Hearing & Audiology

Our audiologists are licensed and nationally certified. They work closely with the ear, nose and throat team and offer cost-effective hearing aid options. 

Hearing Assessments and Hearing Aids 

First, an audiologist will ask you questions about your hearing history. Then the audiologist will test your ability to understand words and hear tones for a variety of different pitches. After this assessment, the audiologist will discuss your hearing loss, if there is any, and outline appropriate hearing aid options, including new digital hearing aids utilize advanced technology, are discrete and easy to use.  

During a hearing aid fitting the audiologist will customize the settings for your hearing aids based on your specific hearing needs. The audiologist will explain how to take care of your hearing aids, including how to change the batteries and clean the hearing aids. You will have a follow-up appointment two weeks later to check your progress and make any necessary adjustments. You will be able to assess the digital hearing aids during a 30-day trial period.

Risks of not hearing well include accidents, poor quality of life, depression and anxiety, dementia and cognitive decline. If you're experiencing hearing loss, it's important to get the care you need.

  • Increasing the volume on the television/radio
  • Hearing but not always clearly understanding speech
