Auditory services

Pediatric audiology: Diagnosis and treatment for infants and children with a wide range of auditory disorders, especially with the goal of early intervention during critical periods of auditory, speech and language development. We help our patients navigate insurance coverage and identify other funding programs. Tests include hearing screenings for newborns, visual reinforcement audiometry, conditioned play audiometry, diagnostic auditory brainstem response testing, auditory steady state response testing, and other state-of-the-art screening tools.

Adult audiology: Diagnosis and treatment for adults 18 and older. Hearing should be tested every 10 years until age 50 when tests should occur every three years. We provide the most-advanced equipment and techniques, customized fittings for hearing devices, and help you feel comfortable using them. Additionally, we help with insurance coverage.

Adult amplification: We help you select the best hearing aid for your situation, and adjust or reprogram your hearing aid under warranty at no additional cost, including cleaning and maintenance. For a small fee, we will also program digital hearing aids bought outside our office.

Custom ear molds: We offer ear molds for Bluetooth devices, noise protection, shooting plugs, swim molds, musician earplugs, iPod custom plugs, and anesthesia monitoring plugs
