What People Say About Dr. Richard Hubbell, MD

My son has had speech articulation issues for quite some time. We got a referral to see Dr. Hubble from our pediatrician and needed to wait months to see him. We met with his intern 1st, then the audiologist and finally Dr. Hubble. He came into the room in an obvious hurry, told my son to either open up or he would need to put "this wooden thing" (tongue depressor) down his throat and made me feel stupid when asking questions about possible structural and/or breathing problems. He spent literally 2 minutes with us and were told "he's just slow to develop and needs speech therapy", which my son had already been doing for 1 1/2 years. And...he wanted us to come back to have his ears tested, yet again...which he's had done already. Definite waste of time and my insurance money!

What a jerk. And a flake. After months of waiting to be seen, he only took 3 minutes and basically told us we didn’t know what we were talking about and made us feel stupid. What a waste of time and money. Never again will we go to him, and we would never recommend this guy. Ever.

Dr Hubbell damaged my hearing. I had a microsuction procedure that was extremely painful and loud, so loud that it deafened my hearing and worsened my tinnitus. Now I hear a high pitched distortion in my ear when ever I speak so that I can barely hear my own voice. Any high pitched music or other people speaking also causes this distortion in my hearing. It's like the screeching sound a microphone makes. I previously had the procedure with no problem so I know this was not done correctly.

I brought my 7 day old daughter to have her tongue tie cut because she was having trouble latching. The procedure was done with scissors and he then left me In the room with a screaming baby and left. He came back and told us we could leave. He never scheduled a follow up. Now 5 weeks later I went to a Lactation specialist because I have been sore and she was still having trouble latching and I find out he never did the procedure the right way. She is still very tongue tied. Not reccomended.
