Dr. Von Doersten performed four endoscopic ear procedures on me during a period of 15 months in 2015 - 16. You could not find a more skilled surgeon. I am impressed with not only his skill, but with his caring and concern for his patients.

I was suspicious, terrified, and distrustful of doctors for much of my life, but having a positive experience with Dr. Von Doersten (and his staff) has brightened my view on the possibilities of a good medical experience, with truly big-hearted, and highly skilled people. His generosity with time, and his ability to listen are remarkable. He's one in a million.

Dr. Von Doersten demonstrated complete credence and equanimity throughout my procedure. He also has a good sense of humor, which indicates his higher brain function. Good choice of a doctor, even if you are not a rocket scientist.
