Norfolk Audiology provides personalized solutions for your hearing, communication, and tinnitus concerns. We are committed to helping our patients enjoy an enhanced quality of life through on-point diagnostic hearing exams, customized treatment options, support, and education through communication strategies.
At Norfolk Audiology, we offer various diagnostic hearing exams so we can get an accurate picture of your hearing health. We perform assessments of all auditory functions including otoscopic exams, middle ear assessments, comprehensive hearing testing, speech testing, and more.
Tinnitus is one of our specializations at Norfolk Audiology. While tinnitus is more than a symptom of an underlying medical condition rather than a disease itself, we see to it that our patients get an accurate tinnitus evaluation to ensure that the root cause of the ringing in the ears is determined to reach a targeted treatment or intervention plan.
Our tinnitus evaluations include an assessment of the middle ear and an otoacoustic emissions test. Just like hearing loss, tinnitus is unique for each patient, hence, we will be performing a series of tests to determine the specific volume and pitch of your tinnitus.
Ear Wax Removal
Earwax is a naturally occurring secretion produced by the ear to serve as a lubricant and protective barrier from dirt, foreign objects, and other debris. However, too much earwax can be bothersome and might lead to unpleasant hearing conditions.
Norfolk Audiology offers professional ear wax removal services that involve state-of-the-art tools and equipment to clean, vacuum, wash out or flush earwax. We use the latest technology in earwax removal, specifically ear irrigator machines, to ensure that your ears are clean while keeping your ears safe during the process.
Sensorineural Hearing Loss Treatment
Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss that involves damage in the hair cells of the inner ear. Once the inner ear hair cells are broken or damaged, they cannot grow back or regenerate. Individuals diagnosed with sensorineural hearing loss are recommended to use hearing aids to alleviate the loss of hearing.
Our team at Norfolk Audiology can create a personalized treatment approach for sensorineural hearing loss. We provide a wide range of hearing aids for various types and levels of hearing loss. We make sure that all devices are fitted and verified using real ear measurements.
Meniere’s Disease Treatment
Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that can cause dizzy spells (vertigo) and hearing loss. We offer diagnosis and evaluation for Meniere’s disease. Once we determine the cause and severity of Meniere’s disease, we can create a personalized treatment plan and apply various techniques to help manage the symptoms.

Hearing Aid Fitting & Real Ear Measurement
Hearing aid fitting plays a big role in the success of your hearing aid journey. Our team at Norfolk Audiology incorporates real ear measurements in our hearing aid fittings so we can accurately measure the volume our patients are receiving in their hearing aid, down to the tiniest detail.
Real ear measurement is a simple procedure, as simple as placing a probe tube into the ear canal to measure the volume of the hearing aid while it is also inside the ear. However, this simple procedure is considered the gold standard to determine whether a hearing aid user is receiving the correct levels of amplification based on their hearing requirements.
