      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

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
