Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are electronic digital devices used to improve communication abilities. Hearing aids are not corrective. Rather, they enhance a person's ability to hear based on the hearing loss and listening environment.

St. Luke's utilizes the world's best manufacturers to provide you with the finest quality hearing aids such as Oticon, Phonak, Siemens and Starkey. Hearing aids come in many styles, but not all styles are appropriate for each specific hearing loss.

Our Staff

An audiologist holds a master's degree or certification from an accredited university and has received specialized training in the prevention, identification and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders. Audiologists are required to complete a full-time internship and to pass a national competency examination by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association for Certification. With a graduate-level education and professional certificate and license, an audiologist is the most qualified professional to perform hearing tests, refer patients for medical treatment and provide rehabilitation services such as hearing instruments.
