“We made this appointment well in advance. It is a 2-hour trip. We were nearing Little Rock when we got a call that the appointment was cancelled. The doctor's home was without power and she decided not to show up. No one else available to see us. Very unprofessional. A call the night before, or a text or call early in the morning could have saved us the gas, time and frustration. It's easy to imagine that our best interests in hearing would not be served any better. ”

Official Response from University of Arkansas Speech and Hearing Clinic:
“Dear Roger D., We apologize for your inconvenience having to travel for 2 hours only to have your appointment cancelled. Due to the severe storms in the area, the scheduled clinician was one of thousands without power for days. The clinician still being without power the morning of your appointment, contacted the clinic to request your appointment be rescheduled. As we are a university clinic our clinicians not only see patients, but teach academic courses and serve the community as well. Due to this type of schedule, our clinicians have limited availability to see patients. We understand your frustration and are working toward correcting these issues with the healthcare staff. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience. We would be glad to reschedule your appointment to regain your trust in our services or provide you with a list of other clinics to assist you in your hearing healthcare. Sincerely, UA-Little Rock Speech and Hearing Clinic ”
