What Is Ear Lavage?
Ear lavage, also referred to as ear irrigation, is provided in order to get rid of excess earwax, cerumen, and foreign materials within the ear. This procedure may be needed if there is a blockage within the ear that could potentially cause damage. Dr. Esmilkrys B. Ramirez and Dr. Carlos Mella-Picel at Health Direction Medical Center perform ear lavage procedures for patients who are experiencing symptoms of ear blockage, including pain and difficulty hearing. If you think you are experiencing ear blockage or believe there is a foreign object in your ear, you should contact one of our Chicago, IL locations to schedule a thorough ear evaluation.
How Is Ear Lavage Performed?
Prior to performing an ear lavage, a thorough examination of your ear will be performed. As an in-office procedure, ear lavage starts with the insertion of an otoscope to gain a better look at the inner ear. Next, a syringe-like tool will be used to insert a saline solution into the ear in order to flush out any foreign materials or excess earwax. If necessary, ear drops may also be provided to help alleviate any symptoms.
Health Direction Medical Center Reviews
I found my forever Dr when I found Dr. Ramirez. I have seen a few doctors in my day and I work in the Healthcare system. Dr. Ramirez is so professional and courteous, she takes the time to listen to me as a patient and she really focuses on my overall health. Not one to just prescribe medicatiin just because she can. I can't believe I picked her out of a list of doctors because I had to because of my insurance. Turns out it was the best choice I could ever make.
Great medical office, wonderful and warm experience from start to finish. Appreciate Dr. Ramirez taking time to go over the diagnosis clearly and treatment options. Was referred over by my Friend and can see why. Highly recommended.
(Translated by Google) A person who is worth 10 people, simply beautiful and who helps his patients so much with his charisma and sympathy, thank you Dr. Ramírez, several people are very proud of you, take good care of yourself because you take good care of us ❤️🙏🏻 (Original) Una persona que vale por 10 personas simplemente bella y que ayuda tanto a sus pacientes con su carisma y su simpatía gracias doctora Ramírez varias personas estamos muy orgullosas de usted cuídese mucho por que usted nos cuida bastante ❤️🙏🏻

Hands down, Dr. Ramirez is the best doctor i've ever had. She has been my PCP and friend for over 10 years. I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you Dr. Ramirez for your dedication to my health, your kindness, and friendship. D.L.
