Dr. Oliver is terrific. Professional. Caring. Able to explain things very well. Efficient.


No question I asked was tostupid for DR. Oliver He answered all my questions and so I knew just what he was saying. HE even let my husband come in to hear it for himself. Other family members had been feeling I was just saying I was having hearing problems even with 2 hearing aides so I did not have to deal with certain things. DR Oliver said he has heard other people say family wont believe you hear as you do. It made me feel less stupid about things.


Dr. Oliver was very professional and a good teacher of neurolsensory hearing deficiency. also Jamie Hampton was excellent in testing my inability to hear high frequencies.


He was so sweet and gentle with my daughter. She was able to stay calm with the whole procedure.


I found *Dr. Oliver condescending and even rude. I also had the feeling he was a bit insulted with my problem - as if it were beneath his expertise.


Dr. Oliver is very concerned and knowledgeable. Easy to talk to and get information. He is an excellent surgeon. Does great work, we are fortunate to have him.


Very good.




Dr. Oliver was the first doctor (after being seen 4 times for the same issue) that listened and wanted to help get me out of pain.


*Dr. Oliver is the best.


Care Provider could not have been better


Very thorough w/his exam, our referring dr. had us worried, but *Dr. Oliver didn't seem at all worried.


Dr Oliver treats me with kindness & respect. He showed & explained MRI gave me info. I am very thankful he is my doctor.


*Dr. Oliver very caring, informative.


He was HONEST with me and didn't try doing things he thought was unnecessary. New - young & will be EXCELLENT doctor.




Dr. Oliver performed my stapedectomy and I have had great results and the overall care was excellent.


Dr. Oliver was recommended to us by Dr. Dale Brown, so our expectations were high, and we were not disappointed. We learned quite a lot from our brief time with him.


Dr Oliver was very thorough, took time to answer my questions and was very empathetic about my significant loss of hearing. I simply cannot rate Dr Oliver high enough!


I have already recommended Dr. Oliver and his services to others and I can not sing his praises loud enough as I believe he and his skills were instruments that God used to work the miracle of my hearing being restored.


Dr. Oliver is skilled, to the point, and compassionate. I wish all health care providers were like him.
