"I have had horrible allergies for years. Prior to coming to Crosstimbers ENT, I had as many as 5 sinus infections each year, which meant I had as many rounds of antibiotics prescribed by my GP. Since opting for a relationship with Crosstimbers, I have learned effective alternative methods of controlling my sinus issues. I still have allergies, but I haven't had a sinus infection in nearly 3 years. Thanks to Allergy Specialist, Jennifer Taylor, she has identified my allergies and she is doing an awesome job of helping me overcome my issues. Thanks Jennifer Taylor, Jennifer Paris and Dr Shellenberger."- D.B. / Google / May 12, 2021

Diagnosis and Treatment for Tinnitus
Tinnitus is diagnosed by meeting with a seasoned ear, nose, and throat doctor. Typically, a hearing exam and a physical assessment are performed to confirm the condition. From there, different treatments may be used to improve ear ringing. These solutions often include earwax removal, management of hearing loss, and treating an underlying illness, such as Eustachian tube dysfunction. In some cases, changing up current medications, undergoing counseling, and using noise suppression techniques can help.
