Verified Patient Reviews
I have been coming to Dr. Fyfe for many years as well as many of my family members. Always courteous, professional and a great bedside manner! Office staff is great as well. I recommend folks to his practice all the time. Try him, you'll be glad you did.
Great staff and facility, very friendly and professional.
I felt that his behavior was inappropriate, he said some strange things to me. As a young female I would not recommend going there.
Dr Fyfe and the rest of the staff made me feel very comfortable. I have been suffering with vertigo for months. Rather than coming to a quick conclusion about the cause, they took the time to listen to my particular case. I have confidence in their genuine desire to care for my health.
Excellent, he made it a point to explain somethings other doctors hadn't thought to or didn't take the time to explain.
Dr. Fyfe was as described in the positive reviews I read about him. My kind of doctor, professional, personable and not rushed. Highly recommended.
Outstanding, answered all my questions!!! Very professional.
We liked Dr. Fyfe! After a thorough exam, he recommended a wait-and-see approach for my son's situation instead of jumping right into antibiotics or other medication. We'll follow up in a month if there's no improvement and see how things go then.
Excellent bedside manner. Saw him for a condition that could have proven serious and it was handled with sensitivity. Very kind. Staff generally was also very nice, thought Dr. Fyfe in particular. Wait was reasonable -- 10-15 minutes at most (beyond scheduled time).
Starting with their website, I was able to fill out all the paperwork online so I didn't have to fill it out after I got to the office. Every staff member I encountered were very pleasant, nice and professional. I got the feeling everyone really wanted to be there. Everything was well organized and easy, they explained everything they were doing and why. The doctor even explained my treatment options, pros and cons of each and what he would do if it were him. I was so impressed with the service I received at their office I am trusting Dr Fyfe's recommendation for a new GP. Great experience!
He was very professional and genuinely cared about my diagnosis. His staff was proficient and I felt confident in their care.
Dr. Fyfe is a great professional
I had a bad experience with my appointment at Dr. Fyfe's office. I had to wait over an hour to see the doctor. Some of the comments he made to me were slightly insulting. He also did not thoroughly explain a procedure he recommended to me. Considering how long I had to wait for my appointment, he seemed very rushed when he saw me. Moreover, the office staff nearly over-charged me by a significant amount as I checked out, but I thankfully caught the error. Needless to say, I am confused as to why most of these reviews for Dr. Fyfe and his office are positive. I am leaning toward not returning to his office, and finding another ENT doctor instead.
Fabulous, efficient office; personable personnel. Dr. Fyfe has the "bedside manner" of what we all hope for in a doctor. So very glad this practice was recommended.
Dr Fyfe was knowledgable, easy to talk to, And very professional. I would highly recommend him!!!!!
Dr. Fyfe is the best! Wonderful bedside manner and is the utmost professional.
He is grest. Friendly. Really nice. Professional. Office was great. Got a throughal hearing test. Thank you to all the great people in this office.
He was very professional, and cleaned my ears even though that wasn't why I went in for my appointment. He made sure to diagnose the problem accurately, and I felt ver comfortable throughout the entire process. Highly recommend.
Informative and to the point.
Everyone in the office was knowledgeable and courteous. I felt all my questions were answered. I would highly recommend Dr. Fyfe to anyone in need of any ENT consultation and/or treatment.
pleasant and knowledgeable , explained what was going on with my inner ear, and what needed to be done to get to the bottom of my problem,and listened to my concerns involving certain test,etc
Helpful, cordial, professional, and thoughtful. Excellent physician!
Excellent. Clear communication. Excellent audiologist. Diagnosis clear and understandable.
From start to finish, this was an excellent experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Fyfe and his very professional staff!
He is always nice and great with the kids!
Dr. Fyfe is simply the best! He always provides detailed information about any medical problem I have, and he does an excellent job of explaining treatment options. He's also the most approachable and relatable doctor I see, easing any anxiety I may have about having a doctor's appointment.
Answered all questions. Gave details. Didn't rush. He is great
Very professional. Very nice doctor, polite, understanding, thorough. Chose him because of online reviews and can say after my visit that the five stars were accurate.
He was amazing and made everything easy and painless.
