FREE Tinnitus Screening

Described as “ringing in the ears”, tinnitus (“tin-a-tus” or “tin-eye-tus”) is a subjective condition that is only heard by the patient and no one else. There are varying causes to tinnitus, including exposure to extremely loud noises and medications. Currently, the cure has not been found, but there are solutions to symptom management that are helping people across the country.

According to the Mayo Clinic, tinnitus effects 15 to 20 percent of people. After completing this screening, you will receive a symptom score with the steps you need to take to get specialized care for your unique case.

This questionnaire is for informational purposes only and is not intended as a diagnostic evaluation.
