I have always had hearing loss, giving up hope that I would ever be able to hear out of my left ear. I saw an advertisement for hearing aids, and decided to investigate; never thinking anything would come of it. This was the best decision I could have made! Since receiving my hearing aid, my quality of life has improved dramatically. I no longer miss out on conversations, entertainment, and the activities of my children (both good and bad!). The employees at Desert Valley Audiology are all so friendly and knowledgeable! They made the whole experience so easy! Thank you Dr. Tim!
As a retired nurse and familiar with many medical personnel, I have to say Dr. Hunsaker was one of the best. He saw me when I had mail order hearing aids when no one else was willing to help me. If it was not for his help I would not have been able to wear these aids. I am grateful and you deserve a special thanks.
I am so pleased with my hearing aids and the thorough and professional treatment I received from Dr. Hunsaker. With his help and guidance, I selected the devices that work well for me and my lifestyle. My follow up care was excellent. He has a caring and dedicated staff and Angie is the best. I wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful team.
I am so pleased with my new hearing devices. I noticed I was having difficulty hearing in meetings and in my job, that’s a problem! Dr. Tim helped me to select the best product to address my hearing loss. Their follow-up care is great. I won’t hesitate one bit to recommend them to others. Thanks to a great team!
Dr. Hunsaker & his staff are very knowledgeable and helpful in fitting me for hearing aids. Also, his front desk customer service is excellent in scheduling appointments for me in both the Henderson and Las Vegas locations. Even being able to work me in when I didn’t have a appointment. I have had my hearing aids a little over a month. I can’t give enough praise and thanks for their service, quality, pricing.

AUDITORY BRAINSTEM RESPONSE
Auditory Brainstem Response
The auditory brainstem response measures your brain’s ability to process sound, as well as the health of your neural pathways. During this test, you will be asked to sit quietly, while electrodes are placed on your head and near your ears. Your specialist will play a series of sounds and record your brain activity. ABR is a test designed to measure the integrity of the auditory nerve. This is an ideal test for infants and difficult to test patients as it does not require a patient response. Testing consists of measuring electrical responses from the brainstem in response to a presented sound. Through the results we are able to estimate hearing thresholds.
OAE (Otoacoustic emissions)
Otoacoustic emission tests outer hair cell function of the cochlea. Similar to ABR this is an ideal test for infants as it too does not require patient response to obtain results. It is also a valuable test in monitoring hearing damage from noise or ototoxic drugs.
MIDDLE EAR ASSESSMENTS
Middle Ear Assessments:
Ear infections are a common issue experienced by many children and adults. Immitance testing helps in the identification and management of any middle ear pathology.
Hearing Aids for Children
Our practice works with the leading hearing aid manufacturers to provide the best hearing aids for infants and children with hearing loss. We understand that a hearing aid for your child not only needs to be technologically advanced, but also reliable, affordable and tamper-proof. Hearing aids for babies and children are designed to help them in the environments that matter most to them for their language development. Whether it is hearing their mothers voice as a baby, exploring their environment as a toddler, or focusing on their teachers voice as a young child – we have the right hearing aid for them.
