Ear, Nose & Throat Services

Our office performs diagnostic evaluations to determine the cause and extent of Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) problems. In addition to common screenings (such as hearing tests), we provide other diagnostic tests that help in providing thorough evaluations.

Our ENT Services include:

Audio Test/Screening

An audio test/screening is a painless, noninvasive hearing test that measures a person’s ability to hear different sounds, pitches, or frequencies. Patients who have a tumor in or around the ear may undergo audiometry testing to determine whether hearing loss has occurred or to monitor their hearing before and after surgery. It is also used to evaluate whether hearing aids or surgery may improve one’s hearing.

Sometimes areas of the nose and throat are out of the reach of our regular exam tools. In these cases, we may employ the use of a thin, fiberoptic camera (rhinolaryngoscope) to evaluate all of your nasal cavity, throat and larynx. The goal of this procedure is to look for evidence of sinus disease, nasal polyps or enlarged adenoids.

Ear Lavage

Ear Lavage is the process of flushing the external ear canal with sterile water or sterile saline. It is used to treat patients who complain of foreign body or cerumen (ear wax) impaction. The purpose of ear lavage is to remove earwax that is obstructing the ear canal or to remove a foreign object lodged in the ear canal. Ear lavage is most commonly performed on those who experience a wax buildup that has impaired hearing and irritated the outer ear canal.
