He seemed okay at first until he insisted on both appointments to do a nasal endoscopy. Basically it consisted of him numbing my nose with cotton balls to look inside. I was never informed this was a "procedure" and over the course of two 10 minute appointments I owed over $594. Insurance did not cover any of it. He is a scam and should notify patients this is probably not even needed. I told him my history of polyps and two prior nasal surgeries. He just wanted to make a quick buck because all he told me after he did the procedures, "was you have polyps". Oh wow, I already knew that. I'll never go back to an ENT like this ever again, unless I want to be absolutely broke. I can't afford his prices for doing absolutely nothing.

Dr.Barbell, cured my Tinnitus that I have suffered with ever since childhood, I can not thank him enough and for educating me on how to clean out my ear canals with equal parts vinegar and alcohol with bulb squeeze applicator and to never put soap and water in my ear canal. My insurance did not cover the eye dropper 1 once bottle of a steroid ointment that I paid for out of pocket and I am so happy I did because I am now cured and can hear again. Thank you so much Dr.Thad Bartlett.

Mesa, AZ – Apr 06, 2019
I highly recommend this office! Dr. Bartell is an excellent clinician. He listened patiently during my examination and the CT scan results verified what he found on examination. I was then referred to an excellent surgeon for follow up care. The office staff were kind and compassionate and tolerated my many phone calls. The whole office works as a team to provide the best caring and excellent care for their patients.

My first time seeing Dr. Bartell. Found him to be very pleasant and professional. Listened to what my problems were and seemed knowledgeable. However he had to send me to a vocal chord specialist to resolve my problem. Would highly recommend him.

Carol T in Phoenix, AZ – Sep 08, 2016
Dr. Bartell is a top doctor. Allergy's are difficult to treat and I have had problems my whole life. He fixed a problem with my Sinus 20 some years ago when he first started in Business and I remembered his name. I recently am seeing him for the same problem on the other side. He is a experienced and caring doctor. The staff is friendly and the wait is always reasonable.
