Dr. Anwar is skilled and dedicated at his trade. He is thorough and compassionate and I felt so comfortable having him look at my sinus issues. He's a great listener and takes the time to explain everything in terms I understand. Most of all I appreciate that he did not push procedures or medications on me! I feel like he genuinely cared about my well being and I trust his opinion as he's extremely knowledgeable.
