Awhile back Dr. Wadhwa was my 3rd option on my tonsils as 2 other ENT has different diagnoses. Dr. Wadhwa exam was very detail. After awhile, Dr. Wadhwa did tonsil surgery and the pathology report agreed with what he said.. This dr reminds me of the old fashion doctor and after seen many ENT, Dr. Wadhwa is the only ENT I will see. This year I actually had to fight my insurance (thanks hmo) to see him. He is one the best in San Diego area.

Amazing doctors. I have seen both Dr. Wadhwa and Dr. MacEwan. They are both caring and kind and helped to treat my sinus infections. I am forever grateful for their care and the fact that I can now BREATHE!!

Horrible. Treated beyond poorly by office staff and Mr. Wadhwa. I also waited for over an hour too, and the office staff had the never acknowledged that I had been waiting. I was ultimately not treated properly for a serious condition and was given no prognosis or proper treatment for my condition. I’m back to where I started when I was looking for doctor. Don’t waste your time with Rancho ENT.

Wadwah was fine. The staff member in charge of forms failed to get my disability papers mailed correctly, after screwing up the dates I missed work causing me to miss the 20 day filing grace period thus causing me to lose my benefits right before Christmas. :( so disappointed!
