Tinnitus

If you experience a constant ringing, buzzing, or even roaring in your ears, you may have tinnitus. It varies from person to person in terms of cause, severity, and the sound they hear, but in all cases, the noise they experience is not caused by any external stimuli. Tinnitus does not cause hearing loss; however, this condition can still have a negative impact on your life. Tinnitus can lead to difficulties with relationships, career challenges, and even disrupt your ability to simply sit back and enjoy your life.
Tinnitus may stem from a variety of causes. The most common causes, however, include exposure to loud noises, ototoxic drugs, excessive ear wax, and age-related hearing loss. Identifying the cause of your tinnitus is a critical step toward developing an individualized treatment plan. Depending on the cause and severity of your tinnitus symptoms, there are evidence-based treatment options to help address that ringing in your ears and offer you relief.
To treat your tinnitus symptoms, we may recommend tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT), the use of hearing devices, counseling, and/or relaxation methods. At our Peoria tinnitus clinic, we provide a personalized, comprehensive approach to tinnitus treatment. Schedule an appointment with one of our audiologists and allow us to show you how much better your life can be.

Tinnitus Treatment

  • ReSound One & LiNX Quattro with Made-for-iPhone Tinnitus Relief App
  • Oticon Tinnitus SoundSupport™
  • Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT)
  • Widex Zen Tinnitus Treatment

Hyperacusis

Hyperacusis is defined as increased sensitivity to everyday noises, including your television, chewing, or even just a conversation. It can vary in severity and symptoms may include migraines, annoyance, daily discomfort, or even ear pain that makes the simplest of activities a real struggle.
Anyone can develop hyperacusis, regardless of age or previous hearing health, and there are a variety of causes for this condition. Often, hyperacusis is experienced along with tinnitus, which is a perception of a slight roaring, ringing, or clicking sound in the ear. Treatment for both of these problems is similar, and our audiologists are expertly trained in both. Find relief from your hyperacusis by scheduling an appointment at our Peoria hyperacusis center.

Hearing Tests and Evaluations

The most accurate method to evaluate hearing is a hearing test in a soundproof booth conducted by an audiologist. Online tests can be misleading and fail to detect bigger issues – such as acoustic neuroma. A full hearing evaluation provides your audiologist with crucial information that informs them about your auditory health. If you notice a change to your hearing, even a minor one, you should consider scheduling a hearing exam.
During this process, your audiologist will do the following:

  • Review medical and hearing health and history
  • Examine your ear canal and outer ear with an otoscope to review for any abnormalities
  • Perform a hearing test, which allows us to identify the unique frequencies that you may struggle to hear
  • Review the results with you and provide comprehensive information that will answer any and all questions

After a hearing test and evaluation, our audiologists will make a recommendation that works best for your own lifestyle, budget, and type of hearing loss.

Hearing Aids

At Sound Relief Hearing Center, we only offer the most outstanding hearing aids offered by our manufacturers. While you can find hearing aids from stores like Costco or even online, you should not settle for inferior technology or care. Experience the difference with our hearing experts in Peoria. We know that your visit to our audiology clinic will be worthwhile no matter what you decide.
Our audiologists incorporate comprehensive hearing exams, years of expertise, and the finest service to diagnose and respond to your specific type of hearing loss. We provide recommendations that are tailored to your lifestyle, budget, and personal needs. Finding the perfect hearing aid is an important step and can even be life-changing. The renowned experience of our doctors and staff in Peoria will make this process effortless.

Wax Removal

Ear wax is completely natural and even good for your ears. Also called cerumen, ear wax is secreted within the passage of the outer ear and protects and cleans the ear canal. While this is good for your ear and helps to protect it from bacteria, the ear can produce too much wax, which may reduce your ability to hear or even develop into tinnitus.
To remedy this issue, an audiologist can remove the excess wax during an ear wax removal treatment. Using a curette and/or ear irrigation, they will gently flush out the excessive wax. Depending on the amount of time it takes to remove the ear wax, we charge between $50 – $100 per ear.

