The Audiology office of Dr. Gene McHugh provides earwax removal, professional audiometry, and hearing aid related services.  We are not a sales oriented office.  Fees are lower and if you don't need hearing aids, we will tell you.  Please note - Medicare covers 0% (i.e., nothing!) on hearing aids to ear physicians, audiologists or hearing aid dispensers. So, compare hearing prices and choose a provider who has the training, credentials and experience to handle your individual hearing and/or tinnitus problem. For information about Dr. McHugh's background, click on his picture to the left.    

The building below is a professional duplex owned and operated by Dentist Dr. Mary Purinsh on the right, and Audiologist Dr. Gene McHugh on the left.  The office is located at the corner of 14th Street on West Colorado Avenue. Please call for an appointment.

We publish our prices because they are almost always lower, sometimes unbelievably lower, on the same make and model of hearing aid.  Before you buy, check and see just how much better our prices are on Phonak and Oticon hearing aid products.   
Hearing aids   
Colorado Springs Audiology is an independent audiology clinic.  We are not owned, associated, or franchised by any hearing aid company, audiology, or ENT group.  We are not limited to using any certain brands.  As such, we can use high end products such as Oticon and Phonak at substantially lower costs.  All hearing aids have a 100% money-back guarantee, with two-year warranty, including two-year coverage against loss/damage.  Please note:  Medicare  does not cover hearing aids. 
Hearing Evaluations 
All audiometric exams are conducted in a soundproof room with calibrated equipment  and meet the highest standards of audiometric practice. Exams are $50, and fees are waived if a patient is referred by his or her physician or healthcare provider.* 
Information for physicians and other healthcare professionals.
Earwax removal  
We are one of the few audiology offices where earwax is removed with the aid of a binocular microscope Insurance including Medicare does not cover ear wax removal.  The fee for ear cleaning is $25.00 per ear and is private pay only.  Dr. McHugh has 25 years of experience cleaning ears.  However, occasionally removal is beyond his level of training and experience.  If it is determined the procedure requires further expertise, you will be referred to your PCP or to a medical ear specialist. Online publications regarding earwax removal by Dr. McHugh.
Custom Earpieces  
Custom ear products are available for hearing instrument users, shooters, employees who work around excessive noise, along with special  earmolds for pilots, broadcasters, Bluetooth cell phones, notebook users, and anything else that requires a custom ear product.
