I was referred to Dr. Carroll after irregular lab results indicated the need for an endocrinologist. Great choice! He is thorough, explains everything to make it easily understood. I know I’m in good hands as we sort out my prognosis & plan of care. I never felt rushed.

Concerns were brushed off ... twice. He is personable and fun to talk to, but didnt believe me and did nothing.

I had a L stapedectomy. All my appointments with Dr. Sewell and staff were friendly and professional. Dr. Sewell explained my upcoming procedure well and entertained all questions. Bedside manner was comforting. I felt very optimistic in his care. He also called the day after to check on me.

Dr. Sewall took time to explain things to me and, importantly, also to my son. I appreciate the fact that he called us at home the day after surgery to check in. He is an excellent surgeon and I would highly recommend him. My son wants me to add "and he loves dogs too!" :)

I went to Dr. Truman on referral from my ENT Doctor. He ordered labs and didn't get the results back for two weeks. He said he'd refer me to a neurologist and waited three weeks before he actually referred me. This is gross negligence! Never again.
