Management of tinnitus in English NHS audiology departments: an evaluation of current practice Derek J. Hoare PhD,*, Phillip E. Gander PhD, Luke Collins MA, Sandra Smith BSc, Deborah A. Hall PhD http://onlinelibrary.wil...-2753.2010.01566.x/full They decided to evaluate how well Audiology Departments offer management services to tinnitus patients. So who did they decide to ask for an opinion? The tinnitus patients? Don't be stupid - who cares what they think. No the audiologists were asked to rate their own services. That's like Trip Advisor asking hotel owners to rate their own hotels. And the verdict. "respondents are satisfied with the service they currently provide to tinnitus patients. A total of 70% considered their service to be effective. Only 4% described their service as ineffective." Well that is a surprise! Stop insulting our intelligence Drs Hoare, Hall et al. Who do you think you're fooling. Tinnitus management services for patients are completely inadequate - as most tinnitus patients know from bitter personal experience. That's probably why you didn't ask us in the first place. This article is up for an award - the only award it deserves is one for unintentional hilarity.
