Alta Bates Summit offers a comprehensive audiology services program, located at the Herrick Campus (View Herrick Campus Map).
Our services are available for pediatric and adult clients, and include a wide range of diagnostic tools and procedures.
Services include: audiological testing to determine type and degree of hearing loss, pure tone air, bone and speech testing, middle ear assessment, auditory processing screening and testing, otoacoustic emissions testing and auditory brainstem evoked response testing. A hearing aid dispensing program is also an integral part of our services.
The Audiology Department also oversees all newborn hearing screenings (routinely preformed by our Women and Infants program) as now mandated by the State of California.
Our department contracts with a large number of insurance providers. However, please keep in mind that hearing aids are not covered by Medicare but may be covered in whole or part by a limited number of insurance plans.
Appointments are available Monday through Friday. For more information or to arrange an appointment, please call (510) 204-4616.
