Hardened, impacted or compact cerumen (earwax) is difficult to remove at home safely. When you place an object in your ear to try to do the job yourself, it’s easy to damage the delicate structures in your ear. Let the ear, nose and throat specialists at ENT Specialists safely removed earwax, so you hear and feel better.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
If you feel others mumble, frequently ask people to repeat themselves or play the television at levels uncomfortably to friends and family, you may have hearing loss. ENT Specialists can perform a complete audiologic evaluation to determine the type and degree of hearing loss you have and recommend hearing aids to help you hear better.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
Successful adjustment to wearing hearing aids begins with a customized fitting experience. Since people prefer to hear sounds differently, ENT Specialists take the time to ensure that your hearing aids are perfectly programmed to hear sounds the way you want to hear them.
Hearing Aid Repairs
New hearing aids are covered by a manufacturer’s warranty. If you ever have a problem with your hearing aids, you can bring them to us. Even if you didn’t purchase your hearing aids from ENT Specialists, we can perform repairs on most major brands. Bring your hearing aids in regularly for a deep cleaning, so your devices always operate optimally.
Industrial Hearing Screenings
Excessive noise in the workplace can permanently damage hearing. OSHA regulations require certain employees to have regular hearing tests. ENT Specialists can test your hearing in accordance with government regulations in as little as 30 minutes and keep you in compliance.
Live Speech Mapping
Live speech mapping is the most accurate method for adjusting hearing aids used today. Instead of a set of random noises, ENT Specialists combines the voice of a friend or loved one with technology that allows sound to be seen, to adjust your hearing aids to your personal preference expertly.
Hearing well is vital for the development of speech and language. Hearing also impacts a child’s ability to learn. At ENT Specialists, we treat hearing loss in people of all ages, from newborns to senior citizens. Some auditory testing doesn’t even require the participation of the patient, making these methods ideal for newborns and infants.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
When tinnitus keeps you up at night or interferes with your daily life, it’s time to seek treatment. ENT Specialists can diagnose the cause of your tinnitus and prescribe therapy, retraining, hearing aids or other methods of controlling tinnitus.
VNG - Balance Evaluations
Good balance requires good inner ear function. If you suffer from vertigo, dizziness or other balance disorders, videonystagmography can evaluate the function of the inner ear and determine the cause of your balance problems.
