i saw Dr. Halvorson one time,and I am very disappointed. I have never had a hearing problem so I don't know what's routine but ALL him and his staff did was give me a hearing test,inform me that that hearing was badly damaged,set me up for a MRI and that's all folks. I call his office the day of my MRI and informed them that my hearing wasn't any better and that I wanted to know the results of the MRI. It's been 3 weeks and not yet have I heard anything from him nor his office.

Great doctor and was very pleased with the overall experience.
The Dr didn't even give me instructions after the stitches was taken out. So I wore big bandage over it until I saw my primary Dr.who told me to keep it aired out. They took my co pay before I went back now they say I didn't pay it. They are too in a hurry to answer any questions. But have time to collect your money. The Surgery went great though but follow-up is very disappointing.
