Audiology Services

Audiology is the branch of science that deals with hearing, balance, and related disorders. The audiologists at the Shea Ear Clinic are highly trained specialists and hold a doctorate degree in audiology (Au.D.). State of the art equipment, techniques, and strategies to are used to comprehensively evaluate hearing and balance function in patients ranging from infants to senior citizens. These include audiometry (hearing sensitivity and word understanding), tympanometry (middle ear compliance and reflexes), electrocochleography (inner ear pressure), electronystagmography (balance function), auditory brainstem response (hearing nerve function), otoacoustic emissions (hair cell function), and posturography (central adaptation). The audiologist and physician team work closely to determine whether patients can hear and balance within the normal range, and if not, to determine the nature and degree of their impairment. Using this information, the physicians at the Shea Ear Clinic make recommendations and formulate a treatment plan for the patient’s specific needs.
