Ear Care Lab is the first dedicated microsuction ear wax removal specialist clinic in Ealing and one of the first in North West London.

Ear Care Lab is the first dedicated microsuction ear wax removal specialist clinic in Ealing and one of the first in North West London. Microsuction is an ear cleaning technique using either a binocular microscope or a light loupe and a suction device. It is the same technique used by Ear, Nose and Throat specialists and is superior to other methods of wax removal such as water syringing (irrigation) and ear candling. Microsuction is the safest, gentlest and most effective method of removing ear wax and usually does not require water or pre-visit ear wax softeners/drops. All our consultation and microsuction services are provided only by experienced GP doctors with a specialist interest in Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) medicine.

Our clinic is appointment based and is open from Monday to Saturday, 9am to 8pm (Mon – Thurs), 9am to 7pm (Fri) and 9am to 12pm on Saturdays. Appointments can be made online or by ringing 0208 004 7808. Home visits are also available by special arrangement.

We provide this private service as part of Corfton Road GP Surgery in Central Ealing.

Ear Care Lab is conveniently situated in the heart of Ealing and in close proximity to Ealing Broadway, North Ealing and Park Royal tube stations (approximately 5-10 minutes walk from each).
