About Us

At Atlantic Audiology Inc, we believe that each patient is unique and the impact of their hearing loss is unique as well.  Although two patients may have an identical hearing loss based on their audiogram, the impact on day-to-day function can vary significantly based on their lifestyle.  By developing a more personal relationship with our patients, we are better able to address their needs through individualized counseling and device selection.

  • We work with the industry’s leading manufacturers to find the solution that fits each patient best.
  • We have options at several different price points to fit any budget.
