Patient Comments (2)

My first ever visit to an ENT. Dr. Braaten acted like he had somewhere else to be. Didn't even sit down to talk! I felt like I was getting a Bums Rush.

Excellent bedside manner. Treats you like an individual person, not like a patient he has to get through with so he can move onto the next.
