I was incredibly disappointed with the doctor and needed to seek out a second opinion because she didn't want to spend the time getting to the bottom of my issue. The doctor with the second opinion not only spent the time, but went through all the options of solution to fix the problem. Dr. Suurna to the way to easy way out. Really disappointed.

Dr. Suurna's work was impeccable. The only refinements I have: I had to slow her down when it came to her advises with my situation. She was a bit too fast, perhaps assuming that I'd had experience with the condition I was experiencing, and with the methods for at home follow up that she was suggesting. In fact my situation was totally new to me, and rather traumatizing over several visits with my other oto doc (with no clear resolution), even if it may've seemed relatively simple or cut & dry to Dr. Suurna. Regardless of all that, what she did in the office did help me, is still holding up, and I'm sure some follow up with one of the doctors who treated me will be in order... For this I am supremely grateful to Dr. Suurna.

I found her rude, dismissive, and inattentive. I didn't follow her explanations and found her reducing me to a statistic immediately w/no attention to the specifics of my circumstances. I would not recommend others seek out this doctor for help. I would look elsewhere- anywhere else.
