Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Dettelbach was very kind and listened to all my concerns. I felt like I was in good hands!
Pleasant and answered all my questions directly.
Dr. Dettelbach, as always, was professional and personable. He took great care of me, answered all questions, explained everything clearly, and handled everything quite well. I highly recommend to him to anyone looking for a great E-N-T.
This was a follow-up visit, and Dr. Dettelbach listened carefully to my concerns and addressed them. I felt i was in good hands.
Excellent. Dr. Dettelbach listens well, evaluates, and then explains clearly.
We came on the snow day, and still we received excellent attention and treatment. We had a list of issues on which we wanted the doctor's help, and Dr Dettelbach proceeded to attend carefully to each of them; I was very pleased with the focused attention we received. Florian, Dr Dettelbach's assistant, had the perfect warm and informal manner needed to deal with my teenage son, who was the patient this time. I'd recommend this practice and Dr Dettelbach.
The staff is excellent, caring and informative. Wait time was less than 15 minutes. Dr. Dettelbach was very direct and spelled out clearly what his diagnosis was and what his treatment recommendation was, and seems to have solved the problem. I am quite satisfied.
Friendly staff, short wait times for a specialist
Dr. Dettelbach was great. Easy to talk to, informative, highly recommend him.
Dr. Dettlelbach is excellent and clearly knows his field. The wait time was okay but the appointment took a bit longer than it really should have. I suspect this is due to his friendly nature and conversation with patients and parents.
Doctor was thorough, pleasant, and helpful. Aslways
Excellent care and friendly, professional staff.
He is professional, thorough and explains information clearly.
Dettlebach is great.
Outstanding service by the whole staff.
Pleasant manner, calm and direct. Very professional. Definitely recommend.
Very professional, front office staff are incredibly friendly, and Dr. Dettelbach is clearly knowledgeable but also able to explain to me what is wrong! I highly recommend this office!
Everything was great- I was called back at the time of my appointment and seen right away. I would highly recommend both him and the practice.
Excellent Doctor !
great - followed up an ear cleaning with hearing test
Excellent doctor and excellent service by the front office. Thanks.
Very professional and informative.
Professional and on time
Dr put me at ease and made procedure less intense.
Very professional evaluation. Thanks, David Epstein
Arrived early and got right in to see Doctor. Everything went well as always and am pleased.
We visited Dr. Dettelbach for a follow-up from surgery my daughter had earlier in the year. He has a good bedside manner with kids and is fairly easy to talk to. His approach is a good balance of proactive treatment with "waiting-and-seeing," which works for my daughter's case.
It was over an hour and a half past our appointment time before we were able to see the doctor. Which is particularly egregious since the staff requests that you arrive 30 minutes early. Every time I've been there the wait is at least an hour. Also annoying, is the large screen in the waiting room with non stop plastic surgery ads.
Very nice visit the Dr covered everything well. He did not rush us and I would recomend him to anyone I knew looking for a ENT Doctor.
very straight forward with his explanations and treatment
The appointment was fine but the number of reminders I got about the appointment was annoying. I got both emails and text messages frequently starting the day I made the appointment.
I've been using this doctor for 11 years. I am concerned that wherever I go next I will not find a doctor as good as him
I would return to the practice but to see another doctor who my children see. he did not listen to what i was telling him, gave me some meds after i told him i already had them from a previous doctor. kept talking about what he would do next time. i can't hear that is why i went to him. my insurance changed and i could not continue to see the other doctor.
Both staff and the doctor were pleasant in their manners, answering our questions promptly and providing advice on treatment! All areas of the exams were clean and comfortable, as well.
It was my first visit to this office, the audiologist spent a good amount of time talking with me and explaining things. She was very personable. Dr. Mark Dettelbach was friendly and efficient. All the check marks are clicked off. If I had something serious that needed medical intervention, I'd certainly follow up with Dr. Dettelbach. He was thorough and spent time with me. Since I have tinnitus, the best ENT has to offer is making sure it's not a growth, it seems. There's not much conversation about how to manage it, cope with it, or figure it out. The goal is just to make sure everything is done so that a growth is not suspected. More tests. Very thorough. Not comforting. Not helpful. Modern medicine. Still, if I was worried about a growth, I'd come see Dr. Dettelbach. I'll probably try acupuncture next. And my dentist. I'll work out some other things, too. If I haven't figured it out on my own, I would go back to see Dr. Dettelbach because he showed concern about the slight potentiality for a growth and he seems like he would be a good doctor for an identifiable problem. I'm glad he wasn't pushy about tests, that doesn't go over well with me. He was genuine and I didn't feel rushed. I'm probably grumpy because my ear is ringing and I haven't learned to accept it yet.
Very nice and professional.
One if the better doctors appointment I've had. Quick and helpful.
Great! Very personable, I highly recommend him
Immediately went to talk about surgery and did not explain why or other alternatives. Also did not explain results of other tests he ordered performed in his office. He seemed knowledgeable but I would have liked more of an explanation besides "this is what I do everyday."
Really helped me with my sinus infection
He is an excellent doctor, professional, caring, and knowledgeable.
I waited maybe 5-7 minutes before I was called to the back and Dr. Dettelbach and his medical assistant were very polite and professional. Overall, it was a great experience.
Excellent Doctor with strong, courteous support and administrative staff.
Dr. Dettelbach was great, and very competent. My visit with him was for a consultation; my next step is a simple outpatient procedure that I've yet to schedule.
I am ALWAYS pleased with my treatments
He was efficient, kind, zeroed in on the problem, and worked to help me immediately. Everything I could ask for!
The appointment was quick and efficient, and they even got me into the exam room before my appointment was scheduled to start!
Great bedside manner Excellent knowledge Really cares about his patiemts
Mark is great and professional Dr.
no time wasted
Friendly staff, convenient location... glad I found them!
it was fine
He was so professional and explained everything. He answered all of my questions. He made sure I didn't feel rushed or uncomfortable. What a great doctor.
Dr Dattelbach was great. Asked lots of questions, listened to the answers, knew exactly what had to be done, was clear and concise in his description of taking care of my ear issue. I will go back again,. and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an ENT.
He was very business-like, answered my questions, except did not seem to worry about drug interactions. I take an anti-depressant and the stereoid that was prescribed can produce depressive/manic reactions. Otherwise, the auditory exam seemed very well done and he seemed very clear.
