Testimonials

You Saved My Life

Dr Danner,

You saved my life and I can never thank you for what you have done for me.  You have put up with me for a year almost and I know all the things I've been through didn't help my anxiety, but you and your staff have been wonderful to me.

I thank you for my voice to continue to preach God's Word and tell them miracles do happen.  God bless you and your family.

Cochlear Implants Have Made a Difference in My Life

Dear Dr Bartels,

Having worn hearing aids for most of my 68 years, I always found it necessary to lip read when conversing with another person.  Additionally, it was sometimes very difficult to carry on a telephone conversation.

Several months after both of my processors were activated, I am now able to hear what someone is saying without always having to read lips.  Conversing on the phone is still a little challenge, but this is also an improvement over what it was before.

Also, thanks to my cochlear implants, for the first time in my life, I am hearing sounds that I never heard before.  Distant rolling thunder; rain hitting the window; boiling water, these are examples.

The cochlear implants, without a doubt, have mad a big difference in my life.

I want to thank you and your staff for everything.

A Whole New World

Dear Dr Bartels,

Having this cochlear implant, a miracle that I never dreamed would occur in my lifetime, really opened a new world for me.  Thanks to you and your staff!

However I was blessed with wonderful parents who encouraged me to grow up in a normal atmosphere, despite of my hearing impairment.  Thus, I give them, especially my wonderful mother, all the credit in the world for the position in which I am now.  If they were alive now, they would have been beyond happiness about this miracle.

My family and friends have been so excited to be able to talk to me on the phone instead of the TTY.  Some of them have confessed how they hated it.  We've had a good laugh about it.  It has been absolutely incredible even!

Knowing that my hearing would never be perfect, I am contented and satisfied to have this opportunity finally.  Thank you so much Dr Bartels for deeply enriching my life to the fullest.

God bless you and your staff.

Gratefully yours,

M.M.

Its Been Only Days

Dear Dr Bartels,

Its been only three days since you performed the operation and stereophonic sound indeed!!  I'm hearing all kinds of noises which I haven't noticed in years -- what's this humming, what's that there -- is something wrong with the car?  No there isn't -- I can hear!!!

Thank you, thank you so very much.  You have changed my life.  I'm so grateful.  You'll be in my prayers always. God bless you.

Sincerely,

S.B.

One Year Gone By

Dear Dr Bartels,

Today is one year that B. has been hearing - and we wanted to thank you again for making that happen.  There has not been a day that has gone by that we haven't felt so blessed and been so thankful for you and the true miracle you gave to our family.  B. is doing great - he has been assessed to be doing and saying everything a hearing child would at his age.  Thank you again - we love you.

Adnoidcystic Carcinoma

Dear Dr Danner,

Back in January you diagnosed me with reoccurring Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma.  At the time you told me that I would lose the nerves in my face.  This distressed me greatly.  Right before going into the operating room you once again told me I would more than likely lose the nerves.  Well the genius that you are you stopped removing tumor because it was in the nerves.  It is a slow growing tumor and we would do radiation and hope for the best.  Well here it is 7 years later and the tumor has not grown.  There is a hearing aid out called the BAHA.  Because you saved the nerves I am going to receive this hearing aid.

I just wanted to write to you and Thank You so very much for being so concerned for me and my feelings.  I am now going to be able to hear again!!!  I just think you are the BEST DOCTOR there ever was or will be! I wish more doctors were like you!

Very sincerely,

N.C.

No More Ear Plugs

Dear Dr Danner,

Thank you so much for fixing my ear.  You don't know how much I appreciate it.  I took a shower without a earplug the other day for the first time since I was 2 years old.  It is so nice.  I am so happy that I don't have to worry about being embarrassed wearing ear plugs.  Thank you again.

Accurate Diagnosis

Dear Dr Danner,

I just wanted to thank you again and let you know how grateful I am to be able to hear so well.  Your diagnosis was quick and accurate.  I truly appreciate your knowledge and skills and how lucky for me you were able to remove the cholesteatoma and rebuild what was necessary all in one surgery.

I had a wonderful summer with our grandchildren and family.  We had numerous get togethers and it was much easier to follow the conversations.  I can hear on the phone again with my left ear and that too is a blessing.

Best of wishes to you, your family, practice and patients.  God bless.

Sincerely,

J.M.

Successful Cochlear Implant

Dear Dr Danner,

Sincere appreciation for your compassionate spirit and caring manner in handling my surgery and recovery.  I praise God for the marvelous success of my cochlear implant and leading me to His chosen physician to perform the miraculous procedure.  I have prayed 34 years for God to bring healing to my ears and I am in awe that He has answered my prayers in a way I could not have ever imagined! May the Lord continue to bless you as you faithfully use the skills and gifted abilities He created you with to bring healing to patients.

With a grateful heart,

I Can Hear

Dear Dr Bartels,

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I can hear!  After seven years with a hearing aid, I had not even imagined that my hearing might ever be restored.  I had assumed that my hearing would continue to decline and hearing aids would need to become more powerful.

When I learned that a stapedectomy would "fix" the problem in my ear, I thought it was too good to be true.

But here I am... three weeks after the surgery... hearing beautifully with no hearing aid.  To me, it's a miracle.  Most of all I'm happy for my family... my husband, children and grandchildren.  I hear them now... the first time.  They were wonderfully understanding and patient with me before, repeating so many times... but I'm grateful that I no longer need to impose on their patience in that way.

Through your skillful surgery, you have blessed our whole family.  What a grand way to begin the New Year!

Gratefully,

J.S.
