I was extremely pleased with my visit to Dr. Payman. My sinus problems (that I've experienced since childhood) have significantly depleted. The office staff in Poughkeepsie was a bit rude but the doctor's professionalism definitely made up for that

I went to Dr. Payman for hearing loss. He was warm & funny. I was scheduled for a hearing test with an audiologist. At the follow-up Dr. Payman explained my condition to me and gave me plenty of time to ask questions. I was less than impressed with the people working the front desk but the people in back (doctor nurse & audiologist) were great.
