He is an arrogant jerk and his bedside manner is atrocious. He scaremonger my 90-year-old mother with his disinformation. What a quack!

Dr. Ettinger was very thorough. He took the time to listen and he explained what tests would be done. He was determined to find out what was the cause of the problem.

Awful. Wouldn't listen or answer questions. Gave her an inhaler (used in office) without asking about previous side effects. Rushed in, rushed out. Nurse no better. Worst of al he badmouthed her previous pulmonary doctor who retired l

Organized, competent. But incurious and doctrinaire. Adherent to ineffective drugs and treatments, which really just cause a lot of misery. Takes loads of drug-company money. I wish my dad had just stayed with his previous pulmonologist.

The best Pulmonary Doctor in the St. Louis area. He has done more since August 2018 than the Pulmonary consultance at Christian hospital did in the past 7 years. I highly recommend him.

Dr Ettinger was a consult on my husband's case. They did an inpatient sleep study because he was admitted for a seizure. All the tests were negative for the normal things associated with seizures. Dr Ettinger came in the day after a sleep study was done & told us he didn't have the results of the sleep study yet, but "no news was good new" and discharged him. I am an RN, this is not acceptable way to handle such a serious medical situation. It took MONTHS to get those results. UNACCEPTABLE!!
