Hearing Associates of Las Vegas are proud providers of comprehensive hearing services all throughout Las Vegas and Clark County. Our patients enjoy personalized care and our determination to help them enjoy the best hearing possible. Below are the various services we offer at our two office locations.
Having regular hearing exams are important to ensure you are enjoying a full range of hearing which is why Hearing Associates offer comprehensive hearing evaluations.
During your hearing evaluation, we will use a series of diagnostic tools to determine your hearing and inner ear health. A couple of the tests which we may use to assess your hearing are:
- Pure tone air and bone conduction testing – You will be tested by first having tones play through headphones at a variety of pitches and volumes. Our testers will then reduce the volume until you cannot hear the tones anymore, which you will indicate by raising your hand. After that test, a special device will be placed on the bone behind your ear and we will have you signal like the test prior when you hear a tone.
- Speech reception and word recognition – This test is to help assess how well you can hear and understand regular speech. You will be asked to listen to a series of words are repeat them back. The words will be given at different volumes to help assess if there are volume levels you aren’t hearing.
Our hearing evaluations generally take 20 minutes to complete. The information we gather with the evaluation will also help us assess if you are a candidate for hearing aids or other hearing devices. Be sure to contact our office to set up your hearing evaluation.

- Ear Protection – Protect your hearing with custom hearing protection designed for musicians, gun enthusiasts, swimmers and for people that work in noisy environments. By using custom hearing protection, you can experience a greater level of security than just using generic hearing protection.
- Cerumen Management – Cerumen, commonly known as ear wax, is normal. A healthy ear cleans itself – small hairs inside the ear remove the wax slowly.

We can help determine if you are experiencing problems due to earwax and can use a variety of techniques to clear your ears with minimal discomfort.
