I have been seeing Dr. Leffingwell for, years now. He is hands down the best ENT I have ever met. I Highly recommend him to everyone. Always tell family and friends about him!

Dr Leffingwell is without a doubt the best ENT in DFW area. He's extremely professional, engaging and generous. He goes the extra mile for his patients! Very rare these days finding doctors like him.

This dr, when he did talk to us, was RUDE. My son, 19, and had an inner/exterior ear infection. His ear was so swollen there was barely an opening. Care Now prescribed drops & an antibiotic. It improved, but because my son complained of hearing issues we went to go to a specialist. The dr scoffed at previous treatment, jammed something in my son's ear with NO explanation and started sucking crap out. He mumbled some med terms and said to stop the meds and left. No concern for the hearing issues.

My son had tubes put in a year ago. We have had several visits and each time there is a problem. Today's problem was telling us the appointment was at 3:00, even the voicemail that we got the day before said 3:00. When we got there at 2:45, we were told he should have been there at 2:30. The office staff were rude and unhelpful, they didn't seem to care about my son. Done with this doctor (who has NO social skills).
in Arlington, TX |
Rushed, non involvement with patient. Very little time spent in listening to patients problems. No explanation of diagnosis. Do not plan to return.
So far not pleasant. No answers and no urgency. Seeking new doctor.
