Speaks in a way the everyday person can understand, answers questions, great surgeon, awesome bedside manner; he is a busy guy so it was not so fun to wait 3 months for surgery but I think it was worth the wait

I went to Dr. Popat based on a recommendation from an ENT. I was told that Dr. Popat was the best in the Buffalo area, but his office was not easy to work with. After my original consult I reached-out to Dr. Popat's office three separate times with questions and received no support. I decided to go elsewhere due to Dr. Popat's office lack of patient support - then as proof I made the right decision he banned me from his group's practice. I strongly recommend going elsewhere if you can.

On my appt on 10/29 the doctor did little to review my file and said he would copy the treatment plan offered at another hospital. He spent more time going on a mini-rant about how busy he is now that more people have insurance due to Obamacare than actually considering my case. Overall, he appears unconcerned about prospective patients and is dismissive of patient concerns.
