Thanks for the reply. I’m pretty much doing this on my own. I just recently received Medicaid coverage and I haven’t even seen my new PCP yet (I have an appointment for next week, though). I also haven’t even seen a proper ENT for about 4-5 years. I obtained my hearing aids from Costco and have been working with one of their audiologists.
Anyway, I actually did look at the University of Chicago - Medicine for a possible surgeon, and I found one. However, I have been told that he is not currently accepting patients. So now I am looking at private practices. Unfortunately, it seems like many of them are focused at least as much on plastic surgery as they are on reconstruction, and that makes me uncomfortable. Obviously, I’d prefer someone whose focus is not cosmetic.
I’ll keep doing my research. I will also ask my PCP next week if he has any recommendations or resources.
