Tests & Treatments

  • Cochlear Implant
    A device that is surgically implanted that may dramatically improve hearing for those that are deaf or severely hard of hearing when traditional hearing aids are no longer useful.

  • 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.

  • 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.
