Patient Comments (8)
Buffalo, NY |
He came in the room, barely addresses my issues and had the audiologist address my hearing. The audiologist found a hearing loss in my right ear. He saw me again and told me that I had a loss and needed an MRI. He never explained why. I had to ask him to come back and explain this to me. He also forgot to help me with what I went there for., my itchy right ear. He prescribed some drops that made it itch more. I would not recommend him. Very abrupt!
Pittsford, NY |
Dismissed my issues, told me a condition I had been experiencing for 8 months was impossible to have, was very off-putting. Made me feel very defeated about something I've been dealing with for a long time. Clearly did not want to help.
Rochester, NY |
Visited Dr Topf because my ears were clogged, he entered the room and I told him every time I blow my nose my ears would clog and the only way to unclog them would be to put my head between my legs. His response was "don`t blow your nose" I thought he was kidding....... he was not, I refuse to see him in the future, His staff on the other hand is very kin and helpful

Came in for severe ear pain that had left by the time I got an appointment. Dr. Topf glanced in my ear, said it was normal, told me to come back if it hurt again and said goodbye. About a one minute appointment. Never asked any questions or spoke about what may have caused the pain.

Shortest consultation ever. He took a total of 4 minutes or so for an initial consultation for which the insurance gets charged a full half hour.Avoid at all costs.
Rochester, NY |
very accommodating for my daughter ear tube
He was unwelcoming and made me feel pressure to prove that my visit had a real point. I had some questions and concerns that I brought up, which he clearly viewed as a waste of his time. His responses to me were rude, reflected a lack of care, and indicated that I was wasting his time. He didn't ask me any further questions. I walked away feeling unvalidated and stupid. I would not recommend Dr. Topf to anyone.
He rushes through his appointments and doesn't take his time. My first appointment I waited 20 minutes to see him and then he saw me for no more than 3 minutes. My second appoint me saw me for 5 minutes
