Mondays are never fun. But imagine a Monday morning with a sick, crying daughter pulling at her ear and an important day at work. The epitome of stressful? We think yes.
Annie’s daughter, Ellena, woke up last Monday morning at 6am complaining about pain in her right ear. Ellena has had ear infections in the past, and Annie was sure this was another onset. She knew the drill- trip to the doctor, scope the ear, antibiotic prescription, run to the pharmacy, and a day at home tending to her sick daughter. The problem this specific morning? Annie could not miss work.
Annie was able to scope Ellena’s ear and record a video. The Oto Eardrum Finder guided Annie directly to Ellena’s eardrum and ensured that she got a good view of everything. Annie submitted the exam to one of our on-call pediatricians, Dr. Rudnick, who was able to provide a response in under two hours. By 8am, Annie had seen Dr. Rudnick’s response and was at ease. Ellena luckily did not have an ear infection and would not require a visit to the doctor.
Annie saved herself a visit to the pediatrician, got to work on time, and reduced Monday morning stress. In her words, “everything was great!”
