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.

Dr. Modi is a fantastic doctor- his manner is kind and caring to the young children and patient and thorough with me. Dr. Modi explains all treatments that he believes necessary, the alternatives and why he recommends what he recommends. Dr. Modi's office is clean and bright and the staff is efficient, cheerful and very helpful. Dr. Modi's office administration is excellent- appointments are seen on time- there is rarely any waiting to see the doctor at your appointment time. My 2 year old twins had ear tube surgery as Dr. Modi recommended and it was transformative to them. I had a great deal of trepidation and Dr. Modi was patient and thorough and guided us through the entire process and follow-up with kindness and care and expertise. I recommend Dr. Modi without reservation.

Dr. Modi is an excellent doctor. He provided a clear and definitive diagnosis, answered all of our questions and guided us through the process of addressing what could have become a life threatening condition. Dr. Modi's staff also took great care of us as we prepared to send our infant daughter in for surgery. The surgery itself was a success, and I have absolute confidence in his skill as a surgeon.
