Verified Patient Reviews
I appreciate Dr. Landers approach and his care. I've seen him a few times over the last 13 years, and each time I'm able to quickly book an appointment, have a very short wait in the waiting room, and receive quality care each time. Highly recommend for ear, nose, and throat issues.
A real professional. He is frank, asks good questions, and caring.
I would give negative stars if I could! I feel mishandled. As others have stated, rude, condescending and had no clue what was wrong but knew enough to tell me not to worry about it. The attitude and shoulder shrugs and why are you here vibe made my blood boil!! And yes he left the door open on me too while I’m discussing my issue. Shot numbing pain down my nose without warning or any discussion of what I should expect. How in the heck is he on D Magazine?! Just terrible!! That’s why I didn’t have to wait long to be seen, no patients!
Great! Will go back when I have the same problem!
He was very condensing, rude and displayed mockery. Upon handing me my diagnosis papers, he tossed them at me. RUDE. He said my ears were fine, could not explain the sharp pain at all. His response was "I don't know why you have pain" with a shrug. Then began asking me about my job, in which I work for a health insurance company and asked does the company give their employees their insurance and then stated Obamacare, which i corrected him to ACA. DO NOT GO HERE. RUDE! He told me to clean my ears with Q-Tips. Anyone will tell you NOT to use it. He doesn't listen, and seemed annoyed. Now I see why he had so many available appointments. Don't waste your time.
Great doctor. Very kind and listenes to my concerns. Almost no wait time in office.
Dr. Landers comes across as old-school & no nonsense. He was thorough, asked a lot of questions and listened and I was satisfied with his treatment plan.
I had to ask multiple questions to understand regarding the issues I was facing. The doctor wasn't proactive in explaining the issues to me. He acted like a seasoned professional with "attitude".
Very professional and knowledgeable
Dr Landers was great. He seemed very knowledgeable and was easy to talk to, took his time and asked me questions instead of assuming things. Would definitely visit again.
Glad I went to see Dr. Landers. He was very encouraging and supportive; took an interest and spent time listening and questioning me.
The ZOCDOC you are a wonderful team. You have a positive and purposeful follow-up. I am proud to be a very honest patient who;s contribution to your efforts is going to change the way the medical field will be. First I recall when you said what happened when I tried to set an appointed? Think I found the answers. The front office told me that they don't take insurance with a HMO but PPO. I told them I would foot the bill. As soon as i disclosed to Doctor my infection condition, he said he cannot help me. Is this professional or something. So selective treatment and so why run the medical field like that. We want you to be our voice.
Dr Landers was wonderful! He listened patiently to my concerns and was very thorough with my exam. I would highly recommend Dr Landers to anyone!
He was great. Asked a lot of questions to make sure they support his diagnosis.
He is without a doubt knowledgeable and experienced, but a challenging communication style. A bit condescending, abrupt, not a warm and fuzzy at all. If you are able to put that aside I trust you are in good hands, but will have to overlook the personality.
He comes off a little mean, maybe even rude but I don't think he means anything by it. A very very good doctor who knows his profession like the back of his hand
Dr. Landers pretty much saved my husband from a miserable 4-day Thanksgiving. He was in a lot of pain and I would have had to take him to the emergency room if I hadn't found ZocDoc and been able to get an appointment with Dr. Landers. The doctor was extremely sympathetic and professional. He explained everything clearly and knew exactly how to help. I highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you, Dr. Landers, for saving our Thanksgiving!!!
My visit was rather uncomfortable since the moment they called my name. Very rude, didnt let me fully explain any details of my symptoms, flew pass everything and didnt seem to want to listen. My fiance also felt the same vibe. It was a long drive and waste of my time. Only thing I can say is thanks for the prescription but I didnt feel welcomed one bit.
Dr. Landers was courteous, to the point, and thorough. He made sure I understood my diagnosis and recommended a treatment plan I was comfortable with. Knowledgeable and friendly. Great visit. Great doctor.
