At Columbia Basin Hearing Center, we believe that our job isn’t finished until our patients’ lives are improved. Our staff, including Doctors of Audiology, have a combined 36 years of experience in bringing you the best possible hearing care using only the highest level of hearing technology.

48 million Americans—or nearly one in five, age 12 and older—experience hearing loss severe enough to hinder communication.
