What about switching your regular doctor? I think if I got farmed out every time something came up, I would have to see someone else. I would let me insurance know about the problem too.

I see a nurse practitioner if at all possible. They have a better bedside manner, listen to what I say, do what they can to help, and generally and kind and caring.

Do this every day for five days. On the fifth day, use a blue rubber bulb syringe (a baby nasal aspirator, but get the blue kind, not the clear kind) to flush out the ear with lukewarm (not hot or cold!) water. Your wax should pop right out. If not, do the whole thing again for five more days. If still nothing, and you still can't hear correctly, I'd grudgingly consider going to the ENT.
Thanks for the info! I'll definitely give this a try. It's driving me NUTS!! It's totally clogged, I can't hear out of it, and it's ringing.

Then let the consumer treat them like it's a business!

Menu of prices!
Guarantee/warranty
appointment fees- we get charged if we miss or are late...let's start charging them if they miss or are late!!!!!
When we go in and ask for such and such....if they don't provide the service then we don't pay!

The list could go on and on!

love it!!!!!!!!
