We will find the best solution for your hearing problem.
At the Hearing Diagnostic Center, our state and nationally licensed audiologist, Dr. Jennifer Horak, will conduct a complete evaluation of your hearing, which enables her to determine the type and degree of hearing loss that you have along with the right solution for your needs. Testing is an important part of the evaluation.

- Frequency specific tonal test - measures hearing sensitivity to frequency tones in the range of average speech sounds.
- Speech recognition test - measures the ability to hear and understand spoken words and messages.
We also test for specific diseases related to hearing and balance.
Dr. Horak and the Hearing Diagnostic Center also provide site of Lesion and audiovestibular testing which are a series of very specific and sensitive tests to diagnose a variety of diseases of the hearing and balance systems, such as Acoustic Neuroma, Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, Labyrinthine Vertigo, Meniere’s Disease, and Vestibular Neuronitis.

Common misconceptions about hearing aids
They are so big!
Technology has advanced so that hearing aids can be smaller and less noticeable without losing their effectiveness.
They’ll make me look old!
Consider this: which person will be perceived as “older,” the one who misunderstands conservations and is constantly asking others to repeat themselves, or the one who is actively participating in a conversation while wearing hearing aids?
They’re too expensive!
Hearing aids are like care: you really do get what you pay for. At the Hearing Diagnostic Center (as with any reputable hearing aid dispenser) you get a 30-day trial period. If you try the aids for 30 days and decide not to keep them, you may return them for a refund minus a fitting fee. It’s practically risk-free to try a hearing aid.
Someone I know got hearing aids and never wears them.
There's probably a reason that they’re not wearing them. Maybe they are uncomfortable, too loud, or produce poor sound. In recent years, great technological efforts have focused on these problems. At the Hearing Diagnostic Center, the sales price you pay for the hearing aids includes our services. You may bring your hearing aids in for any reason and we will work with you to make it right. We are committed to working with you to give you the most comfortable and natural sound possible.
