Dr. Shohet did my Esteem Middle Ear Implant surgeries. No complications, best surgical experience ever. He explained everything so well, I had no fear. This caring, skilled man makes me believe in superpowers. He is constantly training in the most current procedures backed by robust research & results. If it’s not a good procedure for you, he won’t consider it. If you want a doc who cares about you more than your money, these are the skilled hands of the principled man you want caring for you.

**AVOID THEM - MALICIOUS BILLING TACTICS** I was only granted an appointment if I agreed to a $300 hearing test which I was told my insurance would cover, and I would not pay anything for (I am 29 and my hearing is fine). Apparently the insurance didn’t cover any of it and attempted to bill me the entire $300. They ran it through the insurance a second time, and apparently then my insurance paid out half of the $300. Now I’m responsible for $150, after being told it would cost me nothing.

I visited Dr. Shohet because of low-frequency hearing loss. He encouraged me to pursue stapes surgery, which he performed. I experienced severe hearing loss in the operated ear for months following surgery, numbness, ringing, etc. The office and Dr. Shohet were poor at best for post-op care, and have not treated or addressed these symptoms. I'm now 2 years post-surgery with unresolved moderate-to-severe high frequency hearing loss (the reverse of my pre-op problem), swelling, and ringing.

I have had 2 different surgeries by Dr. Shohet to improve my hearing loss. I inherited 2 types of hearing loss from my father, & have worn hearing aids for years w/diminishing success. My first surgery was to correct bilateral "surfer's ear", followed by a stapedectomy on one ear 4 months later. Both surgeries were successful, & his staff was very helpful since I was traveling from out of state. He is one of very few who is certified for the "Esteem" implant. Highly recommend.
