    Dr. Hume reconstructed my left ear on which I had no hearing. He did a stapes surgery which involves replacing little bones in the middle ear. 2 months after the surgery I recovered full hearing on my left ear. Dr. Humes is a great doctor and I would definitely go to him again.

    Dr. Hume restored hearing to my right ear 5/25/2016. This was my 4th stapedectomy and the best result I have ever received. His results were far better than the world famous House Ear clinic where I had my other 3 surgeries performed. He is a compassionate person, skilled surgeon and dedicated professional.

    Dr Hume is an amazing clinician. He was quite detailed in providing an evaluation to properly diagnose the genesis of my dizziness episodes. He took the time to listen, explain, but most importantly make sure that I had the resources to resolve my issues with care beyond his clinic.

    I had a excellent experience with Dr Hume. He performed a tympanomastoidectomy on me with excellent results. He is very caring and answers all questions thoroughly. He is very easy to communicate with and makes you feel very comfortable, he makes it very easy to trust him. I would highly recommend him.
