The physicians and staff and Sanford Clinic Ear, Nose & Throat combine their expertise in ear, nose and throat conditions with the personal care that each patient deserves. We promise to deliver medical care that goes beyond the expected. 

When a child has a suspected hearing problem, it is comforting for parents to know there is a non-invasive, safe and comfortable test available. Sanford Clinic Ear, Nose & Throat was the first facility in the region to incorporate new testing equipment called Vivosonic Integrity V500 into their practice. The equipment helps eliminate the use of anesthesia during auditory brainstem response testing, making the technology especially beneficial when used in children.

Sanford Clinic Ear, Nose & Throat can now gather data without the need for sedation or anesthesia. Incorporating Bluetooth technology, it eliminates the need for the audiologist to be very close to the patient while testing is taking place, allowing the patient the freedom to move.

“Giving our patients freedom of mobility is a great advancement in Sanford patient care. It is highly important to us to make our patients as comfortable as possible during testing, which is why we are incorporating this new technology. We always strive to improve our quality of care,” Lori Miller, audiologist at Sanford Clinic Ear, Nose & Throat, said.
