that's the question (see "subject")
trying to gauge how confident i am in given responses.
typically i would expect the more one does (either # cases/year) or(total # cases/career) would generally favor better outcomes.
anticipating experience=improved skill
(barring of course, that one is accruing lots of bad outcomes, along with the volume)
a friend, with whom i visited about HIS AN experience, related the following:
"Jesse, I [he] spoke to Dr. ___, near the coast, and he (otologist) said that he [otologist] does like 20/year, but out at house, they do like 200/year"
said friend went to HEI, and had a wonderful outcome.
admittedly, that conversation between that otologist, and my friend occurred four to five years ago.
also, that number of "200" must represent HEI as a total, not any one physician, (otherwise one guy is doing a new AN . . . 4 days a week).
I met with an otologist the other day, whose numbers were much lower than either of those numbers.
not sure how confident i should or shouldn't be, based on that.
