Hearing Examinations - All audiometric exams are conducted in a sound proof room with calibrated equipment  and meet the highest standards of audiometric practice. Exams are $50 and fees are waived if patient is referred by his or her physician or healthcare provider.  We do not participate with Medicare or any other insurance.

Industrial Testing  
- We have been providing "onsite" OSHA compliant testing services as part of a "hearing conservation program" for over 15 years.  Our goal is to keep workers' hearing safe and reduce hearing related workman's compensation claims.

Earwax removal  
- We will clean your ears!
   We are one of the few offices where earwax is carefully removed with the aid of a binocular microscope.   The fee is $25.00 per earInsurance including Medicare does not cover earwax removal.  Online publications regarding earwax removal by Dr. McHugh.
Hearing aids    Click here to see our Prices 
 - Have you noticed few hearing aid providers post their prices.  We do because our fees are low and we have not increased our fees in over five years.    We only use the best quality products for our patients and that's the reason we are so popular in Colorado Springs.  We provide multiple models and styles of hearing aids and include a two-year warranty and two-year coverage against loss/damage on all instruments.   And, Colorado Springs Audiology is not owned or franchised by any hearing instrument companies and not limited to using a limited number of  brands.    

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, blue tooth cell phones, notebook users and anything else that requires a custom ear product. More about HEARING PROTECTION.
Inner ear monitors For musicians or music enthusiasts, custom made inner ear monitors provide the optimum listening experience.  We use Westone products for most of our custom fittings.  We also make custom ear impressions for other inner ear manufactures such as 1964, Kasier 10 and JH Audio according to their specifications.
