Your hearing is a delicate, important sense which should not be ignored. If you or a loved one has been noticing an issue with hearing, balance or dizziness, our licensed audiologists can help determine the cause.
Our goal is to provide the best possible experience for your hearing healthcare. We offer comprehensive services including diagnostic testing, rehabilitation and hearing loss prevention.
Our audiologists see infants, toddlers, teens and adults of all ages. Testing ranges from newborn hearing screenings through complete diagnostic evaluations. Hearing loss is a prevalent chronic condition among individuals of all ages. It is recognized that a decrease in hearing is a normal part of aging, especially at higher frequencies (pitches).
Hearing protection, Swim plugs, Musician earplugs
Loud noise can be very damaging to your hearing and can put you at risk for noise-induced hearing loss. Your hearing can be injured not only by a loud blast or explosion, but also by prolonged exposure to loud noises.
How can I protect my ears?
Wear hearing protection, such as earmuffs or earplugs.
Do not listen to loud sounds for too long.
Lower the level of sound.
Divine Savior Healthcare can fit you with custom hearing protection, swim molds or musician plugs.
Think you may need an appointment to discuss your hearing? A simple questionnaire can guide you while making the decision. We offer this Quick Test that you can take online, or, print one for a loved one who can then take it to their treating physician.
Dizziness and Balance
Audiologists provide testing for individuals with dizziness or balance difficulties. The inner ear is responsible for both hearing and balance. When there are problems with the inner ear, an individual may have problems with dizziness (vertigo.) Electronystagmography (ENG) is a series of three tests designed to evaluate part of the inner ear balance system, as well as more central (brain) components that work together to keep you ‘in balance.’
Dizziness and balance diagnostics are completed by an audiologist following a referral from your physician. Our audiologists often work closely with our physical therapists to appropriately treat patients who are seen for concerns regarding dizziness or balance.
We encourage you to make an appointment with audiology if you or family members are experiencing any of the following conditions:
You have been previously diagnosed with a hearing disorder but are receiving treatment further away.
You are in need of a new hearing device.
Your current device fits improperly or is working poorly.
You or someone close to you has concerns about changes in hearing.
You have issues with balance, dizziness or vertigo.
You are having ringing in the ears (tinnitus
