What People Say About Dr. Mahmood Mahdavi, MD

I had an adult tonsillectomy and my adenoids removed at the age of 29. Dr. Mahdavi was efficient, intelligent and empathetic. I would recommend any adult that is having issues with their tonsils visit this Dr. From the initial consultation to the post op, Mahdavi was thorough and precise. I had no issues during my recovery and his nurse made an effort to reach out to me and my husband throughout to ensure I was ok. Wonderful experience.
