. I liked that he discussed my situation first to understand it, secondly to explain my options and most of all allowing me to be an active part of my own treatment. I would recommend Dr. Alvi to anyone who wants to be involved in their own care!