Dr. Dettelbach gave me a technical delivery of his clinical assessment,which essentially dismissed the validity of my symptoms, and the resultant debilitation and discomfort. His prescription: Learn to live with it. Fortunately, a second opinion from another Doctor led to effective surgery and I have been liberated from the a condition which sapped my strength and was very uncomfortable. Right call.
We love Dr Mark; we recommend him to a lot of people but waiting and hour for an appointment scheduled is very frustrating with a child. we get notifications about appointment times I would love to receive a notification that he is running behind!
This is a really first-rate ENT practice. Although we usually see Drs. Dettlebach or Oringher, we've seen others as well, and they've always been excellent.
Dr Dettelbach was really great with my teenager and answered all his questions.
Very focused and thorough in his assessment. Good explanation of his findings and recommendations. The nurse and audiologist were very professional and friendly. Overall, Dr Dettelbach and his team create a sense of confidence in their approach.
cleaned me up and gave clear marching orders to-avoid problems
Very professional and nice. Has a great knowledge of medicine and interesting to talk to. Very approachable and he explained everything to me clearly.
Everyone I dealt with was helpful and pleasant and professional. I was seen on time and things were explained clearly.
Dr. Dettelbach is knowledgeable and thorough. He provided me with a second opinion and validated that my medical concerns were not in my head as previously described by my initial physician (whom I no longer use). I now have a plan of action and improving.
Dr. Dettelbach was very thorough, and it was easy to get an appointment
Thorough, patient and professional. Very pleased with the visit.
Very helpful. He took time to address an unrelated problem which was also within his specialty.
Dr. Dettelbach was polite and friendly, but I waited over an hour overall and did not get much information or help for my case. He essentially doubled-down on the treatment I'd been on that had done relatively little to help. I would be more sympathetic if I didn't have to pay so much in post-insurance costs for the procedure, which is crazy because I have a very good, federal government-provided health insurance plan that covers most of these procedures fully. So my visit was expensive, time consuming, and of questionable utility.
DR. Dettelbach gave me the impression that he could care less about treating me, instead he seemed more interested on moving on to the next patient. Ended up getting a second opinion that was grossly different than the diagnosis I received from him. I would not recommend him to anyone else.
Dr Dettelbach is terrific .. My son and I both go to him and he has been consistently wonderful as has his staff!! I wouldn't go to anyone but him or this practice for ENT issues!!
Very nice Doctor .Great location as well
Great visit - all pro, honest direct and made daughter / me feel included and informed
The doctor left a lot to be desired - he didn't listen to my symptoms & dismissed the opinion of my primary care provider.
Great doctor and a good meeting. The wait time was a killer though.
Dr. Dettelbach asked questions of what I have been experiencing and provided his recommendations. He is very professional and personable.
Dr. Dettelbach was excellent, the office staff was very helpful and accommodating.
Very personable and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
all staff very pleasant
Dr. Dettelbach was personable and knowledgeable Andy hopes for treatment today were exceeded.
He was really good!
He is amazing and takes time to make sure that you are comfortable and understand everything. He is the best!
I had a very pleasant and productive visit with Dr. Dettelbach, who was very open to discussing my medical condition and treatment options. I would like to suggest an improvement in the registration process: I did register on line but I did not see that I had to print the forms and bring them with me. Today, many doctor offices have a linked Internet system where I can input my data directly to the doctor's file system. A direct entry, initiated by the patient, would save administrative and waiting time and would potentially reduce errors. Plus it would save paper and ink!
Waiting hour is too long
Clear, concise, compassionate. Great with my 4 year old who was a little nervous -- and helped ease concerns of mom and dad too.
We waited less than 10 minutes. The receptionist was helpful. The service was great and my 8 year old son felt comfortable. Dr. Dettelbach was professional, understanding and he explained the diagnosis in a way that was easy to understand.
Nice people, efficient operation. Doctor explained the happily minor issue in a way that a layperson could easily understand.
I arrived to the appointment 10 minutes early with all paperwork completed, and I still had to wait about 45 minutes to be called in from the waiting room (more than a half hour after my scheduled appointment). Once I was seen, the examination was rapid and focused and felt a bit rushed. I was sent a prescription and sent on my way with little instruction for follow-up.
I had a very good appointment, and he was very helpful! Gave me multiple recommendations, and told me everything I should keep an eye out for in case my condition got worse. I'd highly recommend him!
This was my first visit with Dr. Dettelbach, and I was very pleased with the manner in which I was treated, as well as the outcome: I CAN HEAR AGAIN! Should I experience any further problems with my ears, I will happily take them to Dr. Dettelbach and his more-than-competent staff.
he was great with my three-year old. easy to get appointments. love the online appt app. We will be using him for all our ENT needs going forward!
Dr. Dettelbach does an excellent job making my young daughter feel comfortable when we come for an appointment. He also gives us comfort by communicating so well with us her issues and ways we can address them. We wholeheartedly recommend him as an ENT doctor.
Excellent, as always.
Dr. Dettelbach is fabulous. He is attentive, listens, and thoughtfully expresses his opinion and proposed actions.
Listened closely. Addressed my concerns.
Have seen him before. Definitely Top Doc in DC area
Sharp, engaged, and a good communicator. Thorough in seeking a difficult-to-diagnose issue.
Dr. Dettelbach was great - I was not happy that I was told (by the nurse) the hearing test would take 2 minutes, when it actually took closer to 30!
Quick and correct diagnosis.
Dr. Dettelbach has a great bedside manner and always listens to all concerns. He is a thorough diagnostician and is gentle in discussing options for care.
I was very satisfied
Very professional, very knowledgeable and very punctual! I was impressed.
He had a good bedside manner with my young daughter, clearly explained what strategies we should employ to better understand the issues she was experiencing and was able to get us in and out of the office within 30 minutes. I would recommend to fellow parents.
All staff are courteous and professional. Reminders are sent punctually. State of the art care.
Dr. Dettelbach is friendly and has a great professional manner. He talks a bit too fast for somebody that speaks English as a second language like myself. But, I had nothing negative about him personally.