Knowledgable, yes; but finding a good doctor is much more than knowledge alone! He seemed short in patience, abrupt in his demeanor, didn't want to hear from me, his client! I did not reschedule a follow-up visit for those main reasons! Sought a different ENT specialist.
He was nice, down to earth, took interest and attentive to my needs.
Very professional and personable
It was really good, with high professional manner. I get the complete answers for all my questions. Thank you.
Very professional and knowledgeable
Very friendly. Thorough.
Friendly and informative
Was not happy with his bedside manner.
Very professional and efficient.
Dr Lander is very attentive!
Very nice and was willing to explain everything thoroughly.
Dr. Landers was one of my first doctors appointments since I moved out of my parents home. I was definitely nervous. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised! Dr. Landers was both personable and knowledgeable. He made me feel extremely comfortable, gave an accurate diagnosis. He also provided me with extra information about my diagnosis. My nose is already feeling better. I can't say enough good things about my experience with him! I highly recommend Dr. Landers to everyone!
Great visit, would recommend to family members.
he spent good amount of time with me explaining all the pros and cons for the treatment i need to undergo
Dr. Landers was wonderful. He quickly diagnosed my problem and put me on the road to feeling better. I had heard he came well recommended and now I know why. Thanks, Dr. Landers!
This was my first visit, and he did not introduce himself or greet me. He definitely does not have any bedside manner at all. Has no patient to listen.
Saw Dr Landers for a 2nd opinion. He was very courteous and answered all my questions
Dr Landers is professional efficent and very effective I would highly recommend him
He is very professional and thorough.
I've been a patient for a few years and have had two surgeries. He is very thorough and knowledgable. Both operations have gone smoothly.
Very professional, took the needed time to discuss my symptoms. Explained everything in I way that I understood.
Different thinking than I expected But in detail oriented and friendly tone Hopefully this mix helps my concerns It tastes bad enough it should?? I would recommend anyone his way
Didn't feel like I was spoken to like an adult. Want to be able to understand why and what was going on to cause the pain, when I could expect relief, etc. Instead of just walking away with medicine and no clarity.
Fast. Easy. Knowledgeable.
This guy is terrible. Had no idea what he was doing. Was a complete jerk. His technology was completely out of date. Terrible doc.
I believe that his thorough questioning may have found the answer to an acute cough from post-nasal drip I've had for almost 5 months! At least, I'm hopeful he has set me on the right track.
Horrible experience. Don't take you children there he is super rough. And rude.. From what I remember my daughter cried the whole time.
He was quick and awesome highly recommend him
It was very clean and excellent customer service
He is knowledgable and professional.
very professional and thorough, I would recommend him to my family members, thank you for your thorough exam and thoughtfulness, and seeing me as an individual not just another pair of ears
This was my first visit. Office staff was well organized and everything was processed quickly. Dr. Landers diagnosed the symtoms immediately and then provided background information that was helpful. All my questions were answered.
I was very happy with his help and explanations regarding my illness. He was thorough and explained every thing to me.
Dr. landers did a great job! He contacted me immediately with test results. He was very informative and explained the test results with care and understanding.
Fantastic office. No nonsense doc. In and out with kiddo for ear problem in less than 30 min. As new pt!
He fixed a long-standing problem ..thank you!
Wonderful calming physician. Great office.
Dr Landers is an awesome physician. Accurate, efficient and very effective. I highly recommend him
Dr Landers and his staff were courteous, professional, and efficient.
Informative. My visit for my particular inquiry only lasted around 7 minutes.
He immediately diagnosed my problem.
Everything is just as it is supposed to be.
Dr. Landers was excellent--I highly recommend him!
