Services

Most people visit an audiologist because they have been referred by another doctor or specialist. But seeing an audiologist isn't like seeing a regular doctor. Audiologists are trained professionals who specialize in evaluating, diagnosing, treating, and managing issues related to hearing, tinnitus, and balance disorders.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT

First, it's completely normal to feel unsure of what to expect during your first audiology appointment. We'll test your hearing and evaluate if you have a hearing loss, and if so, how severe the loss is. We then will put hearing devices in your ears so you can hear what it's like to have sounds amplified. We recommend a loved one join you since we'll use their voice to test the difference these devices make.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

Companies are required by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to implement safeguards to protect the safety of their workers – including their hearing. In some situations, however, an employee may still suffer hearing impairment related to their work environment. If you are affected by occupational hearing loss, you will most likely file a claim for workers’ compensation. When you file a claim, you will need to undergo a hearing evaluation from an approved audiologist. We have experience providing workers’ compensation hearing evaluations for companies and their claimants since 1978 throughout the Bay Area.
