I highly recommend Dr. Learn, because she is the type of specialist I often wished for but rarely, if ever, find. Informed, patient, kind, organized, listened and gathered my health history very well and understood what I was saying, even though it was a bit unusual, could accommodate a patient with complex medical needs, very clear in describing a treatment plan that makes sense, and available if changes are needed. I spent a long time finding her and am very pleased.

Dr. Learn conducted the briefest of examinations and determined that since I was not in the middle of an "episode" which I had experienced the week before, there was nothing she could do. She did not offer any insight into what might have caused my symptoms, nor was she receptive to my questions. Her responses included "What can I do that will make you happy?" and "You can have an MRI done if you want." She did not know the cost of an MRI.

My first visit with Dr. Learn was a wonderful experience. I was greeted by Crystal and then Stephanie, both very professional and courteous. There was hardly any wait time, how refreshing this was! I was so impressed with Dr. Learn from the time she introduced herself until the time I left. I would highly recommend Dr. Learn.

Dr. Learn is a one of a kind doctor. Her ability to listen to the patient, apply her knowledge and experience to problem solve makes her a very very good doctor. She took so much extra time with my husband and I trying to solve a difficult problem and was "key" in helping us find what the problem is. She cares about her patients and is very pro-active in helping to make them better. I highly recommend Dr. Learn for any ENT issues you may have. Thank you Dr. Learn
