I had discovered a dark colored nodule/lump on the right side of my tongue in late May of 2015. I was able to get a consultation with Dr. Jarrett shortly after my discovery. Dr. Jarrett and his staff were very polite, professional, and helped me to feel at ease about the situation at hand. Dr. Jarrett examined my tongue and suggested that he remove the spot on my tongue in an in office procedure which was completed on 6-19-2015, BX of Right Anterior Tongue. Highly recommend Dr. Jarrett & staff
Hickory, NC |
Dr. Jarrett's bedside manner definitely leaves something to be desired. He was not open to hearing what we, as parents, had to say about our infant son's condition. Any questions we asked were answered with an attitude that made us wish we hadn't spoke at all. That being said, our son's surgery went well.
in Morganton, NC |
For a long time I suffered from cracking and popping in my left ear and itching. After I had shingles, I could not get any relief from the itching and the cracking was still present. The itching got so severe it was impossible to even sleep on my left side. I made an appointment with Carolina ENT and saw Dr. Jarrett. He knew right away what was wrong and vacuumed my ear of debris on my ear drum and a prescription for the itching. In one week, my ear was well. I highly recommend Dr. Jarrett.
in Hudson, NC |
I had to wait 35 minutes in exam room. Was ok with his evaluation of my condition. He sent a scrip to pharmacy when I called to ask price it was $130.00 for a month the next day I called many times to ask for something my plan would cover and my pharmacy faxed 3 times with no reply. I am very unhappy about this. No I will not tell anyone to see him.
