Patient Comments (1)
San Diego, CA |
The technician that took my hearing test had no bedside manner and not once explained to me any of the procedures/tests she was about to run, including shoving some instrument into my ear and pulling it out without care. Dr. Goodman was nice enough to listen to my symptoms but had little sympathy about them, especially when the tests came back that showed my hearing was "fine" -- he advised me against going to "rock concerts" and pretty much just deal with my uncomfortable ear symptoms.
