Horrible. Husband was diagnosed with malignant tumor in sinus cavity. Their office would not return my call, did not fax over information to Oncologist or Surgeon, until I drove to their office and asked what was taking so long. They booked an appointment with the surgeon but didn't call us to let us know and we were put down as a "no show", gave surgeon the wrong phone number for us, when they had the correct number on file. Extremely disappointed.

He took my tonsils out last week and did a great job of explaining both the procedure and what to expect from the recovery process. His staff has been very helpful and prompt about returning phone calls for the questions I've had. Hopefully I won't need to see an ENT again anytime soon but if I do I will definitely go back to Dr Cate!
