Dr. Modi and his staff are excellent. So organized and friendly. Dr. Modi is amazing at finding the root of the problem. My son was his patient and we realized he needed ear tubes and now my daughter is his patient and he found she has infected adenoids. Just so happy with overall diagnosis and procedure to cure problem.

Dr. Modi is an excellent surgeon. He did a great job removing my daughter’s pre-auricular sinus and leaving almost no scar other than a line.

We were referred to Dr Modi for a rare condition for our newborn. First, he gave us an appointment ASAP that week which was so kind when you’re a parent trying to address something for a newborn child. His matter-of-fact approach was super reassuring. He is a leading expert in his field and it shows in his knowledge and the way he addresses questions. Very rational and logical which for us was what we needed given how emotional and sensitive the situation was. We trust in his competence and are so happy we found him so early on our journey.

Dr. Modi did not tell my 11 year old daughter or I what he was going to do. I thought he was going to look into her nose with a light. Instead, he blew lidocaine directly into her nose. She let out a scream. I wasn't sure what it was. She said it was burning. At that point he said it was lidocaine to numb her nose. Then he shoved what I'm assuming was a bronchoscope into her nose to view her trachea WITHOUT telling us what he was doing. What he did was unacceptable. True, his diagnose was correct, and performing a bronchoscopy was what was needed. What was not acceptable was the way he did it. After he was done, he left the room with her still crying. Not acceptable at all.
