He walked in with an attitude, spent about five minutes on me, and that was it. He was abrasive and rude. I have a serious condition that needs surgery. Might be ok if all you have is a sinus infection. He's lazy and greedy. Not a moral person.

My entire family has seen him. I have trusted his opinion and expertise for years. Would never consider another ENT. He genuinely listens and cares for his patients.