Dr Dettelbach was great. The front desk staff was not very welcoming and did a very poor job managing the hour and 5 minute wait. At first they said he was only 20 minutes behind and then at the 30 minute mark, when I went to ask them what was going on they said it was another 20 minutes, which it clearly was not. Having to wait an hour and 5 minutes for a 10 minute consultation isn't he best way to introduce the practice.
Never got in -appt w original doc was cancelled then we remade appointment with another doc and then arrived to a morning appointment to find he was already 1 hr behind so we left. Ridiculous. If the docs knew what was happening they would be mortified.
Very informative and listened. Made solid recommendations for immediate and longer care plan. Look forward to returning to him.
Dr. Dettelbach was sensitive to my concerns and genuinely interested in making sure that I got rid of my persistent sinus infection.
Dr. Dettelbach is personable, caring, and courteous. Despite having the limitation of short mandated visits, he was able/willing to take the time to talk to me about my medical issues, describe treatment options available, and outline next steps. He seemed confident and competent. I would go back to him.
Excellent! My concerns were explained clearly and resolved.
visit with Mark Dettelbach was great but the wait (1.5hrs) was long
Dr. Dettelbach was very friendly and personable. He listened very well and was very thorough. I appreciated his knowledge
Excellent physician. Highly recommend
I really like Dr. Dettlebach, he takes his time answering your questions and is a caring doctor.
Office was extremely well organized and efficient. Dr. Dettelbach and support staff were personable, knowledgeble and efficient as well. Highly recommend.
Wait time too long. Mark is great, once you finally get to see him.
I like Dr. Dettlebach. He has a very pleasant beside manner. I found him and his staff to be very thorough. He gave me a diagnosis right away. I would definitely recommend this practice!
Great doctor! So lucky to have him look at my daughter, determine the problem and fix it!
It was a successful visit. Most of the work was done by Dr Dettelbach's competent and friendly assistant. My interaction was Dr Dettelback was short, efficient and adequate.
An expert in his field, with a great bedside manner as well. Highly recommended.
I hope this is not taken the wrong way. My comments are purely somewhat of a "wake up call". This is really my second time seeing Dr. Dettelbach. I had a office visit referral with him a little over 10 years ago. My office visit, then, was great. I was seen on time and was so appreciative of the care that I received form both Dr. Dettlebach and his staff. This second, my office visit was nice but could have been better. The staff was great but the waiting time was not. I was the only patient sitting in the waiting room for over an hour. I got there a little early in case there were more registration papers that had to be signed. After an hour I was called back into the examining room. His technician, cleaned my ears out, then I waited another 20 minutes before the doctor came in the room. When Dr. Dettelbach did come in, I explained that I had just contacted my work and apprised them of the delay in my return. Dr. Dettelbach's reason for this set back was due to two prior emergencies that day. If only this could have been communicated to someone at the front desk that would have given me a chance to reschedule my appointment. He stepped out of the exam room again for another 20 minutes. To make a long story short, my office visit was scheduled for a 10 minute procedure and I was there for over an hour and a half, 90% of it wait time. I had a 3:30pm appointment and I did not leave until after 5pm, not arriving back to work until 5:30pm. I'm a little let down as well as feeling disrespected in regards to my time. I will still go back to Dr. Dettlebach in the future because I think he is a very knowledgable doctor and just maybe he will be more considerate of my time also.
Very professional and respectful Doctor
Good first visit - he was thoughtful and took time with us although he was busy.
Good bedside manner. Very thorough and was very helpful. Diagnosed right away. Staff knowledgeable and professional.
Extremely professional office from registration to the techs to the physicians. Best ENT office I ever visited on multiple occasions.
I have not cared for my experience with Dr. Dettelbach, however this is more of a reflection of the office's organization. It took me three weeks to get the results of my blood test and none of my phone calls were returned. I simply got an e-mail without any follow-up despite multiple messages. It goes without saying that the issues I went in for have not been resolved.
A great doc. I am happy with my care.
Dr. D has a great manner about him and really personalizes his care.
Very quick service--and personal interaction was great. A routine, but necessary, check-up.
Great appointment. Got exactly what I needed.
Very professional, thoughtful, warm manner by both assistant and physician. Procedure was done carefully and without pain.
Dr. Dettelbach was very professional. He was quick and precise and patiently answered all the questions I had. I would definitely recommend him!
Dr. Dettelbach was extremely kind and comfortable making my 2 year old daughter relaxed during our appointment. He was clear and professional with me and took the time to answer all of my questions without making me feel rushed (it's a very busy practice). I am 100% confident that Dr. Dettelbach will take excellent care of my daughter.
Dr. Dettelbach was very professional, a good listener and a good diagnostician for my daughter who had been mistakenly treated for an ear infection with antibiotics when instead she had TMJ.
The office staff was a bit inappropriate. They were complaining about their doctor visits to other doctors. Dr. Dettelbach's Medical Assistant was amazing. Very nice, thorough, and answered all my questions. As for the doctor, he is very good, to the point, and doesn't make you feel rushed.
Very thorough. Dr. Dettlebach and the audiologist were very professional and thorough.
Just ok. Nothing to write home about.
We like seeing Mark. The big issue with the Chevy Chase and Downtown DC offices is is the excessive wait time, which in our experience has been between 50-75 minutes. The Feldman Group has got to do a better job of that. We waited 60 minutes, even though we called ahead 2 hours prior when we were told he was on time.
I only sat in the waiting room for five minutes- maybe less- before I was seen. The technician/staff member listened to and wrote down the issues I was experiencing, and Dr. Dettelbach came in shortly thereafter and got right to work. It was a big relief to have my issues resolved so quickly, versus other places where you sometimes have to make a second appointment.
One of the best. I have visited ENT specialists around the world and Dr. Dettelbach is at the top. Master surgeon, master doctor. I have had other doctors compliment his surgical work.
Good visit ... when I finally got in. Really big morning rush, seemed overbooked. Dettelbach was very good and pleasant. But he obviously had a lot of people to see, so not much time to talk outside of the diagnosis.
I really like Dr. Dettelbach. He listens and is thorough. A very nice man...a very good ENT!
He is a very good doctor. I highly recommend him.
Personable, knowledgeable, and attentive.
Intelligent, straight forward professional.
Very satisfactory; Office staff, physician's assistant, and physician all acted professionally and were warm and cordial, creating a comfortable atmosphere. These comments apply to both my initial and follow-up appointments.
