To hear clearly is a gift. Astera Health offers audiology services to support the hearing health of patients throughout our service area. Audiology is the science of hearing, balance and other related conditions

Our Audiology Services

We strive to protect and restore your hearing. Through a relationship with Sarah Nelson, Au.D., a registered audiologist, Astera provides the diagnosis and non-medical treatment of a variety of hearing and balance disorders. Audiology services include:

Enjoy the sounds and activities you love the most with custom-made protective ear molds and earplugs. If you work in a frequently loud environment, protecting your hearing is vital. We make precisely fitting molds and earplugs for swimmers, musicians, construction workers, and more.
Your balance is important and affects how you drive, walk, and move. Whether you’re suffering from dizziness from Ménière’s disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or some other issue, the audiologist will pinpoint the cause and offer treatment that gets to the root of the problem.
Ear wax is important to protect your ear from damage and infections, but if you’re suffering from wax impaction or overproduction, we’ll carefully remove wax with specialized tools. We’ll protect your eardrums and ensure wax is not hindering your ability to hear.
Regular appointments are vital to preserving and maintaining your hearing. The audiologist prioritizes your well-being and fosters a long-lasting relationship to help you achieve results. The audiologist will regularly check in with you, continue any needed treatment and help you manage your hearing for long-term success.

If you need a hearing aid to treat hearing loss in one or both ears, Astera offers options for the best hearing devices. In order to help you get the most out of your hearing aids, we offer:

  • Hearing aid adjustment: To further ensure your comfort and the functionality of your device, we’ll perform any needed adjustments. If you’re experiencing any feedback or fit adjustment, we can take care of that for you as well.
  • Hearing aid maintenance and cleaning: Regular cleaning, fine-tuning and adjustments ensure your hearing aids are in tip-top shape. We’ll also provide ongoing care to ensure your hearing is as clear as possible.
  • Precise hearing aid fitting: The audiologist will precisely place your hearing aids into your ear and test them in our clinic to ensure a precise, comfortable fit. We’ll show you how to put in your hearing aids and perform basic maintenance like cleaning.

The audiologist will perform sensitive, accurate hearing tests to gauge how well you can hear. Screening your hearing is not painful and may involve the following tests:

  • Acoustically evoked otoacoustic emission: Examines the functionality of the outer hair cells in your inner ear
  • Audiometric: Testing if you can hear low-frequency and high-frequency sounds and speech
  • Tympanometry: Checks your middle ear, eardrum, and conduction bones with variations of air pressure

We’ll discern whether or not you are experiencing hearing loss. Depending on your results, we’ll determine the best treatment options to resolve, enhance and protect your hearing.

Our clinic provides treatment for a variety of conditions, with ongoing audiology support for:

  • Cholesteatoma
  • Conductive or sensorineural hearing loss
  • Earaches
  • Otosclerosis
  • Swimmer’s ear
  • And more

If you hear a ringing in your ears that’s not caused by any external noise, you might have tinnitus. Depending on the severity of your tinnitus, treatments for this common condition include:

  • Arthritis joint treatment
  • Ear wax removal
  • Middle ear fluid treatment
  • Specialized hearing aids

Whatever may be causing your tinnitus, we provide effective solutions.
