Dr Cristobal was the first doctor I was able to see who treated Menieners Desease in Fort Worth, TX. He was very nice, compassionate and knew who I'd been seeing and familiar with with the facility as he'd studied there. I've received excellent care there and they now see my daughter and her two sons. I've finally gotten fewer migraines, vertigo attacks, dizziness more under control, not gone, but so much better

Good doctor, but doesn't care about his patients time. Ridiculous to be so late.

My father is 97 and VERY hard of hearing in both ears. My brother and I accompanied him to this appointment from Colorado. Having not met Dr. Cristobal before, we were all uncertain of what to expect.Dr. Cristobal was warm and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. The surgery went without a hitch. We could not be more pleased with the results. My Dad is hearing better than he has in a year!

Audiologist: Lindi Berry Has a lack of communication with her patients. Does not know how to consult with patients that are experiencing trouble. Never once recommended patient to see the ENT after multiple times of trying to fix the complications. Do not waste your time or money. Go else where to a doctor that cares for their patients.

I was his last appointment of the day. I felt that Dr. Cristobal was patient with me and not rushed. I am deaf in one ear and he always made sure that when spoke to me he was on my hearing side. Very personable! Staff were very helpful and professional.
