Tinnitus Researchers Dr John McGuire & Dr Hamid Djalilian


Dr. John McGuire and Dr. Hamid Djalilian are two ear nose and throat doctors who specialize in hearing and tinnitus. In fact, Dr. McGuire himself has suffered from tinnitus for years. Together, these doctors were frustrated by the typical answer that the medical community gives to those suffering from tinnitus: “You just have to live with it”. It was out of this frustration that they formed Mind:Set Technologies in 2008 to bring research-based customized tinnitus treatment that will be accessible and inexpensive to everyone in the world.

Through innovations at Mind:Set Technologies, Dr. McGuire and Dr. Djalilian helped to create a new method of providing customized therapy for those who suffer from tinnitus. This novel and multifaceted treatment approach, the BeyondTinnitus Therapy Program, allows for intensive, targeted therapy that is individually tailored to the user, an approach which yields faster and more complete tinnitus relief. At their core, our therapies are designed to achieve neuroplastic changes in the brain centers responsible for tinnitus rather than just cover up the symptoms. We aim not just to offer relief but to truly “Reset your Mind”!
