To ensure the safety of our patients, staff, and providers, Advanced ENT has limited our operational hours and staff due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Our offices will now be opened from 8am-4pm Monday through Friday. Our Stratford office will remain closed. Starting the week of May 4th we will start seeing more patients in our offices with a limited schedule and heightened safety measures. Telemedicine appointments will still be available for higher risk patients and for routine follow ups (test results, prescription refills, etc).

Meniere’s Syndrome is an uncommon condition of the inner ear that causes sudden attacks of vertigo and hearing loss. A patient with this disorder will report sudden episodes of dizziness usually described as spinning, fluctuating hearing loss, a noise in the ear frequently described as “ocean roaring” and a feeling of fullness or pressure in the affected ear.
The exact cause of Meniere’s syndrome is unknown but the symptoms are thought to be due to a rupture of the delicate membranes of the inner ear which allows a mixing of the two inner ear fluids which in turn causes an electrical shut down in the inner ear. The diagnosis is usually made by medical history, audiometric findings and ruling out other conditions that may mimic this disorder. For this reason, anyone with these symptoms should seek medical attention so that the correct diagnosis can be made and the proper treatment instituted.
