I visited the doctor as a follow up to an ER visit. CAT scan was done and surgery recommended. He did explain the surgery well and why it needed to be done. In my paperwork I also stated I want to ask about losing my voice. When I reminded dr. about concern he said we could do a scope. He did not tell me or even recommend checking with insurance that it was a "procedure" and outside of my $75 copay. Owing over $2000 currently for ER, I would have declined the scope if explained. In addition, in his write up paperwork concerning the scope he dishonestly stated that "gag reflex prevented mirror examination" he did not even attempt to look in my mouth. He also stated in follow up paperwork "the patient was counseled... which is incorrect. He said "vocal chords look great" and walked out - no explanation given for other possible reasons for my concerns. I changed doctors and was much happier with new ENT's office and was able to have my surgery done with a different doctor.

I went to Dr.Wani due to swelling of my salivary glands. He dilated my salivary gland and did not prescribe me medication nor did he tell me of the pain or recovery time I would endure. I suffered the worst 2 days of my life because I was not prescribed any pain medicine. I had to go to the ER, suffered from hyperventilating and the doctors at the ER could not believe he didn’t prescribe me anything for pain after such a procedure. In conclusion worst doctor I’ve ever seen would not recommend.

Stay away from this one. He doesn't deserve the title "Doctor". I understand he wants to make money. But at least care about the patients a little.

After suffering with sinus symptoms for what seemed like my whole life, I found my saving grace in Dr. Wani! I was seen in the same week I called for my appt, was in and out in less than an hour, got a CT scan in the office during my visit and was posted and scheduled for my balloon sinuplasty all in one visit. I loved the fact that I didn't have to have multiple appointments or wait weeks for a follow up visit to review results. I have never felt better!!!

I saw Dr Wani this morning, his office staff were very courteous and helpful. To my surprise, I was called my the nurse in less than 5 minutes for testing, after which i was escorted back to the waiting room. Before I could get comfortable the other nurse called me in for evaluation by the doctor. I found Dr Wani to be very polite, well mannered and thorough in his examination . I am very satisfies with the results. Total time spent was 1 hr. I will definitely recommend Dr Wani .

I made appointment for my daughter and was hesitant due to serious lack of judgement from another Texas ENT Doc in the past. As a Registered Nurse for more than 40 years I feel I can tell a little something about doctors. Doctor Wani seemed very personable and knows his business which seems to be " SURGERY " and making money. The LVN who assisted us only said the prescription ordered by Dr Wani " must come from compounding pharmacy" I know something simpler could have been ordered .

Dr. Wani was great to say the least! I had a terrible sore throat for about 2 weeks with a fever that would not go away. I finally looked up ENT's in Houston, TX and came across Dr. Wani. I booked my appointment within the same week. The staff was very professional and you could tell they enjoyed there job. Dr. Wani saw me in under 20 minutes after I arrived and prescribed medication. I felt better the next day. I highly recommend him!

Would not recommend to anyone. Doctor should not take "on call" if too busy to actually answer the services call. Patients are better off going somewhere where they can receive follow up care.

After reading poor reviews, I tried to change my initial appointment w Dr. Wani, but was too sick to do so. I went in 4/29/16 suffering the worst sinus infection of my 73 years & was so surprisingly impressed with his professionalism, knowledge, & straightforward diagnosis. Having unsuccessfully treated thrice by my trying-to-be -clever primary care doc, then thrice to the giggle girls at Urgent Care, & thrice by my talking-about-anything-but-my-illness lung specialist, Wani is a blessing!

Worst Doctor I've ever seen. He's there for the money and not the patient and does not care what the patients try to tell him. I waited over an hour and when I tried to tell him why I was there he interrupted and then left and did not come back.
