I have already recommended Dr Wolford. Unfortunately it is about 5 hours drive to Vanderbilt. My ear problem is definitely decreased since my visit. I will always recommend Vanderbilt for anyone who has problem not being resolved at home. I will always advise go to Vanderbilt first with a serious problem. I am so grateful to Dr Wolford and staff for the care I have already received. I have had the ear problem about 5 months with no relief from care at home. It is good to feel some relief at last. Also it is good to understand what the cause is most likely.
