I was specifically sent to this ENT doctor (who is a longer distance away) because I was told he had ENT test equipment that my local ENT doctor didn\'t have. Well he didn\'t use it anyway. Just moved my head from side to side, talked for a few minutes, then sent me on my way. What a waste of money!

I have been having a skin irritation for quite a long time & previous Drs had me stand in a enclosure that sent UV RAYS into my skin which really did not seem to help. The new procedures seem to be helping quite a bit.

Barry Casteneda was an awesome and caring PA. Went in to clean ear wax, I wear hearing aids and it was even hard to hear with volume turned high. He explained everything he was doing and even took me thru a diagram of the ear canal and what the ear wax did to impede my hearing. Wow, great doctor. I was impressed..

I have had chronic ear problems since childhood (too long to explain). Barry provides the best care for my ear, takes his time, also he answers every question I have. I have had horrible experiences over the years, Barry is the best.
