great nurses and doctor!
I will say it was a bit of a rush. He doesn't have a terribly complicated problem but I did find a bit that the nurse and dr. talked to me as if I already knew more than I did, but that's not necessarily a huge problem as I felt free to ask questions.
they helped my son in every possible way
It was a very pleasant visit and the doctor and I completely agreed on the plan of care to deal with my son's issue.
Dr. Stapleton made us feel very comfortable with the decision to have tubes placed. She listened to our concerns and made the decision very easy for us. She did an excellent job with the surgery. There were no issues with the surgery or recovery. She was wonderful at the post-op visit! Thank you!
Dr. Stapleton had an excellent demeanor with our young daughter. She instantly made her very comfortable. She took time to listen to our concerns and questions and was very successful in treating our daughter, who required bilateral myringotomy and tubes and adenoidectomy.
Dr. Stapleton is very good.
The entire visit was a pleasure, there is nothing I would change about our trip to your facility. Everyone that we I interacted with during our visit was amazing.
The wait time for the doctor to come in way entirely way too long! We arrived at 3:10 for a 3:30 appt. got registered and checked in, but did not physically see the doctor until 4:15.
she was great. very positive experience
I am extremely pleased with the care my child received at her appt with Dr. Stapleton. I am very grateful to the nursing staff for fitting my child in so quickly!
barley looked at her, didn't look at the X-rays stated completely different then another specialist very very bad experience
Thanks to Dr Stapleton, my daughter can finally breath and taste her food. she tells me every day how much better she feels and is thrilled to taste her food.
Dr. Stapleton and her staff were amazing
everyone that my family came in contact with that day was helpful, supportive, prompt & kind. thank you.
Throughout all our experiences with Dr. Stapleton she has been excellent! We are more than very fortunate to have had her care for / fix our child.
We waited a very long time for our appointment however it was a mistake and I am sure it was not made intentional. However the medical staff was extremely apologetic but the person who made the mistake could have cared less. We did not complain. The medical staff apologized because they truly cared. This would in no way prevent me from bringing my son back or recommending this practice. Dr. Stapleton and her staff were extremely professional and caring.
Doctor arrived in exam room almost an hour and a half after scheduled appointment time. For an appointment with a newborn we were told not to feed beforehand, that was disastrous.
We had a good experience at this appointment.
Our visit with Dr. Stapleton was outstanding. We saw her, as well as her PA, and they both were extremely compassionate and knowledgeable about my son's condition. Dr. Stapleton thoroughly answered our questions, and walked through our son's MRI results with us, something his ENT in Morgantown never did. I very much appreciated her care and attention to detail, and her explanation of the recommended course of treatment. I feel confident with her treating our son.
Dr Stapleton was extremely helpful in explain what was wrong and how we can correct it, she made my son comfortable and put me at ease. She did not rush us and while she was with us she focused solely on us.
At the time my oldest daughter was having a post-opt appt for ENT while my youngest daughter was having some nasal breathing issues. I was able to make an appointment right there at the office for her. just had the appt. and all the needs were addressed and we have a surgery scheduled to clear the symptoms. Thank You!
Dr. Stapleton and Nurse Kristen were excellent to work with and gave us more time and attention than we could have hoped for.
They treated us very well.
Dr. Stapleton was awesome! She tried everything possible for my daughter to avoid a trip to the ER for her ear.
this was a specialist visit & I am very pleased with having Dr Stapleton
Doctor Stapleton and her staff were excellent at our appointment yesterday. She went above and beyond to help my son and me with his health!
very good! my child excells at school now that my child can hear with the tubes. provider is very professional and knowledgeable
overall ok. however if a child begins to get teary eyed or cry during a visit in fear or anxiety, take time to talk to the child and see what his/her concerns are and why they are crying.
Everyone was very pleasant and wanted to make sure our daughter was comfortable and not stressed about what they needed to do to evaluate her.
very good with working with my son.
This provider was very attentive to my child's needs.
Dr. Staplenton was very nice and good with my son.
this was our first visit with dr Stapleton.. she was really nice and patience with my son. also very helpful to get him schedule with our next visit.
Dr. Stapleton was a good doctor she helped understand what was going on with with child. she would not leave me until I understood every she had to do.
Dr. Stapleton seemed very nice although it would have been more reassuring to me if I felt that she had reviewed anything about my child's history before our appointment. She did listen to our concerns though and was great with my son, I'm glad she's the one doing his surgery.
Dr. Stapleton is an amazing physician. Spent a great deal of time with me and is fantastic with my children. Could not ask for a better provider.
Dr. Stapleton is a lifesaver! She was able to assess and diagnose our daughter and get her into surgery quickly. At her follow-up exam she explained everything to our daughter in a manner that a 5 year old can understand and comprehend. Dr. Stapleton is the best! We're sorry we won't be seeing her again, but glad that she took such good care of our daughter that we won't need to see her again. Thanks again, Dr. Stapleton!
Everything went well
Not enough time. She went out for a hearing test and had me wait in the hall when the test was over all she said was it looks good have a good day and walked away.
She was very helpful and friendly .
Dr. Stapleton was very nice. She sat down with us and explained everything in a way that she didn't scare my daughter and made her feel comfortable about needing to have surgery. Both she and her staff were so kind. She explained everything that will happen during and after surgery. We left feeling good about her upcoming surgery and knowing that Dr. Stapleton is the best doctor to perform it.
We had a good experience.
she is a wonderful provider.
Dr. Stapleton was very kind and understanding. She built trust with me, and I appreciated that she listened about my other concerns and made recommendations for getting additional care for those concerns. I also appreciated that she acknowledged the hardships of having a child who is often sick and on too much medication.
It was my first experience at Children's ENT Department and with Dr. Stapleton. It was a very good experience
We adore Dr. Stapleton! She is great with our boys and takes very good care of our family
good experience, the provider is very competent and nice with patient
We had a great experience
Amanda Stapleton is the best. She always take to listen and explains things so that a person can understand what is happening or what can be expected to happen. I have recommended her to many parents and will continue to do so. My daughter loves the way she cares and explains things and is concerned what will happen when she can no longer see Dr. Stapleton. We both trust her completely.
Very professional with a caring attitude
Very thorough and offered alternative methods of treatment for nasal problems
providers in this office always make child at ease
We really liked her. she actually listened to what we had to say unlike the previous Dr.
Dr. Stapleton is knowledgeable and professional, yet personable and approachable. I can not speak highly enough about the care that we have received from her! She is a gem within the healthcare community!
Very nice experience overall.
This was the first time seeing Dr.Stapleton and she was excellent! Talked to not only my child like a person but also myself and answered all our questions we had in an understandable way. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an ENT doctor.
Our son had a Very good experience when he got his tonsils out. Before, during, and after his surgery.
the office whole staff were great with all of the patients
Amazing provider! So friendly and knows what she is doing. Interacts with the kids and explains things perfectly to the parents. Really shows she cares and loves what she does. Wonderful!
One of the best providers he has been to! Very personable and does a great job with the kids and professionally.
Dr. Stapleton really took the time to explain things to me and while she probably does a million tubal surgeries a week, she didn't make me feel rushed or like this procedure is no big deal. I appreciated her time and friendliness. She was great with Sophie as well. I was glad I got to meet her and that she is the doctor who will actually be placing the tubes.
