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.

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.

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.

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.
