I found San Diego ENT Specialists when I was desperate for answers as to why I was getting chronic sinus infections and suffering from the inability to breathe properly. I saw Dr. Daté and immediately felt comfortable and taken care of. Long story short, I ended up needing surgery to take care of my problems. I was able to schedule everything smoothly and all of the submitting to insurance was handled on their end, which was nice. I would recommend this office to anyone looking to solve their ear, nose, and throat issues!

We bring my 102 year old mother-in-law here to get her ears cleaned. They are very kind to her and very gentle. She has had bad experiences in the past with this procedure by other specialist. But since the first time we brought her here, she has enjoyed her visit. We will never take her to any other place. We highly recommend that if you need your ears cleaned that you come to this place!!

The front office staff was friendly, the office was very well maintained and the follow-up information sent via email regarding my visit was extremely helpful.

Kristen was absolutely amazing. Her bedside manner is very welcoming, her explanations were very thorough and in a way you can easily understand. She spent a fair amount of time going through all the results from my tests.

I would absolutely recommend this facility to people in need of ENT services.

I was referred to Dr. Dent by a rheumatologist who spotted a lesion on my thyroid during a routine scan. The front desk was warm and I was seen almost immediately, both being taken to the back room and then being seen by the doctor. Sometimes they'll take you to the back room and then you have to wait there for 45 minutes, but this was not the case at all. I was attended to right away. Dr. Dent took his time, has warm bedside manner, and was very factual and answered all my questions with patience and kindness. I wasn't expecting a biopsy during our first consultation, but that is what happened and he was very thorough and took his time. He laid out all the possibilities and what to expect. 6 days later the front office called me with the results and told me that I had to come in to receive them, so I knew it was bad news. Dr. Dent again spoke to me kindly, informed me about everything to expect, explained what the next steps are and what to expect going forward. Brittany, the surgery coordinator was also patient and kind with the scheduling side. So far, my experience with their care has been excellent.

I'm so happy I found this office. I've had about 5 visits now and each time the service is pleasant and the providers are helpful. I no longer have insurance and still choose to come here because of their quality of care. A big thank you to Kristen for getting my ears right before my upcoming move abroad! Highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a exceptional ENT.
