Are you ready to start living your life to the fullest again? Without the barrier of hearing loss, you’ll feel reconnected to the people, activities, and sounds that matter most, without the stress and strain that hearing impairment creates.
At Salem Audiology Clinic, we’ve been helping people overcome hearing loss in the Willamette Valley since 1982. While things have changed quite a bit since then—especially hearing aid technology—our approach has remained the same, which is that of a small, family-owned business that treats its patients like it would its own family members.
And that’s what sets us apart from the rest. We’ll work with you until we find the appropriate solution, and we’ll be the first to tell you if hearing aids are not required. If you are a candidate for hearing aids, we’ll guide you through the process of selecting the best model based on your lifestyle and budget, and we’ll program, fine-tune, and optimize your selection for the best results.
We are and always have been in the business of building long-term relationships, and your hearing is our number-one priority from the moment you call to schedule your first appointment. So go ahead and pick up the phone; you’ll be glad you did.

When you arrive for your hearing exam, you will be greeted by the front office staff and asked to fill out several forms, including those that record your personal information, medical history and insurance verification.
When your hearing exam begins, your audiologist will review key personal information with you and will ask you a few questions to discover the specific types of environments in which you may be experiencing hearing loss and hearing problems.
Next, your audiologist may look into your ears by using an otoscope. This instrument is used to see the ear canal and the eardrum and whether or not there is earwax obstructing the canal. Sometimes the audiologist will have a video otoscope, so you can see inside your ear as well.
