Patient Comments (1)

The technician that took my hearing test had no bedside manner and not once explained to me any of the procedures/tests she was about to run, including shoving some instrument into my ear and pulling it out without care. Dr. Goodman was nice enough to listen to my symptoms but had little sympathy...more