I really liked this physician. He is extremely polite, helpful and willing to answer any and all of my questions. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great ENT doctor.
Mark seems like a competent professional with a concerned bedside manner.
Very personable and thorough.
Great doctor with good ideas.
To the point. Very action oriented an no nonsense. I prefer this approach to my treatment.
Great doctor and great with kids. He also does not push treatments on patients but practices good medical ethics.
The problem was recognized and promptly resolved. It was a busy time, but the wait was worth it.
Dr. Dettelbach was terrific: knowledgable and took the time to check out everything and explain things. I walked out with confidence and relief.
The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The wait time wasn't too long. Dr. Dettlebach took his time to answer any questions or concerns and was top-notch in his procedure. I also requested a hearing test, and was very impressed when the doctor and his staff were able to perform this immediately with a follow-up consultation with him concerning the results right after.
I am a new patient. Dr. Mark Dettelbach is very professional and efficient. He improved my hearing in my first visit. I strongly recommend him to other patient for hearing related problems.
I went to see Dr. Dettelbach due to hearing loss in one ear. He did a terrific job of diagnosing and solving my immediate hearing loss problem (with prednisone,) as well as identifying the root cause of my hearing loss, which is a benign tumor. I'm bummed about the tumor, but buoyed by the referrals and information Dr. Dettelbach gave me for treating the tumor. I would highly recommend Dr. Dettelbach for your ENT issues.
I had never been to an ENT doctor before, and I didn't know what to expect. It was a great experience, and now I can hear so much better than when I left my house this morning.
The waiting time was way too long. Dr. Dettelbach is nice and knowledgeable. Explain things well.
AWESOME. I can now hear and breathe much better. Thanks Doc!
Solid assessment, good prognosis and guidance, awaiting results.
I can hear out of my right ear!
Dr. Dettelbach is engaging, highly professional and a good teacher. Gives practical advice and decisive. No complaints at all. There was a bit of a wait at the beginning, but pretty short considering everything. The Physician's Assistant, Diana was also very professional and friendly.
The people there seemed to enjoy working with each other. Dr. D was very good with my 13 year old son. Highly recommend.
Very professional. Superb bedside manners. Great sense of humor!
Dr.Dettlebach and his assistant Diana were fantastic! Calm cool and collected, and most professional!
He's a great guy and on point.
Dr. Dettelbach has seen me and my children. He is extremely thorough and informative- we've only had great appointments with him
I had to take my kids and both the staff and the Doctor were very patient and understanding. They were also very pleasant and professional.
I forgot my photo ID but they let it slide. Nice front desk staff. Dr. Dettelbach was laid back, knowledgeable and informative.
Seemed knowledgable, however did not come to a concrete conclusion of symptoms. Granted, I came to him with many and he said it was possibly TMJ and my minor earing loss.
The office staff was criticizing the doctors right in front of patients waiting to be seen! Very unprofessional!
I just love the visit and office staff was excellent.
This was my first time seeing this doctor in the practice. He was very professional and also friendly. He took the time to learn about me as a person. His exam was careful and well explained. I would definitely see Dr. Dettlebach again.
It took them 3 weeks to get my results back to me. This office seems very disorganized.
I have been to Dr. Dettelbach on several occasions and he has always been very professional, knowlegable and really listens to your concerns. I have and will recommend him and any of the other doctors at the Feldman Group ENT. The staff is awsome as well.
Friendly and efficient from the front desk to the nurse to the Dr. I was in and out in under an hour which included filling out first-time-patient forms, which I was aware of and expecting.
Had seen this doctor for the past year who had been very helpful with my ear infections. Saw him this morning and I will not be returning again. If someone tells you she is in pain while at the office and the comment gets brushed off, then calls twice again that afternoon pleading for pain medication and you ignore her, why would she ever see that doctor again. Therefore I will go elsewhere to find someone who can help.
Very profesional. He was running late but took the appropiate amount Of time.
really great efficient office and friendly staff. saw me right away and was carring.
I appreciate that Dr. Dettelbach listened to my concerns and explored other possible causes of my problem, rather than dismissing them. This helped put my mind at ease and also gave me the ability to walk away with confidence of being one step closer to recovery.
Efficient, professional, and congenial.
I thought he could improve his listening skills. I was not pleased that he recommend OTC sprays that I had already used. I felt like I had to jump through his hoops to get the treatment I was seeking. His waiting room was a nightmare. It was filled was undisciplined noisy kids, whose mother or nanny was chatting on her cell phone in the hall, while the rest of us endured the kids' noise.
There was a mix-up in the appointment time. I was told that the appointment was for 3:50 instead of 2:40. I showed the front office staff the notice that confirmed my 2:40 appointment. Still it took nearly 40 minutes to see the doctor. As usual the doctor was excellent.
Dr. Dettelbach is great with kids. I've seen him on two separate occasions for my boys, aged 4 and 6. He made them laugh and comfortable. I would highly recommend him.
Overall it was satisfactory however the appointment required an unanticipated return visit.
Dr, Dettelbach is awesome and a fantastic doctor. Very straightforward and caring about his patients. The only negative I have is that sometimes it can take 45 minutes after my appointment to actually see him.
Dr. Dettelbach is very professional and personable. He makes you feel how much he cares about his patients. He's a great doctor.
Asking patients to show up an hour before surgery is unnecessary.
We waited between 30 to 60 minutes most likely closer to 30 but we arrived at least 45 minutes early. Not a problem for the wait.
Thorough, informative, gave me options, took action. Staff asked good questions. I feel confident that my care is being managed by the best.
It took me an hour to see a physician's assistant who performed a routine 10-minute ear cleaning. I don't mind a 10-minute wait, but an hour is unacceptable. My time is valuable.
The doctor was fine; however, the online appointment program made an error which caused me to be delayed by half an hour at my appointment.
Mark is smart competent and friendly. Julian W
yes! very nice.
I will use Dr Dettelbach again. I am planning to have a procedure to improve my breathing through the nose, in coupe weeks. Excellent doctor
I went to Dr. Dettelbach for his practice's good reputation for turbinate coblation procedures. I had a consultation visit which was very quick and easy. I was able to schedule my procedure for the following week and the procedure was again a fairly quick appointment. My healing went just as Dr. Dettelbach had described and a few weeks later, my nose problems were gone! My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the doctor seemed to be rushing the appointment and while he was friendly, I wouldn't say his bedside manner is the best.
