Dr. Branch is great. He sat and listened to what was going on with me and I felt like he had great advice for the healing process I was going through. I would recommend him to anyone. He also has great bedside manners. He explained the whole process to me in a way that made since. I will for sure see him for future needs.

Dr. Branch was very friendly and didn't make me feel like he was rushing through the exam. He got to the root of my problem but unfortunately it will take time before my ear is back to normal. That is not his fault. It was punctured when the nurse flushed out my ears to see if I had an ear infection since they could not see my ear canals. He was very thorough and knowledgeable.

Very, very nice. I just felt like a little more face to face time would be welcoming. There was minimal small talk and banter. Also, would have appreciated a little more explanation of the results from the "hearing test". (I realize that this was a medical appointment and not a social visit.) That being said, I wouldn't hesitate to see him again for any future problems.
