Patient Testimonials

Dr. Tompkins and his staff were wonderful. He answered all my questions and spent time listening to me. Went away feeling better too! Highly recommend.

- Tristan J.

Dr. Tompkins was very professional yet empathetic. He did not rush us and took his time to explain our options. On top of it Amanda was the best, she fought hard to get us an appointment before my deductible started over for the new year. And Bobbi- floating tech was very nice too. We are grateful for good service during a very stressful time!

I highly recommend Dr. Tompkins. He was very friendly and professional, and answered all my questions. The suggestions he gave me have really helped. The office staff was great too. We absolutely love Dr. Willett. He is very personable and takes time to explain procedures, conditions and treatment in a very easy to understand manner. He uses humor to lighten the situation. We don’t believe there is a better doctor out for us! Thanks Dr. Willett! You are the best!

I went to Dr. Tompkins because my CPAP was up to 19. Not only did I have trouble with that just going up and down steps and walking was difficult for me to breath from my nose. Dr. Tompkins was honest and said it was a difficult recovery and it was. But it was so worth it. My CPAP level came down, I can breathe through my nose and can even smell things that I haven’t been able to smell. Thank you Dr. Tompkins and his staff.

Have had wonderful experience with Dr. Tompkins at this practice and location. My boys both had ear tubes and every check-up was quick and helpful. The office is very spacious and clean and staff are friendly and efficient. Dr. Tompkins has been great with my kids. He performed an ear tube removal & patching surgery when one of my son’s ear tubes didn’t fall out on their own. Everything went smoothly and have had no issues. Highly recommend!

Ohio ENT has been a huge blessing to my and my family’s healthcare needs for several years. When our ENT and Allergist retired in the same year, we were needlessly worried about their replacements Dr Tompkins & Dr Goebel are awesome. I also feel the need to give a shout out to Beth who is fabulous and keeps me straight on allergy shots and to Gina the speech therapist. The front desk folks are very helpful. The nurses are very patient with administering the breathing tests… They are wonderful with our kids too! Would definitely recommend this practice.

Dr. Tompkins and his staff are amazing people. Dr. Tompkins did a surgery during the pandemic on my right ear that I had a cholesteatoma growing in my ear I could not hear anything I had 100% hearing loss in that ear. He restored my hearing to about 85% to the good. Which not only surprised me it’s surprised dr. Tompkins as well. LOL they are awesome people and I recommend them to anyone. Good job Ohio ENT Grove City.
