I felt that Dr. Dettelbach dismissed my symptoms and although he treated me with respect, I felt like he really couldn't have cared less about finding the cause of my issues. He was quick to jump on any response he came up with off the cuff. For instance when I told him about not being able to exhale through my nose and it was particularly disturbing while I am in the dentist chair, his response was to "breathe through your mouth." Really? And get water and particles into my lungs? In addition, he did not review my record prior to seeing me and had no idea what my other diagnoses were, and so told me to "stay on my GERD medication" even though I have been on medication for 25 years or more and am seen by a gastroenterologist. He needs to learn to listen to his patients before jumping in with diagnoses.

Dr. Dettelbach is the best. I have never had to wait for him and his office is very efficient. He and all of the staff are top notch and very easy to work with. I can't recommend him and this office enough. The office is an easy 2 block walk from the Friendship Heights Metro. If you need a good ENT, you won't be sorry by seeing him.

Polite and welcoming staff, all very efficient. Clean and well-located office (parking not good, though, and very pricey). Dr Dettelbach and staff are all very professional and pleasant and accommodating. One big BUT: could not reach office directly on multiple tries to confirm some information needed OR to tell them we were running late due to some traffic issues. Went into endless HOLD loop with no one ever answering (during business hours)...FRUSTRATING!

While he appears competent and knowledgeable, the office felt like a factory. Different people did each test and when he came in it felt very rushed. Also, his listening skills are lacking; he asked me several times about something I had said previously.

I booked the appt through zocdoc for 9:40 am. I received a call from the office asking more details for the appointment for my son. Then I was told that 9:40 wasn't available. They person did get me booked for 9:10, I just asked I signed up for 9:40 why can't I keep that appointment. I was just told 9:40 isn't available, not big deal but it just amplifies the terrible service from the Dr. Another arrogant doctor that didn't listen to me and just said put my son on antibiotics. He also wouldn't answer any of my questions. Couldn't really explain or tell me what he was seeing going on with my infant son.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Dettelbach. He was prompt, kind, non-judgemental, and offered several potential treatment options, from least to most invasive--openly discussing the pros/cons of each so I could make an informed decision on my own time/terms. I will definitely go back to see him for any/all follow-ups.
