I initially saw Dr. Cullen about 3 yrs ago b/c of ear wax blockage, and have since seen him biannually for hearing tests. I have confidence in his medical expertise and that of his audiologist based on their testing and follow-up consultations, which have been thorough, professional, and appropriate for my age and condition.

I called on March 9, 2017 to schedule an appointment. Office staff stated I needed a referral so had my doctor's office send referral to my insurance. Then the day before my appointment, the office staff called to say they needed additional codes added to the referral before I could be seen. Got the approval but because they did not have a hard copy, they cancelled my appointment but did not bother to notify me. They only care about money and not helping a person.l
