What is the reaction of doctors to patients who have lost their sense of smell?

with Chris Kelly, Founder, AbScent 


Below,  patients tell their stories of what happened when they went to the doctor to investigate their smell loss. These comments have been collected through two Facebook groups: Facebook/smelltraining and Facebook/LivingWellwithAnosmia. I am grateful to everyone who took the time to send me their comments.   - Chris Kelly

She was surprised and said, "is something wrong?" and I answered "You've just told me that I may have lost my sense of smell forever, of course something's wrong!" and she answered "Oh, I thought maybe something else."   -KV
