Hearing problems in 6 yr old. Where should I take him?

The pediatrician did the basic tests and said he was a.o.k.
The ped also gave him the new improved eye test & said he was ok, but I have mommy intuition and took him to an opthamologist and discovered he has HORRIBLE vision.
Anyways, he's always saying "HUH?" and needing us to repeat ourselves. He says he can't hear the teacher well.
So do I go back to the ped? Or find an audiologist? Any advice?

  • I'd find a new pediatrician. And then work on finding a pediatric audiologist.
