Dr. S was referred by my doctor and the very moment I step on that office you know you have a world class MD providing you with excellent medical care. On a professional level he is very thorough during examination and was not rushing seeing you and quickly does it all without going to his office for multiple visits. Outstanding is the right word. On a personal level, he is very polite, sincere and really likes what he is doing. I work in a medical field and we can differentiate the good and bad

I would definitely recommend Dr. Sadoughi! He was attentive and very effective in his treatment strategy. He quickly returned all of my calls and was patient in answering my questions. Overall, my experience was very positive.

Great doctor! Takes his time to explain everything in plain and simple terms and makes you see the whole body connection and recommends other specialists as needed. Dr. Sadoughi is very methodical and detailed in his assessment and treatment and he never gets tired of answering your questions, even the most unrelated ones. He performed my second sinus surgery and he was very reassuring, realistic, and it went well. I've seen many ENTs the past 20 years and he's the best!!

5.0 star rating 1/13/2017 I saw Dr. Sadoughi sometime in November for a problem I was having with my tonsils. When I first arrived at the office the girl, named Jessica, that was checking in was super nice. She helped me with my forms, and the wait was not long at all. I saw him like maybe 5 minutes after checking. He walked in, introduced himself, and asked what the problem was. After an evaluation he explained fully what the issues were. He gave me really helpful advice on what I can do to t

I had surgery with Dr.Sadoughi to remove a vocal cord polyp. I was really anxious about the whole thing. I am amazed at how seamless the whole process was. I walked out of the hospital two hours after surgery feeling pretty good. The doctor was patient, professional and did a great job! He put me at ease but also realistically explained everything to me. highly recommend!
