Audiology Services

Audiology services are provided by Dr. Wendy Page, audiologist. Dr. Page has been providing services at The Rehab Center for over 25 years. The department's services include comprehensive hearing evaluations for infants, children, and adults. Hearing aid services include evaluation, selection, fitting, and repairs. State of the art digital hearing aids can be purchased through The Rehab Center.

Hearing Testing | Patients will complete a hearing test to establish hearing thresholds, determining the degree and type of hearing loss. Middle ear and cochlear function testing is included in the hearing test battery as needed. Infants will be tested using otoacoustic emissions screening when referred because they did not pass the newborn hearing screening in the hospital; some behavioral hearing testing may also be completed with these infants as appropriate. All patients and family members present are informed of their results immediately following the testing. Recommendations are made based on the test results and may include further testing, referral back to the prescribing physician or to an otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctor), purchase of hearing aids, purchase of assisted listening devices, or hearing recheck. Great care is taken to ensure that all patients are comfortable and well-informed of their hearing needs, hearing limitations, and recommendations at their visit. Hearing aid make, model, and type are discussed with the patients interested in purchasing hearing aids; the hearing aids are selected based on the patient’s hearing loss and individual listening needs.

Assistive Listening Devices | Assistive Listening Devices are devices used in place of or along with an individual's hearing aids to enhance the hearing abilities of the patient; these devices are selected based on the patient’s abilities and listening needs. Bluetooth technology has advanced hearing aid technology to offer new and innovative devices to couple with the hearing aids to pair with smart phones, computers, televisions and miniature microphones. The sounds from these devices are then heard through the hearing aids. Other devices may include amplified telephones or telephone ringers, CapTel telephones, and smoke detectors.
