The Hearing Clinic was established in July of 1982 by Dr. Craig A. Foss and has been proudly serving Central Nebraska for over 30 years. Our goal at The Hearing Clinic is to provide you the best possible hearing care, based upon your individual needs. Our Doctors of Audiology, Craig A. Foss and Kimberly J. Andresen, provide a broad array of services related to evaluation, rehabilitation and prevention of hearing impairment including specialized diagnostic testing for all ages. The results of all tests performed will be reviewed with you by the Doctor of Audiology. If you are a candidate for hearing aids, they will advise you of all your options including cost, style, size and technology. We take pride in offering the most current hearing aid technology and services available. We offer a risk-free 30-day adjustment period to all of our patients to ensure they are getting the hearing aids that are right for them. Complimentary to our full-line of hearing aids we carry many hearing aid accessories, batteries, assistive listening devices, musician plugs, and noise & water protection plugs. We also offer repair and service on any hearing aids.
Choosing a hearing professional is one of the most important decisions a person can make. Your local university trained Doctor of Audiology is the healthcare professional who is credentialed to provide a variety of hearing healthcare services.

Q: How often should you get your hearing tested?
A: Hearing loss is very gradual and hearing technology will benefit the greatest when fitted earlier instead of waiting until "its bad enough".
Q: What are the signs of hearing loss?
A: Fullness in the ears, tinnitus, hearing what the person said but not
understanding everything spoken, playing the TV louder than others would do.
Q: How can I protect my hearing?
A: Use protection when using power tools, firearms, lawn mowers, & hair dryers. Also, keep louder music turned down & limit to less than 1 hour.
Q: How do you test hearing of infants and small children?
A: Non-invasive means. Soft tips placed in the ear & electrode sensors placed on the forehead & behind the ears read out cochlear & auditory nerve response.
Q: How do you test people with balance problems?
A: Infrared goggles record eye movement as the eyes move with visual targets & the head & body are moved in specific positions to test central nervous system & inner ear function.
