As Seen in the Wall Street Journal, the SoundBite™ Hearing System is Now Available through Our Audiology Department 

For patients with single-sided deafness, this new system uses the well-established principle of bone conduction to transmit sound – but does it via the teeth to the inner ear —with a removable in-the-mouth device. (Past surgical procedures involved an anchor in the skull and was far more invasive and required longer recovery time.) To learn more, or to schedule a consultation, contact Dr. Lisa Young, Au.D. at 303-776-1234 ext 346.

Check us out on YouTube

Check out our new channel on YouTube.  We will be uploading 2 minute videos for our  "Your Health" series here.  These video's offer patients a chance to be introduced to our physicians and learn more about common health topics.  If there is a topic you are interested in learning more about please e-mail us or leave a comment on our channel. 



New rules concerning prescriptions for controlled substances 

We are required by law to notify our patients about a new law that has gone into effect state wide with regard to the reporting of controlled substances. The Colorado State Legislature is now requiring pharmacies to report all prescriptions for controlled substances, including cough medications containing codeine or hydrocodone, prescription pain medication, sleeping pills, and many medications for ADHD, to a public database. The information pharmacies are required to report includes patient name, birth date, address, doctor name, payment method, drug name, refills, etc. The information can only be accessed by state regulatory boards, doctors, and law enforcement agencies.  



New Kidzsafe Earbuds are Now Available in Our Audiology Department

Kidzsafe earbuds keep the volume on ipods or any other audio device safe automatically.
These earbuds are compatible with any audio device and and matter how high the volume is turned up, the volume level will always remain below 85 decibels.  Experts agree that listening above 85 decibels is when hearing damage can begin. A great way to help protect your child's hearing.

Dr. Iqbal was recently named to the advisory board for the Celiac Sprue Association. She has been recognized by this national organization for her work and devotion in detecting Celiac disease in patients and her extensive knowledge with regards to this condition. Dr. Iqbal regularly works with patients who live with this condition to educate and make dietary modifications that can dramatically improve their lives.
