About Me

In my professional clinic in Auckland central (and also in West Auckland from 1st March 2016) I am offering a diagnosis and treatment service privately that is experienced and affordable and which allows easier access to clinical nurse specialist microscopic ear care when it is needed most. I cater for both adults and children of all ages. I am skilled in the use of the microscope as a diagnostic tool for specialist diagnosis, and treatment of ear disease & infections; I follow evidence based treatment guidelines and use approved topical medications. ACC and War pension clients funded. IHC clients free of charge.

I have been a clinical nurse specialist in the field of Otology (ear disease) for 20 years, assessing diagnosing and treating adults and children for middle and outer ear disease which include:

  • Simple wax removal
  • Impacted wax removal
  • Otitis Externa – acute and chronic canal infections
  • Itchy and irritated canals
  • Acute and chronic Otitis Media
  • Otitis Media with effusion (Glue Ear)
  • Hearing loss – conductive
  • Eustachian dysfunction
  • Discharging ears – perforation or grommet problems
  • Mastoid cavity care

Microscopic Suctioning requires knowledge, skill and training over time as it can be noisy (though most say “it tickles”) and due to the sensitivity of the ear canal, therefore being proficient is essential for a comfortable experience. I often describe it as “taking the icing off a cupcake without touching the cupcake”.