He did a thorough exam and gave me a solid diagnosis. He didn't offer simple band aid answers. He told me exactly what I need to do to get healthier. I felt that he is competent and seeking the best outcomes for me. What more can you want?
I appreciated that Dr Fyfe took his time answering all of my questions in detail.
As always, he is a top Dr.
Courteous and kind staff. Very professional. Doctor Fyfe impressed me greatly with his demeanor and thoughtfulness. Strikes me as very trustworthy.
Dr. Feye is a great doctor. He knows what is wrong and tells you how you can fix it.
Dr. Fyfe and his staff are terrific. The audiologist gave me a thorough hearing test and Dr. Fyfe's knowledge and bedside manner are first rate. The staff is friendly and helpful. The explanation of my medical situation was clearly explained. I did not feel rushed and got all of Dr. Fyfe's attention instead of his laptop. Thank you! I have found my new ENT. Highly recommend.
Excellent Doctor, I loved him, gave me such HOPE for the future!
Dr. Fyfe is great!!!! Painless experience start to finish. Takes time to explain anything you ask, great personality, solved my issue and then some. Can't recommend him more!
Dr. Fyfe is fantastic with my 1-year old. He took the time to explain what needed to be done and what to expect with recovery for ear tube surgery. When I had questions the day after the surgery he got back to me very quickly, even after hours.
My 11 year old said it was his "favorite doctor appointment of all time"! :)
Dr. Fyfe and his staff were very professional and all had a great attitude and knowledge of their job!
Very personable, and curtious physician. Great sense of humor and great bedside manner.
Couldn't ask for a better, up front, doctor. I've already recommended him to friends.
Great ENT Dr. provided multiple options for me to think about.
He was great. Pleasant, explained things well, doesn't want to go overboard on recommended treatment until having all of the facts, takes a conservative approach to medicine. He came recommended to me and I would recommend him to others.
From the moment I walked into Dr. Fyfe's office I felt looked after, important and liked. The assistant who took my vitals was pleasant, good at his job and very professional. The young woman who did my testing was, again, pleasant and very professional. Dr. Fife was clear when he explained the test results and though he couldn't fix my tinnitus, I now know what it is and I will be tested yearly now that he has a baseline.
I imagine that what made my bill higher than the average doctor's visit is that he stuck a camera down my nose until I was able to see my vocal chords. He was very thorough, which I greatly appreciate - as I have not had the same from other doctors. We found that my previous deviated septum and turbinate reduction surgery (performed by a different doctor) had been not so thorough on my left nostril as the rear turbinate was still protruding quite a bit and making my air passage very narrow. Overall, it was a good visit and my needs were met.
Excellent Doctor highly recommended.
Great doctor, very helpful and knowledgable
What you would expect in an appointment. The unfortunate thing is this doctor no longer performs surgery, so I will need to find a new doctor to do that.
Speedy appointment and not very helpful. Felt like I wasted my time and will probably go to another doctor to get answers. The office was very outdated and lacked commonly used technology for blood pressure, etc
Getting the appointment was smooth. Didnt have to wait long for my turn once i was there at the clinic. Dr. Fyfe is nice and he asked about the problem and patiently listened. Overall a very good experience.
Thanks so much for seeing me today, I enjoyed meeting you. I was able get in for the CT scan this afternoon.
He's very friendly and good with kids. Nice office too.
Always fast, efficient and incredibly sweet.
Very professional yet friendly and made me feel at ease. Explained everything well.
Enjoyed talking with Dr. Fyfe today and am so glad he's on my healthcare team.
Dr Fyfe was friendly, thorough, and relieved my fears.
Just like other reviews I read, Dr. Fife was WONDERFUL. He solved in a matter of moments something that had puzzled us for two years. He was easy going and informative and warm. I highly recommend him!
He was very professional, but also down to earth. I would definitely go back if I needed an EMT again.
Excellent doctor, professional and friendly staff. I had been searching for an ENT for a while and am so glad I found reviews on Dr. Fyfe. They are very accurate. He is great! His expertise is evident and his sense of humor and friendly approach are very refreshing and appreciated. He clearly loves what he does and makes the patient feel very assured and well cared for.
