Dr. McMenomey was my doctor at OHSU her in Portland for about 10 years- he then moved to NYU for about 3 years and then came back to the northwest at Swedish. I had some pretty bad experiences with other specialists during his absence for chronic ear disease with severe hearing loss. He had done some procedures on my ear and I trust him implicitly. I drive from Portland to Seattle to see him and that is fine with me. It's worth the 3 hour drive.

Dr. McMenomey was absolutely terrific in explaining my situation and how the treatment was to proceed. He took his time and answered all my questions thoroughly and kindly. I cannot believe anyone would call him pompous; he was exactly the opposite. He/his staff was able to get me in when the first ENT doctor realized my condition was not in his expertise, which was greatly appreciated since I had driven three hours for the appointment. I would highly recommend Dr. McMenomey to anyone!
His appointments are too quick and he does not explain thoroughly, but I trust him completely. I am a very difficult case and he did an amazing job with my mastoidectomy. He definitely knows what he is doing.

      Team oriented approach to complex skull base lesions

      Dr. McMenomey says...

      I treat all types of ear disease, skull base tumors and hearing loss. Treatments are tailored to be patient specific. Cochlear implants are a large part of my practice. The impact they can make on a patient's life are truly amazing. I offer micro surgery, radiation, and watchful observation in the treatment of skull base tumors such as Acoustic Neuroma and Meningioma
