I have been seeing Dr. Syms for close to 16 years and have seen his office move and expand. What he has done for my ears has been nothing short of a miracle.

Dr. Syms is a very caring and attentive doctor. He is thorough in explaining what could possibly be going on with me and took the time to actually explain my options.

I will never recommend Dr. Syms to anyone. He is the worst doctor. His bedside manners are horrible. He has damaged my ear. I went to him to have my ears checked. To get tested he took wax out with some type of powered tool. He was such in a hurry to do it that he was dropping his tools. It was so loud that the nurse walked in to ask if he was ok. Since then I have developed tinnitus. I left several messages and no one has called me back. I do not recommend Charles Syms.

I stopped using Dr Syms in 2014 because his physician assistant and the telephone operator would not let me see Dr Syms, on several occasions. On one of my visits, I had a serious ear infection, the physician assistant prescribed a syringe for me to clean out my ear, then I blew a hole in my ear membrane.

Nice, but seems irritated spending time with you answering questions. sorry it may be boring for you, but I'm going through a bewildering new normal for me and I want reassurance, information, empathy and some idea of what may be in store for me for the weeks, months, ahead. Scheduling is terrible, paid parking, even though it's out at the far end of the medical center where you're not really having to compete for space. What I really liked was the audiologist staff; they're awesome
San Marcos, Tx |
Appears medically competent and has high esteem of himself. Virtually no return calls made to me over many attempts. On one appt I arrived on time for an early afternoon appt when I would be his first patient. He was 45 minutes late. Another appt he cancelled and staff lied about reason. Later staff admitted he needed that time to deal with medical students. Would not recommend him.
