Comprehensive hearing services in Florida.
A hearing test is the first step in determining if you have hearing loss as well as what degree of loss it is. We provide diagnostic hearing tests in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, and Arcadia for adults of all ages. The purpose of the hearing test is to assess how well you can hear different sounds at various frequencies. We will also perform a speech assessment to determine if your hearing loss is affecting your ability to recognize speech in quiet and in noise.
Industrial Hearing Screening
Loud noise exposure is one of the most common causes of hearing loss in adults of all ages. If you work in an environment where the noise level can be hazardous, it’s important to have your hearing checked on a regular basis. At Delta Hearing, we provide industrial hearing screenings that meet OSHA standards. We can quickly test your hearing and provide you with educational resources on how to best keep your ears safe.
Hearing Aid Evaluation
After we’ve tested your hearing, we will recommend a hearing aid that suits your unique needs. Based off the results of your audiogram, we will find a device that will address your degree of hearing loss while also matching your lifestyle and budget.
Hearing Aid Fitting
After you’ve chosen your hearing aids, we will expertly fit the devices to your unique ear shape. Then, we will program them to your exact hearing loss using the results of your audiogram. It’s important that your hearing aids fit securely and comfortably in your ears and provide you with the right amount of amplification. We encourage you to come back in for follow-up appointments as you adjust to your new hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Sometimes your hearing aids may require servicing. Our hearing specialists are experts in hearing aid technology and fix almost any issue. Some common hearing aid complaints we receive are feedback, whistling, or muffled amplification. If you are experiencing a hearing aid problem, bring your devices in. We can fix most issues in office. If your hearing aids need a more comprehensive repair, we can send them to the manufacturer for you.
We can create custom fit earmolds and earplugs for optimal hearing protection. Loud noise exposure is one of the most common causes of hearing loss in people of all ages. We recommend wearing hearing protection any time the sound levels exceed 85 decibels. We can create specialty earplugs for hunting, swimming, sleep, motorsports, occupational work, and for musicians.

Earwax, medically known as cerumen, is a natural substance of the ear designed to keep it clean and healthy. While earwax is necessary for good ear function, sometimes it can become impacted. When this happens earwax can cause clogged ears, discomfort, and even muffled hearing.
If you have a build-up of earwax, you may be tempted to remove it on your own with a cotton swab. However, this can cause more damage than good. Cotton swabs can push earwax further into the ear canal, causing a blockage. They can also harm the delicate parts of your ear canal or eardrum.
If your ears feel clogged and muffled due to earwax, contact us for an appointment. We can safely and effectively remove earwax in office, so you can hear clearly again.
Tinnitus, or commonly known as “ringing in the ears,” is the perception of hearing sounds in your ears or head when no external noise is present. Over 50 million people in the U.S. experience tinnitus, and it affects everyone different.

For others, they may have permanent tinnitus, which can be debilitating and affect quality of life.
At Delta Hearing, we have certified tinnitus management specialists on our team that can help you experience relief from ringing in the ears. The first step is a hearing evaluation. During this appointment we will assess your hearing and perform a tinnitus test. Once we’ve looked at your overall hearing ability, then we can recommend a tinnitus treatment. If annoying tinnitus is affecting your quality of life, contact us for a hearing exam today.
