Keller, TX |
I have multiple children that have seen Dr. Bauer. He explains thoroughly and will use the least invasive means to help my child.
in Carrollton, TX |
We were referred to Dr.Bauer by our pediatrician and had a great experience. The office tested her hearing and he examined her and provided options. I have to admit I was a little concerned, given some of the reviews, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to submit a review. Be at ease. He's a nice and knowledgeable. That's all I care about. The office was nice as well, which is a plus.
in Coppell, TX |
Dr Bauer recommended my son get an MRI because he suspected he might need surgery for a salivary gland infection. His bedside manners leave much to be desired; he is a tad abrasive and condescending. I got a second opinion with ENT at childrens hospital, he told me theres no need for mri yet, he is getting ahead of himself. Be sure to get all facts from.him and ask as many questions and clarification as you need. I follwed my instinct, got a second opinion ans we are no longer his patients.
in DFW, TX |
We have seen Dr. Bauer for 7 years now. He has put in several sets of PE tubes and has an audiologist on staff in his office for hearing tests. He is practical, to the point, and very good with kids. He has an excellent sense of humor and tries to keep his appointments running on time. My daughter has bilateral hearing loss so I've been in his office countless times and I trust him completely. If he tries something and it doesn't work, he does not give up.

I'm not confident in his recommendation for a treatment plan (essentially no treatment, and my daughter can't hear), and I'm having to seek a second opinion.
