At Happy Ears Hearing Center, our passion is helping individuals of all ages with hearing loss to hear their absolute best. Part of providing outstanding hearing care to our patients also includes ensuring they receive appropriate medical intervention when it relates to their hearing loss. In Arizona, there are many physicians who see patients for ear-related disorders, however, not all physicians are empathetic or have good bedside manners.

We have been fortunate to work with many different medical doctors for our patients and have been able to form a list of the physicians that provide what we consider outstanding and excellent patient-centered care. As we continue to work with physicians and receive positive patient feedback regarding their experiences, we will continue to update our list of trusted providers.

The otologist/neurotologist surgeons we have listed on this page have proven they have exceptional talent and skill pertaining to cochlear implant surgeries and outcomes and are highly recommended by Happy Ears Hearing Center. Their skill has been measured both pre and post-surgery with outcome measures that are nothing short of amazing.

What is an Otologist/Neurotologist?

Otologists and neurotologists are board-certified otolaryngologists who have completed an additional two years of training to better treat ear disorders like cholesteatoma and Meniere’s Disease. Otologists specialize in diagnosing hard-to-treat or recurrent middle ear probelms and performing complicated ear surgeries. Neurotologists focus on neurological-related ear-related conditions, including facial nerve disorders, skull base, ear, and facial nerve tumors, implantable hearing devices such as Cochlear Implants and Bone Anchored Hearing Aids, and vestibular disorders. Otologists deal more closely with treatment of middle ear conditions, while neurotologists focus on conditions of the inner ear. When trained in both areas, they are able to diagnose and offer detailed treatment plans for hearing loss.

What is an Otolaryngologist/ENT Physician?

Otolaryngologists are physicians that specialize in the treatment and management of diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat, (ENT), and related bodily structures. Otolaryngologists are commonly referred to as ENT (ear, nose, and throat) physicians and provide both medical and surgical care. These physicians are uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat anything from sinusitis to throat cancer to voice problems.
