Hampton, VA |
I visited Dr. Lindsay in June 2017 for an issue I was having with my right ear. Since May I had been experiencing tinnitus daily and one to two days a week my ear was blocked/clogged which diminished my hearing in that ear for several hours up to an entire day. I left Dr. Lindsay's office the day of my first appointment with no clear diagnosis but a follow-up hearing test was scheduled for two weeks later. In between my first visit and the date of the follow-up hearing test my symptoms increase

Dr. Lindsay excels at his specialty. My 4 year old son was at Patients First every weekend. He was constantly sick with ear infections and respitory problems. We went to see Dr. Lindsay and he fixed him up and now he has a healthy, excellent quality of life. He has not been sick in over a year!!! My son had ear tubes put in, adenoids removed and a tonsillectomy. He currently takes allergy drops like a pro. It is truly amazing how far my son has come. My son loves to go see Dr. Lindsay.

Dr L was on call covering for Dr Queen, he was short, and lacked compassion. I wish Dr Queen had been on call. He always covers everything thoroughly and truly cares.
After hours calls are generally reserved for new issues in our local emergency rooms. Our post-operative patients with an ongoing issues are also encouraged to call with questions. Most routine concerns should not and cannot be handled by phone. Referring a patient to their doctor or an urgent care for an acute issue during non office hours is fairly common.

I have had sinus issues for more than 45 years. Since Dr. Lindsay began treating me in the summer of 2015, I have seen vast improvements i. He performed several sinus surgical procedures on me in October 2015. Since then, my symptoms are less severe and my sinus infections less frequent. When they do flare up, Dr. Lindsay treats me rapidly and aggressively, minimizing my 'down time' and speeding up my recovery. I've seen many doctors over the years for my sinus problems, but he's the best!

I am 7 weeks post turbinate reduction and septoplasty surgery and wish I had the surgery years ago. I can BREATHE. The staff is amazing. Dr. Lindsay thoroughly explains everything from the risks involved to taking care of yourself post surgery. I have adopted his slogan, Dilution is the solution to the pollution. I did everything I was supposed to do and am extremely pleased with the results. I highly recommend for those who have ongoing sinus infections to see Dr. Lindsay.

During my tonsillectomy post op appt, Dr. Lindsay was very dismissive of my concerns. He only answered my questions stating, you just had surgery, you're going to have pain. My question was never about the pain, but the feeling of something being lodged in my throat, which appeared the week following my surgery. He cut me off several times as I tried to be clear about my issues, even saying Ok, BYE loudly as he walked out of the office. His behavior during this visit was extremely rude.
Dr. Lindsay takes time to really listen. He is compassionate and understanding. Thank You Dr.Lindsay i appreciate you. See you soon.
in Yorktown, VA |
Dr. Lindsay very accessible and takes the time to truly understand patient needs. I see Dr. Lindsay exclusively as he provides services that are rare: courteous and efficient staff, trust based doctor-patient relationships, and outstanding medical care. Combinations such as these are almost impossible to find and and are greatly appreciated.
