Everyone in the office was amazing. I would recommend to anyone needing and ENT.
great clear explanations just seemed very rushed.
Dr. Dohar is a God send!
Dr. Dohar is really a blessing to our Son and Family. we could not ask for a better Dr. for our son. thank you Dr. Dohar.
extreme wait time. appointment was at 10:45, doctor came into the room at 11:55, and spent less than 10 minutes with us. I felt very rushed.
I wait for an hour and 15 minutes before being seen by the doctor. i am expected toarrive early for my appointment to fill out paperwork and then expected to wait. It's very frustrating.
Dr. Dohar continues to have extremely long wait times. I have seen him multiple times over the past nine years with many of my children. I always ask for the first appointment on his schedule and I still wait more than hour from my appointment time to see Dr. Dohar. I prefer to no longer see Dr. Dohar for this reason as I feel it is unprofessional and disrespectful to my time to run so far behind schedule, especially when my child is the first appointment of the day. Additionally, I spend more time talking with his nurse practitioner and than I even spend talking with Dr. Dohar himself. After waiting so much time, I'd at least expect to have a thorough exam done.
Best doctors appointment I've ever had. Listened, acknowledged, and respected what I had to say while giving many different treatment options. He was not pushy at all whatsoever and made it clear that the decisions were all mine, while still stating his thoughts on the matter. I would recommend him to anyone.
This was our first time in this office and meeting the staff. Every provider was extremely welcoming and helpful to us while trying to navigate the best course of treatment for our son. Dr. Dohar was knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming of questions, and communicated the course of treatment to me in an easy to understand matter. My son especially loved how Dr. Dohar spoke directly to him as well, and not just the adults. Thank you for a great appointment.
Dr. Dohar is an excellent healthcare provider. He is friendly and easy to talk to. He performed surgery on my daughter as an infant, completely correcting her issues with no further need for intervention.
Dr. Dohar is amazing!
excellent doctor and staff. so patient with my daughter and made her feel very comfortable. it was a great experience.
Dr. Dohar was wonderful. No complaints.
The staff provided detailed information and took time to listen to my daughter's problem.
Dr Dohar was awesome. Very thorough.
Dr. Dohar has been excellent through this whole experience with our oldest son who had to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. He seems so much better and doesn't seem to have any of the issues he did prior to the surgery. We're thankful that our son was treated with such care and treated so well Children's Hospital after the surgery.
very kind with children.
I have no complain about Care Provider.
dr Doha was amazing as was his team. they put me at ease and my daughter loved all of them!
Dr. Dohar is excellent. he came nightly recommended.
Everything went well
First of all, we are not questioning Dr. Dohar's qualifications or professionalism. What we are very dissatisfied with is the lack of preparation he seemed to exhibit during our daughter's exam. It was very inconvenient for us to attend this visit and took approximately 5 weeks to schedule. During the exam, the doctor was only present for less than 5 minutes and had nothing meaningful to offer and no plan to move forward. He suggested we see a certain rhuematologist that could prescribe additional tests. Upon call their office, they were perplexed as to why we were contacting them, even after explaining that it was at the suggestion of Dr. Dohar. This seemed like a dead end and we abandoned this path. In summary, we felt strongly that the doctor did not come prepared to offer any direction or plan moving forward -- it felt like a meet & greet session! For the time and effort required to attend this exam, we fely like it was all a waste of time. As a result, we plan to move forward with another speciallists that we will determinine on our own.
There are not enough kind words for the way we feel about Dr. Dohar!! He is the absolute best!!!
I love Dr Dohar. He is the best.
Dr Dohar is fantastic he did our child's tonsils and adenoids surgery and this was our follow up appointment after surgery
Dr. Dohar and his staff were amazing! Dr. Dohar took excellent care of my son. He was patient and kind and very understanding. We will continue to see him as long as he is in practice!

Dr.Dohar and his staff were amazing!
the nurse practitioner and dr dohar were extremely helpful. they went above and beyond to give my daughter the best care possible
Dr. Dohar knew what he was doing and was able to fix mistakes from a provider at a different hospital group. He was kind, wonderful with my son, and explained everything clearly.
Dr. Dohar made me feel very comfortable with our decision for my daughter's care and reapwcred
Very knowledgeable doctor
We had a very pleasant experience and appreciated the courtesy of the entire staff, especially Dr. Dohar.
Dr. Dohar and his staff were excellent!
Couldn't be happier with provider and service.
The staff was amazing! I needed to nurse my daughter and that put us behind and they were totally fine with that and also provided a room to nurse in. The doctor and his staff were very kind and knowledgeable.
Dr dohar prescribed medication without telling me what they were or addressing risks of the medication. he was only in the room for about 10 minutes and did not adequately discuss the issue or my questions.
Dr. Dohar greeted my daughter like she was the only patient he had that day, and like it made his day to see her in his office. He was so kind and caring. He answered all of our questions thoroughly and anticipated concerns that we had. He was very knowledgeable and made my daughter feel cared for and special.
Dr. Dohar is wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very kind.
Excellent provider. Friendly and professional staff. Everyone tried to help our little-one feel comfortable.
We love Dr. Dohar. Has such wonderful spirit and concern for our child. Cured her of her fear of the dr. office.
they are friendly
Dr. Dohar is phenomenal! He is wonderful with my daughter. He treats my husband and I with respect and speaks to us at our level. I will recommend him to anyone who needs an ENT for their child.
My children have severe anxiety about going to the doctor. Dr. Dohar was so kind, friendly, and sensitive that he put them right at ease. He treated me with respect, did not patronize or condescend to me when discussing the medical issues at hand, and made me feel very confident that my children were in the right hands.
