Conditions We Can Help With
Auditory Processing Disorder - Auditory processing has to do with how the brain interprets sound and often the individual with auditory processing difficulty will pass a regular hearing test. When APD is present, the individual will often act as if there is a hearing loss and will often misinterpret what is actually heard. There are specific symptoms of auditory processing disorder that we can screen for to determine if a full evaluation is necessary.
Hearing Loss – Our specialists can evaluate your hearing loss to determine if the cause is primarily sensorineural, conductive, a combination of the two or has some other underlying reason. Treatments for hearing loss depend on correctly identifying the cause. Learn more about how we assess hearing loss.
Tinnitus – Also known as ringing in the ears, there is a lot of current research devoted to finding a cure for tinnitus. Our experts stay current on the latest tinnitus treatment options and would be happy to talk to you about your choices. Learn more about tinnitus treatment.
Dizziness – Not all audiologists treat dizziness and balance disorders, but we do. Proper treatment and balance rehabilitation starts with correctly diagnosing the cause. Learn more about our approach to balance and dizziness.
Vertigo – Treatment for vertigo, migraine associated vertigo or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (bppv) depends on the underlying cause. We’ve helped numerous patients (mostly women) improve, manage or eliminate their vertigo symptoms.

Who We Work With
Children – Our audiologists are specially trained to diagnose hearing loss and auditory processing disorder in children. Kids may experience hearing difficulties as infants or toddlers, or it may appear later in adolescence. Oftentimes a hearing loss is first detected when
a child demonstrates difficulties in school. We are experts at
identifying the causes of hearing difficulty in children, and in
developing a custom therapy plan to improve auditory function..
Adults – We see numerous adults that have noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) especially musicians, law enforcement, military personnel or those that work around noisy machinery. In addition to helping you, we can often work with your employer to monitor noise levels and provide adequate protective equipment. Learn more about noise-induced hearing loss or hearing protection.
Seniors – Age-related hearing loss is perfectly normal and nothing to be embarrassed about. The earlier you intervene, the better so that you don’t miss out on social experiences and your brain doesn’t have to ‘relearn’ how to hear after an extended absence of sound.
Something you are looking for that isn’t on the list? Call (818) 989-9001 and ask. We may have it or be able to get it for you.