Dr. Dettelbach was outstanding. I actually learned a lot from him during my visit. My experience with this physician was excellent. Highly recommended.
I feel like he and his staff listened to me and offered potential solutions. I will absolutely make him my perm. ENT doctor.
Extremely efficient, prompt, professional. Concise diagnosis combined with appropirate intervention. Candid advice/commentary and provided excellent context and explanatory content during the visit, in addition to providing appropriate options.
Everything went well. However, I made an appointment with the DR but I was shown into the room with a Nurse Practitioner. I should have been told, preferably by the doctor, that he would not be treating me. I did see the Dr when the NP couldn't complete the procedure. While everything went well, I felt that I had been passed off without consultation.
He's GREAT.. Both I, and my 9 year old son go to Dr. Dettelbach. He explained the procedure that he preformed on my son thoroughly and put him at ease. Hes has a very pleasant manner, is easy to talk to and makes visiting the Dr relatively painless. My father was a Dr so I have high expectations for my healthcare professional and Dr. Dettelbach more than meets those expectations.
I thought he was highly knowledgeable, efficient, painstaking and businesslike. Such a joy to have my hearing completely restored after I had been almost completely deaf due to impacted ear wax.
Dr. Dettelbach is an outstanding physician. I highly recommend him.
The Dr. was pleasant and thorough.
Mark is very knowledgeable and explains things clearly. He has a good manner as well. Thanks.
He was friendly and to the point, made sure I understand how to fix my habits so I wouldn't require another visit.
He's excellent, and very low key, which I like.
This is a consistently exccellent and dependable physician.
Highly professional, he prescribed me an ear drop which cured my itchy ear instantly.
Very friendly and informed us throughout the procedure.
He was thorough, and explained everything to me. I would see him again in the future if I have an ENT problem.
Great. Knowledgeable, professional. and realistic.
After struggling with breathing through my nose for 5 years, Dr. Dettelbach cleared me right up. What I particularly liked about his process, is that he didn't immediately try to sell me on the procedure (that I ended up going with) but instead tried other less invasive and cheaper methods to help me breath. Once we decided to do the procedure, it was done expeditiously and with precision. I was out of his office in 30 mins. Now that the swelling has gone down completely, I can take full easy breaths, my nasally speech is gone, I sleep much better and have more energy.
I felt much less worried after seeing Dr. Dettelbach today—thank you!
My second time to see Dr Mark. It was very pleasant. He explains the saliva enlargement and sees no immediate concern. I wanted a follow up opinion and I got it. Thanks v much... Romeo
The front desk staff was prompt and helpful, and Dr Dettelbach was informative, thorough and reassuring. The waiting room in the DC office was too small for the number of patients that were there, but overall, it was a very good experience.
Very great with kids and detailed with diagnosis. He made my son feel relaxed and stress free. Great office.
Always informative and beneficial; the entire staff is very knowledgeable and supportive and Dr Dettlelbach takes time to listen and discuss treatment options and plan.
The NP and audiologist were thorough in the examination for my ear problems, and I was relieved to be seen by an actual doctor for once. He gave me a completely different explanation/treatment for the problem, and after a week, I think I'm starting to get better. The only bad thing is that I had to wait over an hour after my scheduled appointment before I was seen, which is just too long.
He was very personable and did not keep me waiting at all.
He diagnosed my problem and gave me a small sample of medicine and a coupon for my medication. Hopefully it will work!
Excellent, as always.
I think he is terrific and very much an expert in allergies and the kinds of medicines and nasal sprays to use and to avoid.. He is very personable and gave me great information so I highly recommend him..
I felt as though he provided me all the information I needed. I kept having to ask him questions to get him to talk about my daughters allergy. I was hoping he'd offer information freely instead of waiting for me to ask questions. It made me concerned that I wasn't going in to the appointment informed well enough.
He was a very nice, took time to answer my questions. However, I had to wait over an hour past my scheduled appointment to see him which is just way too long.
It was wonderful and he gave me A good tip on how to use cotton balls and Vaseline when washing my hair to protect my ears. These are the best ENT Drs. I have ever gottrn treatment from. I love them! !!
Professional, efficient, thorough and excellent physician.
Mark is very friendly and he is knowledgeable about my gland issues. I was very comfortable with him. His advises are very well taken. Thanks so much... Romeo
Wonderful bedside manner, knowledgeable, quick in diagnosis, and gave many treatment options to think about.
Outstanding, professional, caring service by Dr. Dettelbach and staff. They have earned my highest recommendation!
As always, Dr. Dettlebach addressed my concerns, took the time to give me a through exam and offered a conclusion with clear instructions for the treatment of my problem. He is pleasant and courteous.
knows his stuff. Keeps the show moving.
Everyone in the office was very nice & professional. They apologized for the long wait.
Very positive visit. Dr, Dettelbach and his staff were very professional and answered all my questions. Recommend to other people.
Efficient, quick, got me up to radiology quickly. Great experience.
great doctor and very nice. I'm thankful he took care of me and helped me with my condition. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an ENT doctor.
Excellent! I would go back,if needed.
Dr. Dettelbach and his colleagues were incredibly welcoming, warm, and responsive. They were able to accurately diagnose and address my issues.
We are very happy with Dr. Dettelbach and the staff at the office. Sometimes the wait is longer but it's usually due to their time and care they extend to patients so totally worth it.
Dr Dettelbach was friendly and thorough. The medical staff were also quite friendly and I felt very comfortable there.
Although there was a relatively long wait (35 minutes) before I was seen, the doctor and his associates took lots of time with me and made me feel I was getting their full attention. I appreciated the fact that I could have a hearing test on the spot, right after seeing the doctor, got the results right away, and could plan for next steps all in the one visit. They were very informative and helpful, without pushing any one hearing aide product. Highly recommended!
Love being able to book on line, everything very smooth, doctor, audiology staff and front desk all good. I have to have some tests but I feel in safe hands.
I LOVE the online appointment system. I wish all my Docs had this system. However, since I always go to his Chevy Chase office I assumed that when I scheduled my appt it was for that office. Apparently, I made the appt. for his DC office. I missed the appt and had to reschedule. It was clearly my mistake, but I have to believe many other people would make the same mistake which is hugely frustrating for me as well as the doc.
