He was not bad but I did feel like he was just checking boxes and not truly believing what I was saying.

Provider gave me the impression that he thought he was much smarter than me to the point it began to irritate me. He sensed that and changed up very quickly.

[...] Kudos to him for discovering an important flaw in a hearing test that a host of medical professionals had missed for over a year!

Could not have asked or recived better care. Above board explained everything to me so I understood the issue I was having with my ears. He checked out my ears, and used something (do not remember what he called it) ears felt better, He had me pick up meds to work on issue, and had me see him a week later to see how meds were working. Also told me that if my ears start to get another infection to call office and set up another appointment. The year before I was in there I was rushed through and no follow up was suggested. He is one to keep for the record cause with him around the health care system can inprove through U of R. I wish he could be permint with strong at u of r. I never meet him outside of u of r but he is the type of doctor some one could share issues of medical nature and not feel judge

Dr Tarek was exceptional. He made sure he had a complete understanding of what was happening with my ear and my concerns. He explained the purpose of all of the testing, and explained the outcomes in the context of my concerns.I felt heard and informed through the entire visit.
