At Riverton Hospital's Audiology Clinic, we provide hearing tests, hearing screenings, and hearing aid fittings and follow-up. We treat patients who have hearing loss, difficulty understanding conversation, tinnitus, dizziness, wax obstruction, and sudden hearing loss — and patients who need or have questions about hearing aids.
Our audiologist uses state-of-the-art equipment, the latest technological updates, and best clinical practices to improve the quality of life of everyone we serve.
Free Hearing Screenings:
Our audiologist will screen your hearing thresholds in the main speech frequency range. Screenings are provided in a sound booth and are preceded by a screening for the presence of wax and a discussion of each patient’s hearing health history. A hearing screening appointment will take approximately 30 minutes. And it is FREE.
Comprehensive Audiometric Exams:
This exam includes a complete hearing threshold finding across the entire hearing frequency range. It will determine the amount and type of hearing loss. It includes other tests that measure hearing in quiet and noisy backgrounds to determine how well an individual hears spoken language. Tympanometry, a test that evaluates the ear drum and middle ear space, may also be performed.
Hearing Aid Fitting and Services:
We evaluate all available hearing aid manufacturers’ products and present our patients with the best options to address their individual hearing problems. When hearing aids are purchased from our clinic, we’ll provide cleanings, adjustments, and other service for the life of the hearing aid — even after the warranty expires. We want to make sure our patients benefit as much as possible from their investment in better hearing.
Assistive Listening Device Fitting:
There are many devices in addition to a hearing aid that can help with everyday communication for those with hearing problems. These devices can work when you’re on the telephone, watching television, at a movie theater, at church, etc. There are also other devices that can help you hear doorbells and alarm clocks. We'll help you find the tools that are right for you.
We can make earmolds for almost any need available. This includes earmolds for hearing aids, iPod use, hearing protection (for hunting, concerts, and other loud environments), swim molds for water protection, and musician’s earmolds. Some earmolds can be made right in the clinic for a lower cost.
