How To Select a Tinnitus Specialist

I am often asked to recommend a tinnitus clinician in this geographical location or that. The problem with such recommendations is that each tinnitus sufferer brings his or her unique circumstances to the table, and any given tinnitus clinician might or might not be a good fit with respect to those circumstances.

My suggestion when seeking the “right” tinnitus clinician would be to do a google search and locate several in your area. Contact each of their clinics, and ask for a return call so you could very briefly discuss your situation to see if it made sense for you to arrange an appointment.

If you do not get a call back from the clinician within a week or so, then I would cross that person off my list immediately.

For those who do call back, you can generally tell within a few minutes if it is worth your time to make an appointment for an initial assessment. And here are some questions you might raise during that appointment as you decide whether to pursue whatever treatment program the clinician recommends:

 · What is the approach the clinician is recommending, and why is it appropriate for me?

 · What type of training has the clinician undergone in the use of that approach?

 · How long has the clinician been using the approach?

 · How many tinnitus sufferers has the clinician treated with the approach?

 · What is the clinician's success rate using the approach?

 · How does the clinician define and measure success?
