I just returned from my visit with Dr. Mazer. Please extend my most sincere appreciation to my PCP for his referral to Dr. Mazer! I found Dr. Mazer to be an experienced, knowledgeable, accomplished professional! Dr. Mazer was patient and respectful in his dealings with me. He was receptive to input from me and discussed @ length and in detail his thinking in regard to my concerns relative to the reason for my visit with him.

I live in Encinitas, there are many ENTs between here and Alvarado, and I would go to Dr. Mazer without question over all of them.After seeing 6 specialists trying to get to the bottom of my vertigo & ear/sinus pressure,I consulted Dr. Mazer.He was able to pinpoint what was going on with me and has provided a treatment plan ever since.Anytime I fly or experience any other related issues I check in with him and he helps me get back to “normal “.His knowledge supersedes any other I’ve seen.

Dr. Mazer came highly recommended by my son's internist for diagnosis and removal of growths in his salivary gland and roof of mouth. His performance was impeccable. Dr. Mazer explained the issues and procedures and confirmed understanding. The office visit was comfortable and not rushed. Office staff is competent and cordial. It's obvious to me that Dr. Mazer and his staff are invested in providing quality service.

He is the worst doctor I have seen in my entire life. Beware, DO NOT PLAN TO VISIT HIM. His staff are simply the rudest. His office is simply the oldest in town. If you have missed jurassic park, you still have time to see it. He is so self centered pathetic snob. I really hope that he gets punished and lose his license for the way he treats his patients. He simply does what he thinks right without even bothering to listen to your symptoms or complaint. Never recommend to anyone!

I have seen Dr. Mazer for years regarding allergy related sinus issues. He has performed one MAJOR and one minor surgery to correct problems I've suffered with for decades. He is very responsive and his staff are professional and courteous. I highly recommend Dr. Mazer to anyone looking for a doctor who listens to your concerns and thoroughly explains his treatment plan.

the first time i saw dr mazer, i handed him a report from SONUS. on that report it clearly said BPPV and loss of balance, dizzyness and tinnitus. he ignored those and ordered an MRI. he thought i had a tumor. the MRI showed no tumor but detected MIGRAINE. he ignored the MIGRAINE, said a hearing aid would not help me and kicked me out on the 2nd visit. my nuerologist gave me a prescription for a hearing aid THAT DOES HELP with hearing, balance and the migraines. THEN HE WROTE A BAD LETTER TO SSA.

This guy is horrible! Has a temper tantrum over the phone and said the growth looked malignant but that he couldn't get me a appointment for 3 to 4 weeks. Really?! How can you tell a person that and expect them to stress it out 3 to 4 weeks. Never going back.
