Hearing, Tinnitus & Balance
As hearing, tinnitus, and balance specialists, we offer the latest technology along with expertise in the newest diagnostic procedures and the state-of-the-art equipment. Patients are first evaluated for medical problems and then, following testing, we recommend treatments and tools such as hearing aid devices, tinnitus therapy, or balance management, depending on what is most suitable for each individual.
Diagnostic Audiological Tests
- Comprehensive audiological evaluation
- Immittance measures (middle ear and eustachian tube studies)
- Otoacoustic emissions (for the assessment of cochlear function for monitoring ototoxicity secondary to chemotherapy and radiation as well as for hearing screening in infants)
- Tinnitus evaluation and management
- Auditory steady state responses (ASSR)-detailed frequency-specific hearing assessment through recording of brain activity
- Central auditory processing disorders
- Electrocochleography (ECOG)-for differential diagnosis of Meniere's disease
- Auditory Evoked Responses
- Auditory brainstem responses (ABR)
- Middle latencies responses (MLR)
- Late evoked responses (P300)
- Electroneurography for facial nerve pathology
