The Leading Team of Advanced Audiologists for West Annapolis, MD

Joseph West Aldridge, a captain in the 42nd Virginia Cavalry during the Civil War, helped Katherine and Elizabeth Giddings transform the old Norwood Beale plantation into a community, dividing the entire parcel into 50’x150’ lots where families began to build what would become West Annapolis. Additional 2 to 5 acre plots with its rich soil yielded an abundant supply of fruits and vegetables, giving Annapolis the reputation as the best vegetable market in the state.

West Annapolis continues to be a vibrant community with a unique commercial area all its own. Recent planning sessions have led to ongoing redevelopment projects focused on the six block commercial area surrounded by Taylor and Monterey Avenues, Rowe Blvd., and Annapolis Street, providing a promising vision for the future of West Annapolis and the larger community.

The people who live and work in West Annapolis are among the nation's leading experts in their various occupations. Audiology Associates has been the trusted hearing experts in Maryland for the past 44 years, maintaining a clinic in Annapolis, another in Glen Burnie, and 10 additional locations throughout the state.

How We Can Help

Your Better Hearing Journey Starts With A Comprehensive Hearing Assessment

One of the most difficult aspects of recognizing a hearing loss is the fact that it comes on at such a slow pace that it is next to impossible to notice the day-to-day changes. Consequently, most people put off hearing tests because they don’t believe they have a problem or it’s really not that important to them.

In reality, 1 out of 8 Americans experiences hearing loss, likely caused by the increased exposure to loud noise, without ever being aware that they’ve developed a problem. This rising trend means that hearing loss is the third most common health concern across the nation.

In spite of these alarming statistics, our health screening priorities tend to include regular dental and vision testing, as well as having our blood pressure and cholesterol checked, but we often ignore regular hearing assessments. Given that hearing loss is a growing health concern, it has never been more important to schedule a quick, non-invasive, and simple hearing assessment with one of our hearing professionals.

Find the Right Advanced Technology Hearing Aid To Fit Your Lifestyle

It was probably neither an aspiration nor an expectation that you would ever have to wear hearing aids. Thinking about wearing them makes many people nervous because they recall those bulky, unattractive gadgets worn by their parents or grandparents.

Modern hearing aids are nothing like those outdated devices, thanks to the same micro-digital technology that has made cell phones smaller yet more powerful. Today’s hearing aids are smaller, lighter, process sound with much greater clarity, and are so discrete to wear that many of our patients tell us that their friends, co-workers, or neighbors have never noticed that they wear hearing aids.

Features of advanced technology hearing aids include larger, longer-lasting, rechargeable batteries, as well as the capability to connect your smartphone, television, computer, and other digital devices directly to your hearing aids for an enhanced hearing experience. Our hearing aid experts are ready to help guide you through the process of selecting and fitting your new hearing aids, as well as providing ongoing follow-up care.

Improve Your Ear Health With Professional Earwax Removal

That yellowish substance that you often find coming out of your ears is known as cerumen or earwax. Though it might be a bit annoying to deal with at times, earwax plays an important role in helping keep your ears healthy by providing moisture as well as removing dirt, debris, and foreign objects from your ear canal.

The important role it plays makes it necessary to maintain a delicate balance when it comes to dealing with earwax. Too little earwax can lead to itching, irritation, and infection in your ear canal, but too much earwax can lead to buildup, muffled sound, and play havoc with hearing aids.

Because it is an important natural process and you can do damage to your ear canal and eardrum by being too aggressive with cotton swabs and other cleaning methods, it is best to allow a professional to remove earwax for you. Our earwax removal specialists can remove earwax using specialized equipment, techniques, and expertise to ensure better ear health.
