Ear Disorders in Federal Way, WA

What Are Ears?

Ears are extremely intricate, complex and delicate organs. Not only do they collect, process, and transmit sound signals to our brains that enable us to hear, but they also assist us in maintaining our equilibrium and balance.

Your quality of life can be severely impacted by inner ear conditions, such as lesions, internal growths, excessive wax, middle ear infections, vertigo, and tinnitus. Our experienced group of doctors, practitioners, and seasoned audiologists will listen to your concerns, carry out in-depth diagnostic tests and hearing evaluations, and will recommend the best possible course of treatment.

Additionally, we are happy to collaborate with you to suggest measures to preserve and protect your hearing.

What Are Ear Disorders We Specialize In?

  • Hearing Loss – A sudden or gradual decrease in how well you can hear. Depending on the cause, it can be mild or severe, temporary or permanent.
  • Vertigo and Balance Disorders – Although dizziness can occur in people of any age, it is more common among older adults.
  • Ear Infections – While ear infections are much more common in children, there may be an underlying cause for repeat or chronic ear infections that need to be treated.
  • Tinnitus – Many people experience an occasional ringing (or roaring, hissing, buzzing, or tinkling) in their ears.
  • Ear Wax – Everyone has dealt with earwax before, but for some, it can be particularly challenging to maintain the build-up of this waxy substance inside their ear canal.
  • Swimmer’s Ear – (Otitis Externa) is an inflammation or infection of the ear canal, the passage that leads from the outer ear to the eardrum.
  • Ear Drum Perforations – An eardrum perforation is also known as a ruptured eardrum. It is a hole or tear in the tissue that separates your ear canal from your middle ear.
  • Congenital Deformities – These conditions may develop prenatally and be identified during pregnancy, at birth, or even after birth.
