Dr. Zandifar Patient Reviews
I can confidently say that Dr. Zandifar has changed my life. My nose has always been an obstacle in my life, a point of insecurity, a center of pain, like a foreign objet that simply didn’t belong. Now, as I write this, I can see what it feels like to actually breathe. Dr. Zandifar’s professionalism, knowledge and kindness have helped this (surprisingly painless) journey be one that made me incredibly happy. My greatest appreciation goes to him and the entire staff, though there is no amount of thanks that could cover how you have made me feel.

My experience at the Osborne Head & Neck Institute has been very relieving. With a screw stuck in my sinus cavity, I was panicked at the situation, but Dr. Zandifar assured me I would be in good care during the entire process. The entire staff, from the waiting room to the surgery room has been nothing but a delight! They answered all the questions and reassured my fears that everything would be fine, and it was! My healing was quick and painless. I would certainly refer them to anyone in need. Thank you to all of the staff that has been on my journey with me. You guys are the best!

I absolutely loved the results of my surgery. Dr. Zandifar has magic hands. Since the very first appointment, I felt that I found my doctor. Before meeting Dr. Zandifar, I saw other doctors that rushed through the appointment and prescribed medication that weren’t helping.
The very next day after my surgery I felt relief. I could breathe better and it felt better each day. Now 1 year after my surgery I can see an incredible results as well as I forgot what it feels like to have a stuffy nose.
Thank you Dr. Zandifar and team!

Dr. Zandifar was my surgeon and I can’t be happier with the results. He’s a genuinely caring person and he made me very comfortable. I always enjoyed my appointment interacting with him and he brings great positive energy. The entire staff was very competent and friendly. I’m very grateful for the work he did on my nose.

I really appreciate just how patient you were with explaining my unique situaton and having real answers to all my questions. I went to other doctors before looking for solutions, and was never given any actual information on my personal condition. From my first appointment with you, you used a timy camera to see what my problem was, and explained to me in a real time what I was seeing on the monitor inside my own head.
You met with me several times to explain my options before finally decided on surgery and it was one of the best decisions of my life. In addition to being a brillant doctor, you were gently and precise from the procedure throughout the entire recvery process. You opened up my airway in a way I never thought possible as I have had this condition my entire life. This procedure has improved my quality of life from my ability to sleep and exercise to my ability to smell and taste things. I was also really delf conscious about altering the appearance of the nose I had known my entire life, but you did such a beautiful job that my nose looks beter now than I could’ve possibly expected.
To future patients considering procedures from Dr. Zandifar:
You can trust Dr. Zandifar. He makes the procedure and process as quick and painless as possible, and as far as the results, he’s not just a doctor, he’s an artist.
I have suffered from sinus problems for 5 years now. Five years ago , I had sinus surgery. It worked for a couple of years. My dentist, Dr. Babagoli recommended me to come see Dr. Nach because I was suffering with severe congestion. Dr. Nach referred me to Dr. Zandifar and he perfomed surgery December 2017. I had severe infections and lots of polyps. Four months down the road, polyps came back. Dr. Zandifar order special medication-liquid steroid/antifungal and nothing seemed to work. Finally Sinuva came to the market and Dr. Zandifar said I was a perfect candidare for Sinuva. I had the implants placed in November 2018. Today is April 12, 2019 and had an appointment with Dr. Zandifar for a check up. I am very satisfied with the results. No polyps! Dr. Zandifar is the best doctor ever!!!

The reason for my visit was because I was having trouble breathing through my nose. I could breathe fine out of my right nostril but my left side was always blocked. The main reason why I wanted to get the surgery was due to snoring. I would wake everyone up but now my mom has a hard time knowing if I am alive or just not snoring. My mom directed me to this office and I appreciate her for that. The scheduling process was very simple and easy to keep of. I would tell anyone if they have trouble breathing through their nose or snoring to stop by and get a diagnosis done. I definitely recommend OHNI because the surgery changed my life.

