Dissapointed with House Ear Clinic
Went for my second appt. with them. Had my CT disc, and they did an ABR test. Or tried. They said they couldn't get a response. Said there was too much noise in my head for the machine to measure the results. Took half a Xanex to make me calmer, still couldn't get any results. Audi gave up at that point, even though I offered to take more Xanex. She actually had the nerve to ask me if I even took the first half! Even though she WATCHED me take it! She brought me the water! This is the same lady who got frustrated with me last time during the speech discrimination test, telling me she KNOWS I can hear the words, so I need to respond?! Yeah lady, I can HEAR it, DOES NOT mean I can UNDERSTAND it!! Ugh, done with her. Go back to see Dr. and he says, well we need to try again with you taking a whole Xanex 2 hours before the test? Um, ok. How are you going to get any better results, when as it was I almost fell asleep three times during the test? That's about as good as it gets for relaxed! My Mom and I are no annoyed, especially because my Audi here at home (House Ear is 2 1/2 hours away from us) doesn't even understand why he is doing the ABR, because I'm not 2 years old (her words). He REFUSES to do ANYTHING (aid my left ear, try a BAHA on a softband, etc) until he can get ABR results. SO annoying! On the drive home, my Mom and I decided were not going back to the ABR appt they scheduled for the end of the month. I have an appt with my Audi on Friday, and were going to talk to her about this. See if she can recommend a different Dr. and clinic.
Anyway, thanks for letting me vent!
