Utterly buffoonish office staff. They failed to schedule a surgery - I had to call them, weeks later. When the surgery was scheduled, it was scheduled before the request (let alone authorization) for approval was sought from my insurer; Surgery scheduler said "this is how we do it." No call or letter to cancel said surgery because of a lack of authorization - I went to where the surgical appointment letter said to go, only to discover I wasn't scheduled. NO contact from them since then.
After waiting for an appointment for over 4 months, Dr. Fife did not have my CT scan and therefore had no way of moving forward. If I went to a meeting at work unprepared as he did, I would no longer be employed. He as arrogant in regards to not being prepared as if it was somehow my fault he did not managed to get the CT scan to his office prior to our appointment.
Hello, I sincerely apologize on behalf of SacENT for the inconvenience you have experienced with reviewing your CT scan. Typically, your primary care provider will send our office your CT scan alongside your referral. It seems, however, that this was not the case in your situation. Please reach out to me at sacent@sacent.com with your full name and telephone number so that I may look into this matter and assist you further.

Dr. FIfe was very personable, he put me at ease. He completed a procedure, that a previous specialist could not. I thought the process was going to take several visits, but Dr. Fife was able to perform the procedure in one visit. I will recommend Dr. FIfe, and the entire staff to all my colleagues and associates.

Dr. Fife is the type of doctor that inspires a glowing review. He is knowledgeable and professional yet compassionate and personable. My daughter was referred to him, and when I needed an ENT doc myself, I did not hesitate in choosing Dr. Fife. He listened and addressed all of my concerns. He was proactive about helping me feel better, and thanks to his brilliant surgical skills, I am feeling infinitely better post-sinus surgery. I am forever grateful to Dr. Fife!
