A Wide Range of Hearing Health Care Services Are Available for Individuals of All Ages.
Our doctors are skilled in the areas of childhood hearing loss, adult diagnostic procedures, hearing aid selection and provision, assistive listening technology, and development of effective communication skills through aural rehabilitation. Our services include the following:
Complete Audiological Evaluation
At Beverly Hills Hearing Center, we provide complete audiological evaluations to diagnose the type, degree, and configuration of your hearing loss. After an in depth case history and testing is obtained, an audiologist can help to answer why you may be having difficulty hearing in specific environments.
Hearing Aid Evaluations
Once your hearing has been tested, our doctors of audiology can recommend whether a hearing aid, cochlear implant, or medical intervention with an Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) physician is best for you. Beverly Hills Hearing Center tailors recommendations based upon the degree of hearing loss and lifestyle of the individual. Hearing aids are available at range of price points from basic to premium technology.

Hearing Aid Verification Measures
Real-ear measurement (REM) is the measurement of sound pressure level in a patient’s ear canal when a hearing aid is worn and in use. REM is the most up to date and preferred method (per the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and American Academy of Audiology) to verify the performance of hearing aids. This testing is an efficient method for assessing the benefit provided by a hearing aid as compared to the degree of your specific hearing loss in various frequency regions.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Beverly Hills Hearing Center proudly works with most major manufacturers. If your previously purchased hearing aid needs to be repaired we are here to process quickly and at a reasonable cost. Call our office for details.
Assistive Listening Devices
Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) help you to hear more clearly in difficult listening environments such as groups, theatres, and with televisions. An ALD is essentially an amplifier that collects speech to help boost the intended signal while reducing the competing background noise. This is what audiologists call “improving the signal to noise ratio.” Typically these devices are recommended in conjunction with the use of hearing aids which will assist in everyday settings. A free amplified and captioned phone may also be available. Ask your audiologist for details.
Musician’s plugs are a custom product used to protect against noise exposure while preserving fidelity of sounds such as speech and music. Musician’s plugs typically provide a “flat” response so that bass and treble notes are not favored, thus distorting perception. Many people risk their hearing by either wearing ear plugs loosely or wearing no protection at all in order to hear voices, machinery or music more clearly. Regular use of custom hearing protection is vital in the protection of hearing and prevention of hearing loss. Noise exposure can occur with a one-time exposure or accumulate over an extended period of time. Loud noise exposure can also cause tinnitus- a ringing, buzzing, or roaring in the ears or head.
Custom Hearing Protection
Custom hearing protection is available to protect against noise exposure or to prevent specific outer ear conditions. For example, swim plugs are used by our swimming and surfing patients in the prevention of otitis externa (swimmer’s ear) and exostosis, an outer ear condition that arises due to exposure to cold water. IFBs (also known as interruptible feedback or interrupt for broadcast) are also available for those in television, filmmaking, video production, and radio broadcast. A customized earmold impression is taken by a certified audiologist to ensure a comfortable and sealed fit.
*A clear ear canal is important in obtaining an earmold. If you tend to accumulate excess cerumen (ear wax), please consult with your physician or call the audiologist prior to your appointment.
