While being very professional, Dr Routemant has a most pleasant personality, easy to talk to and very informative on health tips connected with my problem. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking a top notched ENT. He advised me that should I have an emergency that all I need to do was call his office and they would tell me to come in immediately. This was my first visit to DR Routeman but he will be my choice for an ENT in the future.