The visit was great! They always take great care of me.
I knew of Dr. Dettelbach because my sister had been treated but him. My experience was great!
Dr. seemed detached, not very communicative, hurried.
Everyone in the office was professional and kind. Overall, a very good experience. I would recommend this office and doctor to anyone.
Very professional, thorough, fully satisfied.
I was very pleased with how quickly everything was handled considering I was a new patient. I was in and out within one our and very pleased with the technology, the doctor, the nurse and the way I was treated. I strongly recommend this office.
Doctor was great! Office is a little chaotic and disorganized. Nurses and doctor were great though
Everything was handled quickly and professionally
He dont call back i still waiting
I thought it was a great visit. He answered my questions, gave me some thorough tests, and made me feel at ease. I will make him my regular ENT.
Office staff were fun and professional. Medical Assistant was outstanding.
We are very happy with his services ,he is a good surgery doctor, he surgery my daughter ears and put tubs on it. we were satisfy with his services.
I found it disturbing that even though I had a fairly early appointment, 10am, I still had to wait almost 40 minutes. The doctor though was excellent. Nice manner, good listener, and was clear and efficient in laying out the next steps.
Fast, efficient and pleasant.
The wait time from entering the office to being seen by Dr. Dettelbach was 1 hour 20 minutes. The front office staff were unprofessional (yelling to me across waiting room), defensive and did not attempt to give me an accurate picture of how long the wait would actually be, despite me repeatedly asking this question because of another commitment. Very poor experience with the office staff from calls through office visit. Clinical staff very good.
The doctor offered a very professional service, was very friendly and patient and was also very nice. In addition the staff by Dr. gave me great advice on the care of my ears.
Great doctor. Very personable. Communicates clearly. Love his assistant (forgot his name).
Dr. Dettelbach is a supremely competent provider and diagnostician. I am very lucky to be a patient in this practice.
Professional; knowledgable, thorough.
It was okay. The wait time is ridiculous and the staff unapologetic. I get the doctor is busy and things come up, but doctors aren't the only ones that have busy lives. And if I was an hour late, they would have cancelled the appointment and charged me. I am really on the fence about if I want to go back or find another doctor.
Dr. Dettelbach was very professional and personable. I trust his judgement and I would highly recommend him.
I was very pleased with the visit and got exactly what I'd hoped out of it. Dr. Dettelbach was direct, pleasant and informative, took time to see if I had questions.
Great. He seemed to know his stuff. He quickly figured out what my family doc couldn't. He explained well what he was going to do, what his diagnosis was, and what the treatment would be. He was personable and socially capable. I could not have imagined it going better, really.
I have recommended Mark Dettlebach to all my family and friends.
Dr. Dettelbach is friendly and thorough. He listened well and took the time to address my concerns.
Friendly and informative doctor. Gave me all the information to weigh my options and took a logical, risk-based approach. Had a turbinate reduction which helped my congestion significantly.
I thought he was really nice but he didnt seem too enthralled in what I was saying and just to hear back results, I had to call the office multiple times to finally just speak to someone and not an answering machine. When I did finally get a hold of someone, it wasnt him but a medical assistant who wasnt even in the room during the exam. All around, I would probably choose someone new.
always happy with his professional service
Much appreciated Dr. Dettelbach's care and expertise.
Great office. super friendly staff
Dr. Mark is fantastic with kids and explains everything clearly to them (and parents).
excellent visit with this specialist. very good bedside manner. appeared very knowledgeable with his craft. the nurse working with him was also excellent and very professional. i heard them talking while i was waiting for the doctor to come in and they sounded like theyre a great team. will definitely recommend this ent doctor to others.
Was straight to the point. Fixed the problem fast.
He's great! Wonderful bedside manner, prompt and courteous. Plus, he knows his medicine!
Friendly doctor. He explained all my options and was thorough in his examinations. I was being evaluated for a nasal valve collapse from a broken nose and he gave me a spray and recommended we check back in in a month to evaluate more aggressive treatments if needed.
Good professional practice. Dr. Dettelbach is great with kids. I would return if needed.
Very efficient in-take. No abnormal waits between nurse/dr segments. Dr. Dettelbach was straightforward and professional, which is all I need from a doctor. Time will tell if treatment strategy works, but from an interactive service experience I am very satisfied.
He had a great manner with our teen son. The wait there is often a little too long but the care is excellent.
Fantastic Doctor, Highly Recommend
Very pleased. He even called in my prescription for me.
nice informed visit
It was fine, though the doctor seemed overextended. I did a good not of waiting both in the waiting room and in the exam room.
Seemed very capable and professional.
I have seen Dr. Dettlebach several times previously and highly recommend him.
Very professional. Clean, neat and knowledgeable.
Dr. Dettelbach was professional, thorough, quick, direct, clear, focused, and skilled
Minus the wait, it was great!
Dr. Dettelbach, listened, allowed me to ask questions and explained things well. Also gave me alternative soloutions to my condition and allowed me to choose the one I wanted to try first.
Very thorough and thoughtful doctor, would and will go to again for follow-up.
He's always very professional and never acts rushed. He spends time with you and answers all questions. It's always a great experience.
Really helpful and took the time to explain the issues with my throat, rather than just throwing jargon at me and giving me a prescription.
Very thorough. Addressed all my issues and provided solutions.
I was completely satisfied. Dr. Dettelbach and his assistant were prompt and efficient. I'd definitely return if necessary.
Love him, and recommend him all the time.
Very courteous, friendly and professional
Great Visit. Hopefully we can address my symptoms....
Excellent staff and doctor. Knowledgeable and professional.
Very good in dealing with young children. He has very good tricks to make children cooperate
Dr. Dettelbach was attentive and responsive to my concerns. He was quick to address the issues presented and evaluated me for other ear, nose and throat conditions. I would recommend him.
Dr. Dettelbach was professional and very competent. Knew what he was doing, took one look into my ears, and got right to work. It was a simple diagnosis/procedure for him, and he went about it quickly and skillfully, though slightly brusque. I thought his bedside manner was cordial enough, though he wasn't as warm as some doctors I've met. I bet he is different with children though. Either way, I would definitely go to him again if I have another ENT need.
I am happy.
