Audiology and Hearing Aid Services

Doctors of Audiology at Hearing & Balance Doctors offer high-quality hearing services. Whether you need an in-depth hearing test or help with managing your tinnitus symptoms, you can find the services you need at one of our hearing clinics.

Hearing Evaluations

Hearing Evaluations

The first step in taking control of your hearing loss is by having a diagnostic hearing evaluation. Unlike a hearing screening, which is just a basic test to check if you might have hearing loss, a hearing evaluation has multiple tests. That way, our audiologists can pinpoint not only your level of hearing loss but what has caused your hearing loss, as that will affect your treatment plan. Some of the basic components of a hearing evaluation are:

  • Tympanometry
  • Pure tone testing
  • Speech understanding and detection
  • Bone conduction

Our hearing specialist can also provide pediatric hearing evaluations if you suspect your child has hearing loss. Catching hearing loss early is especially important in young children, as their development can become stunted without audio cues.

Also, At Hearing & Balance Doctors of Utah, we can contract with companies to perform hearing screenings and comprehensive hearing evaluations for company employees. We are happy to help create hearing conservation programs in order to prevent noise-induced hearing loss.

Hearing Aid Services

A key way to treat sensorineural hearing loss is with the use of hearing aids. However, hearing aids are not a one-size-fits-all kind of product. To ensure you have the right hearing aids for your needs, our doctors of audiology offer various hearing aid-related services.

  • Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting – Our doctors of audiology have hundreds of hearing aids you can choose from so that you can find the right hearing aids for your lifestyle and hearing needs. After your hearing aids arrive, our audiologists will also fit and program them to suit your needs.
  • Live Speech Mapping – A feature of the hearing aid fitting process at our hearing clinic is the use of live speech mapping. This process helps you hear how hearing aids can help you and what adjustments need to be made to the devices to help fine-tune them to your needs.
  • Hearing Aid Repairs – Hearing aids can become damaged over time and be in need of repair. You can bring your hearing aids into our hearing office, and we can perform a number of repairs, from replacing the receiver to fixing the battery door.
  • Real Ear Measurement – To help ensure a more comfortable hearing aid fit, our hearing specialist use real ear measurements to adjust the hearing aid. This process is especially important in hearing aids which require a custom fit.
  • Hearing Aid Batteries – There are different sized batteries for hearing aids, depending on what style of hearing aid you choose. We carry all sizes of batteries and can help you stock up on the right ones.

Tinnitus Treatment

Tinnitus Treatment

Tinnitus affects millions of Americans, yet the advice for many of them is to simply learn to live with it. However, at Hearing & Balance Doctors, we offer effective tinnitus management to help you overcome your struggles with tinnitus. Some of the key services we provide are:

  • Tinnitus management plan – For those who struggle with progressive tinnitus which becomes worse over time, our audiologists can develop a tinnitus management plan tailored to your specific needs.
  • Hearing aids with tinnitus support – Many hearing aid brands have developed hearing aids which also act as sound generators. These hearing aids help you mask the tinnitus and allow you to control what soothing background sound is being played. Over time, it can also help you acclimate to your tinnitus.
  • Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) – This form of therapy is done by one of our doctors of audiology to help habituate you to the sound of your tinnitus. By doing this, your tinnitus should have less of an impact on your life.

Balance Evaluations

Your balance can be connected to hearing issues. If you have been struggling with your balance on a consistent basis, you may need a balance evaluation by one of our specialist.

During your balance evaluation, our audiologists will go over your symptoms, family medical history, current medication regime, and other things which can affect your balance. Depending on your answers and their evaluation process, our doctors of audiology will recommend different treatment courses.
