If you are dealing with any ear problems you should turn to one of our ENT doctors for specialized care and treatment.
So, what can an otolaryngologist do?
Well, we are able to provide diagnostic testing and treatment plans to handle a variety of ear issues, including:
- Hearing loss
- Ear infections
- Balance disorders (E.g. Vertigo)
- Disorders of the facial nerves
- Ear problems (e.g. swelling; pain)
- Tumors of the ear
While ENT doctors, such as ours, can also handle problems related to the nose and throat as well, we can provide you with the ultimate and expert ear care you need.
When should you visit an otolaryngologist?
We know that a lot of people like to take a wait-and-see approach to their health. Of course, it’s a good idea to pick up the phone and schedule an appointment with one of our ENT doctors if you are experiencing:
- Hearing loss (particularly if it's come on suddenly)
- Ear pain, swelling, fullness and fever (often a sign of an infection)
- Ringing or buzzing in the ears (a sign of tinnitus)
- Dizziness (could be the result of a vestibular disorder)
- Impacted earwax
Children, particularly youngsters, may not be able to tell you whether an ear infection is happening to them; however, you can look for signs that they might be dealing with an infection. For instance, if they are tugging at one ear a lot and fussing more than usual, this could very well be signs that they are dealing with an infection. If in doubt, give us a call and see if the symptoms you or your child is experiencing require urgent or specialized medical care.
