Earwax also has antibacterial properties, which helps keep your ear healthy. But sometimes, the earwax has a hard time naturally working its way out of the canal. An earwax blockage occurs when earwax accumulates in your ear or becomes too difficult to wash away naturally. The most common symptoms of a wax blockage are:

"First time here and was really impressed! I saw Dr. Ryan and he explained everything clearly and at a level I could easily understand. He was honest and upbeat and didn't try to force me into anything, which I really appreciated. He seemed like he really cared and wanted to help me and get my hearing situated."
"This was my first visit ever to a "hearing aid " office. I saw Dr Ryan Leahy. From the front desk to leaving the building 2 hours later, I felt welcomed and comfortable. Dr Ryan explained everything as he proceeded and was very professional, patient, and kind in his treatment of me. I left the office with hearing aids and a smile on my face. I would highly recommend this office to anyone."
"Dr. Judy Olson provided my initial hearing test and prescribed, fitted and tuned my hearing aids. I recently got a call from their office for a follow-up visit to check that the hearing aids were still working properly. While there, she also checked and cleaned the hearing aids and fitted them with new cushions. She indicated that they do this regularly. This is a great follow-up service she provides. "
