Dr. Heaberlin worked me in same day as a new patient because I was having severe ear pain and sudden hearing loss. He took his time and explained in great detail what was going on with me. He is compassionate and knows his job well. I highly recommend Dr. Heaberlin if you are having any ear, nose, or throat issues.

This doctor did total thyroidectomy on me 6 years ago, explained that sometimes 1 parathyroid gland can become damaged etc. he said if they see one has been actively removed they can reimplant it in the arm so you can still have PTH which is vitally important. I spent 18 days in an ICU stepdown after my surgery. I have no working PTH function to this day. I have been an inpatient in hospital at least 16 times in 6 years for seizures and tetany caused by low calcium. I have to take a $9000 monthly med for this, which doesn't work completely and my kidneys are now shot because of the treatment of hypoparathyroidism. Oh, and that medicine is in recall with the FDA now, but since I was in the hospital for 11 days and was so sick they put me on a special use program which could be pulled at anytime. My life has never been the same and I know this doctor doesn't give a flip, after all I signed a consent form. I am personally glad he moved away. Beware if told you need thyroid surgery.

Saw this doctor six months ago. I was having a difficult time hearing in both ears and there was a great deal of pressure. I was given a hearing test and told to purchase nose spray. He didn't really know what the problem was and though it might be the eustachian tubes. There was no mention of coming back for a check up. I am still having problems and now I have pain in my ears. I am looking for a new ENT. He's a very nice man, I just felt rather dismissed by the whole experience.

Excellent doctor, who listened and corrected a problem that I had been having foreight months. Yes, I had seen other ENT doctors with no resolve. I travelled two hours and it was worth my trip. I am still seeing him for follow ups. I appreciate all he has done for me. I can hear, no more pain and I am no longer on antibiotics. Thanks Doctor Heaberlin ??

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Heaberlin. I had surgery to repair a deviated septum and was very pleased with the entire process. Dr. Heaberlin was very knowledgeable, very detailed in his assessment and explained everything to me in a clear and easy to understand manner. His staff was also very courteous and professional, and all of my appointments were on time, which is unusual for a doctor’s office. I was also very pleased with the results of my surgery. I would definitely re

I had chronic nose bleeds for three years. I had been cauterized 4 times prior to seeing Dr. Heaberlin. Nothing worked. My Family Physician referred me to Dr. Heaberlin. I went directly to Dr Heaberlin's office to schedule an appointment and was seen that same day. Dr. Heaberlin assured me on my first visit that he could help me. He performed a procedure in his office on my first visit. It has been over four months with no bleed.

Had dizziness for 5 years. Dr Heaberlin performed Epley Maneuver and it was gone. I actually had to have it done again 2 weeks later and I feel great. I highly recommend Dr Heaberlin. He's personable, kind and professional, explaining everything that was happening. The office staff was very nice and compassionate when I went in on an emergency basis. Good people, good place.
