26/02/13 3 1 1 1 Was told by this dr to stop looking for something that would make us (parents) feel better for our sons hearing loss. After a year of negative pressure, abnormal tympanograms and being fitted for hearing aids she refused to place tubes in our sons ears even though 3 different audiologist who were following his case said they would benefit him. She was cold and very disinterested in a "boring" case. We left there after having seen the "best" completely broken hearted and still no answers. I'm happy to report that we did find an ENT who put tubes in and also VERY happy to report that our sons hearing normalized and no longer requires the use of hearing aids. Just some speech therapy to get him caught up and he will be keeping up with his peers throughout school and life. I would never recommend dr messner to anyone.
