I have been in the U.S. for the last eight years and honestly, he is the best doctor I've ever seen. He is one of the few doctors who is both knowledgeable and caring He is goal-oriented, trustworthy, and quite modest, unlike most of the doctors. As parents of 15 month old baby, we are truly grateful to him. We feel lucky to have met him after a couple of bad ENT doctors. I would recommend him to anyone without any hesitation.
