I recently Had a nose surgery to fix a deviated Septum.
1 May 15, 2020
Dr. Undavia is the most compassionate, talented, and knowledgeable doctor I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing...and I’m a nurse! I was a difficult case. I had 2 rhinoplasties before meeting Dr. Undavia and the second procedure left me with a large perforated septum that caused constant crusting and dryness. Dr. Undavia was able to repair the perforation, correct my deviated septum, and fix my cosmetic concerns. Overall the surgery was a tremendous success. He was available by email throughout my entire recovery for any question that popped up. He is honest and realistic with what can be achieved. I made a huge mistake going to a general plastic surgeon for a revision rhinoplasty. Please take my advice and trust your nose and face to a surgeon who specializes in these areas. Dr. Undavia is not only a highly skilled nose and face plastic surgeon, he’s an ENT doctor, meaning he’s concerned about the functional results of your surgery as well as the cosmetic.

I highly recommend Dr Udavia to all my friends and family! He is patient, caring, understanding, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. From my consultation to my post surgery everything went great. I can honestly say he is one of a kind Doctor. He was always there for me from start to finish. I am 3 days post surgery and I can breathe so much better and love my results. Can’t wait until the swelling and bruising go away! He’s the best ??

I've been wanting a rhinoplasty for quite some time, but decided for the time being to go with a non-surgical rhinoplasty as I couldn't find a doctor I wanted to do my rhino. I went to Dr. Undavia for my non-surgical rhinoplasty and could not be more happy with my entire experience. He was extremely patient in listening to my concerns and made sure he understood what I wanted prior to recommending anything. He showed me what my nose would look like and walked through exactly what I wanted more patiently than any doctor I've ever met. I ended up getting the non-surgical rhino the day of my consultation and am SO happy with the results! He's the only surgeon I trust with my face. His entire staff was also very helpful and welcoming, the entire experience was great.

Dr. Undavia is an amazing doctor. I have a host of complicated medical conditions and see many doctors. Dr. Undavia is one of the few physicians I have encountered who takes the time to really listen to the patient's story and take what the patient has to say into account before rushing to treatment. He is kind, warm, and trustworthy and makes you feel comfortable. He is also an excellent doctor. He navigated my difficult case with ease and made me feel confident every step of the way. He was easy to get in touch with, answered all my questions, and has just generally been an exceptional physician all around. I highly recommend Dr. Undavia!

Currently 2-weeks Post-Op for Septoplasy, Septal Perforation Repair, Nasal Polyps Removal, Turbinectomy, and whatever else I'm forgetting. What an amazing doctor. I went to multiple ENTs and he is the only one I felt was confident in his skills as well as patient and understanding with my questions and concerns. Dr.Undavia is a one in a million kind of doctor. Before surgery I came to the appointment with a page of typed out questions which he was happy to answer each one until I was able to und

I found Dr Undavia to be gentle and caring, with great patient skills. I had continuous post nasal drip from environmental allergies, and drugs and sprays weren’t working. He decided to try the Clarifix procedure. He did it in the office with a very local anesthetic, sort of like novocain. The procedure took less than five minutes per nostril, and I was on my way home. It worked, eliminating about 70% of the drip. So I highly recommend both Dr Undavia and Clarifix.

