People who suffered sudden hearing loss are usually going through traumatic stress. Trisha is not right person for this job. She is neither helpful, compassionate or competent. She is like a teenager treating PTSD patients. She is unempathetic and lacks experience. If your symptoms do not appear in the textbook, she dismisses it. I complained about ear pain, she dismissed it as jaw pain and did not investigate further. She said that steroid ear shots have a 50% success rate when given 3 weeks of hearing loss. When asked "if more than 3 weeks?", her answer was still 50%. She said confidently that menieres patients do well with diuretics & low sodium diet. Not true. Most patients continue to suffer severe symptoms. She seemed to have more confidence in their treatments than the effectiveness of the treatments themselves. She assured the ear shots do not hurt, but I experienced multiple sharp pains. She again dismissed it as "a little discomfort". She seems disconnected from her patients.

Didn’t explain anything to me despite asking questions. She’s was short and way too general in her responses, talking to me like I didn’t know anything about my own hearing. It was clear that she couldn’t wait to get out of there. Such a disappointment and reflects terribly on Dr. Carfrae, who is terrific.

Worst healthcare professional I’ve ever seen. Very curt, patronizing, and lacked any compassion for me while I was struggling with a debilitating condition. I would never recommend her to anyone.
