Clear Choice Hearing and Balance, an audiology practice specializing in tinnitus and other hearing and imbalance disorders, recently opened a new office in Westfall Surgery Center, 1065 Senator Keating Blvd., Rochester.
The hearing center expanded to Brighton to meet the growing demands of hearing loss. Since opening its Greece office on Canal Landing Boulevard in 2008, the need for diagnosis and treatment for hearing loss, vertigo, poor equilibrium, and tinnitus continues to grow due to an aging population and environmental issues that put ears at risk, said founder and owner Christine Tirk.
“We see the growing need to provide quality health care for hearing loss and other disorders of hearing and balance,” Tirk said. “We are excited to be expanding our practice to the Westfall Surgery Center, where we can better serve even more patients who suffer from tinnitus, vertigo, and other debilitating disorders that affect the quality of life.”
Americans with hearing loss have doubled between 2000 and 2015, with one in five adults and one in five teens having hearing loss and tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, according to the Hearing Health Foundation.
“Our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools enable us to precisely diagnose and address hearing loss better than before by guiding options or treatment of a variety of disorders of the ears,” audiologist Ron D’Angelo said. “Often the clinical signs we discover result in referrals for appropriate medical care.”
D’Angelo said the hearing loss has been associated with cognitive decline, dementia, depression, hospitalization, and heart disease, among other diseases and conditions.
Clear Choice Hearing and Balance serve thousands of patients in the five-county area and is recognized as a leader in tinnitus treatment.
