– Dr. Christopher Lykins
Over the last 20 years, Dr. Lykins has been repeatedly recognized for his personal approach and commitment to providing the best ENT services in Phoenix by both his fellow colleagues and – most importantly – his patients.
Dr. Lykins was my final hope after suffering several years from previous misdiagnoses. This wonderful, patient, man gave me a life that is now livable, but most importantly proved that “the cream always rises to the top” the best is to be tasted and God gave me the chance to taste the best. So my friends, seek comfort and see this great doctor.
I really like Dr. Lykins!
I have visited Dr. Lykins 2 or 3 times, and he is really kind and friendly. I will have him as my primary doctor for nose / allergy issues. No doubt.
Fine Hands and Good Accuracy
I had septoplasty to rebuilt another septum that I had 18+ years ago. Turn out much less painful than what I recalled originally. I can breathe and my eyesight is improved upon.
Overall, the doctor has fine hands and good accuracy with a couple of stories to make you feel fine. Good luck and enjoy, you will be fine.Our ENT Patients
No Scars and Both Function and Aesthetics are Better Than I Ever Thought Possible
Dr. Chris Lykins did both a septoplasty and rhinoplasty for a congenital malformation. The surgery went extremely well and I experienced very little pain or discomfort. There are no scars and both function and aesthetics of my nose are better than I ever thought possible.
I highly recommend Dr Lykins!!
Making an appointment with Dr Lykins was easy. He is always on time, so you’re never waiting.
Dr Lykins did my tonsillectomy and I was eating regular food by day 3! I have two friends that had it done by another doctor and they were both down for 3 weeks!
