Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
At El Paso Hearing Aid and Audiology Center, our focus is one thing: you and your hearing. With locations in Alamogordo, El Paso and Las Cruces, we’ve been providing Southern New Mexico with high-quality service while maintaining high ethical standards. For 60 years, we’ve been the go-to provider of hearing aids that come in a range of versatile styles and high-performance technology.
We offer services for individuals with every hearing need, whether you need earwax removal or hearing aid repairs.
Cerumen, or earwax, is a naturally occurring substance and actually has beneficial properties. Cerumen lubricates the ears and protects the ear canals from debris and dust. It naturally hardens and leaves the ear canal as we chew and move our jaws. However, sometimes individuals produce too much earwax; when this occurs, the earwax can become impacted and cause temporary hearing loss. A blockage needs to be removed professionally so as to avoid causing damage to the ear.
Hearing Tests and Evaluations
If you are living with undiagnosed hearing loss, or if you have ever wondered if you could benefit from hearing aids, having a hearing test with an audiologist is the first place to begin. During the hearing test process at El Paso Hearing Aid and Audiology Center, you’ll learn about the type and degree of hearing loss you have and how it can be treated.
At El Paso Hearing Aid and Audiology Center, our promise is to be with you the entire step of your hearing aid journey. We offer follow up care and services, including cleaning, repairs and more
Hearing Aid Fitting & Programming
One of the most eventful visits during your hearing aid journey is your fitting and programming appointment. It is during this time that you get to try your hearing aids on for the first time. This appointment can take anywhere from one to two hours because it is important to ensure hearing aids are fitted correctly and fine-turning the devices can take some time. This appointment is also when the audiologist will show you how to use the devices and allow you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
Hearing Aid Evaluation & Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, you and your audiologist will discuss what style of hearing aid you can wear, based on your type and degree of hearing loss. The conversation will also revolve around your lifestyle, budget and fashion preferences, as we understand there’s more to you than just your hearing loss.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Even with continuous care and maintenance, hearing aids will eventually require repairs as they age. Even when individuals take the best care, there’s always the accidental drop. Our audiologists can provide repairs on your devices in our office, usually within the same day.
Hearing Evaluations for Children
Hearing loss isn’t limited to those over the age of 65; more and more children are being diagnosed with hearing loss. At El Paso Hearing Aid and Audiology, our audiologists provide pediatric care and hearing evaluations for children.
We participate in the Texas Specialized Telecommunications Assistance Program to provide help for people who have difficulty hearing on the telephone. If you have a hearing loss, you may qualify for a FREE amplified telephone or other telecommunications device.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus, characterized as a constant ringing or buzzing in the ear, can be a debilitating health issue. At El Paso Hearing Aid and Audiology Center, we provide tinnitus evaluation and management to get to the root cause of the tinnitus; after all, tinnitus is actually a symptom of a larger health condition. Once we determine the cause of your tinnitus, our team can help you determine how to best manage it. Best practices include: hearing aids, white noise machines, cognitive behavioral therapy and more.
