in Woodbury, TN |
Dr. Paffrath inserted tubes in my ears. I'm the dummy here because I agreed, but he provided absolutely no information about the procedure, the implications or the outcome. I learned online that most tubes fall out within a year, but I just learned that some are permanent. I'll have to have these removed. Dr. Paffrath is the epitome of a greed-driven provider who does procedures because that's where the money is.

Removed cyst from my ear with no discomfort. Took time to listen, did an excellent job and is a nice person. Highly recommended.
