If you think you might have hearing loss and could benefit from hearing aids, schedule an appointment with an audiologist to determine 1) whether or not a loss is present, and if there is, 2) whether or not hearing aids would help.
The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) defines an audiologist as, "a hearing health professional trained to identify and measure hearing loss and who can recommend solutions to rehabilitate hearing impairment and related disorders. Using a variety of tests and procedures to assess hearing and balance function, the audiologist may produce an audiogram (a graph that shows a person's hearing sensitivity) and a tympanogram (a graph that shows how well the middle ear functions to conduct sound)."
The audiologist at The Speech and Hearing Center is Doctor level certified and is state and nationally licensed by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA). He has extensive training and skills to evaluate the hearing of adults, infants, and children of all ages. Our audiological services and products include:

Hearing Aids, Service and Repairs
If our certified Audiologist determines you need hearing aids, you will receive professional guidance to choose hearing aids that are most appropriate for you based on your degree of hearing loss, your lifestyle, your personal cosmetic preferences and your budget.
Hearing aid prices include the cost of the hearing instruments, the hearing aid fitting, a 60-day trial period, and a 3 year warranty on most hearing instruments.
Repair fees are based on the model, size, age, and technology of the hearing aid. Please call (423) 622-6900 for an estimate.
