Dr. Loochtan is professional, knowledgeable and caring. I am grateful that Dr. Loochtan saw me on a Friday late afternoon and after examining me knew how to treat me. His care did not stop there, but continued on with me at the hospital on Saturday and Sunday. My family and I appreciate Dr. Loochtan and will forever be grateful. Thank you.

I have been seen by various ENT physicians since I was a teenager, which is over 20 years. My daughter has also been seen by them. Currently, I was plagued, again, by ear pain and nose bleeds for a while and Dr. Loochtan not only listened to my unique situation, but solved my issues! I would definitely recommend this practice to ANYBODY! Thank you so much Ohio ENT Physicians for always having my back!

My wife has been a patient of Dr Loochtan’s for a year or two and she really likes him, so when I needed an ENT, he was the obvious choice. I can see why she likes him! He takes the time to listen, is very thorough, and has a great sense of humor to boot! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Loochtan!

Dr. Loochtan was amazing!!! He helped me with the hoarseness in my voice and was EXTREMELY patient and nice when performing the scope of my vocal cords (I am usually terrified when I go to the doctor, but he was very calming). I recommend him 100%! My experience with Dr. Burkhart, has been very good. He conducts himself in a professional manner, is always courteous, listens well and takes the time necessary to understand my concerns and/or needs. He explains everything that is going to take place and ensures that you are very comfortable and relaxed. He answers all questions and addresses any concerns. I would definitely recommend Dr. Burkhart.

I have been coming for years and have seen different people for different issues. Care is always professional and competent. My most recent visit was with Dr Loochtan. Scheduling is easy. He and his staff are great. They go out of their way to meet your needs. I would recommend him.

- Barbara B.

Dr. Burkhart was thorough in his explanation regarding the problems with my nasal structure that was causing chronic sinusitis. The surgery he performed has completely improved my breathing(sinus/septoplasty/bone spur removal/turbinate). Aesthetically, my nose was very crooked and he straightened my septum perfectly. The results of his surgery have been better than expected both in correcting the issue and physical appearance. Dr. Loochtan compassionately guided me through a complex sinus surgical process that included several procedures. His care and diligence in explaining everything to me eased my initial concerns, and the completion of the procedures themselves was life-changing for me. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Loochtan and the team.

Exceptional visit today. Dr. Loochtan and his staff were so helpful during my visit regarding my ear problem and hearing issue. Barbara was so friendly and caring as she discussed my procedure. A consummate professional. Dr. Loochtan showed great skill and patience, working over 45 minutes on my ear cana.to improve my tinnitus and greatly improve my hearing. As a healthcare worker for over 35 years, I know skill and professionalism when I see it. Heather assisted me to make another appointment, and was so kind and friendly. I highly recommend this professional staff. 5/5 stars.