Dr Undavia recommended surgery for my sinus and I was reluctant but put my trust in him. I am so happy I did, he answered all my questions took his time to explain and had a great bedside manner. I had seen numerous doctors at that practice and although they were all good he was the only one that discussed surgery as an option. It was one week ago I had my surgery and so far I am thrilled.
LAWRENCEVILLE – Oct 26, 2018
Him and the staff at the Lawrence office are super nice! I had my sinuses scrapped and my septum straightened and no problems. Everything went as smooth as can be! I'm breathing better than before I realized I had sinus problems, if that makes sense! So glad I listened to a great friend came to Dr. Undavia! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
Sue in Princeton, NJ – Sep 26, 2018
I saw Dr. Undavia for a partial thyroidectomy. He is very knowledgable, explains everything in detail and listens to all your concerns. My procedure went very well and I was good to go in no time. I had full confidence in him and would recommend him.
Lynda in Freehold , NJ – Sep 18, 2018
Dr.Undavia is a remarkable person,very easy going and of course he is very professional with his work. My experience at Princeton eye and ear in freehold was smooth in and out quick the staff are very friendly. I would strongly recommend Dr. Undavia to friends and family to anyone he’s the one to go with I assure you that you will be in good hands. My experience was a A+ :)
1 Shawn Layton in Princeton, NJ – Sep 02, 2018
Dr. Undavia recently performed a parotidectomy on me and it was a super easy recovery. No pain, at all. He's a great doctor and I feel lucky I was directed to him. I can't praise him enough. He even pushed my surgery up to work with my schedule and he's gentle and kind. He also has a great staff working with him.
Mary Lou Wessels in Belford – Jun 25, 2018
Outstanding! If I had to use one word to refer to Dr Samir Undavia, that would be it. Sadly, my 90 year old mother was diagnosed with cancer in her neck. Under great duress due to my mothers age and her cardiac problems, Dr Undavia successfully removed all the cancer. We highly recommend this physician who is practicing at the highest level of professional and surgical excellence!
srujal parikh in Edison , NJ – Jun 14, 2018
After few year bad experience and going through sleep less night finally meet Great Doctor Dr.Undevia did best treatment and best surgery feels so better his staff is really nice and cooperative. I would highly recommend him as E&T
1 Carissa – Apr 29, 2018
Dr. Undavia did my lip fillers and i couldn’t be happier with my results. I’m always getting compliments i highly recommend him
1 Andria Bailey in Ewing, NJ – Apr 24, 2018
Dr. Undavia is God-sent! I’ve suffered from a deviated septum and sinus issues for over 5 yrs. As soon as I met him, I trusted him with whatever procedure(s) I needed to undergo. Truthfully, I didn’t understand the severity of my issues beyond not being able to breathe, properly. His bedside manner, outstanding personality and steady hand gave me confidence again. With instructions, all was well with me in less than 2 weeks. I enjoy good reports during my visits. Most knowledgeable is his field.
1 Apr 09, 2018
I highly recommend Dr. Undavia for any ear, nose and throat surgery and/or care. I had a septoplasty, rhinoplasty, and septal perforation closure, a complex surgery that he handled perfectly. Having a septal perforation is a unique and sometimes serious issue, but Dr. Undavia is uniquely skilled in this field. He, as well as his office staff, spend a lot of time with patients explaining issues and making them feel comfortable.
1 Feb 22, 2018
I had a small plastic surgery procedure on my face and he was recommended. He has a very nice disposition, very open to discussions and concerns. I would recommend his practice.
Jan 24, 2018
He’s Amazing ! I recently had sinus surgery and although I was very nervous about having the surgery, I am so glad that I did. Dr Undavia listens to everything you have to say, explains things thoroughly, and is very knowledgeable, patient and personable. I definitely recommend him. From the first time I went to his office, his staff is very courteous and friendly. It’s always easy to make an appointment and they are always very accommodating.
Natalie – Jan 17, 2018
My experience with Dr. Undavia and his staff has been extremely positive. I needed my sinuses overhauled as well as my septum fixed. Dr. Undavia clearly and honestly explained what my surgery and recovery would entail, I was able to ask as many questions as I needed and never felt rushed. It has been about a month since the surgery and I am feeling wonderful. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends. He has been absolutely wonderful and I truly feel like I got the best.
1 Jen in Neptune, NJ – Nov 25, 2017
Dr. Undavia was recommended to me through a friend and I couldn’t be happier. I had rhinoplasty and septoplasty two weeks ago and the entire experience was worth it. As my results continue to improve I am more and more pleased. He is always available to answer questions and the staff have been very helpful. I recommend Dr. Undavia highly!
1 Princeton, Nj – Nov 17, 2017
The staff are always very friendly. Doctor is also very friendly and very good at his job. Always answers my questions and never hesitates. Did a great job and was very helpful when I was having trouble after surgery
2 6 Hightstown – Aug 31, 2017
This office has no idea what they're doing when it comes to benefits. Told me I owed a copay then told the surgical center where we were having surgery that I owed nothing. Confirmed with the center that I was to pay nothing several days prior to surgery then was hit with a several thousand dollar bill 7 months later. Totally miscommunicated my benefits which is a terrible reflection on how this office treats its patients and professional responsibilities. Leaving practice immediately
2 Cranbury, NJ – May 05, 2017
I had been having sinus/tonsil problems since childhood, he really took care of me! Amazing bedside manners, really cares for his patients well being. My nose and throat is SO much better now. I finally feel like I can breathe normally. Highly recommend him!!
