Dr. Laura Brainard is an awesome doctor!. She put tubes in my ears and always me with my hearing issues. She treated my ear infections really cared about me. Most ENTs told me it was something they could not help. She cared about me! I REALLY MISS HER!! i WAS SCHOCKED WHEN SHE TOLD ME I NEEDED TO FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR!. i am still looking since she left in December. I grew up in Bay City, Michigan. Maybe I will have fly in.

My experience with Dr. Brainard over the past several years has been very positive. She has performed ear surgery for me twice and she has kept me informed of options and status of my ear health and hearing performance. I believe she is a talented surgeon and I appreciated her depth of knowledge and expertise with my hearing situation.

From my first consultation visit all the way through my BAHA surgery and post surgery visits, Dr. Brainard, was very professional and courteous. She was very thorough and explained the BAHA procedure in detail. She told us exactly what the surgery entailed and things I might experience after the surgery. She was very patient with us and answered all of our questions and concerns. She wasn't pushy and gave us all of the information we needed in order to make a decision about the surgery.

Professional, attentive and considerate. Discussed and worked with a team to perform gamma knife radiation treatment for a glomus jugulare tumor. Office is comfortable and quiet and was prompt in calling to schedule follow-up visits.

Seems confused, makes conflicting and muddled recommendations, doesn't answer questions, very negative outcome for routine procedure and unbelievably bad follow up
