Dr Pao Vang was marvelous, he gave me back my ability to hear. I lost my hearing in my right ear and delayed several months thinking it was simply fluid in the ear that would correct itself. While the procedure to fix my problem wasn't the most enjoyable experience of my life, the results were dramatic and immediate. I was especially impressed that he dealt with the issue immediately, not stringing me out for multiple visits. Overall, I was exceptionally impressed with the quality of care.
