The Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Audiology department consists of four fulltime audiologists. Both basic and advanced audiologic services are available. Traditional audiometry (hearing tests) are utilized for the majority of our patients. Sophisticated assessments of hearing are performed in specific patients through the use of Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) and Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE).
Evaluation of the balance system is available through the use of computerized Electronystagnography (ENG).
The traditional and advanced techniques provided within the department allows for the comprehensively evaluation of hearing in children and adults.
Hearing amplification (hearing aids) are dispensed through our Audiology clinic. We custom-fit the hearing aids to our patient's needs, anatomy, and wishes.
