I never saw the Dr.! I even sat in a room for 15mins, he never showed. Someone stopped by the room said I was done and I could leave, I asked about the Dr. and she said he'll get back to you. He never did. The snippy woman who did the hearing test kept sighing and looked like I was a imposition in her work day! My $325.00 office visit and ear buzz test I guess didn't include diagnosis's. On the bill I did see a Tinnitus NOS description. so I went home and googled it.
Michele, thank you for leaving us feedback. We are disappointed to hear this story. It will be shared with our management teams and we will find out what happened.
