The office visit was very concerning! In November, I had a left earache and went to Immediate Care and they gave me antibiotics. A few weeks later I had an MRI scheduled of the neck that was previously on the books. A radiologist, physician, stated I also had mastoiditis. I had a repeat MRI in April and a different radiologist, dr., said mastoiditis also. I was advised to go see an ENT. I went to dr. Han. He never ever ever looked at the MRI. He said MRIs could be wrong. He said I had swimmer's ear.

I was visiting my mom from LA and my aunt recommended I see Dr. Han for another opinion on my sleep apnea issues. He was thorough and explained what he did in a manner that I was able to understand. He also did a couple of things that the two other ENTs in LA did not do. He scanned my sinuses and checked them. His recommendations made so much more sense. I still have sleep apnea, but he was able to tell me what the process will be when I go back and have surgery, and suggested a turbenant (not sure of spelling) reduction to allow me to breath easier even after the sleep apnea surgery, treating allergies, and losing some weight (haha). I really liked Dr. Han and want to do my surgery here and not back home, that's how comfortable i felt with him!!

While the doctor may be a decent guy, his office staff is awful. They took money I told them I would not owe and refused to give me a refund even though my insurance company called them and told them I wouldn’t owe anything.

waited 3 weeks to be seen.. he spent less than one minute with me. Didn't listen to a word that I said. He just kept insisting that I needed a hearing test. Will not be returning.

Excellent! Explained surgical procedure to my elderly parent in a way she would understand without insulting her intelligence. Very patient and kind. Also, he ran on time. Which is also a huge bonus. His office staff who schedules surgery is also amazing. Would definitely recommend.

I am very happy with Dr. Han as my doctor for the past 4 years. He recently took care of my neighbors son and they could not have been happier. Their son's tonsillectomy (and healing) went so well that I just want to post my appreciation to him and his office.

Been having sinus problems all my life and have seen a local ENT. I want to say that I really trust Dr. Han. He treated my sinuses with antibiotics and then finally did surgery. He explained everything and made me feel comfortable that I didn't even worry. Michelle was great too. My surgery went quicker than we thought and my recovery was pretty fast too. I am so glad that I finally did this because I don't have that headache caused by that pressure under my eyes. I recommend Dr. Han.

Terrible. He was training a student at the time of my exam. I came in with possible dysfunctional Eustachian tube. The examination last a whole 21/2 -3 minutes. He looked in my ears quickly. Asked a few questions and then pushed his forefingers very hard on my upper jaw muscles. Told me to open my mouth. I could hardly open my mouth with the very hard pressure he was putting on the sides of my jaw. Then he said, it can possibly be TMJ. Don't eat crunchy foods only soft. That was it!
