Patient Comments (1)

I had a total thyroid removal and Dr. Earnhardt was absolutely the best. His bedside manner was something I wish all doctors had. He was very informative with everything he was doing and I ABSOLUTELY loved him and would recommend him. His office staff and nurses were extremely nice also.
