La Grande’s Local Hearing Care & Audiology Experts
Caring for the Hearing Health of the La Grande Community Since 1982
When Was The Last Time That You Had Your Hearing Tested?
As audiologists, we know that prevention of hearing loss is our first line of defense. We accomplish this through education and training on hearing protection. We also know that noise induced hearing loss is the leading cause of permanent hearing loss in this country and that often it comes on so slowly that most people don’t realize how much hearing loss they have until their family and friends start pointing it out.
At Audiology & Hearing Aid Associates, we have been caring for hundreds of patients and generations of families by raising local awareness for healthy hearing and encouraging our community to regularly test their hearing.
If you believe that you are experiencing signs of hearing loss, or if one of your loved ones is showing signs of struggling to engage like they used to, then we can help. But your first step is to schedule a comprehensive hearing assessment.
Why Patients Choose Us
Comprehensive Hearing Assessments
Like the proverbial frog in the slowly boiling pot of water, hearing loss often comes on slowly over months and years. Comprehensive hearing examinations are diagnostic audiometric examinations of your ears and hearing. These tests can tell us if your hearing loss is temporary or permanent. We can also determine if there are other underlying medical conditions that are causing your hearing loss. Not all hearing losses require hearing aids. That’s why we encourage regular hearing assessments to ensure that any hearing loss is caught and treated properly.
Hearing Aids and Implantable Technology
Hearing aids are not the only solution available to manage hearing loss. There are a number of treatable medical conditions that can cause hearing loss. If your hearing loss does require technology to help manage it, then there are many really amazing options available from easy to use amplifiers to advanced hearing aids, bone anchored hearing aids, and cochlear implants. The latest hearing technologies are small, powerful, and discreet, allowing patients to experience a level of hearing that they didn’t know was possible while wearing hearing aids that often go unnoticed by the people around them.
Advanced Tinnitus Specialists
Tinnitus is experienced by millions of Americans. In fact, it is one of the number one reasons for medical office visits in the country and the number one service connected disability by the Veterans Administration. Diagnosing and managing tinnitus is complex. There is not a magic pill or immunization available. For every person that has tinnitus, there is a customizable solution to bring relief. In Oregon, the licensed audiologist is recognized as the professional to diagnose and manage tinnitus. We know tinnitus requires a personalized plan and we are dedicated to creating the right plan with you.
