Struggled with severe tinnitus (ear ringing) for years. Went to several doctors who offered no help. Dr Bauer understood how debilitating the problem can be. She started treatment immediately and she successfully cured my problem. Very pleased. She was very attentive and polite.

Dr. Bauer has been wonderful with my daughter. She's been a patient there for the past 3 years. We travel over an hour to see her in Springfield and it is well worth it. After being told that there was nothing left to be done for our daughter's hearing loss (due to a retracted ear drum which was attached to the bones in her inner ear), Dr. Bauer provided many surgical and non-surgical options. I believe she is truly passionate about what she does and cares about her patients.
