Services at DC Audiology

Audiology is a healthcare profession concerned with the study of both normal and disordered hearing. The profession evolved from closely related fields such as speech-language pathology, medicine, special education, psychology, and hearing instrumentation. The term Audiology, in the most literal sense, refers to the science of hearing.

DC Audiology is here to provide the greater Washington DC area with the following services and beyond.

Hearing Evaluations

This is a thorough assessment of hearing, speech understanding, and auditory function. Exam results and recommendations will be provided immediately, at the end of the test session. Patients will always have time for additional questions or concerns.

Vestibular Evaluations

Videonystagmography (VNG) test battery is used to diagnose or rule out the underlying cause of a patient's dizziness or vertigo. Tests include assessment of a patient's ability to maintain balance in various conditions, measurement of eye tracking ability using infrared googles, placement in various positions to determine if vertigo is induced, and use of warm and cool air in the ears to stimulate the balance system in the inner ear.

Canalith Repositioning (Epley Maneuver)

This is used to treat benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV); the most common cause of episodic vertigo.

Lyric Hearing Aids

Semi-implantable, 100% invisible hearing aids. These devices are left in place for months at a time; no daily insertion and removal, no risk of loss, no battery changing, no maintenance. Patients that are candidates for this style of hearing aid are measured for and fit with the devices in the clinic and return a few times a year to have them replaced.
