Had a cochlear implant. No problems related to the procedure. Very little pain, actually only took about 4 of the pain medication.

Dr.Micco has been so awesome taking care of my hearing loss and making me feel cared for with his genuine concern. Always gets me in whenever I need to be seen and wait time is a minimum if any. His staff is super and I have never had a complaint in all the years he has been my doctor.

Excellent surgeon, experienced and trustworthy. True patient advocate. Great bedside manner. Wouldn’t want to see anyone else. Performed two surgeries in two years. Great outcomes. I can hear with a cochlear implant better than I have in years. Thank you!

Dr. Micco is very knowledgeable and cares very much about his patients. He checked on me before the surgery, during the surgery, and after the surgery. He explained everything to me well so that I fully understood what was happening. His staff is also very good. I had a very positive experience and would highly recommend Dr. Micco and his staff for anyone needing this type of surgery. He didn't make me feel rushed; I felt very welcome by the doctor and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Micco.

Dr. Micco is excellent! His expertise is outstanding and five stars or MORE, a great diagnostician, also very kind and personable. Once you see him you don't need to see anyone else for your ENT issues. His assistant Alex is also very kind, responsive and knowledgeable. Highly recommended! ??????????

Dr Micco is extremely knowledgeable and really cares about his patients. He specializes in neurotology, which with a rare neurological issue is extremely valuable. He answers all my questions and works with my other physicians. He's a great doctor!

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
