I have been seeing Dr May for a long time off and on as I needed and he is the best ENT I have ever seen. I had lost a lot of the hearing in my left ear and most of it in my right ear when I came to him this time. I had been referred to another ENT years ago and was having a problem again when i was referred back to that doctor. I told the office to set me up with Dr May and it was the best move I could have made. Dr May had/has me hearing better than I have in years. He is a wonderful doctor and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.

*Dr May is by far the best doctor!

7/21/2017

my expectations were to get overall help for conditons from vestibular neuritis, including headaches and pressure,slight dizziness at times, stuffy ears, tininitus, and hearing loss. Dr May was excellent in discussing the hearing loss, and bringing in excellent audiology assistance. I need help in finding specialty assistance for the other issues.
