Hearing Care Services
When was your last hearing check? Hearing acuity can decline gradually, causing hearing challenges in a variety of situations. As hearing declines, it is not uncommon to misunderstand what others are saying, asking them to repeat or turn up the television. The clarity or volume of speech may begin to lack, making it harder to understand in restaurants, groups, or meetings. We offer thorough hearing assessments to our clients throughout Houston and the surrounding area.
We will determine the type and degree of hearing loss you have and recommend solutions to address your specific challenges.
Our Houston-based audiology practice offers a full range of diagnostic hearing assessments depending on your reported concerns and health history. Our audiologists administer:
- Video otoscopy
- Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs)
- Middle ear evaluations
- Audiometric testing
- Speech Understanding / Processing testing in quiet and noise
The first step to diagnosing any degree of hearing loss is a diagnostic hearing evaluation. We use the most advanced technology available and our audiologist will take the time to explain all findings.

Our tinnitus treatment is both personal and customized for each patient. Upon the completion of a thorough evaluation, we develop a treatment plan that centers around Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT). In the majority of tinnitus cases, there is an underlying hearing loss issue. Addressing this hearing loss helps to minimize the effects of tinnitus giving our patients relief.
In some cases, tinnitus may occur suddenly. For patients who have had a recent head injury, a complete medical evaluation with proper imaging and treatment will be recommended as part of your tinnitus treatment plan. When dealing with a significant emotional event, such as loss of a loved one for example, tinnitus may occur. In this case, a combination of TRT and behavioral therapy may be recommended.
As you can see, tinnitus is a personal phenomenon and not one case is identical. Treatment plans will vary depending on your situation to assist in getting you the relief you need.
