We scheduled an appointment for a hearing screening 4 weeks out, received our confirmation email for the date and time of the appointment, even had conversations with the staff regarding the purpose of our visit over the phone. However, when we showed up the morning of our appointment, we were informed that the audiologist was at the airport on her way to Virginia and that no one was aware of our appointment, despite seeing it in their appointment calendar. Our son was out of school and both of

Dr. Shirley is amazing, performed adenoid and tonsil removal and came in prior surgery to make my 5 year old feel better and to check on us (the nervous parents). He also came in after surgery to give us an in person review of her surgery! If we had to do surgery again, hands down he would be our surgeon.

Very kind hearted and knowledgeable. I drive my daughter 2 hours just to use Dr. Shirley. Once I met him, I will not go to anyone else. My daughter has had 2 surgeries with him and he was sure to explain every little detail. He spoke with us before and after the surgery even though he was pressed for time.

The most compassionate Dr I have ever dealt with. His level of concern and his skill and knowledge while caring for my daughter has been unmatched. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an ENT for their child.