For many years, I have been self-conscious about my nose. Rhinoplasty was a procedure I always wanted but never thought I could afford. However, when I first met Dr. Zandifar, I learned that my medical procedures could be covered by insurance and was more affordable than I thought it would be. During my initial consultation, I became overwhelmed and anxious about the procedures he recommended. As we got to know each other, I felt thrilled and self assured that Dr. Zandifar would be the doctor that would transform my life medically and personally. Being sometimes a critical and particular person, I am glad that I found Dr. Zandifar. He gave me a new nose that I am fond of and now I am able to breathe, smell, and sleep throughout the night. Thank you OHNI and Dr. Zandifar.
My experience with Dr. Zandifar was simply great. The doctor and staff were extremely caring and helpful, they were on time and made me feel comfortable and valued as a patient.

Septoplasty and Turbinate Reduction
I first came to Dr. Zandifar in 2011 in hopes of being able to breathe better through my deviated septum and turbinate reduction surgery, Dr. Zandifar not only accomplished that but he exceeded my expectations so much so that I came back the following year for hump reduction surgery. What initially made me decide to have surgery with Dr. Zandifar at the Osborne Head and Neck Institute was the warmth, care and kindness that I felt from Dr. Zandifar. He made me feel comfortable and completely at ease. I felt like I could not only trust him with my nose but my life as well. I honestly adore Dr. Zandifar and I think he is one of the most outstanding, amazing, caring and warm doctors I have ever met (wish more doctors could be like him!)
He is the reason I decided to go with the OHNI, which had been my third consultation. Other than that the OHNI is a wonderful and modern doctors office that is easy to schedule with and understanding of their patients. I love that OHNI is always willing to work with the patient to make them more comfortable. I felt nurtured here and in great hands. I would more than recommend Dr. Zandifar and OHNI as one of the best ENT office and surgical center. Dr. Zandifar is one of the most amazing and gentle doctors, he is absolutely the best!!! I wish him all the best, and want everyone to know how awesome he is!
Deviated Septum / Turbinate Reduction / Rhinoplasty
I love OHNI all around. I was beyond skeptical about getting my tonsils and deviated septum fixed from hearing about botched procedures and screwy doctors but that was not my experience here! Everyone, from the front desk receptionist, to Chris the surgery scheduler to Dr. Zandifar and Dr. Williams were far beyond my expectations. I was so touched when Dr. Williams and Dr. Zandifar both wrote me cards saying get well soon in my recovery.
I have never trusted my health care providers as much as I trust this institute. I’m 19 and couldn’t breathe through my nose for almost 5 years and had tonsillitis on average 12 weeks a year. Now I can finally breathe through my nose with ease! And my tonsils will never give me grief again! Also, Dr. Gupta is such a great doctor, she was the first one I met with here and set up my meeting with Dr. Zandifar and Dr. Williams. I am always going to come back for anything ENT and skin related because these doctors are the real deal and so kind/ just plain awesome! Thank you so much OHNI!

Septoplasty / Turbinate Reduction
I came to Osborne Head and Neck to see Dr. Zandifar regarding my deviated septum. It turns out that I need to do the surgery. My experience was very powerful. From the day I scheduled the first visit to the days after the surgery. Dr. Zandifar was really helpful and advisable, he really knows what he is doing. He gave me the best solutions and used the best methods. The scheduling system was really flexible where you have almost open time to choose when you want your visit. Finally, I can say that the whole staff were helpful and always smiling.
I found Dr Zandifar on Google after I had suffered a broken nose; I came across and found good results. Dr Zandifar did an amazing job and I am very satisfied with my results. I recommend Dr Zandifar to anyone seeking a good and professional job to there nose. The staff was friendly and nice.

Closed Reduction Nasal Fracture
I had issues with sinus blockage related to seasonal allergies and snoring. Felt tired all the time since I was not getting good sleep and breathing was bothering at time due to the on-going stuffy-nose. I was referred by Dr. Eitches (my allergist) in the same building to come see the doctors at Osborne Head and Neck Institute. Upon consultation with Dr. Zandifar, I still tried other ways of addressing the issue including anti-snoring mouth piece. After a year of trying other means, I’ve decided to have the procedure on my nose and throat to alleviate the issue.
Dr. Zandifar and staff were all very accommodating with my schedule to travel abroad and to have the procedure done and areas of surgery healed. This was my first experience of major surgery and I would not recommend anyone else than OHNI for similar procedures. The follow up appointments to go through the healing or recovery process has been fantastic. Great example of healthcare and patient care! Worth every cent paid for the process with these wonderful folks!

