Thanks, Christine! We actually did end up at North Shore (today, as a matter of fact), but Dr. Gerber wasn't going to be able to fit us in for another few weeks! As such, we saw an ENT who I think generally works with older patients--nevertheless, the visit was totally pleasant and 100% different from our first visit with Young.
It's interesting that you weren't all that impressed with Dr. Young either... At that first visit, I was really turned off by her bedside manner as well as her insistence on talking at length about cochlear implants! Maybe in certain instances, this would have been appropriate, but my son's hearing loss is only moderate and his language development has been right on target, so it just seemed... odd (we were there just to get medical clearance for the hearing aids). I guess that's just the way it goes with specialists sometimes?
Anyhow, I'm very glad to know that we know where to go next time! Thanks for the recommendation! Dr. Gerber's Evanston location is literally minutes from my office, so it's convenient too!
