Two years ago I developed hearing loss, tinnitus and vertigo. I saw a local ENT. He was terrible. I made an appointment with Dr. Rauch.

He is truly insensitive about patients' feelings. He needs some communication and sensitivity...more

Dr. Rauch is not only unsympathetic, he is dismissive and rude. He was not prepared for our appointment. He thought we had last seen each other 7 years prior, when in fact, I had 4 appointment with him in the past 2 years. I pointed this out, he blamed his assistant; then asked me why I was there....more