I'm not usually one to complain, but I feel like I should warn someone! I booked this appointment out of desperation, and he happened to have an available appointment that same day...that should have been a hint. His staff was very pleasant and welcoming, but once I was in the patient room it was downhill. It seemed as though everytime he asked me a question and I tried to answer to my best ability, he had questioned my answers, like they weren't good enough, and he would belittle my response and try to correct me. Then I made the mistake of mentioning what my OB had "speculated" on some masses on my neck and he just started yelling "WRONG! WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!" He started to lean the exam chair back and before I knew it, OUCH! He'd poked my ear and HURT me, no head's up! I figured my wincing would tip him off on my pain, but he proceeded to do the same to the other ear. It's been a couple of weeks and my ears are still a bit sore. Just when I thought it couldn't get worse, he started searching diagnosis after diagnosis online, the most random things that seemed to be pulled out of thin air, and printing packets for me to take home. As a going away gift, he prescribed drugs for migraines and sent me on my way. I just got home from my visit with a different, GREAT ENT and I am due for a CT scan and bloodwork to analyze the masses in my neck (something Dr. Landers refused to even acknowledge). Do yourself a favor...find someone else, even if it does take longer to get in to see them.
After reading a couple of reviews that he had poor bedside manner, I expected a cold and grumpy doctor visit. However, I found him to be very professional and seemed friendly and pleasant enough. I preferred his professionalism and I appreciated his straightforward approach to my medical need. I've found a great new doctor and surgeon for all my future ENT needs. Very satisfied!
Great doctor ! Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly !
I was very pleased with his professional manner and the way he made me feel important as a patient. I would definitely recommend him to a friend or family member.
I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Landers.
Dr. Landers provided excellent information and explained everything in a wonderful conversational tone. He answered all of my questions thoughtfully and offered a thorough exam. I have already recommended him to family and friends!
HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! Before seeing Dr. Landers had called in and I was given a quote for a consultation fee which seemed reasonable. I went into see Dr. Landers for about 10 minutes in total. He performed a Laryngscopy in which he took a quick glance at my ear nose and throat. It took no longer than a few minutes and I assumed that the Laryngscopy was part of the sizable office consultation fee. I was shocked when I received a bill from the office. He charged me 3 times the initial fee for this two minute inspection which I assumed was what I was paying for with my initial fee. I called to speak with the receptionist at which point she began raising her voice with me and insulting me. I know that diagnostics cost more money and was cognizant not to consent to perform anything that would cost me extra. Had Dr. Landers been up front with the pricing I never would have agreed. I feel highly infringed upon, and feel that this practice conducts itself in a highly unethical and seedy manner.
He was really nice and sociable!
I had an amazing experience with Dr. Landers. He took his time with me and made me feel like I was his only patient. He took the time to get to know me on a personal level and fully explained everything to me. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
He was very helpful and solved my issue quickly!
So far do good.
GREAT - THANK YOU!!
This is my first visit and it's been a very pleasant one!
Excellent, quick in/out
I highly regard Dr. Landers and his care of me. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and conscientious. I have referred many patients to him, and they are very satisfied with his care and treatment of them, as am I.
Dr.Landers is a wonderful physician! He is very professional and punctual. I have taken my two daughters to see him and wouldn't go to another ENT, even though it's a 30 minute drive for me.
Very knowledgeable and personable. Made me feel at ease and answered and explained all my questions thoroughly!
Dr. Landers is a competent doctor and knows what he is doing. He took care of my minor hearing problem without wasting time.
Very nice experience
Very professional staff and physian
I had severe strep throat that and a previous doc-in-a-box didn't give me the right meds to clear it before it created an abscessed tonsil. Dr. Landers got it cleared up and helped advice me about getting it lanced. We kept an eye on it and luckily I didn't have to undergo that terrifying procedure.
Dr. Landers was coarse on courtesy and aggressive in application. Dr. Landers could learn to be more tactful and cordial to his patients. He seemed demeaning when I brought up snoring issues, as if intimating that I only brought my wife out of pure selfishness. We informed him of other issues that we needed addressed, not just snoring. Finally, he shoved an instrument up my easy going, timid wife's nose and sprayed a fluid that made her have a light panic attack due to the feeling of not feeling her breathing. The problem with this approach was that he did not warn her to be prepared for the reaction and prodded her with a wooden stick to open her mouth. As my wife struggled to breath, Dr. Landers could care less. I interrupted him to inform him that my wife is having trouble breathing and he instructed her to remain calm and that 3 year old kids are just as capable of coping with the same prodding. I almost lost my composure with Dr. Landers, but I feel becoming negative is not good for anybody. I would only recommend that people who are providing medical services use all necessary energy and judgement to be warm and compassionate in dispensing information and performing diagnosis.
