Hearing Services for All Ages

Hearing is how we connect to the world around us. With hearing loss, we can experience difficulty communicating with the people we love and staying involved in our favorite activities.

At Racker Audiology Clinic, we want to give people back these great moments and experiences. We offer a complete range of hearing services to diagnose your hearing loss and determine the best treatment plan for you. We care about your hearing health and we will do whatever we can to help you. Everything we do blends compassion with practical medical expertise.

Hearing Evaluation at Racker

Our Services

  • Hearing evaluations for diagnosing hearing loss: We offer comprehensive hearing evaluations that allow us to understand your hearing loss in detail. Patients who aren't sure they want hearing aids yet may choose to get evaluated so they can be educated and make decisions for their future.
  • Hearing aid recommendations, sales, and fittings: We carry hearing aids from leading hearing aid manufacturers. We recommend hearing aids based on your individual needs, always give you options to choose between, and expertly program your hearing aids to address your specific hearing needs.
  • Repairs, adjustments, and cleanings of hearing instruments: We provide services to help you maintain your hearing aids so that they can serve you well for years to come.
  • Noise reduction earplugs: We can take custom molds of your ears and use those to create custom-fit earplugs, swim plugs and in-ear monitors for musicians.
  • Pediatric audiology: We're equipped to give hearing tests to all our young patients, from newborns to teenagers. We also fit hearing aids for pediatric patients aged 5 and up. (For younger patients, we refer them to a pediatric specialist.)
  • Medicaid care: We are the only audiology clinic in Ithaca that is approved to accept Medicaid.
  • Patients with special needs: The Racker Center is dedicated to helping patients of all abilities.
