Dear Mr Pinder: This is just a note on a busy Monday morning to thank you so so much for all your kindness and expertise in sorting out my ears last Friday. It was hugely appreciated. If I am absolutely honest, the previous three weeks had been fairly miserable and had affected my performance at the organisations I volunteer for not the least caused by a very poor sleep pattern which a blocked ear does cause. I am deeply grateful to you also for kindly suggesting a 'preventative check' in about six months time and I will be in touch with jenny about this in February 2017. I continue to be conscious that oiling in a good time prior to a visit makes life a lot easier for you. Again very many thanks to all your help. I left your consulting room a changed man!!! With every good wish.
