If you are in need of an otologist doctor, I highly recommend Dr. Ronald de Venecia. He is so kind, caring and knowledgeable. Mass Eye and Ear is a world class hospital and people come from all over the world for care here. I am fortunate to live 15 minutes away. A very quick walk in good weather. Always a pleasure to see this doctor.

After a bout with Lyme disease, I was left with hearing loss and ringing in my right ear. My neurologist referred me to Dr. deVenecia for an assessment of possible treatments. Dr. deVenecia gave me a thorough explanation of the reasons for the hearing loss in my ear, using medical illustrations and the results of my audiology test as well as a thorough explanation of the various treatment options available to me. I was very pleased with both his thoroughness and his ability to explain things in an understandable way.

I was left in Dr. de Venecia’s care when Dr. Nadol retired several years ago . He had big shoes to fill, but I have no regrets . He is equally outstanding , - most knowledgeable , very personable , courteous and kind , always well prepared , and open to answering any question or concerns . I’m fortunate to be in his care and would highly recommend him to family and friends .

My husband waited about four months to get an appointment with the doctor. A week before the appointment they sent us a letter canceling and we had to rebook three more months out. No big deal because we knew we were seeing the best doctor and had previously see five or six doctors and got no diagnosis. The doctor did far to much talking and NO listening. Every time my husband started to explain what was going on with his ears the doctor would talk over him. He basically said that the tinnitus was all in his head and that he must clench his teeth/jaw (he doesn’t) and that’s what causes the pain. He didn’t want to hear what what my husbands symptoms were and had no interest in listening to how certain foods make his ears worse and cause fullness/positional vertigo. It was very discouraging and a complete waste of time. If the doctor had bothered to listen to anything my husband had to say maybe we could have gotten somewhere.

I think Dr de Venezia is a wonderful Dr. I got an appointment for a friend of mine, after I had been seeing him for 2 years, and she had nothing but praise for him. He is extremely caring.

It took 2 months to get an appointment. When I arrived, he was 70 minutes late, and rushing. He did not want to listen my complaints, or wanted know my history. He blamed all my issues I have been experiencing for past 6 years to minimal ear wax. I never heard any ENT specialist treating tinnitus, or left ear pain or balance issues or hearing loss with removal of ear wax. When I tried to explain that in the past removal of ear wax did not fix the issues as I have been seeing ENT doctors about my issues. I have been worried about my symptoms at that point as they were getting much worse recently. However, he got very mad, blamed my eye sight (I do not have any problems with my eyes) for my balance issues. He explained my hearing loss with my ADD (I don't have ADD). As he make up issues for me in a very insulting manner that does not match with my history at all, he also claimed that I was clenching to explain the ear pain. It got so ridiculous, and irritating, I filed a complaint.

I can't say enough great things about Dr. De Venecia. He took the time to actually listen to me and answer my specific questions about the mild Eustacian Tube Disfuntion that I have been experiencing for the last month. I have seen other ENT doctors that couldn't get you out of the office quick enough. Dr. De Venecia made me feel completely as ease with my situation and prognosis.
