This is the worst ENT ever! They hide charges and have zero customer service skills at all!
No problem with the doctor. Only needed wax sucked out of my ear. My problem was with the $190 bill. According to the internet, this 30 second procedure can cost anywhere from $40 to $100.

Over the top Specialist. Was at 3 Otolaryngologist before seeing Dr. Hemmer. He was by far the best. Have had surgery performed by him and his hands are a gift from God.

Dr. Hemmer has a wonderful demeanor with his patients. He is very knowledgeable and considerate. He explains his evaluation and prescription recommendations in laymen terms. I would highly recommend him to anyone that I know.

I went in for SEVERE ear pain and it seemed like he was more concerned about selling me hearing aides? Hemmer looked at me 10/15 minutes total then sent me to the hearing test. Gave me some sample nose sprays and sent me on the way. Be careful the simple scope he puts in your nose to look at your throat is viewed by some insurance companies as a surgical procedure and billed as such. Read the small print on the agreements carefully as the billing dept. lady will tell you (well you signed it!)
