Dr. Early has performed 3 surgical procedures on my son and I highly recommend him. He has an outstanding bedside manner and is extremely personable. My son has recently gone back to him for severe congestion that his pediatrician and allergy doctor have not been able to fix. I drive across the mountain for my son to see him (about 30 minutes) when I could see a local ENT specialist right here at my hospital. He's worth the trip for sure!

Mother of Child with Prader Willi

Very Rude to my son. A nurse told him a lie about my son and when Dr Early came into room he grabed my sons face and tried to tell him he said something he didn't say. Didn't do nothing about why we were there for the appoint. This child has speech problems and the Dr. didn't care he kept trying to get my son to say something he didn't say. I heard what my son said and tries to explain but he wouldn't hear of it. Would not recommend anyone to go to this dr. The staff of this office is very unprofessional.

Excellent doctor

My young son has seen many, many doctors for a variety of health and developmental issues, and Dr. Early is, hands down, the best we've seen. He was incredibly fun and had my son (along with his two sisters who had to tag along) laughing hysterically within minutes. Dr. Early was knowledgeable but not arrogant, kind and not dismissive, and came into the appointment obviously prepared, having looked over my son's medical record prior to the appointment (a rarity). After taking the time to thoroughly examine my son and talk through the issues, he was able to clearly provide diagnosis and treatment, along with a helpful dose of reassurance that my son would be just fine. Excellent doctor! The wait can be quite long to get an appointment with him, but unless it's an emergency, the wait it worth it.
