Dr. Tarro performed my sinus surgery and made himself available for regular and unscheduled follow-ups. Absolutely great demeanor and professionalism!

Dr. Tarro is a very kind and considerate Doctor. He takes the time to listen to his patient, and offers advice as needed. This was my first visit to an ENT specialist and I would recommend him to anyone who wants a Doc who truly cares about his patient.

Terrible job on the surgery. Not breathing that much better. Then was charged over $500 for a 10 second scope that I would have never approved if I knew I would be on the hook for $500+. I wish there was a choice for zero stars

Yup! Do this! Took the time and answered all my questions. I haven't had long waits in the waiting room either. Just had surgery by Dr Tarro, all is going well. Not my first ENT but by far the best.