I want to thank Dr. dohar personal for helping my child!! Since we was 3 weeks old she has had problems. thank you for getting to the roat of the problem! My child is the healthiest she has ever been. This staff was very kind!!!!
I thought that the Nurse, NP and the Dr.were all very pleasant and very kind.
Dr. Dohar is wonderful to work with. He explains things in simple terms and pointed us onto the next steps we should take. Even though he is handing us off to a different specialist he ensured me that he will still be in contact with our situation, that he in no way was dropping us. Wonderful experience!
We are very happy with Dr. Dohar!
Although we have been happy with Dr. Dohar's care, the wait time to see him whether we schedule in the morning or afternoon is always incredibly long. We always wait at least an hour to see him.
very busy day, long wait time. 30 minutes in waiting room and another 30 minutes in room before DR came in
the doctor was wonderful! I recommend him to all my friends with children
Dr. Dohar is great. He is very thorough and explains issues in a very easy-to-understand manner.
we loved all of the staff! with a newborn, discussing surgery was very difficult, but the doctor and staff made us so comfortable and showed so much care and concern to our questions
love dr dohar!
best doctor and office in pa
Dr. Dohar and the staff we met with were incredible. They had my dr fearing child laughing and excited for her next visit by the time we left.
This provider is wonderful with children and has a great personality. Even though he was running a little behind on appointment time (which almost never happens here), he was so apologetic and explained why there was a delay. We completley understood.
dr Dohar is the absolute top notch best at what he does and his personality with my children is absolutely awesome. He's so respectful and truly concerned for the families and children he treats.
he was very nice and nurse
Dr. Dohar is such a wonderful doctor! He is honestly the best and we will forever be grateful for him saving our sons life! No matter how many times I may repeat a question he always answers and never gets frustrated with us! He explains everything to us so we fully understand and that mean he has had to repeat himself and never got upset with having to do so. He is highly professional and great! love how personable he can be! Makes us feel like he truly cares!!!
dr Dohar is an amazing person in addition to being an amazing doctor! he is so wonderful to my children and always sweet and chipper whenever we see him.
Dr. Dohar has been so professional and caring every time we have seen him. He has taken the time to listen to the problems and discuss treatment and his level of care has been extraordinary.
always a great experience with Dr Dohar, he is knowledgeable, friendly, and outgoing.
aDr Dohar and his staff were wonderful and easy to work with to understand the issues with my child
I have been to many facilities (Youngstown, Cleveland Clinic) to address my daughters needs, Dr. Dohar is by far the most knowledgable person in the area on this subject. I would highly recommend him to all of my friends/ family.
My only complaint is the wait time. Every time we have come for a check up we wait over an hour before the doctor comes in. It's extremely hard to keep a small child busy for that long.
We were told to arrive at least 30 minutes before our appointment which we did but I felt that it was unnecessary. especially because they were so behind and we didn't get to see the dr. until an hour after our scheduled appointment. the packet of information I had to full out while waiting, I wish had been sent to me prior to our appointment because it was alot of information and hard to full out while trying to keep my 1 year old entertained. Also I was extremely disappointed that after waiting an hour to see the Dr. he had very little time to spend with us and felt like it was rushed. everyone was extremely friendly and courteous to my son and I but I can tell this office wasn't organized because after we had scheduled surgery for my son during that appointment I just received a call that they were wrong on the date and hospital where he was supposed to be scheduled. So now I have to reschedule everything.
this was a post op appointment and Dr Dohar was friendly and courteous as usual
I really thought that my son and I had a terrific experience with this office. My son is 3 and experienced a lot of anxiety and the staff was wonderful in helping to alleviate his fears. Dr. Dohar was absolutely wonderful in dealing with him. I felt that Dr. Dohar and the NP, Bev, listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions. The waiting room and office were clean, bright, and colorful. The receptionist checked me in right away and we were seen not long after that. I work as a nurse for UPMC and I thought this office was very prompt, helpful, and friendly. Great experience!
waited over an hour past appt. time to see doctor
dr. Dohar is an amazing Dr. he is kind, caring, compassionate, thorough and extremely knowledgeable he took into consideration my child's feelings and how he understood the medical condition of which we are dealing with. we do and will continue to highly recommend dr. dohar to anyone in need of ENT Services.
my only complaint would be not being seen until an hour after my appointment time. I understand being busy but don't out people in a room until the dr is ready. much better to wait in waiting area where there is some form of entertainment for kids
The visit involved too much waiting in the exam room. Very hard to keep a 3-1/2 year old contained with that much sitting around.
I love Dr. Dohar. He always makes my child feel comfortable and heard. I would highly recommend him to any parent.
exceptional visit - great bedside manner
He was amazing! First rate!
Aleaysbreceive great care from Dr Dohar and his team!
dr Dohar is wonderful with children!
everyone is very attentive to my daughter and took the time to talk w me. I never once felt rushed . dr Dohar is one of the nicest people and really takes his time
Dr Dohar and his PA are the best. They are both caring and listen to your needs. They make a wonderful team:)
Beverly, the Nurse Practicianer was wonderful to work with. She was pleasant, positive and listened at all my son's health history since this was our first visit to an ENT. Dr. Dohar and her worked together very well. the conversation and diagnosis for surgery between the both of them was friendly, yet still very professional. they explained everything to us so we understood what they saw and what is happening.
we waited for a very very long time. aside from that the visit was excellent.
I can not express how truly wonderful Dr. Dohar and his staff are! The absolute best!
Dr Dohar is always very pleasant and professional. He explains things thoroughly and always takes care to answer our questions thoughfully. He is knowledgeable and will search out answers to questions he does not know.
I was very impressed with how well Dr Duhar worked with my son. he made a very scary situation very comfortable for my son. I would definitely return and recommend.
