Dr. Gergits examines your ear, learns about the sounds you hear, and may perform hearing tests, especially if your tinnitus affects your hearing. If he identifies a cause, your treatment focuses on healing that problem.

Otherwise, Dr. Gergits focuses on reducing your symptoms. This could include cleaning wax out of your ears, prescribing medications that may reduce the severity of the noise, or using white noise to block out the tinnitus.

You may get relief from a masking device, which is worn like a hearing aid and produces white noise.

If you have occasional or ongoing tinnitus, call Sinus & Allergy Wellness Center or schedule an appointment online.
