Dr Stapleton is a great doctor! she is patient with young kids and she takes time to explain everything to parents. our daughter loves her!
she is always very attentive and thorough
I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Stapleton, she has a lot of patience. Dr. Stapleton took the time to explain what she was going to do and make my daughter feel comfortable. Dr. Stapleton explained to me what was going on and our next steps to proceed forward.

I expected to be there much longer but everything and everyone in the office was timely and efficient.

Dr. Stapleton is wonderful. She is extremely smart and we always have a game plan when we leave our appointments. She is patient and gives our kids the time to get comfortable before the exam.
Dr. Stapleton was very quick in releasing my son's tongue and lip ties, and it was also nice that she followed up after he nursed to make sure everything looked good.
She is always thorough and attentive
Provider was easy to talk to and listened to my questions and answered them. We waited over 30 minutes once in an exam room to see the provider that is a long time for a small child.
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.
Dr Stapleton is amazing, understanding and listens to questions and concerns. We Love her!
It was a quick, informative visit.
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.
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.
Doctor was very patient and attentive to my sons special needs.
everyone was so nice, and always respectful
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.
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 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. Stapleton is a very good listener and great with my son!
dr was very sweet and compassionate
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
