Audiology Treatment & Services

Pediatric Audiology Services

  • Newborn hearing screening Infants typically receive a hearing screening prior to leaving the hospital. If they do not pass the screening, they will typically receive an outpatient hearing test. It is recommended that they be completed prior to one month of age.
  • Identifying hearing loss in toddlers and children — Hearing evaluations can be done on children of all ages. Testing can include otoacoustic emissions (OAE), visual reinforcement audiometry (VRA), conditioned play audiometry (CPA), and traditional audiometry, to determine the type and severity of hearing loss.
  • Pediatric hearing aid fitting/management of hearing loss in infants and children Our audiologists work to properly and comfortably fit hearing aids for children newly identified with hearing loss. Hearing aids may be fit as early as three to four months of age.

Adult Audiology Services

  • Diagnostic hearing testing to determine the type and severity of hearing loss:
    • Hearing Test (Audiogram) — determines type and severity of hearing loss. This will tell us if a patient is a hearing aid candidate.
    • Tympanogram — evaluates the eardrum to see if it is working properly.
    • Otoacoustic Emissions — measures inner ear functions for limited response patients such as infants and individuals with special needs.
  • Hearing aids, including evaluations, fittings, adjustments, and repair of various types of hearing aids and hearing devices. Learn more about hearing aids by visiting our frequently asked questions >>
