My visit with Dr. Branch didn't go well. He was impatient, condescending, insensitive, hurried, arrogant, rude, and unenthusiastic. My experience with Dr. Branch was unsettling and will not be repeated. On a positive note, his staff was friendly and helpful.

If you’re looking for a doctor who’s an amazing healer - someone who really listens when you speak, someone who really cares….well, keep looking friend, because Dr. Branch is not that person. Ask him a question and he’ll respond with one word. Ask him to elaborate and he’ll talk down to you. He has no empathy. I don’t know what interests this man, but I’m confident it’s not related to ears, noses, or throats. I’ve seen more passion at the DMV. You’re thinking, “So he had a bad day. Give him a break.” That’s what I thought too - but he’s worse on subsequent appointments, like as if he’s annoyed you had the audacity to return! Please, avoid Dr. Branch. You can do better.

He seemed to be more interested in insulting my wife than to actually help her. He was rude and obnoxious to her. Refused to tell her about any possible relationship her sinus infection has with her lungs "Because I'm not a Lung Dr., so that is up to you to check on your own." Insinuated that she doesn't have RA. Asked "Who told you that you have it." Interesting that he won't help her with other possible ailments because it isn't his field, but criticizes diagnoses of other Doctors. We LOVE all the Florida Medical Doctors we have had contact with, but definitely will NEVER go back to this one.

His office staff is wonderful. In my time on two occasions with Dr. Branch I found him to be professional and thorough and upon leaving his office I felt that I had been with a doctor who is an excellent ENT.

I couldnt make up my experience with this doc if I tried. Dont bother. Complete waste of time. Why he is in this field is beyond me. He must have ditched his ethics and bedside manner class in college. What he is now doing in Summerfield is a whole other big question.

I liked Dr. Branch! He was ‘all business,’ which is something that SOME patients do not like, but I do. I don’t care about ‘personality.’ I just want knowledge, caring, and support. I felt I got these with Dr. Branch. At my first appointment with him, he gave me time to ask questions, to understand alternatives to my treatment, and to feel comfortable. He explained several options, in case medication does not work for my chronic nasal drainage and plugged ear.

Found him to be quite curt and condescending, expecting me to remember results on a CTR from 10 years ago. My primary care physician never received my results from 3 weeks ago.

I thought immediately of many adjectives to describe Dr Branch, but contemptuous is at the top of my list. As the visit continued, this was all the more evident to me. Finally, he asked if I'd had any surgeries on or around my head, I said yes and told him what they were. He had nothing to answer. My surgery was done using endotracheal intubation which I know could be a side effect of what I seek answers for. P.S. His assistant is a gem

I am unsure why some folks gave Dr. Branch a poor review. I think they are being very harsh. I found him very committed to his patients and showed a very caring attitude. I am so pleased I found him. He diagnosed my symptoms and explained the procedure of draining the fluid from my ear, step by step. I was very worried and apprehensive but he eased all my fears. If you are looking for a good ENT then look no further. His staff are extremely friendly, caring and fun.

Dr. Branch does not listen to his patients when they are giving a medical history. Additionally, Dr. Branch does not seem to have any patience for patients who cannot explain thier issues/problems in medical jargon. He could really stand to work on his bedside manner. I will not be returning to his facility.
