Ratings for Dr. Monty V. Trimble
I wasn't happy when I first was referred to him in 2011. Referred to him again, I thought I'd give him a second chance. The office is run poorly. I waited OVER AN HOUR by myself until he walked in (and then saw him very briefly), the instructions he gave me were also very poor. You feel like you're just a number for him, a number he has very little time for.
Never!! Do NOT EVER go see this arrogant, dumb, do not care Dr. He didn't even do hearing test, when I definitely complained of hearing pain & problems, then said talk to Uncle Sam and the White House if you want any samples!!! REALLY? He even brought some unknown man into the office, both of them dressed like they just left the gym.
I took my husband here. I filled out all his paperwork. they did give us some samples to save money but the samples didn't help. I called back later to ask some questions and the woman on the phone had no problem talking to me about my husband. several weeks later I called back to schedule and appt and the woman on the phone said because i wasn't listed on his paperwork, I couldn't schedule the appt. I filled out the paperwork...I KNOW I put myself on there. Besides I have never had a doc office not let me simply schedule an appt. Then instead of being friendly about it she pushed the hold button and never came back. He has lost our business.
After two rounds of antibiotics prescribed by other doctors for a "sinus infection" and 2 months of not breathing out of my right nostril, I went to Dr. Trimble to try to get some relief. I had a CT Scan done prior to my appointment so we could discuss it during the appt. On my initial appointmentvisit, he spent an incredible amount of time with me discussing my scan, my breathing/nose problems,and answering my questions. Dr. Trimble said the surgery would take place on the right side of my nose, but that if he saw something that needed correcting on the left side during surgery, he would do that. Well, I had my surgery and Dr. Trimble removed the mass and fixed the right side septum. He said the left side was fine and did nothing to that. I appreciated his conservative approach. Dr. Trimble spent a lot of time with me on my follow up appointment, as well. I never felt rushed. He is a great ENT and I feel much better thanks to him!
After paying 200 dollars for a ct scan I was told that I was a perfect for balloonplasty but my insurance wouldn't cover it. I got a second opinion and was told the ballon would do nothing for me I have maxillary hypoplasia on the left side. Which means my left maxillary sinus never developed. Funny thing is I was not told that by Dr Trimble yet the other Dr used the same CT scan I paid Dr Trimble $200 for.
During my initial visit, Dr. Trimble spent very little time in the room with me (3-5 minutes max) and only repeated everything the practitioner already said. I had a previous medical issue that him and his staff were aware of and they went ahead and scheduled me for a tonsillectomy. The day of my surgery, I spent 3 hours waiting in the hospital bed only to have a nurse tell me that because of these issues, I could not have my surgery and that Dr. Trimble had left the hospital already without ever speaking to me. His staff only made excuses for his discourtesy, stating he had other patients, but if he had time allotted for the surgery, he had time to speak to me. Suffice to say I will not be going back to Dr. Trimble nor would I recommend him to anyone. I would rather spend my time and money on a doctor who took the time to take care of his patients.
A friend of mine referred me to dr. Trimble after she had a balloon procedure done in the office. She kept raving about how much better she felt. I was desperate for help, so I went in as well. I was thoroughly impressed and decided to have a balloon dilation in the office as well. 6 weeks later and i feel so much better. I can breathe better without sinus Infections.
I have had sinus/allergy issues for years. Other Drs had recommended major surgery, but Dr Trimble offered me an alternative. He did a new balloon dilation procedure in his office. My results have been amazing. I don't have sinus infections anymore...I haven't felt this good in years!
I am a Breast Cancer survivor of almost 18 years! I had a Bone Marrow Transplant and then radiation. Both the radiation and chemo had lasting effects. The radiation scarred my lung and I was prone to bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma. Because of recurring sinus infections, infection kept draining into the bronchial tubes...and, I had bronchitis, or even pneumonia! Dr. Trimble recognized and took care of the problem, although we had to reschedule surgery twice because I would get sick at the last minute! Since the surgery (3+ mo.), I have been well! No bronchitis, pneumonia, throat infections....nothing!!! His staff is very understanding, polite, and helpful. Dr. Trimble changed my life!
I had sleep apnea and chronic congestion for years. I saw Dr. Trimble and we discussed a turbinate reduction ("turb") and decided to give it a try. Results were amazing! He did the procedure in his office with local anesthesia. My insurance did not cover the wand used for the turb, so that was my only out-of-pocket cost. I have been very pleased with the results -- I no longer need a CPAP to breathe while I sleep, I am sleeping better, congestion is rare (instead of constant), and migraine episodes have decreased by 80% or more. Dr. Trimble has been helpful, personable and provided lots of ideas and information regarding my condition.
