I was extremely pleased with Dr. Lindsay's professionalism and warm caring bedside manner. I have had an extreme fear of going to ENT from early childhood due to multiple ear problems from birth and has avoided them since my adulthood even if I had earaches. Dr. Lindsay's approach put me at ease...more

I visited Dr. Lindsay in June 2017 for an issue I was having with my right ear. Since May I had been experiencing tinnitus daily and one to two days a week my ear was blocked/clogged which diminished my hearing in that ear for several hours up to an entire day.

Tinnitus is the hearing of sound when no external sound is present. While often described as a ringing, it may also sound like a clicking, hiss or roaring. The sound may be soft, loud, low pitched or high pitched. In some people, the sound causes depression or anxiety and can interfere with concentration. Tinnitus is not a disease but a symptom that can result from many underlying causes, primarily hearing loss. We perform a hearing exam to evaluate whether there is hearing loss.
