This has to be the best ear doctor in the world I went to specialist for a year because of 60% hearing loss and they were baffled at clinics hospitals and offices finally I was taking my son who is deaf in one ear to doctor to see what he thought of his hearing and I mentioned my problem with 60% loss he looked in my ear came back with a instrument and cut out a thin veneer of a type of actively growing wax that was clear and covered my eardrum in five minutes he solved my hearing problem
