                                              THE EAR:  A MIRACLE ORGAN

 

 

 

The Audiology Department at West Texas Rehabilitation Center has long been recognized for its outstanding service to the hearing impaired in Abilene and the Big Country area.  Our commitment to the patient suffering from dizziness and/or imbalance is also unparalleled.  We continue to maintain the highest levels of education and certification in Audiology, which allows us to provide services that other facilities in our area cannot.  But most important to all of our staff is our caring attitude toward each and every patient who comes to us.

Our Audiologists have Doctoral degrees and are on site to provide the actual tests and screenings required to determine the hearing solution that is right for you.  Their education alone requires eight years of training and 2,000-plus hours of clinical experience before they are allowed to see patients.  This distinguishes our audiology staff from independent hearing aid vendors and suppliers, the business dealings of which are largely unregulated and without medical oversight or supervision.

 


 

Our audiology staff works on salary—not commission—so their only vested interest is in improving the quality of life of their patients through better hearing and balance. So, stop waiting for your hearing to improve on its own. Call Abilene (325) 793-3490 / San Angelo (325) 223-6360 or email us today!
