Wax Removal

Wax removal involves some preparation to soften the wax. Please ensure your patient calls ahead to receive instructions before arriving for their appointment. We recommend using Audiologist Choice drops for 3 nights prior to wax removal. Drops are not recommended for patients with perforated tympanic membranes.

All our clinicians are trained in wax removal using curettes. Additionally, wax removal is offered in all of our clinics using the Gomco Suction Pump.

Wax removal with irrigation is not recommended for the following patients:

  • Perforated tympanic membrane
  • History of perforated tympanic membrane
  • History of ear surgery
  • History of systemic diseases due to increased risk of infection

A physician referral is not required to book wax removal at Hearing Institute Atlantic and all wax removals have a fee of $20.00.
