Our Areas of Expertise
At The Hearing and Tinnitus Center of Dallas-Fort Worth, we specialize in hearing disorders including hearing loss, tinnitus, and misophonia. We believe that:
- Hearing loss is not just an aggravation. It can reduce your earning power, contribute to depression, isolation, and overall stress.
- Tinnitus, while often not medically ‘curable,’ does not have to be an aggravation you just have to live with. It can be reduced, relieved, and managed much like other chronic, incurable disorders. By approaching it as a problem involving the hearing mechanism, brain mechanism, and thinking mechanism, relief can be found from this sometimes-unbearable condition.
- Misophonia and hyperacusis are not something made up in your mind. Sensitivity to sounds – be they soft or loud, specific or general – is real and sometimes debilitating. While research is ongoing, these are relatively rare conditions and many well-intentioned professionals are not equipped to identify or successfully treat them. Misophonia and hyperacusis are often misdiagnosed and treated improperly. We have found that our combination of treatments developed from collaboration with other top professionals in the field of sound sensitivities can relieve, reduce, or alleviate the suffering and distress of misophonia and hyperacusis.
