Hearing & Balance Center

hearing loss, hearing disorders, provide hearing aidsHearing is one of our most vital senses, yet hearing difficulties are often unrecognized by the person involved.

The first step in the treatment of a hearing problem is a hearing evaluation by an Audiologist. An audiologist is a professional who diagnoses, treats and manages individuals with hearing loss, auditory processing and balance disorders.

Our Hearing & Balance Center is headed by Dr. Tim Skinner, Audiologist. Dr. Skinner serves as our Center Director as well as Chief Audiologist. He has extensive training, education and experience in diagnosing and treating hearing and balance disorders in adults and children.

Our Hearing & Balance Center is available to provide hearing evaluations and testing, balance testing and treatments, hearing aid evaluations and fittings, the Baha Procedure (For mixed hearing loss or single sided deafness), and other hearing/balance related services.

To make an appointment, call 850.863.8275.


Hearing Center

Our Hearing Center provides a host of hearing related assessments, treatment options and services for our patients. We use specialized equipment to obtain accurate results concerning hearing loss. These tests are typically conducted in sound-treated rooms with calibrated equipment. Most persons with hearing impairment can benefit from the use of hearing aids, and audiologists are the specialists who are educated concerning the latest applications of hearing aid technology.

We also offer a variety of hearing aids including Siemens and Sonic Innovations.


Balance Center

Dizziness or loss of balance is the second most common complaint heard in doctorís offices. The National Institute of Health statistics indicate that dizziness will occur in 70% of the nationís population at some time in their lives. Although very common, acute or chronic problems with equilibrium may indicate serious health risks and limit a personís everyday living. The first step to getting better is the proper diagnosis. 85% of all equilibrium problems can be directly related to an inner ear disorder. 90 Million Americans will experience dizziness or balance problems sometime in their lives.

Our Balance Center provides a variety of balance related assessments, treatment options and services for our patients.


Do You Have Conductive or Mixed Hearing Loss or Single Sided Deafness?

White-Wilson Medical Center is now offering the Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (Baha). The Baha uses the bodyís natural ability to conduct sound via bone.
