Dr Padhya was good to me. I dont mind people that are straight to the point. I prefer it actually. He is not doing my surgery but he has given me a wonderful recommendation for someone that can do what needs to be done, I respect that he told me the truth about my situation.

My father-in-law was diagnosed with oral cancer in March. Dr. Padhya was extremely curt with our family and he was extremely hard to get in contact with. His bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. It was just over a month from diagnosis that my father-in-law passed away. Once in the hospital, over a weeks time, I never once saw Dr. Padya and never received his condolences. The rest of the critical care team was amazing but Dr. Padhya may need a reminder as to why he chose this profession

I have a Trach in my throat and have had an appointment to see Dr. Padhya for the last month to talk about fixing my throat and removing the Trach. My appointment was for tomorrow 7/19. They just called to tell me they had to reschedule because the doctor would not be in at all. I hear he is notorious for this but is worth the wait. I sure hope so because right now I'm not happy!!!

Dr. Padhya went out of his way to coordinate a tonsillectomy on me while I underwent another surgery. This saved me a second surgery. I had a remarkably easy recovery after the tonsillectomy experiencing nothing more than a regular sore throat for a week.

Dr. Padhya was very quick to see me. He was attentive and listened to my concerns. He was clear and direct with his advice and instructions for me. I highly recommend him to other ENT patients.
