Our Team's Mission
We believe that life is improved by successful communication. We are dedicated to helping people hear better so they can fully enjoy the people and activities that bring meaning to each day.
Audiologists at Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center can evaluate the hearing of children and adults with a hearing test. We perform different tests to determine if a hearing loss is present or not. If there is a hearing loss we will determine:
- The amount (or degree) of hearing loss
- The type of hearing loss
- If the hearing loss is permanent or temporary
- How the hearing loss will likely affect the individual in their daily life
- What treatment options are available
You can expect to be with us for about an hour while we take a thorough case history to understand your concerns and then customize the testing and solutions to meet your needs. You can count on continuity of care from a team dedicated to your well-being.
Test results are available immediately and the audiologist will explain the results to the patient and/or the family. Which tests are given will be determined by the patient’s chief complaint and areas of concern. CHSC conducts a variety of hearing tests including:
- Middle Ear Testing/Tympanometry
- Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE)
- Speech Testing
- Central Auditory Processing
- Cochlear Implant Assessment
The need for hearing assistance varies widely among individuals—it is not one size fits all! That is why you should expect personalized service with solutions customized for your particular needs, not a warehouse approach.
- Wide selection of hearing aid products and services
- Highly skilled team of audiologists with over 100 years of combined experience
- Research-based, progressive agency focused on continuous education
- Ability to work with individuals of all ages and abilities with solutions tailored to the individual’s needs
- Full support system: In addition to hearing testing, product selection and follow-up appointments, we also offer speech and language therapies and aural rehabilitation to help you get the best benefit from your hearing aids
