Treatments and Services

The Emory Audiology Program provides on-site audiology services and a staff trained to assess hearing disorders and determine appropriate treatment options for hearing loss. Ear, nose, and throat physicians are available to provide care for patients with hearing loss that can be corrected through medical intervention. When amplification is the appropriate treatment, we provide state-of-the-art hearing aids.

All audiological services are provided by a certified, licensed audiologist and include:

  • Hearing evaluations for both adults and children
  • Impedance testing (tympanometry)
  • Hearing aid evaluation and fitting, including computer-programmable hearing aids with digital technology
  • A 30-day trial period for all hearing aids
  • Hearing aid repairs, service, batteries and accessories
  • Custom ear molds for swimming and noise protection and musicians' earplugs
  • Cochlear implants and Bone-Anchored Hearing prosthetics (BAHA)

Hearing Aids, Plugs, and Implants 

The Emory Audiology Program offers the full spectrum of advanced hearing technology including digital, programmable and implantable hearing aids in addition to cochlear implants. We also offer a vast array of custom-fit specialty devices such as musician's and swimmer's plugs designed specifically for your needs. Learn more about hearing aids by using the link below. 

Cochlear Implants

For severe hearing loss, a standard hearing aid may not be enough. Don’t give up. A cochlear implant may be the answer.

Audiogram Hearing Test

An audiogram is a graph that shows the results of a hearing test. The sound intensity in decibels (dB HL) is plotted on the audiogram from top to bottom with the quiet sounds near the top and loud sounds at the bottom. The pitch, or frequency, in hertz (Hz), is plotted with the low-pitch sounds to the left and the high-pitch sounds to the right. Results of an audiogram show the softest sounds a person can hear, and if there is hearing loss, what kind it is and the severity. This will help the audiologist decide what solution is best for the hearing loss.

Look at the audiogram below to get an idea of the placement (by pitch and intensity) of familiar sounds such as a dog barking or a telephone ringing or different sounds of speech.

Speech discrimination, or word recognition, is scored as a percentage of words that can be repeated correctly at a comfortable intensity level in quiet with no background noise.
