A doctor-recommended approach
Ask your physician how he or she would want to be treated for a hearing loss. The program of care your doctor describes will mirror the path you’ll take at Audiology Associates: accurate assessment using specialized technology and expertise, followed by quality amplification and therapeutic education.
A 21st century path to better hearing
Your Audiology Associates experience will begin with a thorough evaluation of your hearing. We don’t rely on broad testing methods. Our expert audiology team obtains detailed measurement, accomplished using the latest in diagnostic testing equipment. Your assessment may include:
- Pure tone air and bone conduction testing
- Speech threshold and discrimination testing
- Immitance (impedance) testing, including tympanometry, acoustic reflexes, and reflex decay

- Speech and noise test
- Uncomfortable loudness measure
- Articulation indexing

The information we gather during your evaluation enables Audiology Associates to tailor your care precisely to your individual needs.

- Digital hearing technology
