Patient Reviews (7)
Cleveland, OH |
Dr. McDonnell told my father time & time again that his throat pain was caused by stress. After about 3 months of no treatment, my father went to another ENT & learned, after some testing, that he had cancer in his throat & the back of his tongue, as well as in numerous lymph nodes. After reading other reviews, it seems as it is common for this doctor to skim by patients concerns & brush them off as minor issues. If my dad had listened to this doctor I probably wouldn't have him around today.
in Medina, OH |
EXTREMELY unprofessional and was of no help to me. He diagnosed me with an inner ear infection and said it would go away and to call if problems persisted. I called back around a month after my visit and he inferred that my symptoms were "in my head". If that were the case wouldn't it be neglectful on his part not to refer me to a doctor that specializes in mental illness since apparently I'm SO severely mentally ill that I'm experiencing physical symptoms. Why was that not said at first visit?

Had to have polyps removed he did and all was well. Great follow up.
in Independence, OH |
Was referred to Dr. McDonnell *by my PCP for obstructive nasal polyps.* He took a look & said I didn't have nasal polyps, I had turbinates & "everyone has those." Tried to minimize my issue by blaming dry air & medication. He requested CAT scans which came back clean then referred me to a neurologist. When I asked how a neurologist was going to fix the congestion, bleeding, and inflammation inside my nose, he advised me to receive a 2nd opinion from another ENT. Waste of time and money.
in North Olmsted, OH |
Had almost no] hearing, and screeching noise in right ear x 3 weeks after treated with 2 antibiotics for otitis media per CCF Express Care. McD very curt; condescending. Insulted Express Care CCF North Olmsted staff's ability to diagnose. Insulted me by saying I don't know why you're bothered by this. After I expressed my opinion of his insulting words, he relented and said he wasn't minimizing my problem. Would not recommend this person. Poor attitude. Left office without resolved issue.
in Sullivan |
Seemed annoyed and in a hurry. Does not take time with patients, well at least with me. He looked in my ears said I'm fine and left. Seems to care about money more then patients. Would never recommend him.
in Medina, OH |
Courtious and very informative, takes time with his patient.