2 Mina – May 04, 2017
He answered all my questions and not in a hurry when he sees his patients. He did septoplasty on my nose and came out successful with no complications.
1 Magdalena B. in Easton, PA – Mar 31, 2017
As a middle aged couple, my husband and I, never met a doctor with a better bed side manner. From the moment we met Dr. Undavia, we knew we were in good hands based on his fantastic personality and professionalism. Following every recommendation that he made, gave us the confidence that we were making the right decision. Ultimately, the outcome exceeded any expectations we had. We would highly recommend Dr. Undavia to family, friends and anyone that needs his medical expertise. Thank you Dr. :)
1 Cassandra in NJ – Mar 28, 2017
Dr. Undavia is very professional and understood my needs as a patient. I had surgery on my nose and Dr. Undavia preformed the Septoplasty. The surgery was successful and the procedure went smoothly. Not to mention, Dr. Undavia comforted me every step of the way being that this was my first surgery. Overall, I can breathe better through my nose and I am completely satisfied with his work.
Vicky in Freehold, NJ – Mar 28, 2017
I was suffering severely from sinus infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, and ear infections. In 2016 I had 13 sinus infections, bronchitis 3 times and pneumonia twice. Until I came under Dr. Undavia's care, I felt like giving up hope of ever feeling healthy again. I was feeling horrible, constantly coughing, and lost many days of work because of my health. He recommended that I have sinus surgery, which I did Jan. 2017 and I have never felt so good. He is smart, amazing and very nice.
Gloria White in Monmouth Junction, NJ – Dec 14, 2016
Dr Undavia's compassion and relaxed manner put me at ease. Having never had facial surgery before I didn't know what to expect. After consulting with Dr. Undavia he told me what to expect, explained what the procedure would be like and answered all my questions He reassured me that my procedure would be a success. In the days following my procedure I was happy with the result. I would recommend Dr. Undavia, I felt he cared about me and my well being.
1 Penny in Princeton, NJ – Nov 23, 2016
Dr.Undavia did Septoplasty and Turbinate reduction for me last November. Everything went smoothly without any problem. He is an excellent surgeon. I recovered quickly by following his instructions and I didn't have a sinus infection after the surgery. I can breath normal. I am very glad that my migraines stopped as well. After seeing my results, my husband is also going to do the same surgery, hope it will help him too.
1 Heather in Hopewell, NJ – Nov 22, 2016
I've had major issues with my ears and nose for many years (30+). I have seen just about every ENT in the area. Finally I was referred to Dr. Undavia and I couldn't be happier. I had the septoplasty, tubinate reduction and a t tube in my left ear. I already feel so much better and it is only my second week. I can't wait to see how I feel after I am completely healed! He is an amazing doctor and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
1 Sara M in Pennington, NJ – Nov 08, 2016
Our family was referred to Dr. Undavia for our daughter with a hole in her nasal septum that had to be surgically repaired. His knowledge about this procedure was evident with his thorough and detailed explanations on what and how he was going to approach our daughter's surgery. We learned that this particular surgery is very rare and not many dr.'s are trained in it's specialty. Dr. Undavia always took the time to answer all our questions. We highly recommend him as he is an amazing surgeon.
1 3 Suma T in Princeton, NJ – Sep 29, 2016
Dr. Undavia is a very caring, patient and skill full surgeon. He removed tumor on my shoulder in June 2016. He very meticulous and explained the pros and cons of my surgery. Very thankful to him for removing lipoma on my supra clavicular region with great ease, leaving a very minute scar.
8 Marta G in Hamilton, NJ – Jul 22, 2016
Dr. Undavia is one of the best health care providers I have ever, ever encountered. From my first visit with Dr. Undavia, I knew I could trust him with my nose...I knew that I would be able to breath again, and I can! He is a HIGHLY skilled surgeon who I have recommended to family and friends, and will continue to do so. You are my Super Star (and so are all the team members at Princeton Eye and Ear). I will miss all of you when the time comes for my last appoint...get the tissues ready!
1 1 Jeni S. in Princeton, NJ – Jul 18, 2016
Dr. Undavia is probably the most thorough doctor I've ever seen. He performed a lymph node removal on the right side of my neck after it had been swollen for nearly a year. I was concerned that it could be something awful, but he continuously reassured me that it would be fine- and it was!! His bedside manor is impeccable- he is kind, attentive, understanding. And his surgery skills are equally as impressive- I barely have a scar from the procedure. BEST ENT in Central Jersey for sure.
1 Larry Larstanna in East Brunswic, NJ – Jul 08, 2016
I used Dr. Undavia to close for my mohs surgery on my face near my eye. He was very nice, caring and informative during the consult. On the day of the procedure he was very accommodating and his friendly, knowledgable and caring way put me at ease. His staff was friendly and nice also.
1 1 Dana Swan – May 23, 2016
I had a huge cyst on my forehead for years. no doctor wanted to touch it. I was referred to Doctor Undavia who immediately put me at ease. He explained what he would do to remove the cyst and how he would put my incision. Happy to say it has been two weeks and no one can see the incision Dr Undavia took his time to stich me up properly. I can honestly say I feel pretty. Thank u so much for your care.
1 Mr. A R in Hamilton,NJ – May 19, 2016
I saw Dr. Undavia for my deviated septum, turbinate reduction. I am now almost a month out of surgery, and what an excellent job ! I am now able to breath normal , I had Zero pain with a very small amount of soreness post surgery. I can now breath normal during Jiu Jitsu , he got me back on the mats fast . I highly recommend him to anyone !

