I didn't feel like he listened to me or respected my opinion. I don't think that he is treating me for the right issue. also he is not responding to my pharmacy who requires additional info to fill the prescription he ordered. so I have a misdiagnosis and no medication. I need to go find another Dr

Dr. Low is very knowledgeable about ENT matters, and is able to assess readily. His staff is outstanding as well. Dr. Low and staff are all very easy to talk to, as they are good listeners, and project a very caring perspective and attitude. I appreciate that immensely.

I was asked three times who referred me. It shouldn't be that complicated to go to an ear nose throat doctor when you have a sinus infection and when the office has my records...

The paperwork concerning the appointment and doctor recommendations for treatment and medications that I received was incorrect and had to be corrected before I left the office. I had to call the office after my appointment to get clarification about the medications I was to take and when.
