Welcome to The Hearing Device Center at the California Ear Institute
in Portola Valley, California

At the Hearing Device Center, all providers are either Audiologists or Doctor of Audiology degree recipients. In addition, the Hearing Device Center couples medical evaluation by Physicians and Surgeons who have completed both an ENT Residency and further specialized training. Two year Fellowships in Otology / Neurotology involve focused study on disorders of hearing and balance with a total of 7 years after Medical School is completed. In many conditions (as simple as wax removal by the MD or as complex as investigation for a brain tumor causing hearing loss), medical expertise is necessary to improve, stabilize, or evaluate hearing impairment. We believe team treatment involving both specialists provides the best care available.
