He was very cheerful and professional, explained in terms understandable. The only opportnity to He was very professional & pleasant & explained well what was going on to contribute to my ear pain. the only opportunity for improvement I could recommend is the instructions on the use of the over the counter meds was to clarify how long a period of time I needed to use them (i.e. until my ear felt better or for 3 or 4 days after). Just to give clearer instructions for time usage of meds before they could be stopped. I have no other recommendations. He is a very concerned and kind provider.
