@arrowshooter Since he was obviously poorly informed, I'll ask did you explain your hearing loss to the doctor? What would you ideally say to him about it? Or to anyone else?

No – sorry to say I didn't. I was so focused on my own questions that I forgot. I missed a great opportunity and realized it after the doctor left the room. I have failed to do take opportunities like this before too. I get so focused on hearing and understanding that I forget.

Forgetting things and distractions are common on a doctor visit. I had written all my issues down and showed it to the triage nurse. She took the paper to give to the doctor. Because of COVID protocols the doctor called from a different room to do the discussion and came into the exam room to do the 5-minute physical exam. Then left the room again and re-conneted on the phone. I was thrown off by the COVID procedure. And this was a new doctor for me because my old doctor had retired.
