It was FAST. I wasn’t confident Dr. Bane did a thorough enough evaluation. I was not introduced to the audiologist, spent no time with him/her personally. My child was seen by the audiologist for maybe 5 minutes. I have no idea what kind of testing they did on my child. I didn’t have opportunity to think of, let alone ask questions of Dr. Bane. My head was spinning when I left wondering what had just happened.

He was very nice, very good with my 2 year old daughter. He came right in and started talking to me about tubes for my daughters ears, he didnt brush me off and tell me "she hasnt had enough ear infections" like her primary doctor told me. He took the time to listen to my concerns and do something about the problem. I highly recommend Dr. Bane.

This was my 7 year old son's first appointment with Dr. Bane and it went really well. My son is generally afraid of new doctor's, especially since he knew we were going to see Dr. Bane for an assessment to see if he needs to have tubes put in his ears, but the entire office staff was so kind and friendly that he wasn't scared at all! Dr. Bane was very professional and kind. He also has is very friendly dog named Maggie, in the office, and she is such a sweetheart. I have never seen a calmer dog in my life and my son absolutely loved her so much! He has a lot of fun when Dr. Bane allowed him to give Maggie a treat and have her shake my son's hand!

Excellent ENT - we've been going to see Dr Bane for years! Not only does he take the time to break down medical jargon to something I can digest, but his practice's follow through is top notch. Many years ago, Dr Bane suggested a tonsillectomy to remedy strep throat which I frequently feel victim to. 10 years later and I haven't had strep again - thanks again, Dr Bane!

I found the Dr. very pleasant and examined me right away. He found nothing ans sent me in to see the audiologist. Was very pleased with her and she found a problem with my hearing aid. Saved me a lot of time, by not having to go to where I bought them at. It was easily fixed and she showed my husband what to do, if it happened again. So glad we went there first, rather than someone else charging us a lot of money, for just a small easy task. We weren't even aware of this part of the hearing aid, and was never told by the people we bought it from.Ask question if you get a hearing aid anywhere!

Our diagnosis was much simpler than we thought. We needed only an ear flush. We were done in less than five minutes. Reviewing our paperwork took longer than the actual treatment (I take full responsibility for that). Everyone was friendly and professional. If we ever need an ENT again, we will visit Dr. Bane.

Unfortunately Dr. Bane spent 3 minutes with me; he got s phone call, called in an antibiotic but I have no idea why. My throat has been sore since Dec, I want to know why or what the problem is. I just got off antibiotics and my throat still hurts, why take them again? Is there a doctor that cares enough to spend time with a patient to resolve their illness?

Dr. Bane is an excellent clinician. His staff is friendly and professional. My daughter needed surgery for the removal of her tonsils. They were able to schedule her for surgery in a timely manner. The office manger explained the financials and pre/post op instructions clearly. Dr. Bane made my daughter feel comfortable during surgery day. The staff followed up by phone afterwards. We were very pleased with the level of care from Dr. Bane and his staff.

As a previous patient, I knew I was in great hands, however, the appointment was for my son! Not only was Dr. Bane kind and engaging, so was the audiologist. Her disposition was amazing and ideal for a 21 month old. My son was a bit agitated when the audiology exam began, but she was able to keep him calm, while also interacting with him. The exam went successfully without any hiccups!

Dr. Bane was great, excellent attitude, friendly and very knowledgeable and listen to us patiently - we were impressed. In fact we were so concerned all day long for our daughter's health and I was guessing that her throat might operated... but I was wrong and advised that it was normal. When I heard we were so relieved. Thank you Dr. Bane... God bless!

The doctor was professional, polite and made what seems to be a correct diagnosis of the problem. The nurse practitioner was helpful and professional. What did disturb me though was the brevity of the appointment. My blood pressure and temperature was not checked nor for a first time visit was a background check up made up of my overall Ear, Nose and Throat health. The most painful problem was waiting in the waiting room. Many of the other patients or family members were restless or uncontrollable. Parents of some did nothing useful to control their children. (One couple with three children were exemplary at taking care of their children and were courteous to the other). I was concerned about picking up some other problem in the closed quarters

My sons first visit with Dr. Bane. Check in went smoothly. Waiting room was full but went surprisingly quickly. Appt. time was 11:30am and we were called back about 12 minutes late. Dr. Bane was in quickly, introduced himself, verified the background and reason for visit and promptly began procedure. My son was very happy. I gave 4 stars because my sons previous ENTwas very meticulous using higher tech equipment while cleaning my son's ears and would take an average of 15 minutes to do so. While Dr. Bane successfully removed debris, I have a feeling a more intensive treatment would have been more beneficial to my son. However, that being said my son was thrilled that he could hear so much better with his hearing aides!
