Dr Kushnick took his time to diagnose the pain I had in my ear, answered my questions and kept me comfortable and relaxed (with humor) when doing the small procedure i needed to have. Since it was my first time, I asked one of his staff if the wait is always that long. She apologized and told me there had been some emergency appointments.

The doctor was great. His support team left a ton to be desired. In general, they were rude, spoke poorly about patients in public, did nothing to manage the front desk and seemed indignant when patients asked about the delay. I waited 1.5 hours to see the doctor and received no apology or explanation. Such a shame that such a good doctor is so poorly represented.

This doctor seems very knowledgeable, but I waited 2 hours to see him for 10 minutes! then was told I have to call back and make an appointment for another test because the audiologist went home. If I was seen on time I could have done it all in one day. Also, if I hadn't badgered him with questions I don't think I would have understood what he was talking about. All in the meantime, I'm concerned I may have permanent hearing damage.

I felt a bit rushed by Dr. Kushnick. I have had an on going problem and I have seen several doctors and he wasn't able to talk to him about my concerns without him cutting me off. The other issue i had was he was very heavy handed with me when he was examining my ears and nose. He used a numbing spray but it was still really intense. All in all i probably would not recommend Dr. Kushnick. His bedside manner was fair, but the wait was 1hr+ and then i didn't feel like he really listened to me.

After I waited for over an hour, Dr Kushnick finally saw me but the appointment was extremely rushed and he finished the appointment in less than five minutes. I had to get ear wax removed as per my audiologist, but he disregarded that, said I was fine, and rushed me out the door.

Dr. Kushnick was very pleasant. He was knowledgeable, attentive, and seemed to care about his patients' well being. The office staff were very pleasant. However there was no soap by the sinks. There was plenty of anti-bacterial gel, but there was NO SOAP even in the BATHROOMS and EXAM ROOMS. I mentioned it to someone, and they said that the cleaning staff had removed the paper towels and soap after patients put paper towels in the toilet instead of the garbage. I mentioned it to the doctor. He seemed surprised and said he'd bring some in himself. All of his instruments seemed properly cleaned and sanitized, but an ENT's office ought to eagerly strive for excellent hand hygiene of all its staff. I did not go back. I certainly would have if the soap thing hadn't turned me off. I hope they have since dealt with this issue.

The hospital looked like something out of a horror movie. The waiting room was even worse. The rude woman at the front desk had the same answer to every question that I asked: "I don't know" (but picture it being said in a nasty tone of voice). My appointment was at 4pm and I didn't get seen until 5:15pm. Why do they even take appointments? They should just say "come in and put your name at the bottom of a long list of people and wait in a dirty sweaty waiting room and maybe you'll get seen". The doctor: He did have a very nice demeanor, but I was disappointed with the treatment I received. He looked inside my ear and said it looked "perfect" after I explained to him that I've had on and off infections and swelling for months. After I insisted that there was definitely something wrong with my ear, he told me to take decongestants. I'm not a doctor, but I had a feeling that they might interfere with another medication I was taking (this medication was clearly listed on the chart I filled out). Low and behold, I found out through the internet and through other doctors, that decongestants do in fact interfere with my medication. It's a good thing I did my own research and asked for a second opinion or I may have been at risk for a heart attack or seizure. Thanks, doc.

Dr. Kushnick was helpful and has good bedside manner, but I was left to wait more than two hours because they were backlogged from having had an emergency earlier in the day. No one at front desk communicated that with me and I had to keep asking when my turn would be, without receiving an answer.