Love him! His office staff is very kind and he's very attentive. He takes time to listen to you, examine and explain things to you.
Excellent Dr. great bed side manners. Took the time to explain things and show you what he was looking at.
Great, and I felt like I had time to explain my situation...
He explained everything to be understood for the patient
Excellent, as always.
Dr Fyfe is very professional, knowledgeable and great bedside manner. Would definitely recommend.
No complaints I am glad that I found him.
Dr. Fyfe is absolutely the best ENT specialist in Austin. I have been a patient since 1991 and I recommend him to everyone who is suffering ear and sinus problems.
Excellent, all the the way around.
Professional, friendly, and prompt! I would highly recommend Dr Fyfe and Allison Archer.
I was amazed at how fast we got called from the waiting room. I would guess it was less than 10 minutes. Everyone we saw including the doctor was highly professional and tried to put my 10 year old son at ease. We will probably end up having Dr. Fyfe perform surgery for my son to have his adenoids and tonsils removed. Overall I would highly recommend this practice and specifically Dr. Fyfe. He was referred to us by my pediatrician.
Clearly, a very (courteous!) professional operation!
This is doctor we have been looking for!
Dr. Fyfe really is as good as they get. He's friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. He explains everything very well, and he is always very clear with any instructions he gives for medication or further treatment. His demeanor is always one of someone who is glad to see you, which removes any anxiety I might have about going to the doctor -- and I don't like going to the doctor. He is by far my favorite doctor!
All of my visits to this office are efficient and pleasant. Dr. Fyfe is a caring doctor. The audiologist is also a competent and stellar young lady.
He's a great and personable doctor and you feel comfortable right away.
He is top notch
Smart, great bedside manner, loved that he directly addressed my concerns. I would definitely recommend him!
Very good. Would highly recommend him.
I can easily give a very strong recommendation for Dr. Fyfe and will certainly go back to see him should I have problems in the future.I felt he was very knowledgeable, as well as thorough. He took the time to explain his findings after the exam and was clear about what course of treatment he felt was best. With so much changing in health care, it is refreshing and comforting to go to a doctor with expertise in their field, and one who is friendly and caring at the same time. I think Dr. Fyfe is that kind of doctor, and I was very pleased with my visit!
I am most grateful surgery was not required but had it been, it's safe to say, I would trust him with my life.
Dr. Fyfe is so sweet and listened to all my health complaints. I will be using him from now on. Great staff too!
He's a nice guy. Was accommodating to me having my three kids there with me. Office staff is friendly. Did not try to sell me stuff I didn't need or do unnecessary procedures. I think he's a good doctor, but I felt a bit like my concerns were brushed aside with regard to a lymph node I told him about. Maybe it's just because he has seen so many, he just didn't even want me to entertain the thought of worrying about it. I'm not sure.
dr fyfe is the best ent in Austin texas in my oppinion
I went to Dr. Fyfe to get a second opinion on hearing loss and ringing in the ears. His audiologist was very thorough and explained everything I asked. Even though I am losing some of my hearing, Dr. Fyfe helped to calm my fears about the ringing and asked me to come back in 6 mths. to check hearing again. His office is modern, clean and calm and his staff were very kind. I would recommend him.
Dr Fyfe is well experienced and intuitive, concise and thorough. I saw him for an initial consult for acid reflux and related issues and feel very confident that he will make the perfect recommendations throughout my treatment.
Without discussing visit details, i'll simply say that his care is top-notch.
Dr. Fyfe was prompt, efficient and wonderful cheerful bedside manner. Very professional and easy to talk to. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone.
He is a terrific doctor and very knowledgable. A pleasure to see him always.
Dr. Fyfe is exceptional and inspires great trust. Our kids ask to go visit him after office visits.
Accurately diagnosis of my sinus issues and didn't avoid recommending that I lose weight, which I highly respect given that they are supposed to care about our health.
Really friendly and thoughtful. Spent time with me before and after answering questions. Also considered my insurance coverage in suggesting alternate treatments. Highly recommend him.
It was very smooth from beginning to end. Dr. Fyfe did a great job explaining and, more importantly, asking questions and follow up questions to the answers I provided.
Informative. Answers all concerns.
