Denver, CO |
This was one of the worst visit to the doctor I have had,and I have had a lot.i waited 50mins. To be seen and on the high side got about 2mins of attention from him. I was sent by primary care for fluid on ear, and because in his 30 sec examine he said nothing was wrong,other then a hair on my ear drum that he removed I ended up with trauma to ear punctured ear drum and then an infection,and an added visit to urgent care. Steroids and antibiotics. SO no I will never come back&,no one else should

This doctor preformed an unnecessary surgery on my left ear while operating on my right ear after I specifically directed him not to. Now I am almost completely deaf in my left ear which used to be my good ear all because he did not accept my description of an almost forty year history of ear problems and solutions as a possible scenario. My dismissal of his unbelief and his arrogance cost me the hearing in my left ear.
