I went in 2 weeks ago because I had a clogged ear for 2 months and was hoping to have it cleaned out, or find out what was clogging it. The nurse looked in my ear, said there was nothing in it, and immediately took me for a hearing test, which I thought was pretty weird, since I didn't say I was having trouble hearing, just that my ear felt blocked/clogged. The results of the hearing test showed them that I had slight high frequency hearing loss...Probably due to the fact that my ear was clogged

Dr. Layland is a wonderful physician. He solved my issues immediately. He is thorough, accurate, and very pleasant. Any poor review written on this site was clearly written by someone who is unhappy in general. The poor reviews should be taken off this site, they are inaccurate.

I cannot THANK Dr. Layland enough. By the time I got to his office, he was the 6th doctor I have seen in two weeks time. I was seriously ill and was unable to eat. After a HORRIBLE experience the day before at the Oral Surgeon office who was supposed to have taken a biopsy but didn't, I was feeling pretty hopeless. Dr. Layland took his time and I could appreciated the fact that he was honest and told me he doesn't know what it is but will take a biopsy and HELP ME GET SOME ANSWERS!!! I THANK U!

Doctor did not seem very attentive and did not volunteer to try and educate or explain to us things in detail. Overall seemed disinterested and the worst part was when he pulled out a used tongue depressor from a drawer, used it then put it back in the drawer. Completely shocked!!! Did not even realize all this happened until after it happened. Had my family in the room with me so there were witnesses to corroborate what I saw because it was unbelievable! Currently looking for a new ENT dr.

Dr. Layland did extensive sinus surgery for me. He was patient and explained everything thoroughly. I was amazed that the surgery recovery went as well as it did. Despite extensive sinus reshaping I had no bruising and had a speedy recovery. I put off my surgery for over two years. I am very glad I did it and would use him again.
