    Dr. Bard has put in ear tubes in by daughter's 3 times, has done a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy on both my daughter and my son. He is the best doctor there is. His bedside manner is excellent after getting to know him a little more and he is always great with the kids. Has a great sense of humor. He takes the extra time needed to explain things to you without rushing you. I am considering having surgery on my deviated septum and have no doubts about having him do the surgery.

    My experience with Dr. Bard has always been top notch! I feel thoroughly taken care of, he is extremely nice, patient & caring. I wouldn't go anywhere else. The staff is warm and the facilities are wonderful.

    This doctor was, by far, the worst I have ever seen. He did not even examine me and declared he knew what my diagnosis was. Not surprisingly, he was wrong, and I suffered severe damage from the condition being left untreated under Dr. Bard's care. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone I cared about (or anyone, for that matter).
