Dr. Pierce removed my Mom's Parathyroid - the surgery was very successful and we are very grateful to Dr. Pierce and his team. Prior to the surgery my Mom was nervous so we called Dr. Pierce. He took the time and provided answers to all our questions, was very professional and very carrying. Next morning after the surgery he called to check on my Mom and later on during they day when we called to come and see him he got back to us right away. We are so fortunate that we were in his care.

Dr. Pierce removed my thyroid 10 days ago and I could not be happier with the treatment I received. He took the time to understand my concerns and answered my many questions. The surgery went well and I had no difficulties or side effects. The incision is already healing nicely to the point I'm not concerned with having a scar because it will be so minimal. I'm extremely happy with my choice!

I visited Dr. Pierce because I had a persistent (6 week+) problem with fluid in my inner ear affecting my hearing. Dr. Pierce proceeded with a standard procedure to pierce the eardrum and suction out the fluid. After the procedure was complete Dr. Pierce mentioned that the fluid may return (it did). I then receive a bill $1,156 for a 20 min. visit. So, was his motivation to correct the root-cause of my problem (infection) or to profit from a procedure to apply a temporary fix for the symptoms
