I had seen Dr.Earhardt before and very happy to have him take care of my issues again.

Dr. Erhardt was very thorough & spent a time with me to make sure I understood everything. He even asked if I had anything else going on & I did & we discussed that as well. He was very patient & caring. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Erhardt told me exactly what to expect after surgery. I felt comfortable knowing what was to come, instead of being blindsighted. He's a great doctor!

Excellent Experience

Dr. Erhardt is always so nice and friendly and explains everything to us. Great doctor!

He was such a great Doctor!

Probably the most enjoyable experience with a provider I have ever had.

Was spot on with diagnosis. Only concern is nose remainsstuffy and headache still there daily. Giving it time with his instructions.

The jury is still out on Erhardts wait-n-see approach. He didn't seem like a not caring person,and he actually seemed like a great guy. He just didn't give me alot to chew on. I even got words of encouragement. And I definitely dont want to sound like i wanted unneeded medication. I just feel as though the meet up with Dr Erhardt was a bit rushed. It felt like the complications of my issue, and ways to deal with it, werent explored deeply enough. I got a mini-brochure from the audiologist i saw right before him. Speaking of which, All of his staff from his front desk, to his nurses, to that audiologist, [...], were actually really great, professional, and caring. I actually really like the indepth way Dr [...] went over my issues. If anything, i got more out of my encounter with her than anything. I just dont know yet if this helped. I was, however, encouraged that my issue will become more manageable...if not possibly go away all together. I just wished i had spent more time with Erhardt/OR that he seemed a bit more invested. I whould have loved to at-least been given a possible follow up date. 3 months down the line, im sure my perspective will be different. [...]

I just feel he did not really give me answers to hearing loss. Normal hearing loss. Pay more attention to people when they are talking is the correct answer. No answer for why I can not hear TV without turning up real loud

He did not deliver to my expectation as a ENT surgeon and specialist.Secondly my first visit he told me i will have surgery and all of a sudden he sarted telling me stories and without any precribtion
