My visit w/ Dr. Micco was one of the worst experiences I've had with a medical professional. He didn't ask me any health questions; he didn't review my medical records; he didn't seem interested in any way whatsoever; he didn't know how to review MRI scans & blamed the computer; he didn't explain my test results; and he left me with no confidence in his assessment in any way. Frankly, I want to contact my insurance co. and tell them not to cover this doctor's treatment--because there was none

Since the first day that I went to see Dr Micco, and during my surgery, he has been super professional and understanding with my case. He is making sure that my procedure is going well. Any question I have he is always available to answer and offer me options so I know what to expect. I am super relieved that Dr. Micco was in charge of my surgery. Thanks to him I'm recovering pretty well and soon I will get my hearing back.
