Providing expert tinnitus support to West Texas

Tinnitus is defined as the perception of noise or ringing in the ears. 

Did you know that 10-15% of adults experience tinnitus? It is estimated that it impacts between 29.7 and 50 million Americans. Tinnitus is also the number one service-connected disability among the veteran population. 

Many patients with tinnitus experience significant disturbance from the condition.  This disturbance can cause stress, anxiety and sleeplessness and have adverse effects on the patient’s overall health.  Patients are often told that they must learn to live with this condition leaving many feeling hopeless and frustrated. 

At Cornerstone Audiology, Dr. Marisha Beck is thoroughly trained in Progressive Tinnitus Management principles through her years of working for the Veteran’s Administration. 

She also obtained her Certificate Holder-Tinnitus Management certification from the American Board of Audiology.  Using her extensive knowledge and training, Dr. Beck has helped hundreds of patients with tinnitus.
