[QUOTE=Narue;5243269]I understand about the no insurance and the hearing loss. I'm in a similar situation myself. I would call around to local hospitals and see if they have an ent department. Those places use c-cap and go by income for payment. You could also try a large city state university hospital. I would hope that it would be better than the one where I live. The state university has it's own hospital and ent department. They are booked over two months in advance. They have one ent doctor that sees uninsured low income people. What I found out is this doctor has two sanctions on her medical record for stimulant use and is currently on probation as I type this. I might be able to dismiss one sanction but two separate instances. You know there has to be something to it. I think the university doesn't care about sticking a problem doctor on non-insurance patients like myself. I've wanted to report this to the local newspaper or television station and bring that thought up. I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one thinking the same thing. Anyone reading this please comment. Am I being to prejudice? I don't want a doctor who is high operating on my ear. Sorry. I was doing a search on the doctor when it popped up. Any doctor that I see in the future I am going to thoroughly check out. I would recommend that to anyone. I don't want to be seen by this woman. Should I raise he.. about her record and ask to be seen by someone else? Please let me know what you think. Anyone else out there let me know as well. The question is, should people with no insurance get handed down second rate doctors? Good luck to the both of us.[/QUOTE]

I will say a prayer that you get the proper care that you need also. I don't blame you for not wanting a high doctor operating on your ear, but you'd probably be surprised how many high doctors are walking around that we don't know about. The medical profession has a very high incidence of drug use and abuse. Sometimes in order to reinstate a medical license the doctor who was using drugs has to complete a rehabilitation program successfully and pass random drug screening. Hopefully this is the case with that doctor. I would ask to see someone else if at all possible.

I found a doctor that would see me who is an excellent doctor and did my sons operation, but it will cost $200 plus to see him. Hopefully he will let me make payments because I don't have any extra money to spend. I still have not regained my hearing and it has been 2 weeks. I completed the antibiotics and have a few more days on 10 mg of prednisone daily. I am hoping the doctor will help me find a way to get it back. My MRI was negative and there was no fluid, wax, tumor, or anything like that.
