Outstanding Physician. He listened to my concerns, medical history and came up with a plan to diagnose and treat my current issue and plan for a more long term resolution for my sinus problems. He explained and ordered medication and encouraged me to call or message him with any concerns. I had some concerns regarding a side effect of the infection and he spoke to me several times to insure that I had secured an appointment with an Opthamologist due it the infection moving to my eyes. Always calm, reassuring and resolved the issue.

Dr. Kamat changed my life. I have had sinus issues for 20 years and he is the 1st ENT in whom I was confident enough for surgery. Dr Kamat did my sinus surgery in February of 2023. The procedure was flawless, healing was without incident, and my recovery is exactly what he said it would be. Dr. Kamat is an expert surgeon/physician who demonstrates kindness, compassion, and empathy in every interaction. He is really special.
