"Worst service."

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Went to the ent due to slight hearing loss and a burst ear drum with a lot of pain which has been going on for a long time. Had a hearing test and Was told my hearing was slightly off. Saw the doctor who didn't ask any questions just looked in my ears for a few seconds. Told me there was nothing wrong with me ears and my hearing was fine. Tried to explain the pain I was having and the fact my ear had burst twice in 5 months and was getting dizzy and headaches. But wasn't listening to me. Told me that the old problem was I was slightly over weight. Was told to lose weight.
