Otology and Neurotology

We offer comprehensive care of all ear, balance, facial nerve, and skull base disorders.  We offer state-of-the-art diagnostic evaluations, and treatment of all disorders of hearing, balance, tinnitus (ear noises), and skull base tumors. Dr. Robert Sataloff stopped neurotology and skull base surgery in January 2017 when we were joined by Dr. Brian McKinnon. All of our surgeons are vastly experienced clinicians and academicians. We have full-time audiologists and offer comprehensive testing for hearing and balance disorders, as well as hearing aid services.