Dr Fyfe was well prepared for my visit, came up with a good plan of treatment and followup.
Other than the 30 minute wait to see the doctor, I was very satisfied with the way I was treated once I was seen. The whole team was very pleasant and made me feel at ease.
I honestly don't know what to think. He took my ENT concerns seriously which is really all I can ask for. My concerns came from his approach with my larger, complicated medical issues. I think he was trying to help. However, as I described every current avenue I'm pursuing at the direction of highly respected specialists (after 2.5+ years since onset), Dr. Fyfe told me that he didn't think they would help. Perhaps he's right. Perhaps he had only spent a combined 15 minutes with my file and me. Perhaps he could have approached this in a different way and recognized that I and my medical team are trying what we can with the hopes that something might help when nothing else has. He certainly asked few questions about my symptoms and experience. He did offer suggestions, but I still would have appreciated being treated as a whole, thinking, feeling person rather than as a collection of broken cells.
The doctor and the audiologist did a very professional and thorough exam. I would recommend Dr. Fyfe if you are looking for a good doctor.
I had a great experience. Of course, when you are looking for answers to problems you want them fixed immediately. Dr. Fyfe was realistic with expectations and samples that would last until my next appointment. Dr. Fyfe and his staff were inviting and easy to talk to. Thank you for the experience!
In and out with ease.
Dr Fyfe was very personable and attentive to my problems.
Excellent! Friendly and professional.
Great and personable.
Dr. Fyfe was very thorough and really listened to my concerns. His physician's assistant was also excellent in terms of screening me and asking questions to fully understand what brought me to the doctor's' office. Not only do I think they are effective in what they do, but I felt that they cared about my well being.
Great office staff and physician's assistant as well!
He analyzed problem quick after I answered a few questions. He was nice, direct, and efficient and I will use him from now on as our family ENT doctor.
Best ENT I have seen! Will use again in future if ever needed. Hopefully not.
It went very well.
I liked Dr. Fyfe and his office staff were friendly.
He was very pleasant and professional. The staff was also very pleasant and professional.
Very nice and personable. Highly recommended!
very good, thorough, knowledgeable doctor who clearly explains all options.
Everything went well. Information given and follow-up with testing provided immediately.
He was great!
Dr Fyfe was excellent! Very personable and explained every aspect of my treatment. I will go to Dr. Fyfe for any ENT needs in the future and would recommend him to anyone!
Was seen shortly after arriving. The nurse and doctor were very helpful and informative. Scheduled a surgery and Dr Fyfe made me feel at ease and that he was very familiar with doing the procedure.
Professional communication laced with care for my condition. Made me feel very comfortable with his ability to remove debris from my ears. Prescribed an antibiotic/steroid combination medication which after his explanation of my problem I believed to be quite appropriate. He scheduled to see me in one week. This quick follow-up time gave me even more confidence in him and his concern that my medical issues be resolved quickly.
Extremely professional, kind, educated and patient physician. I highly recommend Dr. Fyfe and his staff. Very good experience and staff. I wish I would have found him sooner!
It was great. He was very nice and listened to my needs
I've been using Dr. Fyfe for the past 20 years... I wouldn't go to any other ENT - period!
He was thorough and kind.
Dr. Fyfe and his associates are all very friendly and helpful. Going to a doctor is not something that the average person enjoys, but Dr. Fyfe's office makes it a very pleasant experience. Kudos to Dr. Fyfe and his staff.
Aside from some initial scheduling confusion due to ZocDoc, the appointment didn't leave any room for improvement.
Dr. Fyfe was very nice and seemed very knowledgeable, but I did have a couple complaints I'd like to share: 1. There doesn't seem to be much patient confidentiality because you can hear entire conversations between dr. and patient between exam rooms. While waiting for the doctor to come in to the exam room, I learned the name, weight, height, and issues the patient in the room next to me had. 2. While there, I received a hearing test. The person administering the test was very professional and seemed to know what she was doing, but the room wasn't sound proof. During the test I could hear doors closing in the hallways, doctors and nurses talking, and various other noises. It didn't affect my test results, but I'm sure others with severe hearing problems could have been affected. 3. I may very well have not had any issues with my hearing based on exam and test results, but I felt Dr. Fyfe dismissed my concerns and chalked them up to trivial issues. He didn't really take the time to ask me questions about the problems I was having or dig deeper to see if there was an underlying cause. I'm young and seemingly healthy, so I think that played a role in his dismissal of me.
