Audiologists at the Mercy Audiology and Hearing Aid Center are certified by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association and are licensed by the Board of Registration for the Healing Arts in Missouri. You can be assured of receiving quality care.
We offer a full range of diagnostic services to help detect hearing impairment and loss in both adults and children. Testing helps determine the type and severity of hearing loss. Several types of testing are offered:
Pure Tone Audiometry determines the threshold at which you can hear by evaluating the softest sounds you can detect.
Word Recognition Testing involves repetition of single-syllable, phonetically balanced words. The scores for each ear provide information that will help determine the need for more testing or referral. It is also used to see if amplification may be helpful for some patients and to evaluate the success of hearing aid fittings.
A variety of models and types of digital hearing aids as well as custom hearing protection and swim plugs are available at Mercy Audiology. Your audiologist will work with you to determine which hearing aid is right for you. Your audiologist can fit and program cochlear implants and osseointegrated devices.
A hearing aid is an electronic device that is worn either in or behind the ear. It increases the volume of sounds that someone with hearing loss has difficulty hearing on their own. Hearing aids help you hear in quiet and in noisy environments. They can also help lessen the feeling of fatigue from straining to hear.
