Most people think that ear infections are a problem that mostly occur with children, but many adults can suffer from these as well. Bacteria, viruses, and fluid are some of the many causes of ear infections, which can lead to complaints and symptoms such as ear pain, hearing loss, and drainage.

To fully evaluate the cause and eventual treatment, a consultation with a physician will be made, during which the physicians will discuss your symptoms and then conduct an examination. Other diagnostic audiometric tests may be performed as well.
