    I am sorry that your consultation for tinnitus did not meet your expectations. Tinnitus is a frustrating condition to treat for both patients and doctors as there is often no simple answer. Once a serious underlying cause is excluded, there is usually no medication or operation which can remove the tinnitus. The emphasis then is on managing the condition. I would be very happy to review you to further our discussion on ways forward such as tinnitus therapy, white noise generation etc if it remains troublesome.

    Dr Mace was knowledgeable, professional, reassuring, and a great example of what I would expect a top class ENT specialist to be. Unfortunately wasn't able to get to the root of my own condition, though not for want of trying on Dr Mace's part, he did a thorough exam and gave explanations during the time given. I would certainly recommend him as a specialist and would request to see him in future if any similar issues arose that I wanted dealt with promptly. Thanks again Doctor.
