Ears and Hearing


At the Sacramento Ear, Nose and Throat Audiology Department, our specialists are committed to providing the best possible care for hearing and balance disorders in children and adults in a respectful and comfortable environment. We offer a full spectrum of audiologic services provided by doctorate and masters degree trained audiologists. Diagnostic services include comprehensive hearing testing, tympanometry and acoustic reflex testing for the adult and pediatric populations, auditory brainstem response testing (ABR), videonystagmography (VNG), vestibular treatments, otoacoustic emissions, and central auditory processing evaluations. We also have a cochlear implant department that can determine candidacy and provide all the essential programming and follow-up with the device. Our hearing aid department, SENT Hearing Aid Center provides the latest in hearing aid technology by dispensing audiologists with expertise in amplification strategies and programming.


The Sacramento Ear, Nose and Throat Otology Department is headed up by Kevin McKennan, M.D., one of the Northern California’s very few subspecialists in otology (hearing disorders and their treatments, including cochlear implants) ,neurotology (hearing and balance disorders), and skull base surgery. He is known as a highly-regarded national and international expert in these fields. Dr. McKennan has published many articles and lectured nationally and internationally on various hearing and balance disorder topics, including cochlear implementation, vertigo, and ear tumors.
