A team of audiologists provides a wide range of clinical services to patients with hearing or ear-related problems. Our aim is to improve the quality of life for each person and family by enhancing the ability to hear, understand, and communicate.

Patients may be seen at the Civic Campus or the General Campus, although not all services are available at both locations. While we primarily provide services to outpatients, we also do see inpatients.

  • Comprehensive audiological evaluations including tests of hearing sensitivity, word recognition, middle ear function, inner ear, hearing nerve function, and balance
