In Reply Dr Tunkel and colleagues are correct in pointing out that the AAO-HNSF tinnitus clinical practice guideline1 was reviewed by stakeholders from multiple specialties. The guideline also explicitly stated that it will be updated 5 years after its publication (unless new literature is published that would change the guideline). The JAMA Clinical Guidelines Synopsis on tinnitus will be corrected online, changing the rating on both of these issues to good.
