Hearing Evaluation

To evaluate the cause of hearing problems in children and adults a variety of tests are used. For the basic test the patient responds to auditory stimuli by raising their hand or pressing a button; different pitches and loudness will be used to determine the patient's hearing levels. Additional diagnostic tests include otoacoustic omissions and tympanometry with acoustic reflexes.

Patient Testimonials

Dizziness Testing

We use Videonystagmography (VNG) technologies to determine if a vestibular (inner ear) disease may be causing a balance or dizziness problem. The inner ears and the eyes are connected by muscles and nerves. VNG testing is a series of tests designed to document a person's ability to follow visual objects with their eyes and how well the eyes respond to information from the vestibular system. To monitor the movements of the eyes, goggles are placed around the eyes to record eye movements during testing. Appointments usually last about 1.5 hours.

Patient Testimonials

I found Dr. Mamiya to be very patient, thoroughly professional and compassionate. Dr. Mamiya conducted an extremely detailed test for my dizziness issues. I was very nervous at the beginning, but she made me laugh and relax during testing. I am glad to find her.

Sound Retraining Therapy

Tinnitus is a sensation of sound heard inside the head, commonly described as a high pitch ringing.

Hyperacusis is a disorder in loudness perception. Patients suffering from hyperacusis may appear overly sensitive to a range of sounds, finding many noises unbearable and painfully loud.

Misophonia is defined as a strong dislike of certain sounds and an abnormally strong reaction to them such as anger or even fear. The specific sounds that cause the reaction are unique to each individual.

The goal of the sound retraining program is to evaluate and help the patient habituate to their tinnitus so it will no longer be a problem. The program also help the hyperacusis or misophonia patient tolerate normal sounds and learn to cope.
