We are new patients and we took our 4 yr old son to see Dr. Newton for an accident with the q-tip hitting deep into his ears. Dr. Newton saw him for 5 minutes and said he was fine and it will heal on its own. Just to sure, he suggest having him do a hearing test. To my disbelief, I got a bill for $1000! $700 for seeing him for 5 mins and $300 for the hearing test! This is the insurance negotiated rate! He may be very good, I don't know, but $700 just to see him for 5 minutes is too much!

Dr. Duncan has an amazing bedside manner and showed tremendous care and compassion for my children! We have entrusted all 3 of our children to him at different points and highly recommend him to anyone needing an ENT.

Dr. Duncan's go to is always surgery. When my 3 y/o sons ears were stopped up, he swore tubes were the only answer. (Our pediatrician thought there might have been an allergy.) Dr. Duncan laughed at me when I brought it up. We found out later that my son was very allergic to dairy (in addition to plugged up ears and slight hearing loss, he had eczema and was always constipated.) I took him off dairy and all his issues went away. (And after 4 years off dairy, he seems to be able to tolerate it.)
