Felt rushed and like I couldn't ask him questions. I left without feeling assured that I got the attention needed to my concerns. I paid $200 out of pocket and my appointment wasn't even 15 minutes. Doctor could practice being empathetic/compassionate with patients and LISTENING to what they have to say. I told him what happened in my case and twice he repeated the wrong information/out of order events like it was fact. Take patients' word for it- they know their bodies! Also was not aware of functional/holistic medicine. I said I had sinus congestion that day due to a histamine response & gut issues. He shortly then mentioned my sinuses being inflamed "due to the cold or whatever you've got going on there." Really didn't feel heard or like he truly cared and again was out in a flash. The clinic staff I interacted with were nice though, I just would try another doctor.

My daughter came in with frequent nosebleeds. Dr Lygizios was very kind, explained the procedure, and explained what my daughter should expect. He is very competent and made my daughter feel at ease. Definitely would recommend Dr. Lygizios.

In this day and age, it is rare to find a doctor with such quality clinical skills and who also possesses such a kind and caring bedside manner. I am an RN and travel over 3 hours to have him as my ENT. I highly recommend him in every capacity.
