Dr. May is a terrific Doctor & Surgeon! I had a very difficult & dangerous surgery a few years ago. Without a wonderful surgeon like Dr. May, my life could be very different right now. I will forever be in debt to him. My wife & I are very thankful we were referred to him by my Audiologist in our hometown. I look forward to every follow up appointment with him, he is very thorough to keep my ears healthy & well. I highly recommend him!
