What we offer
Comprehensive & holistic care
Unlike other clinics that are limited to offering hearing aids from one brand, we offer solutions and technology from a wide range of top-tier brands, enabling our providers to find the perfect device and fit for each patient.
Treating hearing loss starts here
When you visit in person for a risk-free evaluation, you’ll receive an in-ear examination as well as a comprehensive hearing test, including Otoscopy, Tympanometry, Tone Test, Bone Conduction and Speech Discrimination. Can’t make it to the office? Meet with us curbside or virtually!
Hearing aids & treatment
Our clinicians are extremely knowledgeable on the latest technology and will work with you to find the best solution to fit your lifestyle. We offer a wide range of hearing aid brands, with styles, and technology to fit your needs and budget.
Tinnitus testing & treatment
While there is no cure for tinnitus, it can improve greatly with treatment. A full examination including diagnostic testing often pinpoints the underlying cause of the tinnitus, and various treatments are available to help with the symptoms.
We specialize in hearing protection for recreation and high-noise jobs, with different levels of attenuation and protection available. From custom in-ear monitors to filtered ear plugs, we have multiple options for protection.
Navigating your insurance benefits is no easy task. That’s why we have insurance specialists on-staff who are happy to verify your benefits and take the time to explain them. Relax in the knowledge that we work with most major insurance brands — and let us handle the hard stuff.

Stacy SchulteI am a first-time hearing aid patient. Dr Fick was so kind and helpful through the entire process. I appreciate that I was given time to think about my options, and he patiently answered all of my questions. The office staff was helpful with the insurance process. I know that I will get great care in the future from everyone in this office. I would recommend them to anyone with hearing concerns!
RoxAnn RaisnerI'm so glad that this office was recommended to me. Getting in for a hearing test was fast and FREE!! Dr. Steer was great! He explained what was going to happen then took the time to go over the results afterwards. I highly recommend this office. Professional, courteous, and they listen (no pun intended, LOL). The location was easy to find too.
Gordon HaymanThe Audiologist was great. Very friendly, took his time to explain everything and was very thorough. Great customer service and obviously cared about me and my needs. Highly recommended!

Frequently asked questions
Can you bill wax removal to my insurance?
Audiologists and Hearing Care providers cannot bill insurance for cerumen (wax) removal. We perform this service to those who have purchased hearing aids from us as a step in providing overall hearing aid care. Those who have not purchased hearing aids from us will be billed a nominal office visit fee for cerumen (wax) removal.
How do I properly insert my hearing protection devices?
Some hearing protection devices are marked red (right) and blue (left). If they are not marked, they are not side specific.
For custom products: Slide the thinner side into your ear canal and twist the plug until it fits comfortably in the ear. Pull up from the top of the ear, to straighten the ear canal, as you push the ear mold into the ear.
For non-custom products: Slide the thinner side into your ear canal and pull up from the top of the ear, to straighten the ear canal, as you push the ear plug into the ear. If you are using a foam plug, tightly squeeze and roll it before putting in the ear canal.
How is custom hearing protection different from non-custom hearing protection?
Custom hearing protection is modeled after an impression taken of the ear. This will provide the best and most comfortable fit in the ear, which will eliminate ear pain or soreness that can occur with non-custom products. Custom hearing protection also provides a tight seal in the ear that prevents the unwanted high-level noise to leak into the ear.