I was the first patient of the day and the wait seemed a little longer than I thought it would be. But once he started evaluating why I was there and running his own tests I was happy to hear his assessment. He also taught me some things.
I thought Dr. Landers was very nice, informative and he put me at ease. The office had a very laid back vibe and the staff was very nice.
He truly is the best ENT I have ever had.
Some people like a direct, dry approach. I prefer sympathy when addressing my health concerns. This is why I rate the beside manner so low :(
I could tell he did not have a passion for the symptoms I was having. I do not feel he listened to my concerns.
Great doctor. Knowledgable. Thorough. Compassionate.
Dr. Landers and his staff were very professional. I was really pleased with his promtness with seeing my son and getting us in and out in a timely matter instead of having us waiting for hours.
Dr. Landers provided excellent care. Always he was very knowledgeable not only about my ENT problems but associated conditions as well. I was very impressed.
Dr. Landers is very professional. Patient, but direct and to the point. I highly recommend.
He's excellent. Very direct and detailed.
I go to a lot of docs - he is nice and takes time to diagnose you and provide the best solution. I didn't particularly like how he kept doing things without telling me ahead of time what he was going to do. for example he gave me two kleenex AND THEN sprayed something on my nose. Like "SURPRISE!" ... it would have been nice if he had communicated the steps to the patient rather than just doing it. But he's a nice guy; hopefully he can tell things to me beforehand next time.
Very good experience.
Great physician, made me laugh and made sure all my questions were answered before leaving. Highly recommend !
Great visit - I would highly recommend Dr. Landers.
He is professional, thorough, and the BEST ENT doctor I have been to in the DFW area.
very professional, to the point
At first he seems like a mean doctor. He was the second doctor to see for the same problem. But He got it right on the spot. In three days, He make me a healthy person. He did not even charge me for my second visit. He need to fix his first impression on patients. I recommend him for ENT 100%.
I am a "regular" patient of Dr. Landers as I have recurring ear infections. He sees me when I need to be seen and is polite and professional. He has successfully treated my ears, but it is painful nonetheless, so I can honestly say that I do not look forward to seeing him!!!
Great physician! Timely and effective professional with a friendly office staff
Dr. Landers was very nice and seemed very competent. He asks questions and allows you to answer. I felt like I was in very good hands. Dr. Landers will be my new choice for an ENT doctor.
he is knowledgable experienced ENT Doctor. my ears were clogged since 10 days and he just treat em and i got releif in minutes.
I liked Dr. Landers, thought him very professional and informative.
very good. He took of my problem in a short time.
I actually drove an hour to come see him, but he exceeded my expectations! He truly knows what he's doing and listens to everything you're telling him with your concerns. I would make the drive again!
He was friendly and business-like also. Thought he helped me a lot.
He is very professional and knows his business.
Excellent! Profession, yet warm and friendly. Would be happy to go back to him again
I really liked him.
Finally found an ENT who took the time to inquire about the health issues I've had in the past to narrow down the diagnostic and the proper treatment. I'm really glad I chose his medical services.
He was very knowledgable and experienced.
Straight forward doctor, at first a little too serious, but turned out to be a very good doctor. Would definitely recommend
Very good visit, highly appreciate his insight and helpfulness. Thank you.
my appointment was at 8:00 the office didn't even open unitl 8:20. after paperwork i got in at about 8:30. Doctor wasnt really nice, didnt listen. a random nurse kept walking in during my visit to ask about other stuff. i wont be returning.
It was an interedting experience.
Excellent Doctor. I would have wished I had gone to him long time ago.
I arrived early and was seen early. Perfect!
Although the news my husband received at his appointment was devastating, it was delivered in an honest, professional manner. Dr. Landers quickly provided us with the next steps to take to determine a full diagnosis and treatment options.