Dr. Fyfe, took time to explain things to me, made me feel at ease. great doctor.
Excellent all the way around! No wait, great professional behavior and very personable! Front office and entire staff were excellent.
Very reassuring. Not rushed or frazzled. I was able to make appts. quickly---no long waits of days and days or weeks to get in to see doctor. All the staff is very polite and personable.
Five Stars & Ten!
I highly recommend for ENT related issue.
Excellent! Efficient, got to the heart of the problem, and I departed a happier person! Thanks to all.
The staff is very professional, and very personable with a great sense of humor. They brightened my day!
Overall was great!
Very nice Doctor. Easy to talk to. Actually listens to you when you talk. Is genuinely concerned with your health...AWESOME...Wish he was my primary Physician.
He and his staff were very informative... proactively, so you leave with a lot of understanding medically and financially.
What a great Doctor. Took the time to talk with me. I have all the confidence in world with this Doctor!! Very professional.
Great visit - I've found the right doctor.
Dr. Fyfe and his staff are great. They take the time to listen and really care about your well being. I highly recommend!
The visit was good because Dr. Fyfe and his staff were friendly, informative, and helpful.
Loved the method of scheduling the appointment online, very quick and efficient. The doctor, Dr. Fyfe was great, direct and honest. Excellent manner in procedure, works with patience and ease. Sean the nurse was great as well.
I thought he was very thorough and very informative.
He answered all my questions in a thoughtful and confident manner. Excellent doctor's visit. Highly recommend.
Outstanding as usual.
Dr. Fyfe was very straightforward and so friendly to speak to. He's very intelligent and will use pictures to describe to you how to better take care of yourself and the science behind it. By far the most thorough ENT I have ever been to, I felt very well taken care of.
The doctor and his staff were all very friendly and professional.
Dr. Fyfe makes scheduling easy, especially for me since I live in Cedar Park and work downtown Austin; my choices are easy to make depending on my location and availability.
He's a great clinician. Very professional and great at his job. His audiologist is very knowledgable and polite. Thank you for the great service.
Dr Fyfe is thorough in his examination and listens to his patients. He has been able to even diagnose some things for me that weren't even exactly part of his field during my visits. His office staff is friendly, accommodating and polite. Appointments are easy to obtain in a reasonable amount of time, he has several locations and he takes a varieties of insurances. He truly is one of the last doctors that cares and diagnoses and doesn't just treat symptoms as others that I've seen do. I can see why he has been called a super doctor and has been awarded that title year after year. I highly recommend him!!
If you need to see an ENT specialist for an illness, or even surgery like my girlfriend ; look no further than Dr. Fyfe where you will be treated like a person, not a number. His staff and nurse are very personable and the office setting laid back and comfortable.
Friendly greeting upon arrival. Waited only 5 minutes before being called in to see the audiologist. Was seeing Dr. Fyfe 5 minutes after leaving the audiologist. Entire visit was less than 40 minutes. Audiologist, nurse and doctor were very friendly and communicative. Excellent experience!
He's very thorough and knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time going through my history and answering my questions. I work with doctors, and always notice when a really special one comes along. I will definitely recommend him. Same for his staff. Very friendly and helpful!
Excellent bedside manner and very knowledgeable. Friendly staff and professional office space.
Visits with Dr. Fyfe are always positive. His staff is very professional, and the quality of care he provides is excellent.
Great first visit. He was a very personable doctor and was extremely professional. I felt like he really cared about me and my well being.
Great guy very friendly and as far as I know did a great job.
Fantastic visit, everything was explain to my understanding. Hope he is around forever. Many thanks for everything to the doctor and his staff
He was very professional, and examined my sinus region. He explained that I was normal and did not net further treatment. He was very clear and straight forward about my particular condition. He invited me to come in again if I had any problem.
Dr. Fyfe was attentive and answered the questions that I had regarding my sinus problem.
He was very knowledgeable and helped me with my problem great doc
