Dr. Petter was excellent working with me. She was caring, thorough about the hearing tests and very empathetic. It as a very professional office visit. She took the time to understand my concerns and what were my priorities. It was a pleasure seeing her.

Dr. Karen Petter is outstanding for my cochlear implant monitoring and tuning. She spent way more time than I expected to answer questions and was extremely helpful with using the attachments for the device. I'm really glad I chose the Cleveland Clinic for this procedure and follow-up. It truly has been life-changing for me.
