I needed surgery on my septum. I can breath again. I can not thank him enough.

Had thyroid surgery with him. He was a good listener, surgery went very well and I am very happy with results.

I went to Dr. Oliaei due to a strange dripping sensation in my ears. Rather than trying to help the problem I came in for, he began assessing a hearing exam that I took for my mild hearing loss. He began to speak harshly of the office I go to for my hearing loss and demanded I get an in house hearing test. After an hour and half of tests, he tells me he can do nothing for me and leaves. He never addressed the issue I came in for and even decided that my hearing loss is nonexistent. I wont return
Hi Grace, I'm sorry that you had a bad experience. We have had many instances of inaccurate outside hearing testing and that is why on occasion we ask to have these repeated. We have ZERO vested interest in ordering a hearing test other than ensuring accurate diagnosis for our patients. I can not discuss specifics of your medical issues online but please give us a call and i would be happy to discuss and hopefuly answer or resolve any lingering issues or questions. Sincerely, Dr. OLIAEI

Dr Oliaei is an amazing clinician whose intellect and knowledge is off the charts. He is kind and he listens to you and he explains EVERYTHING so thoroughly so you feel comfortable and understand what is happening to you and WHY it is happening. He spent a good amount of time with me and did not rush through his diagnosis or treatment. Lastly, he treated me and my husband with respect and spoke to us like he really really cared. I would absolutely recommend him to a family member or friend.

Dr. Oliaei is amazing. Our son had a complicated surgery. Once Dr. Oliaei was inside, he found it was even more complicated than originally anticipated. He removed a cyst, repaired deviated septum and elected not to open up the underdeveloped sinuses in the face. It wasn't necessary and saved our son pain and recovery time. Overall, recovery was still expected to be very unpleasant. Our son recovered with one day of pretty severe pain and the rest wasn't bad at all. Highly recommended.
