He will always be my favorite doctor. I have sensitive ears and he treats me like a person whenever I’m in pain. No condescending attitude, just quiet and calm.

A bit reserved but mannerly and gentle in his procedural applications and very knowledgeable. Didn’t mind answering queries and even offered recommendations to combat potential ear wax build up. My nine year old is a happier little girl asam the little girl’s mother! The front office staff were attentive and very pleasant. Yes, we are going back for a scheduled hearing test.

Doctor Wallace, Was very kind. He asked questioned and listened to my explanations. As well he gave me suggestions on future care. He was right with his diagnoses, and I am feeling much better now. I'm glad I did not require additional surgery. Great first experience.

He was nice, and put me at ease. While not gruff or rude, it did take a bit for him to become friendly - I had to crack a fair amount of jokes to get him to smile. But overall, I'm happy with the appointment and his treatment.

From the moment I walked into the office, I knew things were going to go well. The office itself is warm and welcoming with staff that are friendly and helpful. Dr. Wallace himself is very kind, professional, and attentive. I wentin for a consult on a node in my neck. He was very clear and patient in answering all my questions. I left knowing I had all the answers I needed and thanks to his ability, a doctor I would return to immediately if needed.

I went to see DrWallace for a sudden loss of hearing, quite scare. He did not even attempt to raise his voice , even when I told him I couldn't hear him. Proceeds to examine me and again "I can't hearyou" . Tells me that I need a hearing test. He is ready to leave the room but hey can you explained a bit more why, if it could be temporary or if is permanent ? He , totally non reassuring, detached tell me you need to have the hearing test, I can't tell you anything right now! Takes me to the front desk where he is talking with his assistant and then sh looks at me and says something. Excuse me , I can't hear either one of you??????. She looks at DrWallace who tells her something. Then she visibly annoyed raises her voice to tell me Come Thursday at 5:00 p for the ear exam and turns around and that's that I guess. I left in tears without one note of concern , human touch from this Dr and this assistant .

After waiting 45 minutes to see the doctor, he came in , asked about 3 minutes worth of questions, examined my daughter for another 3 minutes and ordered a perception for us to try. Not sure how I feel about that,but if it works, and she doesn't need further treatment , I'll be grateful.

Wait time was annoyingly long. Doc didn't look up/ make eye contact the entire time I was there, and barely pretended to acknowledge my presence. His diagnosis and recommended treatment was subpar, as my symptoms failed to improve.
