New Webpage on Tinnitus (Ringing in the Ears)

A new webpage has been added to our website regarding tinnitus otherwise known as ringing in the ears (or any other sound for that matter). There are 3 basic types of tinnitus for which evaluation and treatment differs and include:

1) Continuous
2) Pulsatile (Rhythmic)
3) Arrhythmic (the sound randomly occurs without any rhythm)

Depending on how a person describes their tinnitus (because the physician often can't hear it), the following may be ordered:

1) Audiogram
2) Carotid Ultrasound
3) MRI or CT Scan
4) Bloodwork (Specifically, TSH and CBC)
