The staff was super friendly and helpful.
The nurse was very thorough and definitely made one feel comfortable.
The doctor was pleasant and preformed my ear cleaning using state of the art equipment with no pain whatsoever. He gave me options of services his office provides. The doctor was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. The wall hanging on the wall was a great graphic to show percentages of likelihood of having a hearing loss.
Overall it was a great experience!!

I am a returning patient to Dr Stephen Dent and I am as impressed today as I was last year . He addressed my concerns, and after examining the area of concern I feel reassured. The staff is very pleasant and welcoming. It is a very nice comfortable office. Dr Dent was recommended by my family physician whom I have the highest regard and trust, I would also recommend Dr Dent to family and friends.

EXCELLENT support staff, excellent doctor, excellent physicians assistants! From the moment you step in the door you know you’re going to be taken care of properly! Excellent support with making appointments, Short wait time, and expertise that I haven’t experienced in a very long time! So happy to know there’s still a doctor’s office & physician out there who is thorough, who cares, has an entire staff who cares, and does an excellent job! Thank you! Highly recommended by another trusted physician of mine - I am so grateful to know about San Diego Ear, Nose & Throat Speciatlists!👍⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was my first visit. Friendly and professional. The audiologist was attentive to any questions I had and took the time to explain the procedure of each test. Follow up appointment with Dr was very thorough and he went over each of the test results taking the time to explain treatment options available for any hearing loss. Overall experience was very pleasant and medical treatment was excellent!

I have been a patient of Dr Dent for many years. Very thorough, caring, and professional. The first Dr in years to see that my issues may be an autoimmune issue. I trust I'll be well taken care of and I truly do recommend that you can trust him too!!!
