Dr. Megahed is the best! My daughter is 10 and has been with him since she was 7 months old. He has performed 2 surgeries on her, and I would have such a hard time trusting her with anyone else. He takes the time to get to know his patients and their parents as well. There is never a long wait at the office and everyone is so kind and respectful. I HIGHLY recommend taking your child to see him and his staff.

He is an amazing NS. He did an amazing job with both of my LOs surgeries and she adores him. He is good with kids and he is very informative. He does seem to have an aversion to anything that will hurt a LO like removing stitches and will shy away from conversations that may be painful to the parent but I still highly recommend him and won't take my LO anywhere else.
