I could not speak above a whisper when I first saw him. I would highly recommend him!!

I honestly wish Dr Keith was a general physician so I could just see him for everything! It's nice to have a Dr that looks you in the eye and listens instead of typing while only hearing parts of your conversations. I would highly recommend you seek him out if you need a GREAT ENT specialist.

HORRIBLE DOCTOR. If you can see someone else i HIGHLY recommend you do. Was extremely brusk and unpleasant. I had a small painful mass beside my nostril and he kept pushing on it over and over again even though i told him it was painful. And he said it was nothing and everyone had a lump there and i went somewhere else and found out it was an abscess!! One of the worst medical experiences in my life.

Dr. Keith was very friendly and thoroughly explained surgical and non-surgical options for my recurring sinus infections. He took the time to answer all of my questions and was very professional. I would definitely recommend Dr. Keith to family and friends.

There is no better ENT doctor. Dr. Keith has treated me and my family for over 13 years. He recently repaired my son's broken nose he received in soccer match. Dr. Keith performed surgery on myself in 2004. I am preparing now for the removal of a tumor in my sinus cavity. You will not find a more knowledgeable, caring, skilled, and above all very approachable physician than Dr. Scott Keith.

Dr Keith is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. He is thorough in his assessments and surgery. Two of my family members have had surgery by him and I would trust him to do surgery again. I would highly recommend him.

My wife and I both have been having an ongoing problem with our left ears. I wear hearing aids and she doesn't. Dr. Keith quickly diagnosed that I had a fungal growth do to my hearing aids keeping out the light and keeping it moist. He removed the growth and I left hearing normally compared with hardly hearing at all in my left ear. His expertise made for a very short and highly profitable appointment. I have read a couple of complaints about the cost but how do you put a price on your hearing.

Will never recommend him. No personality. He rushed through the visits, talked down to us when we asked questions (as if we were asking "stupid" questions). Multiple follow ups, hearing tests, and tube surgery, and my daughter's problems still not resolved. Possible money ride??? Find someone else....

Do not recommend. Talked over me and did not listen to what was going on with my ear and sinus problems. Rushed through exam. Symptoms come and go. Unfortunately the day of my appointment I had no symptoms. I had been to a clinic several times over the past several weeks and had ear infection and fluid in my ears. Dr Keith told me it was impossible for the fluid to be gone from Sunday to Wednessday. He is arrogant. Today was a waste of my time and money. Had to wait over a hour.

Excellent! Takes plenty of time to explain whathe he's doing and what he will do. Very caring and committed.

Did not like both visits with him. He did not take time to listen. Gave smart remarks when I was telling him my symptoms. He kept saying that was something I need to tell my doctor. Well he was the specialist in Ear, Nose and Throat he is suppose to be the one answering the questions. I wasn't there for my feet or back. I have a throat problem. A waste of hard earned money and all I got was smart remarks and still in pain.
