Audiology Associates Extends Comprehensive Tinnitus Testing and Treatment Program for Mill Valley Residents
Date:12/17/2012

Santa Rosa, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2012

The American Tinnitus Association estimates that over 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus. Tinnitus is a medical condition characterized by persistent noise in one or both ears which can be heard by the affected individual. Audiology Associates has offered Northern California residents a comprehensive approach to hearing diagnosis and treatment since 1984. Over the years, the Audiology Associates Tinnitus Care Program has built-up a reputation as a reliable, one-stop referral source for patients suffering from symptoms of tinnitus, and with the new, more spacious Mill Valley Office now open, patients between Novato and San Francisco can receive comprehensive tinnitus care from an expert care team at a convenient location.

For some people, tinnitus can cause a severe annoyance in everyday life. Many of the various causes of tinnitus occur in everyday settings, and symptoms generally worsen with age, making tinnitus a common hearing problem for people to experience at some point during their lifetimes. Causes include noise-induced hearing loss and nerve damage, a buildup of earwax and/or fluids, side effects of prescription and over the counter medications, ear infections or eardrum ruptures, head and neck trauma, and cardiovascular problems, such as hypertension.

The Tinnitus Testing and Treatment Program at Audiology Associates provides evidence-based diagnostic and treatment strategies for helping people overcome their symptoms. Audiologists and technicians in the Tinnitus Care Program carry decades of experience in relieving the symptoms of tinnitus with AGX hearing technology and sound therapy.

Peter Marincovich, Ph.D., CCC-A, clinical audiologist and owner of Audiology Associates, directs the Tinnitus Testing and Treatment Program, developed by Judy Conley, M.A., CCC-A, at Audiology Associates. “People suffering from tinnitus often describe their symptoms as whistling, hissing, buzzing, ringing or pulsing in the ear. These sounds may come and go, but for many, tinnitus symptoms affect them 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Dr. Marincovich explains.

“At Audiology Associates, we’re proud of the full-service diagnostics and treatment that we bring to our patients, and we want people suffering from tinnitus symptoms to find the relief they need. In most cases, the exact diagnosis and cause of tinnitus is not immediately determinable. Our clinical audiologists conduct a thorough clinical evaluation, including a complete patient history and medication regimen, to help determine if tinnitus is present and what may be the underlying causes of the condition. If needed, our audiologists perform specialized tests to evaluate tinnitus. Some of these tests measure the specific features of the tinnitus itself.”

The comprehensive testing battery at Audiology Associates Tinnitus Care Program includes complete audiological evaluations with additional high frequency testing, pitch matching, loudness matching, masking level measurements, uncomfortable loudness level measurements, tympanometry, acoustic reflex testing, and otoacoustic emission testing. These advanced tests help audiologists and clinicians determine the root cause of patients’ tinnitus symptoms, and provide essential information for treatment and hearing-aid fittings.

With Dr. Marincovich leading the way, Audiology Associates delivers quality, personalized care in order to help patients find the perfect technology to suit their needs. Known to always have the latest digital hearing aids on the market, Audiology Associates has provided comprehensive hearing diagnostics and treatment to patients for over 28 years.
