wow - I like the person that wrote the previous review went to this doctor anyway,,, what a HUGE mistake, The office staff is rude, the doctor spends 5 minutes going 'fine' and then a bill shows up for hundreds of dollars. Avoid this doctor at all costs - there are a bunch of ENTs in the LaJolla area, if you call and can get an appt right away its because everyone else read the reviews and BAILED. 'Fine' - I think he charges $75 per 'fine'. Still mad at myself for even thinking of going here

I read some poor reviews of this doctor before I went to him but I disregarded them and went anyway because I was anxious to see him about Tinnitus. They gave me a hearing test and then he spent about 2 minutes looking in my ears and throat. Then he basically said there is no treatment. Then he said we were done. If you think you have Tinnitus, save your money cause this Doctor is ZERO help and you'll basically waste your money on a visit.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Mahdavi for 25+ years. He's our "go-to" ENT..When needing polyps removed, my daughter came from Florida for Dr. Mahdavi's skill and expertise. He's compassionate, conscientious and kind...Hands down, he's an A+ physician

I would not recommend this doctor. I had a typical blown eardrum. This is not a new problem. To help me he went to the path of precription meds 1st before he even cleaned/vaccumed out the wound! I proceeded to buy $6-700 dollars in medicine from target where no generics were available and the pharmacist had never even heard of the meds prescribed. Remember this is for the extremely new and rare ailment of a blown eardrum. Finally on visit 2 he cleaned the wound after I made him aware of my bill and then proceeded to use an insurance code for surgery to treat me. Needless to say my insurance only covers a portion of the expensive surgery codes. In total I was stuck with a $3000+ bill between the prescriptions and the "surgery" codes to heal something that would have been better to be cleaned and healed with time. It took 6mos to heal and I find it hard to believe that anything other than the cleansing of my ear helped expedite this process. This is his specialty, but I am not sure my best interest was at the heart of his diagnosis! Save some money and go elsewhere.

I had a horrible experience with this doctor. They mailed me the forms to fill out which I had ready upon arrival (on time for appt). Gave my co-pay and proceeded to wait 45 mins. for my appt. People who came in AFTER me and had to fill out papers were seen BEFORE me. Woman who checked me in in the exam room was not the nurse but did her best to help. Had a procedure done which at checkout was explained to me that it will be classified at "surgery", but it in fact was not. And, if the insurance baulked at paying I was to pay myself. When I asked how much the procedure costs...I was told hundreds of $$$. They should have explained that to me BEFORE the 2 minute procedure as I am unemployed! The Doctor himself was very unfriendly...

Dr Mahdavi is very skilled, and has been my ENT for over 2 decades now. He always gets me out of the bad sinus infections and knows just what to recommend.

I highly recommend him to anyone with sinus issues. He and his staff are wonderful.

Dor MAhdavi is kind and listens/ and answers to all of my questions. His MAs. PA,s and front desk are friendly. I didn't enjoy the experience with his phone staff. They don't listen and when they don't understand what you need in staead of asking somebody or trying to help, they automatically make u an appointment. that at the end is a waste of time and money. That is the reason i gave the office 4/5 stars
