Earwax Management

Earwax, scientifically known as cerumen, is a waxy substance produced by glands in the ear canal. Its primary function is to safeguard the delicate structures of the ear from external particles and potential infections. This remarkable natural barrier not only traps dirt, dust, and debris but also maintains the optimal moisture level in the ear canals, preventing dryness and discomfort. However, in certain cases, the accumulation of earwax can lead to various issues and discomfort.

This is hands down the best place for anyone looking for an audiologist. Very individual attention to you and your needs. I use to go to 1 of the big ENT group and they never tweaked my hearing aids like Dr. C and Gayle do. You are not a number here. Was upset that things might change when Dr. Seaborg retired but not so..the same excellent service. Christina found someone who could fill her very big shoes (been coming for 9+ years.) I tell everyone they need hearing aids that this is the place to come. I brought my 82 year old mother-in-law and Dr. C and Gayle are always soooo patient with her. Thank you for the same awesome awesome care. Ive been wearing hearing aids for over 20 years and I am hearing better now than I did 10 years ago.

Premier Audiology has state-of-the-art equipment and the expertise to make thorough use of it to give the patient a complete picture of their hearing health. The staff is personable, knowledgeable and caring. They put the patient at ease and always follow through to ensure the best results possible. I recommend Premier Audiology and staff to anyone with any kind of hearing issue! Premier Audiology is the only such provider to consider if you want the best level of care possible.

I visited Premier Audiology & Hearing Aid Center without an appointment to see if they could help resolve a problem with the hearing aids of a relative, who is 97 years old. Dr. Cabrera and Gale Prakin were most accepting, accommodating and helpful. They are an asset to the community and profession.

Dr. Cabrera took the time to carefully listen to my concerns, and then to explain my test results and options. He even kept prompting me to ask more questions to ensure that I understood what my test results meant. He is clearly interested in finding the correct diagnosis and best solutions.