Love Dr. Dettlebach. Great with my 2 and 3 year olds. Great surgeon for tubes. Big problem with wait time. We waited over an hour today (not easy with three under 4) and usually wait at least 20 minutes to get in. D.C. office is crammed.
Dr. Dettelbach was very personable. He listened and was very professional. His staff was really great as well.
Dr. Dettelbach is thorough in his care and has a great professional demeanor. I have full confidence in his opinions, and he treats me with respect.
Dr. Dettelbach was great - he gave me medicine for my allergies and they have since been very manageable. I was in the waiting room about 30-45 minutes after my appointment time
Very pleasant office staff. Excellent with ear wax. Dr.Dettelbach is thorough and answers questions. Follows patients well.
He is very professional and experienced doctor. Many thanks!
I was pleased
He was very thorough. He took the time to explain what he was doing and what he was finding.
Everyone was very professional and friendly. Great visit!
He and his staff were exceptionally responsive to my concerns, answered questions clearly and completely, and left me feeling very glad I had had the consultation.
It was good, he was direct and quick, had me on my way quickly but I felt good with the prognosis
He was great, wait time was awful
As usual, everything with this office worked efficiently and effectively.
He was great with my 3 year old toddler. This was only the 3rd or 4th time in her life she willing let someone look in her ears and mouth. He has a fantastic bedside manner for children. Note, I found the Chevy Chase office difficult for parking and waited over 15 minutes in the garage for the elevator.
Even though the office was very very busy, the office staff was very nice and did everything they could to keep appointment times.
I like the doctor but the wait was ridiculous.
Dr. Dettlebach blends a kind manner with his expertise.
did the job in a timely and appropriate way
Very informative. He spent a lot of time explaining all of my options. Highly recommend!!!
Very nice guy; caring and seemingly thorough; but office staff was extremely inefficient resulting in a wait of more than an hour to be seen!
Explica muy bien al paciente, y le da el tiempo necesario. Nos gusto la rapides y el desempeño de los empleados.
The doctor was excellent as usual. But, as usual, there was a problem between the primary doctor and the specialist staffs on locating referral documentation. If there is a problem with the referral documentation, it seems to me that the specialist's office should notify me of the problem before the appointment.
Excellent level of care. Took care of my problem.
He was terrific! Excellent advice, spent considerable time with me, and answered my questions in a respectful and clear manner
Very knowledgeable, professional and a good listener.
Overall it was a positive experience.
He seems great. I would definitely recommend him and the office.
Wait was slightly long but he was great - pleasant, easy-going and quickly and thoroughly worked thru the issue. Will definitely go back if anything else surfaces.
Aside from the wait time, my visit was great.
I appreciate that I was able to get an appointment. I did not have to wait long, the front office staff was very efficient. He was very efficient in trying to assess the nasal issues and I will be following up with a CT scan and additional appointment.
Very satisfied with the doctor and ability to fill out new paitient paper work before hand. Would be even better if we could submit electronically. Mark understood what was needed quickly, provided a free sample to get me started and sent in my prescription. Great start!
Despite a call before hand and another assurance by the receptionist at check in that the doctor will see me on time, I had to wait for 45 min to spend 5 min with the doctor!
I like him but the jury is still out. He apparently didn't look at my list of prescriptions that I regularly take as he prescribed an antibiotic that my pharmacist said might interact with another one of my meds. The next 10 days will be the judge.
Overall it was a good experience. I got results on the spot!
In fact, since I was there to have an ear syringed and cleaned, this could largely be done by a nurse, who was extremely good. I was then briefly seen by the doctor, who was very pleasant and professional. I was very impressed by the whole process.
I was pleased with the efficiency of the office staff and the pleasant demeanor of the two doctors and phlebotomist I saw. All in all, a great experience.
The doctor and the rest of the medical staff were very cordial and professional.
the wait time was far too long. His time is obviously much more important than mine.
He was fine as was the audiologist - but the wait times are not good
Very professional, clear and articulate.
My visit with the doctor was just fine. I would recommend to others.
I've known this practice in the past and had seen Dr. Dettelbach years ago. He's great, treated me like a grownup, explained what was going on and what needed to be done, and took care of that promptly, efficiently, and kindly.
As a recent DC transplant, I was essentially looking to get my NY prescriptions re-written in DC. Dr. Dettelbach was very professional, trusted me as I described my experience with past allergists, and did not force me to jump through the hoops of re-testing, re-assessing, etc. I have had extensive experience with allergists, so I can talk pretty fluently regarding my allergies and treatment methods - I'm sure this helped to assure him that although a new patient, I was knowledgeable on my condition.
except for the wait in the office, it was great.
Dr. Dettelbach was perfectly nice and asked the right questions. If his prescription works, I'll mark him Excellent.
Great doctor - adult or pediatric. Answers questions fully, explains procedures and reasons for them completely, cares about patient comfort and concerns, up on the literature, super knowledgeable, thinks outside the box, listens closely.
The office staff was efficient. Dr. Dettelbach was great and gave me confidence that he could help with my problem.
Great "bedside" manner. Straightforward; personable, reassuring
Seeing Dr. Dettelbach wasn't that helpful and the experience of going to the 19th Street office wasn't nice. It's overcrowded and the wait time was very frustrating.
I have been to many ear doctors in my life, and Dr. Dettelbach is by far my favorite. Great demeanor, awesome staff, and always helpful. I would recommend him to anyone.
wait time much too long
highly professional; clearly explained what I needed to understand.
He was great with my daughter - very patient and answered all our questions.
Thorough, clear, personable, trustworthy
Very nice doctor and the nursing staff was great as well.
good, stright to the point, never intrupts and doesn't jump to the knife.
I have had only good experiences with this practice group and Dr. Dettelbach was no exception.
Doctor was great, but there was a very long wait to go to the examining room and then an additional wait after a nurse did a preliminary interview and exam -- hard for younger patients.
Outstandimg! Very knowledgeable and nice. Easy to talk to.
Very professional and effective.
I was very pleased with his knowledge and with the pleasant and capable service of his staff.
Very professional and efficient.
Dr. Dettelbach is the best!
All the doctors we have seen at this practice have been good. But each time I have tried to schedule with Zoc Doc, someone calls me and gives me some reason why I can't schedule that particular type of appt through ZocDoc, which they link to from the practice website. Don't waste your time with online scheduling; just call.
