I do it.  I just did it very cautiously at first, now I'm a little more
adventureous.  In a small rehab hospital, the Dr.s' encourage me to do it.
 Many of my patients in my private practice prefer my touch to their
P.C.P.  I do curette and lavage (of course, heed all the
contraindications).  I have not invested in a vacuum (suction).  Has
anybody out there?  When is that better than curette &/or lavage?

When is AAA, A.D.A., or AHSA going to sponsor the next ADVANCED advanced
cerumen management wkshp?
