I left feeling confused and somewhat deflated in my hopes. I still feel like I am "under water" in my right ear. She might very well be an excellent doctor, but in my experience, I had to ask questions to get answers rather than her explaining everything to me and then asking for questions. For example, she didn't mention that I had ETD until I asked about "the pressure issue". I am thankful that I don't have nerve damage and that my hearing test was better than the last time.
