Hearing Tests – A comprehensive hearing test checks your hearing and comprehension across a wide range of frequencies including both tones and real speech. The results of your hearing test are presented as an audiogram which will reveal the type, degree and patterns of your hearing loss.
Hearing Aid Fittings – Most people with hearing loss can be helped with hearing aids, but selecting the best hearing aid can be difficult. And, even the best hearing aid will take some getting used to and adaptation on your part. We will tell you exactly what to expect from the process of choosing your first hearing aid and do all the necessary tuning and fitting so that you get the best performance from your investment. Learn more about selecting a hearing aid.
Hearing Loss – Our specialists can evaluate your hearing loss to determine if the cause is primarily sensorineural, conductive, a combination of the two or has some other underlying reason.

Dizziness – Not all audiologists treat dizziness and balance disorders, but we do. Proper treatment and balance rehabilitation starts with correctly diagnosing the cause. Learn more about our approach to balance and dizziness.
Vertigo – Treatment for vertigo, migraine associated vertigo or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (bppv) depends on the underlying cause. We’ve helped numerous patients (mostly women) improve, manage or eliminate their vertigo symptoms.
Excess Ear Wax – Excessive ear wax does affect your hearing. Luckily this type of hearing loss is reversible with ear wax removal. To get the best result and remove ear wax safely, work with a professional instead of trying it at home.
Earaches & Ear Infections – Ear pain has multiple causes. Ear infections can strike the middle ear (otitis media) or outer ear (otits externa or swimmer’s ear) and may result in pain, inflammation or hearing impairment. Ear infections can spread to other parts of the body and permanently damage the delicate structures of the ear if left untreated.

Adults – We see numerous adults that have noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) especially musicians, law enforcement, military personnel or those that work around noisy machinery. In addition to helping you, we can often work with your employer to monitor noise levels and provide adequate protective equipment. Learn more about noise-induced hearing loss or hearing protection.

Kids may experience hearing difficulties as infants or toddlers, or it may appear later the school-age or teenage years.
