Adult Services

adult audiology

Approximately 20% of Americans experience hearing loss, and recent estimates show that rates of hearing loss will almost double in the future. Hearing loss makes people feel isolated from family members and their community as they struggle to communicate. Our team of audiologists can help you to regain your hearing confidence by doing a thorough hearing evaluation, and if needed, recommending and fitting the right hearing aid for you. We proudly fit quality hearing aids and use Real Ear technology to personalize the aids for your specific hearing loss, taking into consideration your daily life and communication needs. We currently fit and service GN Resound, Phonak, Oticon, Signia, Starkey, and Widex hearing aids and accessories.

Our hearing aid pricing comes with two options to best fit your needs. We offer a bundled or an unbundled package. A bundled package is a one-time charge that includes the hearing aids, fitting fee, and hearing aid follow-up services for the life of the hearing aid (does not include hearing tests). The unbundled package includes only the charge for the hearing aid; then you pay for the fitting fee and all follow-up services as they happen. Every hearing aid fitting includes a 30-day trial period (please call for details).

Pediatric Services

pediatric audiology

Hearing loss is the most common birth condition in the United States. Approximately 2-3 out of every 1000 children have hearing loss when they are born, and this more than doubles by the time children enter school. Most children are born to parents who have normal hearing. Children whose hearing loss is identified at an early age and who quickly get hearing aids and specialized training have a high probability of learning to talk and attend mainstream schools.

Our pediatric audiologists use specialized tests to identify children as early as possible, including tests for babies. We fit state-of-the-art hearing aids that are designed for children and use Real Ear technology to make sure that the hearing aids are fit appropriately for your child. We team with Sound Beginnings, an onsite intervention program that teaches children to use spoken language.  

Our clinic accepts most insurance plans, but you can call 435-797-1346 to confirm for your specific insurance.

Cochlear Implant Services

coclear implants

A cochlear implant is a medical device that is placed in the cochlea. It is designed for people who do not get enough benefit from their hearing aids. Cochlear implants are used in children and adults. Our cochlear implant clinic will test you or your child to see if a cochlear implant is the right option for you. We provide follow-up mapping services for people of all ages and use evidence-based methods to fit the cochlear implant, including eSRT. Our audiologists are experienced with all three manufacturers of cochlear implants, including Advanced Bionics, Cochlear, and MedEl
