25/04/14 4 3 2 3 I did not have a good experience with DR. Dick,I had lost my ear drum from an infection and frequent flying. I found Dr. Dick very arrogant and did not want to hear what i had to say it felt like I was the next in line. He told me he would enter through the ear cavity and it was simple he did it all the time.. when I woke up and got home i found out he had to make 3 inches cut behind my ear and fold it over to get better access. The surgery did not work, seemed like he was unprepared for a plan B when the ear cavity approach was not working. Being arrogant is fine till you don't bat 100%. Be humble don't stumble! My opinion is, he was in it for the money not my better good.. Find a plan B  Respond

04/01/13 4 2 1 4 He just will told you that you have no serious problems without any diagnostics. But if you want to solve your 'lightweight' problem we can arrange a surgery. +1 stars for I think he is a really good surgery speciallist (never tried but found in internet that he is very good at surgery).

26/11/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hoistad just happens to be THE BEST Otolaryngologist Surgeon in the State! My opinion? Yes, however I have gone through at LEAST 6 prior Otolaryngologist. Dr.Hoistad performed a surgery that consisted of reconstructing my right eardrum which 2 other Otolaryngologist's had previously tried and FAILED. Hoistad also placed a titanium bone in place of the bone that had been worn away. I had a massive hearing loss I wore my hearing aid on high and my TV turned up to 60. I am now 3 months post surgery, however within the first week I could actually hear again without my hearing aid! Dr. Hoistad GAVE ME BACK my ability to hear again! The are birds singing, I can actually hear the rain hit the roof, I can hear so well that I now know what people are saying! Oh,and the absolute best part of being able to hear again?...... I can now hear my disgruntled teenager when he walks away mumbling ;-) Thank you Dr. Hoistad for making my life so much better.
