Our services and hearing aid options

  • Hearing evaluations: We test for sensitivity to tones, speech understanding and middle ear function. (Evaluations for children may involve behavior assessment in addition to standard tests.)
  • Hearing aids: We offer a range of options, including all “in the ear” and “behind the ear” models, as well as digital and programmable devices. We warranty and service all hearing aids we sell, and also service those not purchase here.
  • Custom earplugs are available for swimmers and those who work or live with a high level of noise.
  • Unexplained dizziness: We can help identify the cause with VNG (videonystagmography) testing, a series of tests that can determine whether dizziness or a balance disorder may be due to inner ear disease.

Insurance coverage

Most health insurance plans include some degree of coverage for hearing assessments. Some also include coverage for hearing aids as well. You should review your plan carefully to determine what it covers. If you’re not sure, talk to the audiology staff before your visit. In addition, new legislation means added insurance coverage for hearing aids.
