I had a bad experience. I went to remove wax from my ears . I onderwent to this procedure before with other doctors and I never experienced the sensation I felt with this doctor. In addition, after the procedure I feltworst. He refered me to an audiologist but told me that he never received a report from them. I don’t understand how and ENT does not have a good audiologist to refer. Now I need to go to another doctor to help me with the problem this doctor caused me. In addition, when he was removing the wax a bad smell came from the equipment because they did not clean the wax from previous patients.

Great doctor. Very helpful and attentive. Did a lot of tests and asked lots of history questions to help me solve my problem. Would go see him again.

One of the worst appointments I've ever had. I waited for more than 1.5 hours to see the doctor. The doctor told me an off-color joke ("the cure for a snoring problem is to smack your wife," or something like that--Iwas so desperate to leave that I actually chuckled along with it). And he threw in a curse word, apropros of nothing. So to sum up, from beginning to end this was a terrible experience and I would not recommend this office to anyone else.

I would expect an ENT Dr would be able to do ear testing. I guess not. Maybe only surgery.

I liked him. He's communicative and direct. Nothing remarkably bad to say, which is refreshing. Office is a little chaotic, but on balance the admin staff are nice.
