Evaluation & Consultation
Services at RK Audiology include hearing evaluations and the programming and repair of all major brands of hearing instruments including Lyric Hearing, Oticon, Phonak, Resound, Signia, and Widex.
To evaluate the performance of hearing instruments, we use Real Ear Measurement, Speech Mapping, and the latest programming software.
Our audiologists utilize Video Otoscopy – state-of-the-art equipment allowing both you and the audiologist to view your ears with a small camera which transmits images to a larger screen. We provide ear cleaning (earwax removal), ear impressions and the fitting of custom hearing earmolds, earplugs and headphones.
