Dr Namdar diagnosed a peculiar type of vertigo. He treated it with acupuncture and referred me for specialized vestibular rehabilitation, both of which improved my balance. He was thorough, very knowledgeable, always kind and gentle. I recommend him highly.

I am glad they are taking all the right precautions in these days of COVID. They emailed me all my paperwork in advance, and I was brought into the room almost as soon as I arrived. Dr. Namdar was prompt and very courteous. He listened to everything I had to tell him about my condition (and it was a LOT). He asked very good questions which I had not thought about previously. He was most gentle with his hands with the procedure he had to do for me. He gave me many options to consider and re-emphasized that it was OK for me to take as long as I need to make my final decision what to do next. Altogether was positive experience and would highly recommend to others. Gave great feedback to my primary doctor who had referred me here

Doctor provided no useful information. I was told to go somewhere else for better results. They had me wait in the waiting room for over 45 minutes just to have the doctor spend 5 minutes assessing my condition. I needed serious help, but was not taken seriously.

Terrible time. Overcharged, provided no useful advice and was forced to wait for over 45 minutes. Consultation time was a total of 5 minutes. Was charged over $500 for a simple visit. The only "useful" advice was to get a consultation somewhere else. It was also almost impossible to book this appointment, because of the constant unavailability of the office. They never picked up the phone and had to call about 20 times in order to book an inconvenient appointment. Terrible doctor. Do not recommend.

Took my mom to see Dr. Namdar after spending the whole night in emergency room. They accommodated us with no prior appointment, the treatment room was ready for us upon arrival, and Dr. Namdar and his staff were super professional. They even cleaned off all the blood that had caked on my mom's face and hands, and put all our blood-stained towels in a plastic bag for us. By the time we left, the bleeding had stopped and mom was so well taken care of and clean as though nothing had happened.

I’ve been going to Dr.Namdar for quite some time now, in fact something like 14 years for a regularly scheduled ear cleaning. He was recommended to me all those years ago by my previous ENT who moved. He has always been there to listen to my concerns and advises on solutions that can be used if I need them. I would highly recommend him as he’s thorough and kind.

I've been going for years to this other ENT for my ongoing sinus issues. Every time he used to scope me it was such a big production and so painful. Then my insurance changed and I saw Dr. N for the first time. He did the scoping and removal of the mucus with such delicate hands, I didn't even know the whole thing could be so painless. Glad I discovered this office.

Seems like there are mixed reviews on how good this doctor is but I'll say firsthand that I did not get the greatest service. I didn't feel heard when I voiced my concerns and he kept giggling which I didn't understand because I was legitimately concerned about my ailment. He rushed everything and I believe did not take an accurate sample of what I asked for. I feel like he just wanted to cash out not treat.He's like every other smug superiority complex having doctor that is typical of the city!

Dr. Namdar has treated my mother for vertigo, did my thyroid surgery a few years ago, and last week he did my son's tonsillectomy. He's the most sought-after ENT in our medical center, and all the employees and their families prefer to see him for all their ENT issues. Compassionate, excellent bedside manner, and most knowledgeable about all aspects of his specialty.
