A thorough hearing evaluation is completed to determine the type and degree of hearing loss present. If it is determined there is a medical issue that needs addressing, a referral will be given to the appropriate medical professional.
Otoacoustic Emissions Test
A painless low-level sound emission helps evaluate the health of the inner ear. This quick test is one of the methods used in hospitals to screen newborns hearing health and it is also used to confirm hearing loss and certain specific disorders in adults.
Acoustic Immittance Test
Depending on your other test findings, your Audiology Consultant professional staff member may perform this painless test which helps evaluate the health of the ear drum and space behind the ear drum.
Hearing Aid Selection and Fitting
Our staff will help you choose the right style and technology of hearing aid to move you on the path to a better quality of life through improved hearing. Hearing aids come with a trial and adjustment period to guarantee you are satisfied. Follow up appointments allow us to monitor your progress and keep your hearing aid at peak performance.

Often called “ringing in the ears,” this auditory condition affects more than 50 million Americans. While some just experience mild discomfort, for others it can be severe and disabling. It can interfere with sleep, work and social interactions. There are treatment options that can help you manage the negative effects of tinnitus and reduce the impact it has on your life. Treatment starts with a hearing test focusing exclusively on your tinnitus. We do a complete history to learn how it is affecting you and then develop an individualized treatment and management plan.
Hearing Conservation – Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations concerning Occupational Noise Exposure require hearing conservation programs for employees exposed to elevated levels of noise. Noise is one of the few preventable sources of hearing loss, yet it is one of the leading occupational injuries. Worker’s compensation claims for hearing loss can be prevented using proper hearing conservation programs. The professionals at Audiology Consultants can help your company develop a Hearing Conservation Program. Because we are a local company, we can work with you at your convenience and our staff will familiarize themselves with your workplace and requirements. We offer the following services:
