We were situated with an audiologist and explained we wanted to see Dr Hart. Much confusion with audiologist. They set us up with Dr Hart who was extremely rude. ...more

Had tonsils and adenoids removed, uvula "sculptured." Dr Hart was fantastic! While this type of surgery is certainly not a fun experience, but having Dr Hart there every step of the way sure helped!

Took my two year old too him. He looked in her ear, and immediately said she needed tubes. He was extremely hard to hear because he was too quiet, and we saw him for very very short time. Less than 5 minutes.
