Audiology & Hearing Assistance Services

Hearing loss is not uncommon, and despite some popular beliefs, hearing loss can occur in young people. More than 31 million Americans have some type of hearing problem. Hearing difficulties can be hard to recognize unless they are evaluated by an audiologist who specializes in diagnosing, treating, and managing hearing loss. By using various assessments, an audiologist can determine an individual's hearing capacity and then fit hearing aids or other hearing devices if necessary.

In addition, audiologists provide balance testing and therapy, aural rehabilitation, central auditory processing disorder testing, and counseling for people of all ages.