I am away from home in NJ and visiting my daughter in Dallas. I wanted a 2nd opinion for a clicking noise on the left side of my throat. He concurred with my Dr at home that no further action needed to be taken at this time, BUT.......I appreciated him taking the time to explain the problem to me and showing my daughter on the scope monitor so that we both understoood. Thank you.
The best ENT doctor I have ever seen!
It was an excellent visit. Very courteous staff - even though it was a new doctor for me, I felt very comfortable. Dr. Landers is my new ENT doctor.
Nothing to add. He appeared very knowledgable and personable.
Dr Landers listens to his patients, understands what the issue is before sending you away, and is very professional. I would recommend him to anyone!
He is wonderful. Very thorough. Patient and answered all my questions...and I asked a lot! He actually took the time to make sure I understood what he found. I will recommend him many times over.
Dr. Landers is a no nonsense, direct spoken physician - extremely knowledgeable in his field, very practical in his approach and pricing of his services. Super staff keeps the ball rolling.
Didn't even bother to read my notes from zocdoc. What's the point of this feature if doctors won't read tr comments?
He listened to my concern, he assisted in finding an imaging center near my home and affordable, and he resolved my problem and put my mind at ease. Not bad, huh? Thanks, Doc!
Nice bed side manner, fun sense of humor and listens to your concerns.
Very knowledgable but condescending at times.
He is great and helped me tremendously.
Dr Landers is on target with his diagnoses. Gives great handouts with further explanations of malady.
This was my first visit Dr. Landers was very attentive with my needs and seems to be very direct, and very helpful. I enjoyed the visit.
Dr. Landers was very kind to my mother, who has Alzheimer's and has lost most of her hearing. He took the time needed to evaluate her hearing condition, recommend a treatment plan and engage her in conversation to determine her mental/hearing aptitude. I was very pleased with our appointment and would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs his specialty. Very friendly!
The appt was excellent. Dr very professional and answered all my questions, even helped me with questions about the elderly since I am my mothers caretaker. I would refer him to any friend.
I have a simple condition that impacts older adults. A simple exercise for about 7 days, twice a day and I'm fine. He also found something another dr didn't see. . .Very wise and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone serious about their health and medical care.
Staff and Doctor were pleasant and professional.
Dr. Landers knows is an excellent doctor. Be prepared to answer his questions exactly and be brief and to the point.
The doctor took time to explain everything in a wonderful manner. He was very calm yet informative. Certainly a doctor I'd recommend for an ENT specialist
Doctor seemed preoccupied and not very friendly.
He was helpful with a minor emergency, but I will most likely find someone else if I require anything additional. He and I just didn't "click". I didn't think he took the time to listen to me, but rather preferred to listen to himself talk.
Professional, thorough, am pleased with Dr. Landers and Staff
Great doctor he gets to the diagnosis very fast.
AS ALWAYS>>>>ANSWERED ALL QUESTIONS AND GAVE ME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS TO TRY
Excellent doctor. I would highly recommend. I got a second opinion from him and I'm happy with his recommendation and his diagnosis.
Excellent. Got right to the bottom of my (very complicated) issue.
Dr. Landers is nicely patient, which did make me comfortable to have a talk with him.
Dr Landers was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I actually enjoyed a visit I had been dreading.
Dr. Landers was very professional and thorough in his examination. He diagnosed my problem and relieved my concerns regarding my neck. I would definately recommend Dr. Landers to anyone needing ear, nose or throat exam.
Not my first visit with Dr. Landers. I depend on him for care in his specialty.
I liked him 15 years ago and I like him now. He seems very good at what he does. He did mastoid surgery then and cured my vertigo. He saw a very specific need and recommended another doctor this visit.
I was very happy with my appointment with Dr. Landers. He took the time to go over my history and was able to perform diagnostic procedures in office.
Doctor Landers has my recommendation as an excellent ENT.
Absolutely first class professional, that is extremely bright!
Dr. Landers is a great listener and he asks good questions. He is candid and refreshing. The visit was very helpful. I really liked using zocdoc to make the appointment.
