Pasadena ENT & Allergy / Audiology offers all styles of hearing aids, including the newest  Blue-tooth Behind-the-Ear hearing aids, from manufacturers such as Phonak, Oticon, Widex, and Starkey.  

These devices, which are programmed for YOUR individual hearing loss:

  • Automatically reduce surrounding noise, as in crowded rooms and restaurants.
  • Enhance your high frequency hearing for the voices of women & children.
  • Automatically focus on a speaker, and enhance their speech for you.
  • Connect wirelessly to TVs, phones, cell phones, theater / church / airport P.A. systems.
  • Suppress annoying (whistling) feedback.
  • Are Water & Dust Resistant.

 All hearing aids are digital and have a 30-day evaluation period so you can try out the device and be sure it fits your needs.

For many people with draining ears or chronic infections, blockage or damage in the outer or middle ear, or loss of all hearing in one ear, even the most advanced and powerful hearing aids may not help.  Our surgical and audiological team have a solution to help you hear better without the use of traditional hearing aids -- a state-of-the-art Implantable Hearing System! We offer two implant systems:  Cochlear BAHA and Sophono Alpha 2.

Dr. Dunlevy and Dr. Jaquish are two of the few surgeons who are able to surgically implant a hearing  system that sends sound waves directly through the bone behind the ear, bypassing damaged areas.  This implant hearing system is covered by Medicare and most major insurance companies.  Call us for more information: 727-341-0551.
