The various concerns individuals experience with their hearing can have many causes. As with medical issues, a hearing problem is unique to each person and must be diagnosed as such. At Carolyn Palaga Audiology Services, we understand that everyone's hearing health is unique, and we have many proven procedures which assist us to solve complex problems.

Hearing tests involve sending sounds and words through earphones and recording your response to those sounds.
Here is a list of many of the services we offer:
Earwax, whic is also called cerumen, is a protective substance secreted by your ear. It has the potential to cause problems if it builds up over time, becoming impacted, and making it difficult to remove. We offer cerumen removal that is safe and will help you combat any ear pain, temporary hearing loss or tinnitus you may be experiencing from the impacted cerumen.

Musician's Earplugs and Monitors
Two of the most dangerous environments for people’s hearing are loud work areas and concerts. For musicians (and stage workers or sound technicians), rehearsals and concerts pose a constant threat to hearing. We offer comprehensive hearing protection designed specifically for musicians. Monitors allow levels of sound and certain frequencies to be heard while excluding dangerous noise levels.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
What most people refer to as “ringing in the ears” is a condition called tinnitus. Changes in the middle or inner ear, injury or nerve degeneration are some of the causes. Tinnitus is usually a change in the structure or function of the tiny hairs in the ear that transmit sound waves to the brain. The brain interprets these signals as a rushing or whirring sound even though no external sound is present.
