This ENT office is run efficiently and with pleasant personnel. I was taken into the doctors office within 10 minutes of my arrival and only waited for the doctor to see me for 5 minutes. The assistant, Rudy, had a nice demeanor and was especially friendly. Dr. Dougherty answered my questions and took care of my ears and there I was, in and out of the office with a positive feeling in less than a half an hour! And that was a very happy and positive experience from start to finish !
