Patient Comments (3)
in Camden, TN |
Tinnitis had been bothering me after a weekend. My dr sent me to West TN ENT Clinic. Dr. Wainscott came in and said my hearing was perfect so nothing was wrong. I was so mad when I left. 3 yrs later I had to go to Vanderbilt because of and tennis ball size tumor in my brain which grew from another tumor on my ear nerve. I told the story to the ENT at Vandy and she said what he did was wrong- Tinnitus doesn't start in a day unless its dangerous. My hearing is still perfect after ear nerve surgery
in Henderson, TN |
I had a gland removed only to find out later he never took the stone out above the gland!
in Jackson, TN |
After two separate office visits, he didn't seem to want to help me with my problem of noise in my ears. Didn't take my blood pressure or ask many questions, just shrugged if off as getting older. I didn't care for his attitude at all and definitely won't be going back!
