As a surgery resident myself, I cannot truly convey how amazing Dr. Gubbels is. I have struggled from severe hearing loss for 30+ years. Today, at my post op appointment, my hearing was normal. He has truly changed my life, and even more so, he was amazing every step of the way. He always responded to my emails promptly, he sat down with me in pre op and thoroughly answered my myriads of questions, and he truly shared my excitement with me when I got my results. I would 110% recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Unfortunately I would not recommend seeing Dr. Gubbels. He was considerably late (which I understand) but then rushed me through my appointment given it was now towards the end of the day. The office was clean and the other staff members were very nice but for the 500 dollars I was charged, I was hoping for my allotted 1 hour appointment time.

Dr Gubbels treated our 6 yr old daughter's cholesteatoma. It was a lengthy surgery. He and his staff were phenomenal from start to finish! Not only was the cholesteatoma removed successfully, there were no negative side affects from the surgery. Plus, Dr Gubbels was able to fully restore her hearing with placing a prosthetic ear drum! What a blessing to our family and answer to many prayers!
