I have had a life changing event thanks to Rita and her team. The personal attention I received was like “getting hearing solutions from a family member”.

Rita is the best in the business. I’ve gotten hearing aids other places in the past and I would never think of going elsewhere after getting my new set through Rita McWilliams.

Audiology Associates was a very pleasant place to visit. Not only were the people nice, but the music was lovely, and there was even a jigsaw puzzle in the waiting room to do.

HEARING EVALUATIONS

Hearing evaluations are usually the first step in diagnosing hearing loss. A comprehensive hearing evaluation is actually a series of tests that collectively measure hearing sensitivity. Results help us fine-tune treatment options for each unique patient.

 

AURAL REHABILITATION

Our customized aural rehabilitation program is implemented in every patient's journey to better hearing.  Hearing aids are only one piece to improving your hearing and communication ability. With our holistic approach, you will be sure to walk away with much more than a pair of hearing aids. 

 

TINNITUS MANAGEMENT

While there is no cure for tinnitus, it can be successfully managed by the highly trained audiologists at Audiology Associates.  It begins with a tinnitus evaluation using our state-of-the-art instruments to pitch and loudness match your unique tinnitus.  Then, using a holistic and fine-tuned treatment plan, your tinnitus can successfully be managed. 

 

MUSICIANS IN-EAR MONITORS

Musicians have much higher rates of hearing loss and tinnitus than the rest of the population due to their ongoing exposure to the sounds of electric instruments and drums through speakers.  Musician monitors combine the effects of ear plugs and headphones, delivering a musician's feedback at a safe volume through custom earmolds while blocking out other loud, damaging noise.

 

Bone Anchored Hearing Systems (BAHS)

If you have a conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss, or single-sided deafness, then a bone conduction hearing system may work for you.  While a hearing aid tries to push sound through the damaged part of the ear, the BAHS uses your natural ability to conduct sound through bone vibration.  By bypassing the damaged outer or middle ear, a clearer, more crisp sound is sent directly to your inner ear. 

HEARING AID FITTINGS

We firmly believe there is a specific and unique treatment plan for each individual patient.  This is why we make sure to offer all hearing aid manufacturers and use our experience and expertise in choosing the right one for you and your communication needs. 

 

COCHLEAR IMPLANTS

Cochlear implants treat severe to profound hearing loss in patients who can't be treated with hearing aids.  We must first perform a cochlear implant evaluation to make sure you are a CI candidate. Then a trained surgeon implants the device, and we can soon begin cochlear implant programming (or mapping).

 

EARWAX MANAGEMENT

Earwax (or cerumen) has an important job of cleaning the skin in the ear canal and protecting it from debris, bacteria, and water.  But it can cause hearing loss and be problematic for hearing aid use.  As audiologists, we have experience and are highly trained in the safe and painless removal of cerumen.  

 

HEARING PROTECTION

Custom earmolds are earplugs made from silicone designed specifically to fit your ears. Custom earplugs can be made with filters designed for your specific use.  Musician's filters for avid concert goes allow you to hear everything clearly, while protecting your ears from sounds that are damaging.  Shooter's earplugs have a valve that automatically closes in response to a gun shot.  

 

SWIM/SLEEP PLUGS

Swimmer's earplugs are personally crafted waterproof floatable plugs to protects you from infections such as swimmer's ear (otitis externa) or surfer's ear (exostosis).  Sleeping earplugs are the perfect option for light sleepers who need a little protection from noisy traffic, noisy neighbors, or noisy partners.
