Expertise

I am qualified to answer all questions related to the diagnosis and rehabilitative treatment of hearing and balance disorders. This includes evaluation of hearing and balance, counseling, amplification (hearing aids and assistive devices), tinnitus (noises in head) evaluation and management, cochlear implants, and audiology in general.

Experience in the area

I started my career as a hearing instrument specialist (on a trainee license) in 1998. After almost 2 years, I decided that I needed to pursue higher education if I was to provide the best care to hearing impaired patients that I could. In 2007, I completed my Doctor of Audiology and have been providing audiological care for almost 5 years. I have vestibular, cochlear implant, and pediatric experience along with prescribing, fitting, and verification of hearing aid amplification as part of comprehensive hearing loss rehabilitation.

Malcolm,    You ask a very complex question, but the short answer is "yes, your sinus problems could be the cause (or at least contributing)".    The longer answer is that tinnitus is very complex and

2014-02-03 Plugged right ear:

Hello David,    I am sorry you are having this problem.  My first thought is that you should stop using the home remedy.  There are some combinations that can be used and are recommended for home use/earwax

I would say that your history and symptoms are fairly consistent with otosclerosis with the addition of ETD.  The otolaryngologist (ENT) is likely reading the report from the audiologist who did the testing

Wendy,    You ask a good question.  Eustachian tube dysfunction would explain a "retracted" eardrum and sometimes tinnitus.  If this has been chronic (long-term), then I would hope some medical treatment
