For many years, we have been concerned about the outcomes of ear piercing procedures done at local jewelry stores. We have seen an unacceptable number of reactions to jewelry and localized infections. As a result, we elected to offer medical ear piercing as a value added service to both patients and not-yet-patients.
Dr. Elizabeth "Zizzy" Bucchieri, Dr. Andrea Mann and certified nurse practitioner Julia Caschera perform the ear piercing procedure using the Blomdahl method. Having this procedure done in our office ensures the use of safe technique, the availability of sound advice, and the presence of a comfortable atmosphere for your child during this exciting event. Our medical grade earrings are made from non-allergic materials (primarily titanium and medical plastic). We have performed hundreds of ear piercing procedures over the past 6 years with a less than 1% rate of reaction.
The fee for ear piercing in our office is $60 and includes the cost of the earrings. It is not a service that is covered by insurance. We accept patients as young as six months for this procedure. Our policy precludes second piercings of ears (we are able to re-pierce an ear that has closed because of infection or inflammation) and piercings of other body parts.
Please call 216-291-9210 to schedule an appointment to pierce your child’s ears.
