Tests & Treatments

  • Auditory Brainstem Response Test
    This test may be performed to determine if you have delayed nerve conduction due to a disturbance of the auditory nerve.

  • Cochlear Implant
    A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted device that may dramatically improve one's hearing if profoundly deaf or hard of hearing.

  • Ear Cleaning
    Ear cleaning, or cerumenectomy, is the removal of ear wax when symptoms of an earache, partial hearing loss, ringing in the ear or itching are present.

  • Electrocochleography
    Electrocochleaography is a test that measures the electrical potential generated by the inner ear in response to stimulation by sound.

  • Hearing Aids
    If your physician determines that you have hearing loss and it cannot be treated by medical or surgical intervention, hearing aids may be an option for you.

  • Hearing Evaluations
    A hearing evaluation can be performed to determine if you have hearing loss and whether or not you need a hearing aid.

  • Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment
    This therapy is proven to interact, interrupt and desensitize tinnitus by delivering a customized neural stimulus, embedded in clinically modified music, that promotes neural plastic changes, allowing the brain to filter out the disturbing tinnitus sound.

  • Neuropsychological Tests
    These tests can acquire information about a patient's cognitive, motor, behavioral, linguistic and executive functioning and lead to the diagnosis of a cognitive deficit.

  • Videonystagmography
    If you are experiencing problems with your balance or you are feeling dizzy, this test will help determine if a vestibular (inner ear) disease is behind the cause of your problem.
