At the Speech, Hearing & Balance Center, we provide help to people who suffer from hearing loss and other hearing problems. About 36 million people in the United States suffer from hearing loss, and hearing problems can affect newborns, children, adolescents, and adults.
Because hearing loss affects each person’s life in a unique way, it is important to receive individualized help with your hearing loss.
The audiologists at the Speech, Hearing & Balance center have years of experience assisting people of all ages with hearing loss by testing for hearing loss, providing hearing aids or other devices that can help you hear better, and by servicing hearing devices.
Our audiologists primarily assist patients with hearing tests, hearing aids
and other assistive listening devices.
We provide comprehensive hearing evaluations for patients of all ages, newborn through adult. Our hearing tests feature:
- Pure tone and speech audiometry to determine hearing levels and speech understanding.
- Child-friendly play audiometry. Our team approach to play audiometry, a method of testing children, produces an accurate and thorough hearing test for children.
- Impedance audiometry used to evaluate the eardrum, Eustachian tube, middle ear function and the acoustic reflex.
- Auditory brainstem response (ABR) tests for infants and others who cannot perform a traditional hearing test. This test is also used to help identify nerve abnormalities such as an acoustic tumor.
- Industrial hearing tests are also available to those who are exposed to high noise at their work.
We support the community by providing free monthly hearing screenings the last Friday of every month. An appointment is necessary. Patients fitted with hearing aids are provided unlimited follow-up visits for any necessary help.
