I thought I had an appointment for a consultation. Barry said that he would deaden my ear drum before he put in the tube. He swabbed and swabbed. never have I experience such pain. Then he said, "If you don't be still I can't do this. The nurse heard my screaming and came in. I was sobbing so she took my hand and told me to take deep breaths. I tried very hard. Again, I don't think the deadening worked ,if he put much on the swab, because I felt everything. I have NEVER experience anything like it. I will NEVER go to him again.

The Dr. was amazing, he treated my son with a sense of humor that made him very comfortable. Barry took his time and explained everything about my sons ear, he answered all of our questions. I will always be a BSW customer.

He showed concern but once discussion of what there thought was going on and the odds of my issues being anything else, we decided to forgot the procedure and see what the meds could do instead. He allowed me to make decision vs pushing me into doing something I was uncomfortable doing.
