Audiology and Hearing Aid Services

Improved technology helps many of our patients adapt to their hearing instruments quickly. Some patients request slight changes to their instrument's sound quality, which can be easily programmed here in our office. At Mountain Audiology, we are committed to your hearing success. After your initial fitting a follow-up appointment is scheduled to make sure you are getting the most from your new hearing aids.

The staff at Mountain Audiology routinely performs electroacoustic analysis and listening checks of your hearing aids. This is the best method to ensure you are fit properly and to check your hearing aid(s) on a regular basis to verify their performance.

Services include:

  • Diagnostic hearing evaluations for adults and children
  • All hearing instruments fitted on a 30-45 day trial period
  • Access to a complete range of hearing aid manufacturers offering the latest technology
  • Accessories for hearing aid maintenance
  • In-house and manufacturer repairs
  • Custom ear molds, noise plugs, swim plugs, musician ear plugs and monitors
  • Adjustments and cleanings throughout the warranty period at no charge

The practice specializes in diagnostic audiology and hearing aid fitting for all ages. Various test techniques are used to be able to assess hearing in infants, children, adults, and older adults as well as special populations.

Mountain Audiology works with a variety of manufacturers so that hearing losses of all types may be accurately fit. The following is a list of manufacturers used: Oticon, Phonak, Widex, Siemens, and Microtech. Services are provided for other manufactures.

Battery Sales

We keep a supply of batteries for you to purchase in our office. Stop in routinely for fresh batteries. Make sure to check the batteries in your hearing devices often and make sure there is no dirt, wax or debris interfering with the batteries performance. Batteries that are properly charged will make a noise (a squeal) when cupped in your hand or after it has been inserted in your ear, when you cup your hand over the hearing aid it will also make a noise.

Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluations

Scheduled and performed by our licensed and nationally certified Hearing Healthcare Professional are subject to professional fees. Insurance often covers these services. Learn More

Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations

During your examination you will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear. Learn More

Ear Impression

Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.

Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection

During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.

Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting

At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you. Learn More

Hearing Aid Repairs

Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly. Learn More

Evaluation and Fitting for Musician's Ear Plugs

Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience. Learn More

OAEs

Otoacoustic emission testing allows the audiologist to understand how the outer hair cells of your inner ear are working.

Tympanometry

Tympanometry is an examination used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the conduction bones, by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal.
