Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
The various problems people experience with their hearing have many causes. Like every medical issue, a hearing problem is unique to each person and must be diagnosed as such. At Carolyn Palaga Audiology Services, we understand the unique circumstances of your hearing life, and have many proven procedures that will quickly help to solve even complex problems. Hearing tests lay the basic foundation for your audiologist or doctor to build a solution.
Hearing tests are simple and painless, and involve sending sounds and words through earphones and recording your response to those sounds. The audiologist asks a lot of questions about your hearing capabilities and environment.
Here is a list of many of the services we offer:
Also known as cerumen, earwax is a nuisance and can be difficult to remove. We offer a removal service that is safe and will help you combat any ear pain, temporary hearing loss or tinnitus you may be experiencing from the impaction.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Hearing protection is the most proactive approach to better hearing. While most hearing problems can be treated, lost hearing is not restored organically. For this reason, we offer ear protection made specifically for your ears. Custom earmolds and earplugs will help block out damaging sounds and keep your hearing in optimal shape.

Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
After a hearing test, the next step is to evaluate a patient’s need for hearing devices. A hearing test sets the baseline for this process: which devices are right for you and why. The hearing aid today is a marvel of microtechnology customizable styles, features and options.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Every hearing aid is a technologically advanced instrument that needs maintenance. It may also need repairs, which range from a loose connection or battery, to more extensive repairs provided by the manufacturer.
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.
