Patient Comments (3)

Waited a long time in the waiting room, doctor didn't seem to care when I told him my problems and ultimately recommended surgery. Surgery after 2 appointments and no biopsies, cultures, or lab tests? Give me a break. This is my NOSE dude, near my BRAIN.

Very non personable, did not seem like he really cared, just wanted to get the appointment over with. Also told me I had permanent hearing loss and needed surgery when none of that was true, he made a terrible diagnosis. I would not recommend him.
