My ears have received a lot of attention from various doctors over the course of my life because I have chronic earwax buildup (and A LOT of it). I went into Dr. Casper's office thinking that he was either going toperform a water irrigation or use only tweezers to remove the matter inside my ears, as other doctors previously did. Both of those methods have caused me different forms of discomfort and side effects, but the tweezers were especially painful so I was a little anxious. Instead of using either of those methods, Dr. Casper literally vacuumed out EVERYTHING that was stuck inside my tiny ear canals. He used the tweezers in between vacuuming, but it was significantly less painful due the the amount that was removed with the vacuum alone. Although it was very noisy, it was one of the most satisfying feelings I've ever experienced. I left his office in an entirely better mood because my head literally felt lighter and less foggy. I will definitely go back to Dr. Casper for my future earwax extractions!

Was hardly a wait in the waiting room, even though I was 15 minutes early---one minute after my arrival, I was in the exam room. A few minutes later, Dr. Casper came into the room and patiently listened to me. Aftermy hearing test, he explained everything in a clear and articulate manner. He is a friendly and knowledgeable physician who I would highly recommend.

I'm slightly upset because he said I need to cut back on caffeine, but that's a personal issue because I can't live without coffee. I'm going to be a good patient though and do what he advised because Dr. Casper always has my best health in focus

I think Dr Casper is a fine ENT and have seen him at Glenbrook in the past. I was very disappointed in the audiologist's unprofessional behavior. She left my mom in the testing room 3 separate times to go talk tothe guys installing the new big screen tv in the waiting room. Being in the waiting room I could hear her talking to these men and at one point said, "please let me check that everything is working before you leave" But then she came back out twice to tell them "one more thing". When my 87 yr old mom finally came out she was quite annoyed too.

I went to this practice a month ago and saw a different doctor for what I thought was a sinus infection, he did a quick one over and told me there was no infection. I made another appointment with Dr Casper.He took the time to listen and took the extra steps to find I did in fact have a sinus infection. Very thorough.

Dr, Casper appeared preoccupied, as though he was between patients. I felt my concerns/symptoms were not listened to carefully. I am a nurse and was very concise in my symptoms and concerns as this was a return visit for worsening ofsame problem. This was my first visit with Dr. Casper, I was seen at prior visit by another physician in the group. I left very irritated and if I return it will be not with Dr. Casper but the original physician I saw. Very disappointed, as my pcp specifically recommended Dr. Casper and I waited over 2wks to be seen.

Dr. Casper is one of the most knowledgeable and professional ENT's I've ever had the pleasure to know. I couldn't ask for a better expert to guide me through my vocal health issues.
