Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
The professionals at Adirondack Audiology understand how vital hearing health is to your everyday living.

Whether you’re looking for cerumen removal or simply need an accessory for your hearing aids, we’ve got the right tools to help you along the way.
Ear Wax impactions can cause a number of complications, like temporary hearing loss, pain, balance problems and infection. We offer cerumen removal at our office and can provide instructions to help keep your ears free from impactions in the future.
During your examination you will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
If you need hearing aids, our professionals will be happy to walk you through the process of selecting the right devices for your needs. Once you’ve chosen your hearing aids, we will perform a fitting to customize your devices to your specific hearing loss needs.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Hearing aids are highly advanced pieces of technology, which means they’re prone to breakdowns and issues like any electronic device. Our office can perform simple and minor hearing aid repairs on site. In the event your hearing aid needs further servicing, we can send it to the manufacturer and work as a liaison to make sure you get your devices back as soon as possible.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
There are a number of factors to consider when selecting the right hearing aids for your needs, such as your degree of hearing loss, budget and lifestyle needs. Our professionals will work with you to make sure you get the hearing aid that suits your preferences.
Hearing loss is often associated with older individuals, but infants and children can also be impacted by it. We offer testing, diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss for pediatric patients.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus is defined as a ringing, buzzing or whooshing sound in your ear that only you can hear. It can impact one or both ears and can be incredibly detrimental to your quality of life. Our office offers treatment and relief options like hearing aids with masking features and retraining therapy.
VNG - Balance Evaluations
Videonystagmography tests the ability of the vestibular part of your inner ear. This is responsible for keeping you balanced and can cause dizziness, vertigo and unsteadiness if not functioning properly.
