How was your experience with the doctor?I’ve been battling a debilitating inner ear condition that impacts my balance greatly. I went in to see this doctor with a recent audiology report, imaging results, imaging discs, and notes from prior physicians. All of these back up my complaints. I start describing my disequilibrium symptoms of instability, ears feeling blocked as if in a plane 24/7, fluid in ears, and “spacing out” whenever I’m in a crowded place or an area with a lot of noise. This gentleman interjects immediately with great excitement to point out the “spacing out” in crowds has nothing to do with the inner ear. He really wanted to get a “win” for some reason when I’m there to address my condition not get into a contest. I contemplated leaving but figured I might as well stick it out at this point. I go on to explain why I am there. Another ENT pointed out to me that a CT scan showed I may have an inner ear fluid leak, and I should follow up with a neurotologist to see one way or another. This man becomes filled with glee once again as he tells me that condition can’t be diagnosed via ct scan. I explain it was suggested in the radiology report and I’d like to rule it out or confirm it as I do have the symptoms that would be consistent with the diagnosis. Instead of telling me he’s not familiar with this sort of thing and referring me elsewhere like he should, he starts making statements that are simply not true. Saying that a perilymph leak must be accompanied with hearing loss(which I do not have) and spinning vertigo(also do not have). The doctor fails to grasp logic at a very elementary level. He believes that just because he has seen SOME cases before with both hearing and vestibular symptoms, then ALL MUST suffer with both components. He states that the chronic imbalance and unsteadiness I suffer from is not consistent with the perilymph leak. He then prints me out the symptoms from VEDA and realizes/admits it is consistent but has a tough time believing I could have it with no hearing issues. I looked down and informed him I will be seeking help elsewhere after exchanging pleasantries.

How was your experience with the doctor?The office canceled the appointment on one hour’s notice. I had scheduled the appointment due to an immediate need and the earliest they could reschedule me for was almost two weeks away.

How was your experience with the doctor?Great doctor. Got me in for a hearing test right away, diagnosed the problem and went over several options for treatment (ironically enough including doing nothing). No pressure. Listened to what I had to say and my concerns.

How was your experience with the doctor?I visited Dr. Sillman about my tinnitus, for which he suggested I try meditation and white noise. He was friendly though I saw him only briefly. His PA (a Tufts student I think), his audiologist, and his administrative staff, whom I spoke with more at length, were also very friendly. The entire thing took about an hour and 45 minutes (including a hearing test), which was about what I expected. Overall I would recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?This office is great. Dr. Sillman is knowledgable but his expertise is mostly the ear. I had to be referred to a throat specialist so it might help to know that everyone here is very specialized.

How was your experience with the doctor?Less than warm bedside manner and did not take the time to answer any questions. He ordered an mri and never explained why/for what purpose. All he said was to “check things out”. To me a good doctor should ask, “do you have any questions?” Takes a few moments to explain what they are doing and why. I could barely get a word out before he hustled out of the room.