Dr. Mark was great with Julia who at 5 can be a challenge. He was also very much at ease dealing with two moms.
Knowledgeable and gave useful information/advice
Dr. Dettelbach is a consummate professional - knowledgeable, thorough and friendly. Over the past 10 years, I have continually been impressed, both in his dealings with me and with my children.
Very professional and competent.
The staff, from reception to nurse and phlebotomist, were all professional, courteous and efficient. Dr. Dettelbach was thorough and knowledgeable.
I've been going to Dr. Dettelbach off and on for a couple of years. Always very calming, and explains his findings well.
Dr. Dettelbach was very professional. I was pleased with his service.
Dr. Dettlebach listens well and provides solutions. Great doctor.
I arrived early (at 3:05 PM) for a 3:30 PM appointment, in order to fill in a bunch of forms. That took about 20 minutes! By 3:25 I was done with the forms, and ready to be seen. I wasn't called in until 3:55 PM. I had resolved that, at 4 PM, I was going to demand the return of my forms and I was going to leave. Fortunately, this was just a routine visit, and I could have done that without suffering any health consequences. You give the wait time three stars. I give it only one star.
I have been a patient of Dr. Dettelbach for some years. He very professional and has an easy manner and actually listens.
He is a terrific doctor, but we had to wait 40 minutes to get into the room, even though we had a morning appt.
Dr. Dettelbach was fantastic - saw me immediately, appointment was fast, professional, and informative. Would highly recommend.
Everything was excellent - Dr. Dettelbach and his 2 assistants I encountered were all very professional. I had the impression that Dr. Dettelbach knows his area of medicine very well and knows exactly what he is doing.
Great doc. Took a while to get an appt for my son, but was worth the wait. I haven't had positive experiences w/ Dr's in a long time. Excellent w/ kids. Highly recommended.
Have been using this practice for more than 20 years. I highly recommend it.
Excellent with kids, efficient.
Dr. Dettelbach is very patient and thorough. I didn't feel rushed, or like I was being "pushed through" the appointment. He listened to all of my symptoms without interruption and actually listened to my answers to his questions, which a lot of doctors don't do. I would definitely refer anyone looking for an ENT specialist to Dr. Dettelbach.
extremely knowledgeable about Meniere's
Very friendly, knowledgeable, attentive; didn't make me feel like a hypochondriac.
I arrived 10 minutes early for my appointment, and I was still seen right away! Patients are always treated very coureously in this practice. Dr. Dettelbach is an excellent physician and has given me the best care.
Outstanding - listens attentively, focuses on the issue, diagnoses the problem, and prescribes the appropriate treatment
Friendly, thorough, keen listener; they tested my hearing on the spot too, which was an unexpected bonus.
Very thorough and I didn't feel rushed at all during my visit.
He is an excellent physician. I would highly recommend him.
I like Dr. Detelbach very much but the rest of the staff left much to be desired. No one introduced themselves even the assistant Donna that tried to work on me. Only after I asked her name and asked her what she was doing. I had to stop her to ask because I was not comfortable or confident in her since she gave me no indication or direction. Once I saw Dr. Dettelbach all my concerns were immediately taken care of. He is completely professional and I now no better than to trust his staff.
He was very capable and informative. He had my ear symptoms checked out immediately by a colleague and then returned to me afterwards with the results. However, be prepared to give your symptoms quickly and to take charge of any follow up. Also, it was hard to grasp all the directions he gave out very quickly. Overall, I was satisfied with the visit.
Efficient,knowledgeable, easy to converse with. Confident that I received the best "fix" for my impairment.
Talented good ENT.
Excellent doctor. Very organized practice. Top marks.
prompt, focused on my concerns, immediately evaluated vocal cords with scope, along with diagnosis ansd treatment recommendation
He already knew my condition. He was able quickly to plan a rational approach. I will feel comfortable calling him if things don't go as expected.
Excellent Doctor. Has twice taken care of my problem very well.
Thoughtful, pleasant, thorough.
Very professional, helpful, and dealt with the problem under examination.
Good bedside manner.
Very personable, relatively on time, attentive and listened well. Provided an analysis of symptoms and a plan to fix the problem.
He was very attentive and paid attention when I described my symptoms. He did tests on the spot to determine what was ailing me, and didn't make me set up another appointment to do those, which is very nice. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT doctor.
He is very good at what he does. I credit him for saving my hearing, and acting immediately to order the testing and put me on the type of drugs I needed.
Dr. Dettelbach is excellent, cleared my ears immediately and referred me to the Audiologist. Dr. Dettelbach discussed your problem, what you can do better and explains what he is going to do. f
Nurses (could've been PAs) and staff are friendly and helpful. Unlike many other doctors, Dr. Dettelbach did not rush through the exam, and he took time to answer my questions.
It was quick but I felt that he exhausted all possibilities for me.
I was very impressed. Dr. Dettelbach, as anyone can tell from his resume, is well trained and highly intellegent. As a practitioner, he is thoughtful, took time to ask several questions, listened to my questions,and made skillful use of a nasopharyngoscope without causing any discomfort.
Pleasant, professional,and courtesy! Overall an excellent experience with every visit!!!
Dr. Dettelbach is friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. I suffer badly from Menieres disease and he is one of the few doctors in the area who has taken time with me and not immediately pursued a surgical option.
Great initial visit.
Professional and efficient...the way doctors should be
Very pleasant and nice, asked the right questions and listened to me about the problems I was having. Appointment was quick, but I still was happy with the service I received. Office staff was professional and I only had to wait about 10 minutes.
Dr. Dettelbach has taken very good care of me. He's knowledgable, courteous friendly and efficient.
Highly personable doctor, great with kids. He put tubes in my daughter's ears after she struggled through numerous infections. Can't recommend him enough.
The office tends to run a little late, but in this case, it was justified-some little kid had some foreign object stuck in his ear, and it was a multi-doctor effort to remove it, haha. I've been going to Dr. Dettelbach for over 10 years now, and he's great-he works with all of my health concerns, and is good about recommendations to other doctors when necessary-he's good at diagnosing, and also does not dismiss my thoughts on my health, which is important.
I was very pleased with my visit. There was no wait time and the doctor was very helpful and listened to my issues.