I had a great visit here. The office is very inviting! The front desk receptionist was very nice! She was so easy to work with and talk to! Then, it gets more interesting. 🧐 They have coffee and chocolate chip cookies while you wait in their beautiful lobby. Amazing! The Dr. came to get me from the lobby promptly at my appointment time, 10:00 am. The doctor was very informative, patient, and kind. She spent around 2 hours helping me and explained everything. She did not rush me, and I know that she cares! Thank you all so much again! Dr. Kang was awesome!

I can't thank the staff at sound relief enough for helping me understand my tinnitus and how to deal with my hearing loss. I am in my early 40's and am so happy I made the call when I did. I had no idea I had any damage until I went in and had a hearing test. Then upon speaking with the Dr's, they explained my options and guided me in the right direction. Getting educated is one of the most important things a person can do and it helps you move forward in life. I am done being frustrated, upset, and depressed! I have a new outlook and know now what is going on in my ears/head. Makes a world of difference. Trust me! The staff alone is such a joy and a pleasure to work with. I always laugh and have a good time while I'm at the office. They really do care and are sincere!! It's been 2+ years for me and I will continue my journey with sound relief for as long as they will have me. 🙂

Mr Chang and I have both really been helped by Sound Relief, his hearing loss and my hyperacusis. Dr Drew and Dr Bomina and Mary are experts in programming our hearing devices to exactly what we need as our hearing issues improve. Such a beautiful and relaxing office environment, friendly. We always enjoy our visits and look forward to more this year!
I was amazed on my first visit. It started with the assistance of Mary in making my appointment. Dr Kang was a pleasure to deal with. I've booked a total hearing review. Thanks.

Never rush thru visits. Answer questions with explanations that are understandable.Dr Kang is the best. Mary manages appointments and helps with pairing phones to aides. The entire office staff sincerely wants to help patients.
One of the best decisions that I have made in my life was to review, (website/videos) visit (in person) and then sign up with Sound Relief Tinnitus and Hearing Center. Since March, 2023 I have been a highly satisfied patient.As most guys are, I was hesitant to admit that I needed help. I could not hear adequately, the ringing in my ears was constant, and frankly I was miserable about my condition.Upon my first visit (it was easy to set up with Mary at the Peoria office) Dr. Bomina Kang conducted a hearing test and I failed miserably. Dr. Bomina next began to explain the causes of my condition. I took comfort from her explanations.Since signing up, (reasonable pricing with insurance covering a portion of the cost) wearing the hearing devices, and following simple directions for usage, I am a changed person. If you want results for your hearing loss and tinnitus, you must visit Sound Relief.You too, can change your life for the better. Follow my lead. Trust my words. You can help yourself. Call this company today.

Both Drs. Bomina and Julie are fantastic!! I’ve seen Dr. Bomina multiple times and she is always so kind, professional, attentive, understanding and helpful, she never rushes me or makes me feel like she needs to get to the next patient. She actually listens to me unlike so many doctors today. Mary, the sweet lady at the front desk is just as amazing at her job. She always has a warm greeting and a smile when I come in. This is a wonderful office with a kind and caring staff. I would recommend them to everyone who needs help concerning hearing.
Excellent service and the really care

I brought my daughter in as she was struggling with ringing in her ears… Mary and Dr Kang were able to get us in very fast… on the first appointment with Dr Kang she was very patient going through the assessment and explaining everything to us… at the end, she diagnosed my daughter with Tinnitus. We agreed that we will wait for 2-3 month while using musician plugs to see if my daughter’s condition gets better.We also asked to try the hearing aids that are typically used to help coping with tinnitus. My daughter’s facial expression changed and she could not believe the difference the hearing aids made… she started crying. What Dr Kang did next was what all physicians should be about… she offered my daughter to keep a set of aids until we decide to order our own set. This was the nicest gesture a physician can make to a patient. Thank you, Dr Kang and Mary, you made my daughter smile again… none of us realized how miserable she was, and she is slowly learning, with your help, how to cope with tinnitus.
