Otoscopic Examination/Cerumen Removal
Following your initial interview, Dr. Steinberg will take a look into your ears using a tool called an otoscope. This medical treatment is used to view your ear canal and ear drum and help the audiologist determine whether there is cerumen (ear wax) obstructing the ear canal. Furthermore, Dr. Steinberg will take a look at your ear drum to make sure it looks healthy and normal.
