Five Stars

Dr took excellent care of me during many sinus infections, including surgery. Dr. Severson also took excellent care of my son, and friends as well. He cares about his patients and goes the extra mile in maintaining the best outcome and after care. I highly recommend Dr. Severson.

Helpful and caring

I found Dr. Severson to be a helpful and caring doctor. He did a thorough exam, and explained his findings in understandable language. I have no idea why anyone would say he was arrogant, as I thought he was very personable. He did not prescribe unneeded antibiotics. The hearing test showed slight hearing loss at the high end of the spectrum, however he said hearing at the voice range was just fine and did not sell me expensive hearing aids I don't need. He suggested an over the counter antihistamine without decongestant (no decongestants allowed with glaucoma). I would go back.

Two Stars

Seems to have a god complex. Very poor bedside manner and his diagnosis contradicted what 2 other doctors have said. (Got a diagnosis from a second ENT after that visit, plus talked to my GP). Would not reccomend him.

Fluid in my ears - difficulty hearing

This was my 1st experience with an ENT. I assumed they all knew what they were doing and would care. WRONG. I've been treated several times including a tube in my right ear. I still have the same issues I walked in with. He does not encourage follow up of any kind. I had to ask. What next? No response. He charges $94 for a missed appointment but left 2 of us sitting in the waiting room 30-60 minutes past our appointment time without any explanation.
