I saw Dr. Angster for a second opinion on a problem with my right ear. Even though there wasn't a solution to my blocked ear right now she thoroughly explained my condition and offered some thoughts that might help. She didn't see any medical reason for my blocked ear. She gave me a prescription for some ear drops that should relieve my extremely dry ears.
