Great with kids. Brought my daughter who snores very loudly. Other doctors kept giving medicine. It was not working at all. Dr. Anand used a camera to look in her nose and saw large adenoids. He performed surgery and now she sleeps better.

Dr Anand explained the procedure perfectly, then performed my surgery flawlessly and painlessly. I've seen many, many, ENT doctors and none surpass the caring, quality, expertise, and delivery of Dr Anand. His office is a calming center which puts the patient at ease before an office visit or procedure and Dr Anand has a way of making one more at ease once he enters the room. Dr Anand also has an outstanding office staff. I am so grateful I found Dr Anand, and I recommend him often.
