In our specialty, in-office procedures may need to be performed to fully assess otolaryngic (ear, nose & throat) complaints. We attempt to perform these procedures on the same day of the visit. While this might prolong your (and other patients') visit, we believe it respects your time and finances by preventing the need for a separate appointment (with a separate copay) wherein the procedure would otherwise be performed.
We place a high value on educating our patients regarding their condition. Consequently, your visit might not be the speediest, but will be thorough and pleasant. If you prefer a physician who spends 3-5 minutes with the patient & rarely listens, in an effort to move on to the next patient, our office might not be the best choice for you. We do not apologize for educating and listening to ALL of our patients.
