At Audiology of Tulsa, one of our goals is to inform our patients of all the possible hearing solutions and advancements in technology that are available on the market. We have many services to offer you or your loved one, whether you need a hearing test, purchasing batteries or syncing you hearing device to a mobile phone. We are here to service your hearing needs!
After your hearing evalution with an audiologist, they will make a recommendation on what hearing aids will best suit your lifestyle. An order will then be placed, and we will schedule a time for your fitting. When your new hearing aids arrive, we will meet again. We will make certain that your hearing aids fit your ears properly, and they will be programmed for your specific hearing loss. You will be fully instructed in the use and care of your hearing aids. Also, we will provide you with helpful tips on how to get adjusted to clarity of sounds you will be hearing.
The hearing evaluation is a battery of tests which determines your ability to hear and interpret sound. It all starts with a thorough history, and visual examination of the ear canal and eardrum. We can perform this test at all three of our locations.
A Video Electronystagmogram (VNG) is the most common audiological test ordered for individuals complaining of dizziness or vertigo. This test records and measures voluntary and involuntary eye movements (the vestibular ocular reflex), specifically nystagmus. Nystagmus is an involuntary back and forth jerking movement of the eyes that occurs when the entire balance system is stimulated. This test is done at the Lang Medical Building.

Auditory brainstem response (ABR) is a diagnostic test which is similar to an elctroencephalogram (EEG). This procedure involves the use of clicking sounds to stimulate the auditory nerve, which produces an electical response. Electrodes placed on the patient's face and ears pick up the electical activity of the nerve, and a computer displays the results for the audiologist to interpret. Also known as BERA, BAER. This test is done at the Lang Medical Building. To read more about the ABR, click here.
It is common that the reason you are unable to hear from your hearing aids is due to too much earwax buildup. Not only are we able to clean the hearing aids, but expert cerumen (earwax) removal is performed in our offices by our audiologists. We have all the tools necessary in office to ensure the wax is removed safely. It is recommended not to use Q-tips or bobby pins at home, as it is unsafe and can potentially damage the ear canal or ear drum. Our audiologists are clinically trained to safely remove the wax. Call today to schedule a time with an audiologist if you feel you need cerumen removal.

Our technicians are highly trained in servicing hearing aids. We have a lab in the Lang Medical Building. Often, many problems can be resolved with a simple cleaning. Here we do full cleanings and repairs on your hearing aids.
We offer two year warranties on our hearing aids. The warranty period begins from the date of purchase, and includes cleanings, repairs, and adjustments at no charge.
When we clean the hearing aids in the office, we ensure that they are free of debris that may be preventing you from hearing at your best. There are many cases where a hearing aid appears not to be working, and often a thorough cleaning can resolve the issue. Our fully equipped lab and trained technicians are here to make sure that they look and sound their best.
Our audiologist assistants are trained to take impressions of your ears, which ensure a secure fit that delivers quality sound. No two ears are the same, and a custom made mold guarantees an exceptional sound experience. For musicians, we recommend taking your expertly made impressions to a company called 64 Audio, that specializes in musicians monitors. If you prefer non-custom, we have stock plugs available for purchase.
For more information on how the impressions are made, call our office at 918-745-9052.
