Hearing Care Services
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. A hearing test lays the foundation for us to build a solution to your concerns.
Here is a list of many of the services we offer:
Earwax, which 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.
Hearing protection is the most proactive approach to better hearing. While most hearing concerns are temporary, noise induced hearing loss is permanent. To help preserve and protect your hearing, we offer custom hearing protection made specifically for your ears. Custom earmolds and earplugs come in various styles and colors.
The hearing test, or Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluation, performed at Carolyn Palaga Audiology Services, is a thorough audiologic evaluation that investigates the health of your auditory system. This is the first step to understanding your hearing concerns. If a hearing loss is found, this evaluation allows the audiologist to determine the type and degree of your hearing loss.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
After a hearing test, the next step is to evaluate a patient’s need for hearing devices. The type and degree of hearing loss, size and shape of the individual’s ear, and the individual’s preference, are all taken into consideration when making the decision. We need to decide which device is right for you.
Hearing Aid Maintenance and Repairs
At Sahali Professional Hearing Services, we understand how important your devices are to your everyday life. That’s why we offer professional cleanings, maintenance, and repairs when necessary. You rely on your hearing aids to communicate daily, so we’ll work to keep your devices in optimal shape.
Hearing Protection for Musicians
Music has the potential to be dangerously loud for our auditory system. 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.
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.
