What People Say About Dr. John Macias, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I work in the medical field, and after painstakingly researching a provider who works with Meniere’s Disease, I contacted his office in July 2019 to make an appointment. I checked out the website prior to make certain that he was accepting new patients. The earliest appointment available was October 28. I’ve subsequently been seen by another physician with only a 3 week waiting period, and am quite pleased with my alternative choice. Dr. Macias appears to possess exemplary education and experience, but more than a 3 month wait to see him was unacceptable.

Dr. Macias is an amazing doctor! My mother was shifted from one doctor to another and she could never get a diagnosis. Dr. Macias did a CT scan and found that she had an invasive cyst that was burrowing into the bone in her inner ear. Now 4 weeks after surgery she can almost hear 100%; her balance is coming back and the loud noises on the left side of her head are almost gone. He is a true doctor and all he wants to do is to help you!!

I have been seeing Dr Macias years and I would give him five stars. I called in today to renew a prescription and was told in a very unfriendly manner I would have to see dr first and that would be 2 1/2 months out. Dr Macias has told me it was important to stay on my medication. I guess I have no choice but to look for help elsewhere.

I have been a patient of Dr. Macias for almost 25 years. He has treated my for bone conductory hearing loss and performed two successful stapedectomies. He has treated my son also with the same professionalism and integrity. Most recently I had a severe attack of dizziness that required hospitalization. Although Dr. Macias hadn't seen me in a number of years, he (and his staff) worked me in immediately and has been helping me through a most difficult illness. He is intelligent and caring too

Although I think Dr. Macias is a good and skilled doctor, I think it is unreasonable for patients who see him on a regular basis has to wait 5 plus weeks to get an appointment when one is in pain. I'm in the medical profession myself and we would always work a patient in if they were a current patient and in pain.

Notice: he's only an EAR doctor. When I called and explained history: sleep apnea, ear ache/infections, headaches--procedures listed on this website as conditions the doctor treats, I was told he does not treat anything related to the nose or throat. Dr. Macias refers out for these type of patients. When I asked which doctors he refers to, the staff would not give me any suggestions without a consultation. A consultation to be told to go somewhere else? Seriously?? Not much of a specialist.

After seeing ENT'S here in the Valley of Arizona for many years and messing up with my ears i finally found the one. Dr. Macias Excellent Dr. Kind good manners, good listener. Gives you hope and resolves problems. Staff very professional. Waiting time it doesn't matter to me as long as I am being care for when I am consulting with him. I want to be treated like a human being not like people working at a factory always on the clock. I have a lot of respect for Dr Macias.
