Review of Dr. Ator

-Braymer , MO |

The doctor asked me rude questions and it was obvious that he was not interested in treating the tinnitus that I suffer from. He did not even ask me what the tinnitus sounds like that I experience. He and his assistant were both belittling of the symptoms of the tinnitus that I suffer from. They treated me like they did not believe that I have tinnitus. If you have tinnitus do not visit this doctor, you will be wasting your time.

Review of Dr. Latz

-Slater, MO |

Dr. Latz is amazing. She placed our sons ear tubs and removed his tonsils/adenoids. She check on him throughout the day following his surgery and was sure to answer any questions that we had. Should we ever need any other ENT services we will definitely follow up with her.

Review of Dr. Staecker

- in Leawood |

I had searched for a surgeon and help for three years. Dr. Staecker was the first doctor who was able to put all of my symptoms together and not see symptoms as anxiety driven. The treatment he provided changed my life for the better. I am so grateful for his knowledge, insight, and compassion. I continue to recommend Dr. Staecker to people who are searching my for answers.

Review of Dr. Sale

-

I saw Dr. Sale for the first time for a concern that I had. I've never left a review for a doctor, but he was impressive enough to prompt me to write this review. I don't know that I've ever had a doctor with better bedside manner than Dr. Sale. He was thorough with his explanations and never once seemed like he was in a rush to move to the next patient. He allowed me time to ask questions. I'm fortunate that I don't need follow up. I will not hesitate to see him again if I do need an ENT.

Review of Dr. Garnett

-

Be very careful when considering this Physician. We believe our mother would still be alive today if she had not trusted him to perform what he represented to be a "simple procedure'. Dr. Garnett failed to mention that a vocal cord procedure he performed could destroy her swallowing…which it did. She had to have a feeding tube placed in her stomach and subsequently died. We would not recommend him to anyone EVER. He was a cold , arrogant terrible communicator and physician.

Review of Dr. Staecker

-

I had seen several specialists in neurology, otolaryngology and opthomology with no explanation for my extreme dizziness after vision trauma, Dr.Staecker was able to diagnosis, treat and alleviate my symptoms in two visits. I found him compassionate and very bright. He is often in a hurry because he is in such demand, however.

Review of Dr. Latz

- in Kansas City, MO |

5 years ago my son was diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnea. NO ONE could figure out what exacting was obstructing his sleep. . I was told to cancel his ENT appointment, but something made me not do that. Thank God I didn’t! Dr. Latz figured out exactly what was wrong with him! We had seen several other ENT physicians and none could diagnose him. She is a true gem and God send! My son is now 5 years old and healthy as can be thanks to her!
