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.
in Hobart, IN |
Very knowledgeable and addressed my issue immediately to improve my life quality!
in Griffith, IN |
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.
in Portage, IN |
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.
Indiana |
In a word - dismissive.
in Valparaiso, IN |
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!
