Patient Comments (2)
in Denver, CO |
I had vertigo for days & was extremely ill from it. My husband took me to see Dr. Tralla & he was a godsend. He did some tests and found that I had loosened my inner ear rocks, which helps with your equilibrium. He is a kindhearted doctor that really cares for his patients. I highly recommend him.
in Golden, co |
The doctor saw me for all of 5 minutes, looked up my nose (for about 2 seconds). The instrument he used hit the inside of my nose which hurt for the rest of the day. His advice to use a nasal rinse gave me the worst headaches. Then his office is demanding absurd amounts of money from me for a horrible experience. Do NOT go to this doctor.
