    I could not hear out of my left ear was referred to specialist to get in ASAP and was told by my Dr. it would probably be Fri. or Mon. at the latest. I started running a fever on Sun., thought it was an ear infection so my Dr. ordered Meds. When I was finally seen on Tues. there was no infection, just ear wax buildup. If I had been seen earlier I may not have needed the Rx. I was pleased with the Specialist and his office staff, my only complaint was needing to wait 5 days for an appt. to be seen ASAP.
