One word describes this doctor awesome. He is the kindest, most personable, doctor I have ever met. He was not in a rush, listened to me, and responded in a professional manner using language I could understand. He discusses all avenues of option and treatment modality. He is a gifted health care professional who is compassionate and knowledgeable.

Dr Alava operated on my husband to remove an aggressive skin cancer on the side of his face near his left ear, and did so with utter professionalism, excellence and an amazing bedside manner. He spent as much time with us as we required for him to explain the procedure, what he found and also made excellent recommendations for further and future treatment, if necessary. He was helpful, kind and considerate and we would recommend him to any one requiring any ENT surgery.

I met Dr. Ibrahim Alava at LBJ Hospital in Houston, TX. He performed my Nasal Polyps removal several months ago and has been my follow-up ENT provider since. Every visit I have had with Dr. Alava, he has provided exceptional customer service. He is punctual with appointments and is impressively know ledged in his field of work. I would without hesitation recommend Dr. Alava to my loved ones.
