Ears & Hearing

We take care of all types of ear problems ranging from ear infections to hearing loss.  Even problems as minor as wax can lead to other issues.  Because we are on the beach, ear health can have a major impact on your wellbeing and we are here to help you figure out what the problem is and get you back to what you enjoy.  You can find out about many common ear related concerns in the sections that follow.

Dizziness and balance problems are symptoms of a disorder of your vestibular system, a complex system of interactive reflexes between your inner ears, eyes, brain, muscles, and even your feet.   Because dizziness and balance issues can be so disruptive to your life, we have chosen to make the evaluation and treatment of dizziness and balance a major focus of our clinic.

Coronavirus Update:

Our office is open to serve patients' needs on a case by case basis. We offer tele-visits either on your computer with a webcam or on a mobile device. Doxy.me is a secure video interface that gives you a chance to discuss your concerns with Dr Lait. She will determine if your problem can be handled in the safety your home or if you should be seen urgently. Medications, labs, and xrays can be ordered without an in person visit.
No more than two clients will be in the office at a time, making us less busy and safer than many of the alternatives (or even than the grocery store).
Contact us at 252-489-4682 or online.

We are not conducting testing for COVID-19 or prescribing medications for it. If you feel you need testing and/or treatment, it is recommended that you contact your primary care physician or an Urgent Care Center.
