i just wanted to be yet another person to let you know that you are in great hands! my surgery was three years ago, and i am so grateful that i wound up at the house ear clinic. i was diagnosed on a monday morning, and because of the ginormous size of my tumor, my it was imperative that my surgery be performed immediately. the staff at house was incredible - changing schedules, etc. so that i could have the surgery performed 48 hours later!
dr. steffan did my pre-op and post-up check up, and he was thorough and (as someone else also mentioned) did my complete check-up himself. he has a great bedside personality - it was like i was being checked up on by a friend!
dr. steffan aside, the fact that you are having your surgery performed at the house ear clinic should put your mind at ease. they are world renound due to their staff, their professionalism, and the fact that they are on the cutting edge (if you'll excuse the pun) of ear-related problems.
again, you are in GREAT hands!!!!!
