Dr. Anwar is skilled and dedicated at his trade. He is thorough and compassionate and I felt so comfortable having him look at my sinus issues. He's a great listener and takes the time to explain everything in terms I understand. Most of all I appreciate that he did not push procedures or medications on me! I feel like he genuinely cared about my well being and I trust his opinion as he's extremely knowledgeable.

– Roya K.

Essential Tips for Water Enthusiasts 🏊‍♂️👂

As the popularity of water activities grows, the risk of developing surfer's ear, or exostosis, increases. Cold water surfers are particularly susceptible, with a 600 percent higher rate of exostosis compared to warm water enthusiasts. To safeguard your ears and reduce the likelihood of developing this condition, follow these preventative measures:

-Custom Ear Protection: Invest in custom-fit ear plugs and wear a swim cap or hood to shield your ears from cold water and wind.

-Choose Conditions Wisely: Avoid swimming, diving, or surfing in extremely cold and windy weather to minimize exposure to conditions that contribute to exostosis.

-Healthy Ears Only: Refrain from entering the water if you have an active ear infection to prevent exacerbating the issue.

-Keep Ears Dry: Before swimming, ensure your ears are dry, and after water activities, promptly dry your ears to prevent moisture buildup.

-Use Caution with Drying: Safely dry your ears with a hair dryer on a low setting. Avoid using Q-tips, as they can push debris deeper into the ear canal, remove protective earwax, and potentially cause irritation or infection.

Remember, a dry ear is less prone to infection, so prioritize keeping your ears moisture-free to safeguard against surfer's ear. Enjoy your water adventures responsibly while protecting your ear health.
