HOUSTON HEARING experts

Allison Audiology has been helping patients hear for over 20 years!

At Allison Audiology, our goal is to provide you with the best possible hearing care based upon your individual needs. We provide many services related to the evaluation, rehabilitation and prevention of hearing loss.

These services include comprehensive hearing tests, specialized diagnostic testing, and aural rehabilitation.

If you think you are struggling with hearing loss, choosing a hearing professional is one of the most important decisions you can make. Since a hearing aid cannot be prescribed like eye glasses, a proper hearing aid recommendation and fitting is highly dependent on the expertise of the hearing professional selecting the instrument.

We test your hearing, assess the environments where you experience the most hearing difficulty, and then select and dispense a hearing device that best suits your needs. In addition, we also provide ongoing support, counseling, and service of the hearing system.

Advanced Technology

Allison Audiology is proud to offer the latest in hearing solutions and testing equipment for our patients.  We only work with brands and manufacturers we trust to provide you with the most reliable solutions available.

Traditional Devices:  With our hearing solutions, we can meet the most challenging needs from a better understanding in background noise to Bluetooth and cloud connectivity. For those patients who prefer a device without the latest features, we do offer those too.

Extended Wear Devices:  Allison Audiology was one of the first locations in Texas and the first in Houston to offer the Lyric, an invisible, extended-wear hearing device.  This is the most unique and convenient hearing solution in the hearing healthcare landscape.  This device is unique in that it remains in the ear for 6-8 weeks at a time, providing around-the-clock hearing.  The patient does not have to change batteries or do any type of maintenance to the Lyric.  Additionally, the Lyric is essentially invisible.

For any hearing aid recommendation, we fit solutions designed for your hearing loss, lifestyle, and budget.

We have been in Houston for over 20 years.  Not many private practice offices can say that.  We treat our patients just like family and value that relationship.  When you choose Allison Audiology, you are choosing us as a partner to ensure success in your journey to better hearing.
