Great Doctor with awesome diagnosis and 0% greed . For my problem had visited at least 5-6 ear specialist with unanimous opinion of operating it immediately either due to poor diagnosis or greed, but Dr Lustic was the saviour. Now over 8 months have passed and the problem seems to have improved on its own as predicted by the Doc. Now think about being dashed to OR immediately :)
