I can’t say enough positive reviews about Dr. Ochi! My daughter was diagnosed with sudden hearing loss during the pandemic. It was extremely scary for all of us knowing her hearing might never come back. Dr. Ochi took the time to explain everything from possible causes to treatment now and in the future. He is extremely knowledgeable at what he does and is very compassionate! He took the time to answer all our questions. We never felt rushed. 10/10! He was worth traveling almost an hour for each visit.

Dr. Ochi was so wonderful with my son. We finally found a doctor who understood our frustrations with our sons health. He has had nothing but problems with his tonsils for over a year now. We battled pneumonia, snoring, strep throat, and tonsillitis endlessly since he turned 5. Other doctors seemed not to listen to my concerns or take them seriously. One visit with Dr. Ochi and he saw and addressed my frustrations and concerns. We are having surgery with him Sept 1. Cannot wait!

Even thought Dr. Ochi has a very busy practice, he spends a lot of time asking & answering questions. His patience seems endless. Dr. Ochi is the most caring and concerned physician I have had the pleasure meeting.
