If you need an E.N.T this is not the person to see. This A-hole double and triple books people. 2 procedures both times waited 4-5 hours past my appointment time. Was promised first appointment by his staff for follow up when I said I wanted a different doctor, guess what he double booked me again! Then a very condescending young lady advised us all he was in utica doing a procedure and would of course be late and had no other info. I spoke to this jack ass (I would not stop calling) he blamed it on the medical field. I don't know if he thinks i'm stupid but to see him 4 times and have over 10 hours of wait time is unreal. I was told by my family doc to go to him again I can't stand him and hoping some others will come forward. I would like to send a strong message to him and his rude staff that this will not be tolerated.

He's a guy who knows his stuff. I too have had to wait, but who else is there? Competent ENT's are difficult to find.
No excuse for rudeness, though.

I to have had trouble with at that office but not with the Dr. but with his staff. The girls that work behind desk are so rude and think they are pretty special. When asked to do something beyond paying your co-pay they seem as though you are asking them to jump through hoops or something.They are inconvienced by having to wait on the Dr's. patients. Maybe they should look into and field of work. So I'm not blaming the Dr. he jusy needs a new staff of over paid *itiches

I have to agree he is not a very good doctor. His bedside mannors are freaking horable he is soo rude. He told me that I was a over protective mother and my son did not need tubes. My son was 18 months and had 23 ear infections. He did not want to put tubes in my ears. I had a 8 30 am apt and he did not even get into the office until 10 am. Dr aplox in slocum dixon is sooo much better a lot more nicer less waiting time and knows a lot more and is just a great doctor. Glad I see I am not the only one who does not liek him.

went in there after breaking my nose in a drunken fall down in florida. waited two hours for my scheduled appointment, saw him for all of 10 minutes and was charged for 4 different procedures. When BCBS EOB came in and I had to pay for 4 deductables, I formally claimed fraudulent billing. I ended up paying just the one deductible. His billing staff is very agressive.

Staff is rude when you call. They don't want to take any messages for the doctor and if they do take them he never receives them because there is no call back. It is very hard to get apoointment when you are sick and need to be seen within one-two days and they give appointment for 3 weeks away. Dr chafhe is very pleasant to me and caring but I can't and will not deal with his office staff anymore.

Elizabeth Redd and Cynthia Fisher at Bassett Health (in Herkimer) are very good. Dr. Obeid said my granddaughter needed emergency surgery to repair a retracting eardrum and when a second opinion was obtained from Dr. Fisher, her eardrum was not retracting, so surgery would have been unnecessary and very tramatic on a 14 month old.

I worked with Chahfe at St.Es,he is one of the best.He does book way to many procedures for the same day and is miserable to work for by the end of the day,but thats the hospitals fault because they let him do whatever he wants. Obeid is a hack,worked with him also. Obeid is clueless and contaminates himself constantly during surgery and when you tell him he needs to re-glove he justs continues on contaminated.Don't ever go to him.
