Dr. Banks took care of my husband's surgery, reconstructing his nasal passages and allowing him to breathe properly for the first time in years. Her approachable, thorough style and her support through every stage of the process inspired endless confidence and her capable, careful work was beyond what we could have hoped for.

We were with our son during his surgery by Dr. Banks and we can't say enough about how impressed we were with the staff, the facility, and the compassionate communication we received throughout the day. Dr. Banks was enormously reassuring to our son before and after the surgery. Knowing what to expect post op was so helpful in his recovery and in dealing with the pain and wound care. If we ever had need, we would travel to Mass Eye and Ear.

Dr. Caroline Banks warm inviting manner put me at ease the first time I met with her, being fearful of what she would say regarding my diagnosis - melanoma on my nose. She explained very clearly the plan for reconstructive surgery and subsequent plastic surgeries. She is extremely competent and has a broad knowledge base, all of which led to a great surgical outcome. Her staff is friendly, courteous, helpful and very efficient. This turned out to be a positive experience fo myself and family.

I have seen multiple ENTS through the course of multiple different injuries to my nose. But Dr. Banks by far exceeds expectations in all aspects of being a doctor. She is very caring compassionate and understanding. Dr. Banks definitely goes above and beyond for he patients. Even when dr. Banks was on vacation she took the time out to call me because I had a concern and eased my mind. She is by far the best doctor I have met this far. Her staff Ethel is also outstanding! Highly recommended!
