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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.
