Dr. Bartels is awesome. He was our last hope after two failed ear surgery’s. He not only fixed my daughters hole in her eardrum but rebuilt her a new one and found another issue in her ear tube that was undiagnosed. Seven weeks after surgery and her hearing is almost perfect. She is thriving now!! So thankful we found him.

I made an appointment for a consultation. Two weeks later staff called to ask if I had the MRI done. I said none had been ordered and I did not want one. Coming in only for consult on medical advances for my particular problem. A few days before the appt. staff called asking the same question. I cancelled the appt. Just got billed $50. for a 'no show'. What a nerve! Bad enough staff is incompetent. If only Dr. Bartels knew.

Dr. Bartels diagnosed me with Vestibular Neurosis after years of searching for answers and suffering from this disease. His knowledge and understanding of my disease made me feel much better and not feeling alone about moving forward and coping with my disability in the future. Thank you and your staff for giving me hope.

My son had chronic ear infections. Our regular ENT recommended we see Dr. Bartels. After several appointments with Dr. Bartels, my son went from almost requiring hearing aids to about 95% normal hearing. My son will soon be getting the one hole closed from his tubes, the other closed on its own. The journey was long, but the outcome is worth every effort. My son being able to hear at a normal level is priceless.

Dr Bartels is an exceptional physician of the highest quality. I needed surgery for chlosteatoma and an implant for a deteriorated bone. His thorough explanations were outstanding
