Fast, courteous, answered all my questions over the phone, with empathy and understanding, which is very important to me considering I'm a RMA. No unnecessary questioning or wasting of my time. Everyone was great and I greatly appreciate that. Front desk guy you rock, all triage in back office y'all are on point, and the APRN thank you for understanding my situation and helping me. Y'all made me cry, because being in this field today is a true rarity to come across a full clinic staff that rock like y'all did. THANK YOU!!!!

Access Medical Centers, Tulsa (Brookside) - 1217 E 48th St, Tulsa
I was experiencing sharp right chest pain that began suddenly the evening before and may have been related to trimming and mowing the yard. The potential symptoms of what may or may not be a heart attack are vague enough that I decided to stop by the Brookside Urgent Care Center here in Tulsa. I have used this urgent care center before, and like my previous visits, the staff and Physician Assistant (PA) were exemplary. My EKG was reassuringly normal, suggesting I strained an upper right chest muscle, which is easier to do as I get older.  The most important thing to say is that I appreciate the staff and PAs at the Brookside Urgent Care Center. They are professional, efficient, and kind. They would have referred me to the ER at Ascension St. John Medical Center if I had needed more extensive care.

Great experience at the urgent care today. Madi at the front desk was super friendly and helpful. I was roomed right away and tests running. Nurse Amy was friendly and professional. Nurse Heather went above and beyond to come let me know that it had started to rain because she knew I had ridden a scooter to the clinic. The provider Amy was fast, friendly, and efficient. Overall a great experience. Would get sick again. 10/10.

Took my daughter in for a rash front lady was not friendly before I could even say anything she said if your not here by appointment scan that paper and sit down I just found this so rude like we were just a number no care to weather I even had a phone or was capable of even checking in that way so then we waited for about 30 mins in a very hot waiting room. So hot my daughter was starting to sweat by time we got called back we almost went and sat in the car till it was our turn. My daughter had to use the restroom, when we went in there was trash left in there that looked like someone started to take out but the just left there beside the trash can once we got passed the waiting room it was much cooler in fact kind of cold so not sure why they are heating out pts while they wait to be seen but I guess they figure as long as they are comfortable who cares about us. The provider how ever seemed nice but was in our room for less than 5 mins I guess could tell by glancing at her what she had. The oral prescription she ended up giving her made my daughter sick so I called around 630-7 and they were already closed even though it’s advertised online that they were open till 8 so I had to wait to get it changed till the morning however the PA there to answer my call was nice and patient and understanding and got her a new script sent pretty quickly!

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.

Ear Wax Removal FAQs

  • How much does an ear wax removal cost in Oakhurst?

    Without insurance, an ear wax extraction in Oakhurst can cost between $40 and $110. If your insurance covers ear wax removal, you will typically only be responsible for a $5 to $75 copay.

  • Is ear wax removal covered by my insurance?

    Ear wax extractions and consultations with ENT specialists are sometimes covered by insurance, especially if your problem is severe. Book a consultation and check your coverage in the Oakhurst area today.

  • 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 Oakhurst?

    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 Oakhurst.

  • 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.
