Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Khetarpal "Founded on a vision of excellence, we are deeply interested and committed to your welfare. Our approach is interactive and thoughtful. Each patient responds to a different style. Some come with pre-conceived ideas of what they would want from the visit whereas others are just looking for a solution to their problems or even a quick fix. While I try to keep my approach flexible, I also believe that information must be shared so that the encounter is meaningful for both of us. Sometimes during my exam, I may find other problems such as sleep apnea, or imbalance or a swelling in the neck or allergies, different from what you came in to see me. In keeping with our comprehensive approach to your ENT health I may recommend treatment or tests for those as well. Our goal is to attempt to give you the highest quality care we can by incorporating ideas of old and new as well as the latest technologies. Being a physician-surgeon is a privilege one that I treasure. "

Dr. Khetarpal Says:

I thank all my patients for posting surveys about us.I always strive to provide 5 star service to our patients in terms of caring and understanding, technical skill and knowledge, compassion as well as a discussion about their condition. In so many years of my practice, I have never not given the best to my patients. Achieving the outcomes that you desire requires both of us to cooperate fully with each other. 


Patient Comments (1)

Very pleased with service. Fully informed about CT scan and about Dr Khetarpal's PIVA balloon sinuplasty. Excellent results from surgery without much pain. Had nasal congestion for about a week after surgery, expected from turbinate reduction. Would recommend Dr Khetarpal very highly. No more...more
