He specializes in the diagnosis and management of hearing loss in patients of all ages. Dr. LeMay offers computerized electronystagmography (ENG/VNG), which assists in the diagnosis of vertigo and balance problems. In addition, he offers a comprehensive evaluation of tinnitus and central auditory processing disorders in children and adults. His philosophy is to obtain as thorough an initial evaluation as possible in order to determine whether the patient’s hearing loss will benefit from a medical or surgical solution, or if hearing instrument technology is appropriate.

Dr. LeMay works closely with a number of ear, nose, and throat physicians and surgeons throughout the region so when medical or surgical intervention is needed, an appropriate referral is made. Each patient is treated on a case-by-case basis and given a personalized solution.
