My provider is a world class provider of his services for my ear. He always explains my status and what needs to be done and why. I have been seeing doctors regarding my ear for more than 65 years and the services I have been getting from Vanderbilt are by far the best. The explanation I get about the status of my ear and what needs to be done is world class. It always leaves me very comfortable.
