FAQ

What should I do to prepare for my appointment?

We ask that patients apply ear wax softening drops at least twice a day for a minimum of five days prior to ear irrigation. The more often you apply it, the easier the procedure will be. Some patients apply the drops four times a day. After instilling the drops, keep your head tilted for approximately five minutes to allow the drops to penetrate the wax. Please do not plug your ears with cotton wool afterwards as all this does is absorb the drops.

Can I get a same-day appointment? Do you offer walk-in clinic services?

This is often possible, but not guaranteed. It depends on how busy we are. You will be seen very quickly- usually within days.

Do you perform irrigation on children?

We can perform ear irrigation on children as long as they are capable of understanding what the procedure involves, are happy to have it done, and are accompanied by a responsible adult.
