Love this doctor! So caring and down to earth. Really talks with his patients and makes them feel comfortable. Has amazing bed side manner which is so important. Travis is hard to get an appointment with because he is the only doctor in the SWFL area with his expertise in Neurotology. Highly recommend.

Dr.Pfannenstiel was great! On the very first visit I felt comfortable around him, he listened carefully and explained in detail what was needed to be done. I highly recommended him.

Dr. Pfannenstiel is excellent. He has a great chairside manner and takes the time to listen to his patients. I find Dr. P to be very caring and thorough. The only negative I have with the office is the front desk at check-in. They are extremely unfriendly almost to the point of being rude. They never smile or greet the patient. Always a frown on their faces. A friendly smile goes a long way. If they are that miserable with their job maybe it is time for a change.

He is an arrogant know it all doctor,who gives you a diagnosis before he even examined you and sticks to it even if there is an evidence to the contrary.He simply won't listen to you,assuming he knows better.He skips thorough examination of a new patient (doesn't exercise due care).Has no knowledge of rare diseases even closely related to his filed of practice.challenged the validity/s existence,of my symptoms.very quick to send me to a psychiatrist instead of considering differential diagnosis

Took the time to explain things in a manner in which we could understand. Made us feel confident in his abilities to restore my daughters hearing. He is very professional as well as his staff. Would not hesitate to recommend to others. Listened to all our many questions and took the time to answer them all.

Excellent experience. He listened, examined and explained what the issues were.
