Dr Stapleton is a wonderful doctor. She is patient, thorough, easy to understand and is great with young kids. I never felt rushed and I felt that I had her full attention throughout the appointment. She explained the procedure my daughter will need and eased any worry we had. I highly recommend her!
the wait time to see ENT from the time we got back to the room is too long. many times we are waiting upwards of 30-45 minutes. with children that is just out right unreasonable
necessary steps were taken to do lab work to rule out any issues.
the only negative is that they were running 45 minutes behind our apt time.
We love Dr. Stapleton! She had played a vital role in both my twins lives as far as their health. We seen her both in clinic and surgery, and she brought to my attention diagnoses I had no idea about/concerns she had in regards to them. We trust her judgement and will continue to follow her with any other ENT issues. Thanks again Dr. Stapleton.
It was a quick, informative visit.
Dr Stapleton is amazing, understanding and listens to questions and concerns. We Love her!
dr Stapleton was very nice as always she listened to me was very good with my daughter
Dr. Stapleton is wonderful. Very thorough and kind.
Dr Stapleton is an amazing and caring doctor. As well as her Nurse Practioner. great team.
Doctor was very patient and attentive to my sons special needs.
I went to numerous PCP doctors around my area and every single one of them put me off but Dr. Amanda Stapleton listened to me and listened to my concerns. She is also correcting my son's issue, tongue tied, and the first available time she has. I have already recommended her to a co-worker who's grandchild has the same issue. I think she is a fantastic doctor and does an excellent job. She did my older sons nose surgery and did an excellent job on it. I find her to be very respectful to my concerns, is very respectful to me back and treats her patients with the utmost care.
we went to Dr Stapleton for a second opinion and to follow up on an ear tube check. she was absolutely wonderful. her bedside manner with our daughter was wonderful. it's challenging working with toddlers and she was very patient. when she spoke with us she was very thorough and listened to our concerns. she did not rush us or pressure us to make decisions on the spot.
everyone was so nice, and always respectful
it was a good experience.
his doctor was very informative.
very thorough and pleasant visit
She is very nice, explains everything well, and does everything to fix the problem very fast.
very friendly and good with my son. knowledgeable and helpful
This was our first time seeing Dr Stapleton for a problem-focused visit. She was extremely thorough and gave us answers that we needed. She listened to all of my concerns, even those that were not ENT-related.
loved Dr Stapleton she listened to all my concerns and explained everything!! highly recommend her she was amazing!!
More than 1hr wait to see a provider is unacceptable! Especially with young children /toddlers in a tiny uncapped office
Long wait in the waiting room over a half hour then waited an additional 20 minutes to see doctor.
Dr Stapleton is amazing with my daughter. I wish I had used her with my son!
Dr. Stapleton was very knowledgeable and reassuring of my son's condition. She spent time listening to what we had to say and listened to my concerns. I was very pleased with the care she provided my son.
i felt very reassured by Dr. Stapleton's care for my child as well as her medical expertise.
Dr. Stapleton is the best ENT doctor! She is so thorough and complete in her care and always explains everything very well. She especially makes the patients and family feel comfortable and is the only doctor my daughter ever took to as she is a super sweet person as well as a fantastic doctor!!!!
Wonderful office. I felt everyone from the medical assistant to the PA to the Dr were very caring and listened to everything carefully.
we are a new patient. I am very pleased with the thoroughness of the evaluation.
Dr. Stapleton and staff were excellent! She is the only medicial provider that really listened to my concern.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
she was warm, welcoming spoke to the child's comprehension level , answered questions succinctly and was professional and thorough
Dr. Stapleton provided me with the solution I was hoping for.
we love dr. Stapleton. very nice to work with and we feel safe in her care
I was very pleased with my child's experience with this health care provider.
Dr Stapleton was great! very friendly, easy to talk to, and took the time to listen to our concerns while making everyone at ease.
By the time we were seen it was 50+ min past our appt time. We were in this office for well over an hour which is completely unacceptable. By the time I saw a doctor my 1 1/2 year old was over it and not cooperative. I felt rushed and couldn't really talk to the doctor. I truly feel like it was a complete waste of time. I was highly disappointed with this experience and also anxious for over an hour trying to keep my baby calm and content.
Dr Stapleton was good and took to time to explain all details of my sons care.
we think dr Stapleton is amazing. she has wonderful bedside manners and is an amazing surgeon!! my daughter recovered quickly and without complication from both surgeries performed by Dr Stapleton.
we love Dr. Stapleton!! caring and compassionate!
The wait times for this office / provider have gotten out of control. We will be changing providers due to wait times well over an hour past appointments every time. It is hard for working parents to get time to begin with.
Dr. Stapleton is wonderful! She is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything very well. She is extremely good with our daughter who can be difficult. She is the best ENT doctor we have had yet!
Dr. Stapleton was amazing with our son. He has fear of doctors and she has really worked with him and us to help him over the last 6+ months. She took her time and even though he is a toddler, she talked to him and let him know exactly what was going on and did things on his time. She always answers all of our questions and it is clear that she is smart and thoughtful about his care.
dr was very sweet and compassionate
Dr. Stapleton is a very good listener and great with my son!
The doctor knew precisely what we needed to do and her expertise has paid off. My daughter can breathe so much better now. Thanks to the Doctor and the staff at Childrens Hospital.
It's hard to get appointments in the time frame needed. Our daughter needs to be seen in a month and we may not be able to get in for some time. The wait time in the room was a little tough as she was getting antsy. Would have rather let her stay in the waiting room where there were games.
we felt very comfortable with Dr. Stapleton and have scheduled surgery for our daughter with her.
Dr. Stapleton is a great doctor, very caring and personable
It was a pleasant visit! No concerns.
Dr. Stapleton knew my son's history and was very caring and compassionate about his health. She took the time to answer my question regarding medicines. She doesn't spend as much time in the room as some doctors but is very thorough and effecient with her time and ours. My only complaint is not with her but with scheduling to see her. Her schedule is tight and sometimes it took a long time for receptionists to return calls or squeeze an appointment in for us.
Dr. Stapleton is very understanding, a good listener, and doesn't make you feel rushed. Good rapport with my daughter (pt.), looks her in the eye and talks to her as individual. I appreciate it when drs. talk to my child first and foremost, to let her voice in her own words her experience --gives the child confidence and self-worth as a patient.
Dr. Stapleton and her staff were very friendly
The staff and nursing assistants were wonderful. The Dr was not. She did not have good bed side manner. She had no sympathy for the pain she put my child through. Just continued to say I'm barely touching you. No apologies, no consoling, no medication, just irritation when my child cried. She may be 10, but she is still a child. The office staff apologized and attempted to console my child, the Dr said nothing. After 4 prior attempts this visit was suppose to be the visit that we put her to sleep and had the object removed. Not happy with this doctor at all.
The doctor did an excellent job with the surgery and the follow-up
they are all very nice and excellent people dr staple
very professional and friendly!
Dr. Stapleton was very thoughtful and thorough with her examination and confirmed our concerns. She was efficient and cordial. The 3 other specialists and allergists we saw in the past did not actually look into the root causes as deeply as Dr. Stapleton did and that is what most impressed us.
Dr. Stapleton and her staff were excellent!
