"A nervous visit"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital / Ear, Nose and Throat

The waiting times were very quick and the hearing and pressure tests went well. The ENT consultant realised I have moderate hearing loss and said that its not a good idea to be seen by too many doctors at once. They are going to write to my other consultants to keep them updated on my progress. They realised that there is something seriously wrong with my left ear and that it is enflamed. They gave me a very useful prescription to help battle this ear trouble of mine. There was also a junior doctor assisting who was very helpful and insightful.
