Idaho Elks Hearing and Balance Center: Eagle

Your ears affect more than your hearing and balance—they affect your quality of life. At Idaho Elks Hearing and Balance, we’re here to help. As the region's most comprehensive audiology and vestibular rehabilitation provider, we care for adults and children with services such as tinnitus testing and treatment, hearing tests, cochlear implants, hearing aid evaluation, central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) testing and treatment, and rehabilitation and support groups. We also offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment of speech and language delays and disorders resulting from hearing impairment. We'll educate and train parents, and consult with schools, when appropriate.

Our balance and vestibular services include evaluations and treatment for conditions such as vertigo, light-headed dizziness, and motion sensitivity; as well as assessment and treatment for people who have disequilibrium, a history of falls, or have a fear of falling. This may include patients recovering from a stroke, joint replacement, or those with Parkinson’s disease.
