Audiology

Audiology is the applied science of hearing measurement. Audiologists work with people who have permanent hearing loss to assist with rehabilitation.

The Audiology Department at McFarland Clinic provides testing for all age groups. Hearing aid dispensing is also provided.

Hearing aid evaluations are available for persons interested in obtaining hearing aids. Patients with certain problems like ringing, dizziness, draining ears, and sudden hearing loss should first consult an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician (ENT).

Special services this department provides include distortion product otoacoustic emissions testing, which is used for testing newborn babies and hard-to-test populations. Musicians' plugs, electronic hearing protectors, and swim plugs are also available.
