8 years of child suffering with 20+ ear infections & 4 sets of ear tubes before we found dr speach. trusted his decision that only removing adenoids and not tonsils would solve the ear infections and he was exactly right! 5 years later and not one more ear infection!!!

Excellent doctor! He even found my thyroid cancer in my first visit (well, suspected and sent me for more testing before saying that).when other providers failed to do so, even after multiple visits. Dr. Speach and the office staff are all very friendly and it's so easy and quick to get an appointment.

Dr. Speech was amazing. We went to him regarding getting some vocal cord polyps removed after another doctor suggested speech therapy and refused to remove them until at least December, even though they were affecting my voice quality. Dr. Speech got me into his office and surgery quick and even called to check on me after the surgery. He is super knowledgeable about what he does and is a wonderful doctor! Thanks so much Dr. Speach. I would definitely go back with any other ENT problems I had.

Son had a tonsillectomy and adenoids removed. Dr. Speach kept us informed every step of the way. Easy to speak with and understand. He repeatedly checked on my son every few days via telephone.

His front office team is fabulous and scheduling was easy. The doctor of audiology in the practice is also personable and excellent. I did not care for Dr. Speach. Each time I tried to ask a question, he cut me off. He was, frankly, somewhat arrogant and condescending. I almost got up and walked out of the appointment. While I do not disagree with his assessment, I found the experience to be poor. And, again, I had several questions and other data to share.
