PEDIATRIC HEARING TESTS
We offer complete pediatric evaluations for children ages 1 year and older. Our pediatric evaluation includes immittance testing and distortion product otoacoustic emissions testing. Our hearing specialists have extensive experience helping children. In addition, we also work in conjunction with local pediatricians and pediatric ENT’s, to provide your child with the best care possible.

Cerumen (earwax) can build-up inside the ear canal and cause a blockage. A build-up of cerumen can cause you discomfort and can muffle your hearing. If you have clogged ears due to earwax, our audiologists can safely and effectively remove cerumen in office to help you hear better. Our cerumen removal services are quick and painless. Contact us today for an ear exam so you can hear clearly again.
At our hearing clinic, we will expertly fit and program your hearing aids to your individual hearing needs. Using real-ear measurement, we will fit your hearing aids to the exact size and shape of your ear. Once your hearing aids are fitted to your unique ear shape, we will then measure the sound pressure level to ensure you can hear your absolute best.
Unlike other hearing practices who use the hearing aid manufacturers pre-set programing, we use real-ear measurement to provide you with the best fit possible. Because everyone’s hearing ability is different, and every ear size and shape is unique, we use the best method to ensure your hearing aids are customized to you.
HEARING AID REPAIR
We can help you diagnose any problems with your hearing aids and fix them so you can continue living your best life. Depending on how damaged your hearing aid is we may have to send the device to the manufacturer for repairs. However, most issues can be fixed in-office. The price of repairs is dependent on the cost of replacing parts and if your hearing aids are still in their warranty.
We understand your hearing is essential to your everyday life, that’s why we will do our best to get your hearing aids functioning their best for you again.
Some common hearing aid repairs include:
- Repair of the battery door
- Repair of the battery compartment due to corrosion
- Tubing replacement
- Reprogramming of the hearing aid
- Replacement of domes

Tinnitus, commonly known as “ringing in the ears,” can be incredibly disruptive to your daily life. Anyone can experience tinnitus, even if they don’t have hearing loss. Our team has extensive experience helping patients manage their tinnitus. We will work with you to discover the cause of your tinnitus and to create a treatment plan that will help stop ringing in the ears.

Whenever you are exposed to loud noise you should wear hearing protection. Whether you are attending a live concert, mowing the lawn, or hunting, wearing hearing protection will keep your ears safe.
At Best Life Hearing Center, we make custom earmolds and earplugs to protect your ears from loud noise. We will take an impression of your ear to create a custom ear-mold that will fit the exact shape of your ear. We also offer custom swim earmolds to help prevent swimmer’s ear.
