With the progression of technology, hearing aids have drastically changed from the large clunky devices that they once were.
Today, they’re mostly invisible and boast incredible technology.
If we discover that you require hearing aids in order to benefit your hearing, then we’ll work with you to find the right fit, the right style, and the right budget to suit your lifestyle.
With a range of options available to you, you’ll sit down with our audiologist to choose the right option for you in a pressure-free, friendly environment.
Ringing sounds are a very common complaint and in most cases it is indicative of a hearing loss as a result of noise exposure or the normal ageing process.
Although there is no actual cure for tinnitus, there are numerous ways that it can be successfully managed.
Balance and vestibular testing
Hearing and balance are interrelated, as both are controlled within the inner ear. If you are experiencing balance difficulties, vertigo, and/or disequilibrium, our audiologists will work closely with our ENT doctors to pinpoint the cause and best treatment options.
We provide hallmark diagnostic testing for dizzy and gait challenged patients, such as electrocochelography (ECochG), auditory brainstem response (ABR), videonystagmography (VNG), computerized dynamic posturography (CDP), and computerized rotational chair testing.
COMPUTERIZED ROTARY CHAIR
During testing, you will sit in a motorized chair that swivels side-to-side at a controlled rate. From this test, we’re able to test three things. The chair test measures your dizziness, the optokinetic test measures dizziness caused by the viewing of moving stripes, and the fixation test measures nystagmus while you’re being rotated.
We are one of just four clinics in the entire state of Arizona that offers this advanced form of testing.
Computerized Dynamic Posturography
During CDP testing, you will stand on a force-sensing support surface, within a moveable visual surround. These tests will determine how well you can maintain your balance under different conditions, designed to determine the source of your balance problems.
