"I arrived at Dr Jaggi's office and was greeted with a friendly face and a smile from his office staff. I only waited about 10 minutes to see him. He was friendly, knowledgeable and didn't rush my appointment. I will be happy to visit Dr Jaggi and his office again in the future."

I am so impressed with this guy. I'm really awful for leaving my brain at home whenever an appointment comes up; I can never think of the questions I need to ask, getting my thoughts together is like herding cats. Dr. Jaggi took the time to really ascertain what I needed, and worked with me to come up with a plan that made sense to both of us. He took obvious time and care with my surgery, not leaving until he was assured that everything was perfect and the results speak for themselves. Phenomenal doctor, very down to earth and easy going. Would recommend to anyone considering rhino/septoplasty. So lucky to have been referred to him!!!
