I have been a patient of Dr. Emery's for many years. I find that regardless of what my medical issue is, he listens to me and actually hears what I have to say. I see him treat his patients with kindness, from the children I see in the waiting room to the geriatric like myself. I highly recommend him.
Dr Emery is top of the Mark!! He was so kind and considerate. So lucky I found him when my right ear was plugged up. Such a kind, considerate Doctor. I highly recommend him.
Dr Lautman is an absolutely wonderful doctor. He is kind, compassionate, and so very knowable. He takes his time and explains everything so I can understand. There may be a bit longer wait, but it is worth the wait, He spent so much time with me. I cannot say enough good about him.
Dr. Lautman was recommended to me for sinus problems. I have had the problem for many years and have seen many different doctors. Dr. Lautman addressed all of my concerns and options. I chose to have surgery for this problem and am happy to say, it was a great success. I feel better than I have felt in years. Dr. Lautman is a kind and compassionate physician. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Hegewald is a wonderful doctor. So friendly kind and very knowledgeable. I have been seeing him for many years He has treated numerous family members of mine and they all say the same thing. I highly recommend Dr Hegewald.
Dr. Hegewald is amazing! Starting in May I started getting dizzy with fullness in my ears and head. I went and saw an ENT in Burien who barely let me get 2 words out before be immediately diagnosed me with Menieres. No tests or anything. He started me on several rounds of oral steroids and I was getting worse and worse. I started to lose faith and got extremely depressed with this incurable disease. I wanted a second opinion so I looked on health grades and found Dr. Hegewald. My first visit with him was in his Federal Way office. He was personable, polite and most importantly he listened. He told me he doesn't think it's Menieres and there are several tests to rule it out. He gave me hope. He scheduled my tests and within 3 weeks I was able to get in and get them done and rule out what I was initially diagnosed with. I've been feeling so much better and I feel like I'm getting my life back. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Emery was amazing - he was patient and very knowledgeable about my sinus issues. He started off with the most non-invasive option to treat the problem in my nose and only when it was VERY apparent that it wasn't going to work did we start talking about potential surgery. And even then, he wanted to do the most minimal amount there too. He's very conservative in his treatments when it comes to taking drastic measures. He is very thorough in his explanations and is very good at making complicated ideas easy to understand. His office runs on time or very close to on time. When I had surgery, he was running a bit behind, but for surgery, you would expect that. I'd rather surgeries are safe and successful rather than rushed.
I have seen Dr. Lautman for over 25 years, primarily for sinus and hearing issues. He also has helped many of my friends who have seen him over the years. He is an amazing Dr. and sees things that one would never expect and helps with the issue. While I moved away from the Auburn area, he is the one doctor I still see on occasion. Thank you Dr. Lautman, for so many years of help.
Dr. Stern is the best doctor Ive ever come across. I am a freshman in college, and I kept on getting strep throat throughout my first year at University of Montana. I was in so much pain and I didn’t know what to do. Me and my parents started to ask around, to see who the best ENT surgeon was. We had several of people say that Dr. Stern is the best ENT surgeon around. And they were right, I’m currently on day 10 of getting my tonsils removed. I had a little bleeding because my scabs were falling off (totally normal). And me not really knowing that I called his office @11pm. Typically when you call other doctors that late they won’t answer. But not Dr. Stern, he picked up right away and calmed me down. He told me what to do and how to stop the bleeding. And of course the bleeding stopped. He is the nicest, funniest, and most caring doctor. He truly treats you like family. I highly recommended him, and his staff is AWESOME! Thanks doc.
Dr Stern is the best doctor I have ever seen in my life, and I have seen a lot of doctors. He listens with intent and purpose. He does his Due Diligence with your issues. He gives you all of your options and explains everything to you in simple understandable terms. He makes you laugh when you want to cry about your ENT issues. He is a REAL DOCTOR in every sense of the words. I wish he were a family doctor so I could see him more. He is so awesome they haven't invented a word to describe his greatness! His superior care puts all other doctor's to shame. Thank you Dr Stern! You changed my life for the better!
