This doctor did absolutely nothing for me. I came in with an ear issue, and he referred me to a ear specialist without even looking to the issue I was having. I though ear nose and throat specialists are specialist inEAR, nose and throat?! I wasn't even examined. I was in his office a total of 10 minutes, and that was mostly spend filling out paper work. I feel duped.

Very, very old school styled, which just wasn't for me. Felt very rushed, didn't really address the problem I went in for and didn't ask me for my medical history at all.

Dr. Ryan is absolutely amazing and I wish I visited him sooner for my issue, I felt at ease and it felt like I was being listened to instead of just rushed out and diagnosed. The young woman at the frontdesk was on her own today, but she did her absolute best to juggle multiple patients, phone calls, door bell rings, along with my insurance approval and appointment for some further testing. I absolutely recommend this doctor and staff to anyone in need of a great ENT!

Saw me 4 weeks ago. Referred me to 2 testing facilities. Went back today after test results. He didn't really address my problem. Referred me to another doctor. Would have preferred to see this other doctor first.

One of the best doctor visits I've ever had. He was extremely nice, knowledgeable, great conversation, funny, charming- an all around wonderful experience. He was able to find the source of my issue, which two other doctors weren't able to detect.Will definitely be keeping him as my ENT Dr.

Dr. Ryan is adorable. While he absolutely took my issues seriously, he was able to make jokes as well, which I appreciate in a doctor, especially one who is looking far up into my nose. Very busy practice but lovely and competent reception staff!

He was running very late and had booked 2 clients at 11:30am and another at 11:45am. I felt very rushed during my 15 minute meeting with him and feel that it was not worth my insurance co-pay amount.

I was not impressed with the doctor. He seemed friendly on the surface but I found his bedside manner lacking. His eyes glazed over as I spoke about my problem - he was almost condescending with his obvious lack of interest.I had ear wax accumulate over my eardrum which temporarily impacted my hearing. It was a simple case of removing the wax but the doctor said that it needed to soften before he removed it. Thankfully I was able to get an appointment with another doctor the very next morning who removed the wax very easily.

I have some ear ache and infection. The doctor seems really impatient to listen to my questions and explanation of my issues and concerns. I tried to explain my history of itchiness of ear and problem of using ear bud, butthe doctor tried to stop me a few times and just try to finish the visit ASAP in a rush. I would say he is lease patient doctor I have ever met. I choose him because I need an immediate appointment which is close to my office, but it seems his good review doesn't reflect the how the doctor is fro my experience.

Unfortunately he didn't really explain what he was doing, looking for, possible diagnosis, etc. He started to perform a procedure without any notice as to what he was going to be doing. He was quick, but almost seemed rushed - like he just wanted me to get out.

I was referred to Dr. Ryan by my long time primary care physician. This was the first time I had seen him and I was exceptionally impresses by his attention and patience in explaining his diagnosis and choice of treatments tome. Furthermore, he called me on his own initiative two days later to follow up. Even physicians with whom I have long term relationships expect me to make the follow-up calls, so this was an exceptional unexpected bonus. Dr. Ryan is the kind of doctor that is becoming increasing difficult to find.
