My experience is with the son, Bob. Not sure about Fred. Dr. Bob is too busy and just like the other reviews, leaves the room making you feel like you are bothering him. There is no explanation of a treatment plan, no patience. I feel like the past year was a waste of my time going there. I made sure and let my local ENT not to refer this place any more. He tried only one solution then was going to send me somewhere else but decided he better get an MRI to rule out a tumor. Don't go here!

Horribly rude, very mean man. To Dr. Owens, it doesn't matter what you think, have to say or are concerned about... and the mere speaking of that kind of stuff and you might find him cutting you off, quickly leaving the examining room without telling you what the next step is to find a diagnosis.

Wanted me to have an MRI because I couldn't hear. He & Costco confirmed that I needed hearing aids but wanted tumor ruled out He cancelled first appt & I had to wait 3 wks to see him for MRI results. He didn't get MRI results but said he didn't need it because he can look at film himself & see what's wrong. He was reluctant to tell me what was wrong with me. He said it must be vascular. He got mad & walked out on me. Said to go to them when my ear is draining pus and let them fix it.
