Beware!

I had to walk out. Don't waste your time unless you like to be verbally abused. I never leave reviews and my experience was so bad I felt others needed to know. First he didn't show to my appointment. Stuck me with the nurse practitioner which just gave me the generic run around. Asked for the doctor and they decided he was at lunch. I waited and he showed up an hour later clearly ticked off I wanted to see him. Argued with me when I tried to explain my issues, told me "I really didn't need to be diagnosing myself now do I" when I was merely trying to explain my problems. I had to get up and walk out finally when he told me quote " you just need to do what your told". (Talking about what his nurse had told me). I have never in my life been disrespected by a doctor in this manner. Arrogant, rude, and disrespectful to patients. Don't waste a dime on this guy. Check other doctor rating sites reviews and you will see several others stating this same thing. Beware!!!

Horrible experience!

Dr. Trimble placed tubes in my 13 month old son back in July. I have to say, at the time I was very pleased with him and how he handled a concerned mom. Today was my first time back in his office since the surgery, and wow.. it was like a completely different man. I was told after surgery to come back into the office before cold season so he could check to see the tubes were still intact. So I did as he said. Dr. Trimble had us waiting in the exam room for over an hour and offered no apology. When we finally saw him he was clearly agitated and rude. The way he spoke to his staff was degrading and very uncomfortable to watch. He told me I shouldn't have even brought my son in, and next time take him to his regular pediatrician. He did not answer any of my questions and couldn't even tell me of the tubes were still intact. Had I known this man was such a jerk, I would've never paid him for a $5,000 procedure on my toddler son!!! I will not be returning here for his next hearing test and will never recommend this man to anyone. His alpha male, degrading approach to his staff truly bothered me enough to leave a review.

Three Stars

Dr Trimble is very friendly and knowledgeable, however, I feel the office could be run more smoothly. I was told I could have my polyps removed in the office, but when I showed up for my procedure, I was told that I couldn't have it done in the office unless I had another procedure that the doctor recommended as well. The doctor seemed concerned about his costs and how the insurance would pay. I think someone else at his office should handle his costs and expenses and work out a system with him, so that he can totally focus on healing. I have decided not to have the extra procedure or the polys removed there.

Feeling Cheated

Dr. Trimble himself seems like a nice enough doctor, really explains things and is easy to talk to. Uses a lot of technical jargon, and I guess just assumes you have an idea what he's talking about, but other than that easy enough doctor to deal with. My complaint and reason why I'm not going back has to do with his staff, they're con artists and hopefully Dr. Trimble isn't the one training them how to scam their customers. A couple months ago I had some congestion went in to their office, and they kept pushing me to get an MRI. They lied and said most insurance cover the MRI because its done in office and would fall under your office co-pay. They even called my insurance company for me (never should've let them do that, I should've called myself, I was naive). They then told me Blue Cross said they would cover the MRI, so I agreed to do it. A couple weeks later I get a bill from Trimble for $194.84 for the MRI. I called their billing lady and explained what the nurses told me when I came in and she told me to call Blue Cross. I did and Blue Cross told me the nurses lied to my face, an MRI is never covered under a co-pay. I called Trimble's billing lady back, she doesn't care they lied to me and says I signed an agreement saying I'd pay what insurance didn't...I stopped her right there, I know what I signed. I was hoping she'd at least talk to the nurses who lied to me or call Blue Cross, but whatever, I paid the bill and will not be going back to Trimble's office ever again. It's not even the money, had I known it was $200 for an MRI before, ok fine if I needed it I needed it, but no way I'm going somewhere that lies to my face to try to scam dollars out of me and my insurance company.

Amazing Difference

After years of not being able to smell, within weeks of the Balloon Sinusplasty I began smelling gradually. Along with my smell, I began to taste foods again. It brought tears to my eyes the first time I tasted something. Considering these two senses go together, I had just thought I would never smell or taste again. Smell and taste continue to improve daily. I can't thank Dr. Trimble enough. He and his staff are truly amazing. If you have severe sinus infections, don't put this surgery off. After years of suffering, life has taken a major up-swing. I'm learning smells and taste all over again. I don't regret for a moment having this done.
