Our Services


Hearing Tests

We provide hearing tests in Point Loma, Coronado, and Rancho Bernardo, CA. If you have any concerns about your hearing, we strongly encourage you to schedule a hearing evaluation. We provide hearing exams for patients ages 4 and up. During the evaluation, we will perform a series of tests, including:

  • Diagnostic evaluations
  • Otoscopic examination
  • Speech and word recognition testing
  • Speech in noise testing
  • Middle ear analysis


Aural Rehabilitation

We provide counseling for patients, friends, or family on how to understand hearing aids and their benefits. We also provide counseling on good communication strategies, how to be strategic in noisy environments, and how to get the most out of your hearing aids. Our hearing specialists use LACE, a computer training to help the brain improve auditory memory to help you better adjust to hearing sounds around you.


Tinnitus Management

If you hear a buzzing, humming, ringing, or whistling sound in your ears, you are not alone. Tinnitus affects millions of people. When you visit our hearing clinic, we can perform a tinnitus test which includes:

  • Assessing the impact of tinnitus on daily life using a questionnaire
  • Pitch matching
  • Loudness level testing
If tinnitus is bothering you, we offer tinnitus treatments such as hearing aids and tinnitus therapy, that can help stop ringing in the ears.


Balance Services

Balance issues are common, and our audiologists are dizziness and balance disorder experts. Chronic dizziness, vertigo, or loss of balance can be debilitating and can negatively affect your quality of life. At Peninsula Hearing & Balance Center, we offer vestibular testing to determine if dizziness or balance issues are present. We offer the following testing for balance disorders.

  • Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR): Identifies abnormalities of the auditory neural pathways through the level of the brainstem such as an acoustic neuroma.
  • Videonystagmography Testing (VNG): Assists our specialists in determining if the patient’s dizziness is caused by inner ear dysfunction, BPPV, or central pathology.

Cerumen Management

Cerumen (earwax) can build-up inside your ears, causing discomfort and muffled hearing. If you have clogged ears due to earwax, we offer professional ear cleaning services.

  1. Curette: a tool to manually remove cerumen
  2. Irrigation: the use of water to flush out cerumen
  3. Microsuction: use of a small vacuum to remove cerumen


Hearing Aid Services

When you receive hearing aids from Peninsula Hearing & Balance Center, you’ll receive ongoing support and services to keep your devices performing their best. We offer the following services for hearing aids:

  • Hearing Aid Evaluations
  • Hearing Aid Repairs
  • Hearing Aid Cleaning
  • Real Ear Analysis

Hearing Protection

Loud noise exposure is one of the most common causes of hearing loss in people of all ages. It’s important to be proactive by protecting your hearing and wearing custom earplugs or earmolds. We can make custom fit earplugs and earmolds for optimal hearing protection at any of our offices. We can create:

  • Custom earmolds for behind-the-ear hearing aids
  • Custom swim earmolds
  • Musician plugs (ER-9, ER-15, ER-25)
  • Pilot earphones
  • Noise protection plugs, some specifically designed for hunters and shooters
  • iPod earplugs
  • Custom music earphones (different from musician plugs)
We offer the best selection of custom earplugs for musicians in San Diego.
