    Does your office offer minimally invasive laproscopic surgery?

    Yes, ourphysicians are all experienced in minimally invasive "belly-button" surgery that allows most surgical procedures to be done in an out-patient setting without an overnight stay. Our physicians are also trained in Robot Surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System. This new technology allows our trained doctors to perform complex surgical procedures through a few tiny incisions; as a result many patients experience less postoperative pain, a quicker recovery and a faster return to normal activities.

    What is involved in a hearing evaluation?

    The first step in a hearing evaluation will be a detailed case history regarding your hearing health. Your answers, as well as any additional information, will provide valuable background information. Next, a diagnostic hearing evaluation will take place using listening and measurement devices. After testing is complete, your audiologist will review the results. If a medical condition is discovered or suspected, you will be referred to a medical doctor for treatment and consultation. If the test results indicate you would benefit from the use of hearing instruments, various options most appropriate for your hearing needs will be discussed.

    Should I get my eyes examined if I don’t need eyeglasses?

    Yes. An eye exam is much more than just checking your vision. A comprehensive eye health evaluation is also performed during an eye exam. A person may have no complaints and 20/20 vision and still suffer from conditions such as retinal breaks or tears, glaucoma, cataracts, retinopathy from diabetes or high blood pressure, melanoma of the eye, etc.

    Why should I be concerned about glaucoma if my vision is fine?

    The most common types of glaucoma involve a slowly progressing destruction of the Optic Nerve of the eye. In general, it initially affects peripheral vision in a way that isn’t noticeable without specialized testing. A person with glaucoma will usually be in the advanced stages before noticing any problems with vision. With special testing glaucoma is usually easy to detect in the early stages and it is treatable with eye drops. In some cases surgery may be required if eye drops do not adequately control the glaucoma.
