Patient Testimonials - Share Your Story
"My son first saw 'Dr. Steve' in 2010 shortly after his second birthday after a couple bouts with severe ear pain. The office was easily accessible and well organized. We have visited several times to see Dr. Shotts, my son has always been given a hearing test before seeing Dr. Shotts and often after to follow up on Dr. Shotts evaluations. Dr. Shotts has performed surgery on my son twice, each time we were well informed of how things would go. My son needs a final surgery this fall which despite my eagerness to restore my sons hearing to 100%, Dr. Shotts has had him wait till his Inner ear parts are large and developed enough to heal properly. I highly recommend Dr. Shotts who has been nice, patient, available, and helpful to my son's ear issues. He explains things so that anyone can understand." - Mitchell