Septo, Turbs, UPPP
The reason for my initial visit was to check out if I needed to have a surgery for a deviated septum and adenoids removal. I heard about the clinic from the internet, I found many comments talking about the clinic so, I decided to come over. However, when I first met Dr. Zandifar and the clinic’s staff, I felt very comfortable to do the procedure here.
I already told few friends who were searching for a very good clinic to check out their conditions and make procedures if necessary so they came over and were comfortable with the staff. Finally, I felt that the staff was really taking care of me from making appointments to doing the procedure and the stuff after the procedure. So, I thank all the staff and I hope God saves them.
Deviated Septum / Adenoids
I had stuffy nose for years. Since teenager age, I could not breathe with my nose fully open. When I was back in China, I saw many doctors and tried many kinds of medicine, then did a septoplasty. None of these worked. After I came to the U.S., the problem was still there. After a few months, I decided to see a doctor again. So I looked up ENT docs in my insurance network (Cigna) Head and Neck came in the first. I saw Dr. Zandifar about 4 months ago. He is very kind and patient doctor!
Dr. Zandifar gave me some medicine first, it still didn’t work. After discussing in detail with Chris the cost, I finally made up my mind to do a surgery. That might be the most right decision I’ve made for my nose! The process is smooth. The staff is very helpful. I feel very satisfied in every aspect of the surgery. For me, I am especially concerned in costs and surgery effect. They did a great job in explaining all the costs I need to pay, so I know exactly how much I would pay. The surgery went well, I can breathe much better than before, very thankful to this! I would definitely recommend someone else to come here to solve their problems! Everyone here is awesome!

Revision Septoplasty / Turbinate Reduction
I came in to see Dr. Z out of sheer desperation. Honestly, I just picked OHNI off the Cigna website. I read review on yelp and they were good so I went for it.
I’ve been seeing doctors for several years now; allergists, sleep specialists. I received a C-Pap machine and on and on. Since I couldn’t breathe through my nose I couldn’t use the C-Pap. Dr. Z was my last resort for a good night’s rest.
I had my surgery a week ago-septoplasty and turbinate reduction. Lisa- his scheduler is an awesome resource. Frankly, everyone I encountered were helpful, respectful and nice! Most staff in doctors’ offices are detached and mildly cranky-not the OHNI staff! Surgery went well. I had called several times for questions and always received a quick response. Dr. Z is very caring, gentle and just an all around good guy. I could go on and on….
Thanks Dr. Z!

Septoplasty / Turbinate Reduction
I came in with sinus issues, Dr. Z diagnosed the problem, corrected it and now I can breathe much more easily.
Dr. Zandifar is brillant! Kind, patient, and highly capable. He knows just which changes to my nose would most flatter my face while making sure. I still looked like “me in the end”. No one can tell I’ve had surgery but I find myself telling people about it, simply because I’m so proud of the result. (3 months after surgery). Even my own mother did not notice that I had a rhinoplasty! She just kept saying you look pretty…. Did you loose weight?
Anyway, the nurses and medical team were wonderful, making me feel cared for and safe both before surgery and during my recovery. Ultimately, I’m just so happy with my nose. I can take photos now without fear of looking bad and Dr. Zandifar’s work was so precise that the result seems natural, like I was simply born with a beautiful balanced face. I recommend Dr. Zandifar as highy as I can. I trusted him with my face and would trust him with my life.
Santa Monica, CA
I had a great experience at OHNI from the first visit I was treated nicely. The doctor and support staff were on top of everything and I had no issues with scheduling, surgery, financial arrangements or recovery. Dr. Zandifar took time to go over all the procedures with me and so far I have had a full recovery.
Ladera Ranch, CA
I initially came to Dr. Zandifar in March after an accident in which I fractured my nose and had stitches in my nose and forehead. I found him through my insurance after I was unhappy with the first ENT I saw. I immediately felt very comfortable at OHNI and with Dr. Zandifar. The whole process was easy and reassuring. Dr. Zandifar is great, and I would highly recommend him!
