Patient Comments (1)
in Cincinnati, OH |
My experience is nothing shy of wonderful. Being my first time meeting and seeing Dr. Rooney, I must say he is an excellent ENT. He, in detail, explained my situation to me. He, in detail, talked me through the procedure that was to take place. He made me feel very comfortable being in his care, and, most importantly, informed upon the completion of my visit. I am very satisfied with the treatment rendered.
