Aspen Medical Center Urgent Care, Española - 411 Santa Clara Bridge Rd
My son got hit by a dog I took him in but while we were waiting to be called into see the doctor, I needed to use the bathroom so my son and I went into the bathroom and I went into the handicapped stall but I saw that the toilet was very dirty  it had stool on the bottom part of the toilet and in the toilet itself was very gross so I chose to use the smaller stall which was better. When I came out of the bathroom I told the front desk person and she said that she told the manager but neither the front desk lady nor the manager did anything about it they left it for the next lady to see it and i did not like seeing that nor smelling it… it was rather disgusting and disturbing. I guess they both waited for the janitor to clean it. I got really turned off about the whole situation.. and In my opinion one of them could have cleaned it right away and not rely on someone else to clean it out.

I was tired everyday and felt so discouraged as there is no time to go to a doctor these days when I take care of an elderly relative. I was even thinking the end must be near for me Oh! what a relief to be able to walk right into this well organized clinic —so vested in top notch Doctors —providing me immediate, and the best in quality care, and the Trinity care doctors gave immediate assurance and the assurance that antibiotics would work. They did!! Thank you for being there for people pressed for time and I liken you to the old time country doctors that genuinely care!!

Short Wait Time

I was suffering for many days with allergies problems. Went to Presbyterian Urgent care for the first time, not knowing what to expect. I did not know that I had to make an appointment. I was informed that they were very busy and gave me an appointment for a couple of hours later. My son and I left, we were a couple of blocks from the office and I received a call from the check in nurse to come back, they had a spot for me. (thank God.) The staff, from the front desk, nurse, and the doctor in charge were just great. I am new to Santa Fe, and did not know what to expect from a new area. My first experience with this company was the best. They took great care of me an I will always be thankful. Mrs. Williams

About Professional Ear Wax Removal

Dirt, bacteria, and other small particles that could irritate your ear canal and cause hearing loss are shielded by ear wax. On the other side, too much ear wax can obstruct your ear canal and cause hearing loss. Knowing how to safely and effectively remove ear wax can help you safeguard your hearing and ear health.

Why do we have ear wax?

Ear wax is a natural substance that protects your ears by trapping microscopic debris like dust and bacteria that might otherwise injure them. According to the National Library of Medicine, ear wax also protects the sensitive skin inside your ear canal from water-related irritation (NLM).

As it moves from the inside of your ears to the outside of the ear canal, ear wax gathers dead skin cells, debris, and hair. According to Harvard Medical School, ear wax has antibacterial and antifungal properties, making it an effective natural ear cleanser. It continues by stating that if your ears do not produce or hold enough ear wax, they will be itchy and unpleasant.

Treatment of a common ear condition

Ear wax removal, according to the National Library of Medicine, can help you prevent and avoid hearing loss. According to the National Library of Medicine, most cases of ear wax buildup can be treated at home using treatments that soften the wax so it can be easily removed or washed out. It goes on to state that you may need to seek medical help in some circumstances to avoid injuring your ears or causing an infection.

According to the National Library of Medicine, hearing loss caused by ear wax buildup is usually temporary and disappears after the blockage is removed. Hearing loss that persists after wax removal should be checked and treated by a physician.

The side effects of excessive ear wax

Excessive ear wax can cause ear discomfort and hearing problems, according to the National Library of Medicine. According to the National Library of Medicine, ear wax buildup is associated with ear pain, a perception of blocked ears, and tinnitus (inner ear noises). It's also possible that you have a partial hearing loss that gets worse with time.

The development of ear wax

Ear wax is also known as cerumen. It is a mixture of secretions from sebaceous glands and sweat glands in the outer ear canal's walls, according to Harvard Medical School.

Secretions flow through the inner ear canal and into the outer ear canal when you chew or talk with your jaw, where they dry out and flake. This allows older ear wax deposits to flow out or be removed more easily, according to Harvard Medical School.

Where wax comes from

According to Harvard Medical School, ear wax is a natural ear cleanser produced by glands in the ear canal to protect your ears from harmful dirt and other waste. No one knows why some people have more ear wax problems than others, according to the article.

Older adults with coarse, wiry hairs in their ears have more ear wax buildup problems than others, according to the University of Texas at Austin. Because some hearing aids are designed in such a way that wax cannot easily flow out of the ear canal, hearing aid users have more ear wax than non-users.

Ear wax removal tips

Cotton swabs are frequently used to remove ear wax buildup. Many medical experts advise against using this treatment, according to UC San Diego, because it can push wax deeper into the ear canal. It goes on to state that using wax-softening ear drops, which can be obtained at practically any pharmacy, is the easiest way to clean your ears.

To soften ear wax, the National Library of Medicine suggests using baby oil or mineral oil. With a small piece of cloth or tissue wrapped around your finger, you may simply remove the wax from the outer ear canal once you can see it.

The National Library of Medicine recommends consulting a doctor if you're having problems removing ear wax. A doctor can employ other irrigation procedures, as well as a curette or suction equipment, to remove ear wax.

Tips for hearing-aid wearers

Hearing aid users should have their ear canals inspected for additional wax every three to six months, according to the National Library of Medicine. Ear wax is responsible for 60 percent to 70% of hearing aid degradation, according to Harvard Medical School. If you wear a hearing aid, have your doctor check your ears for ear wax buildup at least once every six months.

  • Who should get an ear wax removed?

    Individuals who are experiencing hearing loss, ear pain, leakage, or unusual coughs should book an appointment for an ear wax extraction.

  • Are video visits available with ENT specialists in Cuartelez?

    While a thorough ENT examination cannot be performed over video, your doctor can evaluate you or your child for most concerns, such as loss of hearing, ear pain, leakage or other basic concerns using telemedicine. They can discuss a care plan, prescribe ear wax softeners, and recommend an in-person visit if deemed necessary, all while you are safe and comfortable at home in Cuartelez.

  • Are video visits with ENT specialists covered by my insurance?

    Telemedicine ear wax removal consultation coverage will vary depending on your circumstances. Typically, if your insurance will not cover an in-person visit, it won’t cover similar appointments via telehealth. Since routine ENT consultations are usually covered by medical insurance, it is likely video visits with ENTs will be similarly covered.

  • If ear wax is removed, will my hearing improve?

    According to the National Library of Medicine, clearing the ear wax obstruction usually restores your hearing completely. Hearing loss is commonly caused by ear wax buildup and lasts until your ears are cleaned.

  • What will happen if I don’t clean my ears?

    You may develop an excessive amount of ear wax if you do not clean your ears on a regular basis. Pain or itching in the ear, ringing in the ear, and a feeling that the ear is full or clogged are all symptoms of too much ear wax, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). According to the National Institutes of Health, if you do not clean your ears, you may experience odor or discharge from the ear, as well as hearing loss.
