I went to Dr. Urffer specifically to have a steroid injection given to combat possible hearing loss due to an accidental acoustic trauma incident. He agreed this is a wise hearing loss recovery technique. He ordered an audiology exam prior to any injection in order to see the status of my hearing. However, this was useless because I had never had a prior hearing exam to compare it with, and I was also worried about the audiologist accidentally blasting my injured ear with volume. I expressed my concerns to him but he did not care. So, I went into the audiology testing room and sure enough, the audiologist makes a mistake with the volume and blasts my right ear!!...the ear I wanted to be treated for! I rip the earphones out and fly out of there in a rage. It's now been 3 months and I have to try and get used to this new hissing and clicking noise in my right ear which is at the same pitch as that audiologist's voice! Why didn't Dr. Urffer just give me the steroid shot without the headgames? I now have to take anti-anxiety meds to not kill myself. He permanently worsened my tinnitus.