Went to Dr. Undavia for a mole removal excision. I was very anxious and he made me feel so much better- he put on music to calm me down, made conversation, and was so comforting. When I went back today to get my stitches out, I got very faint. He took care of me right away; he had me lay down and got me a lollypop for sugar. Aside from that, he is great at what he does. There is barely any mark and I JUST got the stitches out! I would recommend him to anyone and will go back if I ever need to.
Ray D. in Kendall Park, NJ – Apr 07, 2016
I would HIGHLY recommend everyone to see Dr. Undavia. He and his staff are extremely friendly, caring, knowledgable, and professional. I am now 3 weeks post-op from surgery for my deviated septum, turbinate reduction, and sinuses and am feeling so much better. After having a deviated septum all of my life I can now finally breathe and it feels AMAZING and will only get better. A HUGE THANKS to Dr. Undavia and staff for everything you have done for me!
1 Adam in Princeton, NJ – Mar 24, 2016
I saw Dr. Undavia for treatment of my persistent sinus infections as well as difficulty breathing at night during sleep. He advised that my septum was slightly deviated and on one side touching the turbinate, thus effectively closing one nostril. He explained that I could continue to treat my allergies / sinus infections and then explained the pros and cons of surgery, without pushing me either way. I went with the surgery and couldn't be happier; recovery wasn't nearly as bad as I had read.
1 Somerset, NJ – Mar 18, 2016
I was having a problem with hearing in my left ear. Dr. Undavia did a full review of my symptoms as well as a hearing test. Based on this, he prescribed a medication that cleared up the problem in a bit more than a week! When I returned for a follow up hearing test, my hearing was where it was prior to my problem. Dr. Undavia was considerate, professional and very thorough in his diagnosis and follow up treatment. I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend him.
Feb 05, 2016
Excellent and friendly doctor. Very good bedside manners. Focused, attentive and caring. Highly recommend.

Dr. Undavia performed an adenoidectomy on my 20 month old son. Extremely reassuring, amazing bedside manner!
3 AC in Princeton, NJ – Jan 08, 2016
After having sinus/allergy problems for many years - I went to Dr Undavia for a second opinion. I found him to be very proactive and that we were working together to resolve my issue. We worked through all treatment options before resorting to surgery. He explained everything clearly and was very responsive and understanding. Highly recommend
2 Mark Harris in Princeton, NJ – Dec 19, 2015
My sinuses were severely blocked They showed almost completely black in the scan), and my septum deviated. Dr. Undavia's assertion that my breathing would improve has come true. Not only that, my sense of smell is so much more acute that it's occasionally overwhelming. In short, the quality of my life has tangibly improved.
