An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means.

- Allergy and Immunology
An allergy & immunology specialist is a physician who is specially trained in matters pertaining to chronic and acute allergies, as well as deficiencies of the immune system. The doctor will determine whether an allergy, which attacks our immune system, is present. They'll also determine the cause, whether it be environmental triggers like trees and pollen, food-borne like peanuts and dairy, the venom of insects like bees, or a medication like penicillin.
In addition to determining the allergen causing an immunological response in a patient, the specialist will treat the symptoms caused by the reaction.
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.

we are extremely disappointed and upset of the bad work dr. saidi performed on my husband eyes for eye bug removal both upper and lower going on for 2 yrs. now this coming fall 2015. My husband have suffered from pain, insult , humiliation from friends , family and relatives. All he said to the patient is let us give it sometime til it heals and everytime he poke his eyes the bugs moved on the other side for both eyes like almond shape. My husband is really tired of this downtime waiting and he deserve to look good not to have a bad result, although they offer this service this doctor is not an expert on removal of eye bugs.
I am so thankful I found Dr. Iyad Saidi. I have had problems with sinus infections, post nasal drip and coughing which seemed never to go away. I went to Dr. Saidi and I found him to be very thorough, professional, and kind. His staff, too, is friendly and helpful.Dr. Saidi does not rush in and rush out. He spends the time you need. He listens carefully as I describe my symptoms and takes everything I say into account. He answers my many questions thoroughly explaining his diagnosis and procedures and anything else I have questions about. I have had excellent care and results from Dr. Saidi.His caring, gentle demeanor and his thorough explanations and answers to my questions confirm I am in good hands.
I have severe allergies and sinus issues and have been to many difference doctors and specialists. I heard about Dr. Saidi through a colleague and saw that he offered under-the-tongue allergy drops (SLIT). I was immediately impressed by his in-depth questions and patient interaction. His professionalism and care stand out among all my prior doctors and specialists. He is very thorough and I feel that I am in very good hands.
i went to fairfax hospital as an emergency patient sent from potomac hospital. i had a very serious problem with my ear dripping a lot of pus and a skull fracture. dr saidi did the operation the very next morning not even asking if i had insurance. he did an excellent job with the ear problem. i then saw a dr walker who operated on my brain to remove a pocket of pus. between these 2 wonderful men and doctors i believe 1000% that they saved my life. i will be forever grateful. ron p. dale city,va.
