My appt was 10:15AM, but I waited until 10:47AM. The receptionist said she called me while I was out in the lobby, but I did ask her to call my cell but she said she didn't know my hand gesture? Dr.Davis was attentive and listens by inputing notes into his laptop. He also explains what he thinks my illness was although I was there to ask for ear tube insertion surgery. I didn't understand when he told me to schedule appt with a dentist for ear pressure and hearing tests? Perhaps I didn't understand why and couldn't speak due to heavy nasal congestions that interferes with my speaking mechanism. I should've written down my questions if i feel being hindered by nasal congestoins while speaking.

I found Dr. Davis to have a very pleasant bedside manner. He made suggestions to address my medical condition and he was clear about how and when to follow up with him. He also made reference to one of the questionson the Intake paperwork which indicated to me that he actually read it.

He has a capable staff who performed their tasks in a professional and competent manner. I still have some testing to be done before a diagnosis can be identified. In the meanwhile he has suggested a few things that might relieve the symptoms.

Waited almost an hour before seeing the doctor. The reason for the long wait was due to a power outage the day before that caused a problem with their computer systems. Receptionist should have informed me when I arrived that thereback logged and that the wait would be longer than usual.

Dr. Davis and his staff were fantastic in every respect. Actually, I had booked another recommended ENT in the same area, first. After being forced to wait in the other doc's waiting room for 50 minutes on the first appointment, Iwent to the desk and canceled the appointment. Dr. Davis saw me within 5 minutes of arrival in his office ... analyzed my issue ... provided a course of treatment and reassurance that my issue would be taken care of. If you have choice ... make the right choice.

I brought both of my parents (90yrs old) to Dr. Davis for a routine ear cleaning. Dr. Davis was exceptionally professional, gentle, pleasant and simply very kind with my parents. Both of my parents said he was the best "ear doctor"they've been to for this somewhat uncomfortable procedure. We will definitely return to Dr.Davis.
