08/11/13 5 5 5 5 I found Dr. Mostachfi's office staff to be warm and kind. I was able to go in for my appointment a little earlier than the appointed time and found Dr. Mostachfi to be very attentive, kind and was able to tell me his thoughts on what might be the issue and what the next steps were to solve my problem without speaking 'over my head'. WONDERFUL experience.

13/10/11 5 5 5 5 To me he is helpful and thoughtful doctor. He puts time on you and listens to your problem, then gives you deep smile and helpful comments, he never pushes you to hurry and wrap up the topic, so you feel relax to share your problem with him.  Respond

10/09/11 3 5 1 5 He was very friendly and on time, but ultimately unhelpful. Suffered BPPV for 2 years and waited 6 months for this appointment. It lasted all of 10 minutes. 5 of those being taken up by a hearing test. He told me I had BPPV (already knew that), what BPPV was (already knew that) and sent me out the door. Complete disappointment after waiting so long for help. Could've dropped $20 on a hearing test at any clinic and not had the six month wait to tell me what I (and my referring GP) already knew!  Respond

04/08/11 1 2 4 4 I have never met staff that are as rude and unprofessional as the ones in this office. It was not uncommon to wait for at least an hour past your appointment time and rebooking an appointment was nothing more than a nightmare. while the doctor himself seemed okay, it was impossible for me to get acceptable appointment times for my five yr old daughter. When I could not take an appointment time they offered, they then were going to make my child wait months for a re- check on her ears. The staff felt it was exceptable to play childish games at the expense of my daughters hearing. I informed my family doctor who promptly got me an appointment with a different doctor, who has professional, caring staff working in his office. If you need a fabulous doctor call Roy Cheung.Neither he nor his staff would ever treat a child badly.  Respond

01/03/11 5 4 1 3 I found this doc to be very abrasive and rude. Unwilling to listen to anything beyond his own focus. He was blunt with me and to the point with little to no explanation. He may be the best with his hands, but his bed side manner needs some definite improvement.  Respond

10/01/11 5 5 5 5 This young doctor is patient, kind, a good listener, and didn't make me feel stupid to my self-diagnosis series of questions gleaned from surfing the internet. I was freaked out after having had odd symptoms such as blocked hearing, frozen facial nerves, dizziness, and recurring buzzing, ringing and hissing noises in my ears. Meuniere's disease, doc? NO, you'd feel much dizzier and be nauseated. Swimmer's ear, doc? No, the area would be inflamed.He did not push medication, but kept trying. Off to a CT scan next. Thank goodness-he made me feel sane. Invisible maladies require trust from patient to doctor and reverse. Superb office staff as well. Gives me hope in the medical system.  Respond

18/03/09 5 5 5 5 Dr.Mostachfi was wonderful with my 3 year old! He came to talk to us before and after my sons tubes were put in at the hospital. He makes sure that all you questions are answered before making any decisions. He has great bedside manner and really communicates well with kids and people with disabilities. I would HIGHLY reccommend him!  Respond

26/02/09 5 5 5 5 Daughter has now had 3rd set of tubes with removal of adnoids. Dr M has been kind, gentle and as uninvasive as possible. Because of him, my daughter hears. Blessings to him always. He has always come to "touch base" both before and after the surgery. Highly recommend, as if you hadn't already guessed.  Respond

13/03/07 5 1 2 Very unhelpful. I went to this ENT specialist as a referral from my family doctor. His attitude was absolutely horrible. As a result of seeing this doctor, I immediately asked my family doctor for a second opinion, and went to see another ENT specialist.  Respond
