    He does a good job every time. Always makes sure to answer any questions. Ear wax can be very gross and he is very professional and doesn't make you feel like he is disgusted.

    He seems like he is pleasant, but very quiet and reserved. We were there for a simple tube recheck so we really did not have concerns but again, the provider seemed rushed.
