I have seen Dr. Hegarty several times in the past for vertigo. Today I picked up hearing aids in his audiology department working with Dr. Cassie Iliff. I would certainly recommend both.

Dr. Hegarty is the only doctor we've gone to for our hearing in the 19 years we've lived in COS. Excellent doctor/patient relationship. He (and his staff) are thorough, patient, professional, pleasant.

I have been seeing Dr Hegarty for a year now and while my hearing is not fully perfected, I believe we are making progress. Dr Cassie Illif has worked with me on selecting hearing aids that do help my issues. Thank you to all the staff of the clinic! Jerry

Dr. Hegarty listens well and responds back with understanding & explanations that help educate a person about what is going on. I now have a rehab program & plans for more diagnostics to clarify my condition more concisely. I drove 6 hrs. to my appointment with him and felt it was worth way more than a previous consult only an hour away.

I've been seeing Dr. Hegarty for a couple of years. His office is run professionally and there's never a long wait. He's the best ENT I've ever had (and I've been seeing ear doctors all my life). He takes time to explain things and is open to new ideas.
