Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
During our daily lives, we can overlook some health problems that seem small, like a cough or an ache that nags at us. The onset of a hearing problem is a health issue that should not be neglected. Many hearing issues start slowly and gradually become worse, which is why it’s crucial to have your hearing tested once you realize there may be an issue.
If you have not had a hearing test, you have come to the right place. Hearing tests are easy, painless and take only a few minutes. Find out more about hearing tests on our Hearing Tests page. This is the place to begin if you think your hearing is not as strong as it should be.

The perfect companion to a hearing aid is the earmold, made specifically for your ear and designed to fit the hearing aid perfectly. Earplugs for hearing protection are vital to people in many professions like warehousing, construction and music.
Evaluation for Auditory Processing Disorders (APD)
Hearing professionals can diagnose causes of hearing loss, and sometimes the loss is not in the ear structures but in the nerve to the brain, or the brain itself, or other causes. Hearing and Balance Centers specializes in accurately determining the cause and location of your hearing loss.
Evaluation and Fitting for Musician's Ear Plugs
Possibly the force most destructive to hearing is very loud music. People working in this industry or simply attending events should have hearing protection. We offer earmolds and monitors for this purpose.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
The basic instrument used to help most people hear better is the hearing aid. The electronics, performance, features and miniaturization of hearing aids today are astounding. Find out more about the wide range of hearing aid choices on our Hearing Products page.
Hearing Aid Repairs
The delicate instrumentation found in hearing aids needs maintenance and occasionally repairs. Your hearing aid can often be repaired on-site, making it less time for you to be without your device.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.
In Office Services
We encourage ongoing cleaning and maintenance after your hearing aid purchase to ensure you receive optimum performance and benefit from your hearing aid(s). We encourage all our patients to come in for regular hearing aid check-ups and cleaning.
Repairs, Maintenance, Cleanings, and Warranties come with all brands of hearing aids. We offer in-office repairs when possible on most makes/models.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Evaluating and treating noise in the ears, known as tinnitus, is a growing specialty in hearing health communities. Noise can be frustrating and disrupt daily life. There are several treatment options, but an evaluation of your symptoms will start you on the road to overcoming tinnitus.
Usually part of a hearing test, tympanometry is a test of the resilience or elasticity of the eardrum. The test is done by changing the air pressure inside and out of the middle ear.
Trained professionals perform all services and most are completed in our offices. Contact a professional at Hearing and Balance Centers of West Tennessee to find out what we can do for your hearing health.
