What a disappointment. Dr. Sambur is arrogant, rude, and retaliatory. He possesses zero bed-side manner and he speaks to you as if you’re 5. Go and see... you’ll think of me immediately. I vividly remember him scoping me, (not gently and quite unskillfully), and then when I innocently and reflexively coughed while I had a tube up my nose, he proceeds to tell me in a disgusted and condescending tone, “cover your mouth when you cough”. Like... are you serious buddy? I’m trembling with discomfort because your anesthetic didn’t work and your tube is literally pressing against my involuntary gag reflex, and all you can tell me 5x is “cover your mouth”. Some ENT. I always respect doctors, but he was a plain jerk. You could tell what he was in his youth. The same guy. He never takes calls either. Good luck asking him to go over bloodwork. ProHealth losing tons of revenue with this guy. I know 6 other families who feel even worse than I do. Stay away.

Good Doctor. Took care of my issues. Cyst in throat and surgical removal. As well as some other ENT related issues. He seems to care and I trust him and his expertise to take care of me in the future. Very bright man with a good bedside manners. Regarding scheduling appointments it's up to Pro health and of course his availability. One man can only do so much in a day.
