Personal Statement

One concern with a child who is born with hearing loss is that we learn to speak based on what we hear. The thought of living your life, or as a parent, maybe living your life without your child saying "I love you" or "I do" or some of those really important phrases is tough. This makes it really critical to identify pediatric hearing loss in a timely manner and intervene in an appropriate way.

      Dr Bush is a superstar! He is an incredible doctor. It is clear from the moment he steps into the exam room that he truly cares about his patients. He takes time to listen to you and to actually hear your concerns. He does not just dismiss you as is the case with so many doctors. He takes time to explain your condition so that you fully understand it. He lays out your options for care with your specific situation in mind. He is extremely empathetic in his interactions. He is just the best. UK is lucky to have him and should do whatever it takes to make sure that he stays at UK.

      Dr Bush is awesome. I think his scheduler needs to either make more time between appointments or not schedule so many patients in one day.
