I almost canceled my appointment yesterday due to the reviews. that would have been a huge mistake. I found Dr Heiland to be very personable, knowledgeable, friendly, and just a downright good guy. I can't remember ever feeling so comfortable with a Dr before. the previous negative reviews are complete junk in my opinion. I have nothing negative to say about him. our interaction yesterday was 100% positive.

He saved my life. I had a growth on my neck that I didn’t know was a tumor. Just thought it was a swollen glad that never went down. It started rapidly growing out of no where, and within a couple months it has tripled in size. I was referred to Dr Heiland. He assessed me and ordered surgery for that Saturday because how fast it was growing and it was putting pressure on my artery to my brain. Surgery went perfect and the tumor was removed. He saved my life. Thank you to him and his whole staff. They were all so nice and caring.

Dr. Howard proved to be very comforting and in all ways professional as she went about administering the various parts of my 90 min. balance test. All proved to be a great relief as l had dreaded the test as is normal when one fears the unknown.

I would highly recommend Scottsdale ENT. After an accidental fall I was aided in my recovery and was so glad I went there. PT Anthony went out of his way and really helped me with my vertigo issues. I will definitely return for their help.

Shea Green provided expert care. My app't was a 9 month follow-up. Shea was very thorough with the exam asking me questions and allowing me to also ask questions to which she provided comprehensive answers. Shea is very knowledgeable, friendly, personable and, professional. She's a lovely lady!

Dr. Heiland did my kiddo’s adenoid and tonsil removal when he was only 4. He was amazing and made sure that my husband and I felt at ease. My kiddo is almost 7 and we still see him when any issues arise. We love Dr. Heiland, he is always very thorough and takes his time.

Everyone in this office is professional, caring, pleasant, and friendly. The front desk was being given a very hard time by a "Karen" regarding wearing a mask. Those girls didn't even roll their eyes. They simply handed her 2 masks. I'm not sure I would have handled "Karen" quite as kind. Kudos to all!

I traveled 6 hours for my appointment and the office staff was wonderful. When I came in for my vertigo testing and having a headache they kept asking if I needed anything or if I needed to stop because of nausea they did. They had scheduled my results on the day we were to head home in the afternoon, by the end of my testing they had a cancellation and moved me first thing in the morning so we wouldn't be driving home late at night. I was warned that Dr Heiland doesn't always have the bedside manner everyone want's, but I found him easy to talk to , he listened to my symptoms and gave me a plan to start with even before we started my testing. I followed up with Bridget Albright the PA and she did a great job explaining the results of my tests and what the plan would be. It was well worth the drive to know that my health is in good hands and a plan in place to help me get my vertigo under control.I wish all healthcare offices could be as nice and professional

I was having vertigo events which culminated with a bad crash on my bicycle in Sept 2021. PA Bridget Albright was able to start testing me for audio and balance and was able to diagnose the issue with my inner ear. She prescribed a change in my diet and to start vertigo physical therapy. Dr Anthony Veglia began a physical therapy regimen focusing on my vertigo symptoms. Within a couple of months of the change in diet and the physical therapy, my vertigo episodes reduced in severity and occurrence. I am totally thrilled with the turn around. I am back to a normal life. Big kudos to the entire team at Scottsdale ENT.

I was diagnosed with Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness that started mid October 2020, diagnosed in January 2021. From spinning on standing to maintaining vertical without falling the majority of the time to being able to return to regular participation in Jazzercise classes 3 times a week took weekly visits to see the PT from February to early November 2021. I’ve now been back on my regular Jazzercising without spinning close to 98% of the time over the last month. Thank you to Dr Samantha Stolper and Dr Cathy Cheng, and then the last 3 months with Dr Anthony Veglia. All worked me hard and always had faith in me for getting back to the functional movement I was seeking. The very best help I could have, and they gave me hope.

Doctor Heiland has been my ear nose and throat physician for 21 years since March of 2000. At that time I was diagnosed with stage 3 advanced squamous cancer of the neck and base of tongue. His aggressive treatment is the main reason that I am alive today
Without his professional and knowledgeable treatment of my cancer I would have died many years ago
His bedside manner is as.good as it gets. I'm grateful he has been my doctor

I had my annual ENT appointment today 3/31/21 and I wanted to share what a positive experience it always is. The 2 women at the front desk are always pleasant and professional. Dr. MacKechnie is very thorough and caring and I always look forward to meeting with Debra Hamila, my Audiologist. I have been a patient for over 4 years and cannot say enough about this caring, professional staff.

I have been going to Scottsdale ENT for years. Originally I was referred to Dr Heiland. He's an amazing doctor... But he does book up fast, so when I had a issue that I could not wait for him I discovered Dr MACKECHNIE! She is amazing and also very through. I have never had any trouble with the front office. Like All doctors offices they can sometimes get busy, but when I've had an emergency they've always made room for me to get seen.

I highly recommend Scottsdale Ear, Nose & Throat. First off, upon arrival, your temperature is taken and distancing in the waiting room is followed. Any staff you come into contact with are friendly and knowledgeable. Waiting time for your appointment is minimal and any required pre testing that can be performed onsite is very thorough and completed by a friendly, knowledgeable professional staff member. The Otolaryngologist I saw, Dr. Kurt Heiland, for throat and ears quickly became a favorite doctor. He was not only kind and gentle, but he performed testing on his own to confirm pre testing results. I was one of the luckier patients. I required no further procedures for my throat or ears. However, I would have been comfortable following any of Dr. Heiland's recommendations . I did purchase a great book he recommended for acid reflux. As previously stated, I highly recommend Scottsdale Ear, Nose & Throat for any and all your ENT needs.

Came here after suffering ear syndrome in another state and got seen pretty quickly. Dr and the practioner were very thorough and professional. I also had follow up hearing tests which revealed my diagnoses. The Dr. Also suggested I get a full blood work up from other symptoms that I was exhibiting during my exam. I went back to my regular Dr and had a full blood work up that I would not have had competed if not for the recommendation of Dr. Heiland. I was later admitted to the hospital for further testing and diagnosed with an auto-immune syndrome. I also had excellent follow up appointments at this clinic and my ear issues are almost 100% back to normal. Would recommend thi clinic for any ear nose and throat issues.
