The reviews listed below were collected independently of Piedmont Ear, Nose, Throat & Related Allergy through rater8. Each review represents an authentic and verified patient experience.

Dr. Jarboe was punctual and, ultimately, I think my visit will be helpful toward pinpointing a diagnosis after such a frustrating journey, but I felt like I was being interrogated during my visit. It’s been a long 14 months of trying to find out what’s wrong with me so I can regain my ability to communicate with confidence and I just don’t think doctors appreciate what patients are carrying when they walk through the door. I am fine with answering questions and clarifying answers, but tone matters. It would’ve been nice to be met with genuine concern or even curiosity, but I felt corrected and rushed. I felt judged for my answers: “Thick isn’t a feeling.” That may be true but “Tell me how “thick” feels” is another way to clarify without dismissing my attempt at explaining symptoms that have been so hard to explain. Before dealing with this condition, I may have discounted my feelings, but I leave doctors’ visits feeling deflated too often now not to say something. Just try to be kind.

Dr. Jarboe came in the room, introduced himself and asked what he was doing for me that day. I, of course, didn't know what he would do so he asked why I was there. I told him the symptoms I was having related to my ear. He said he didn't know what I meant. I tried to explain the symptoms, he still said he didn't know what I meant. One example...my ear feels raw. He said what do you mean. I said that when you have a sore throat and swallow, your throat feels raw, that's how my ear feels. He said raw is a word you use to describe a throat not an ear and he still didn't understand. I had been been to Urgent Care and my PCP before seeing him. Neither of those providers had any problem understanding my symptoms. I cannot have a doctor with whom I cannot communicate. I left very frustrated and upset.
