Hearing

The Audiology Clinic at Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center offers expert hearing care and services to adult and pediatric patients. Our audiologists provide hearing evaluations, hearing and communication interventions, and hearing loss prevention strategies. 

Hearing Care: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • Collaborative, personalized care: We work closely with your primary care provider, otolaryngologist and other specialists in our local and regional community to provide comprehensive care and treatment. Together, our audiologists assess your condition and create a personalized plan that will improve your quality of life. 
  • Experience and expertise: Our team is certified and highly specialized in caring for the most complex hearing cases. Patients often come to us because of our extensive experience in hearing care, including thorough diagnosis, treatment and ongoing support. 
  • Walk-in services: We offer walk-in services for professional hearing aid cleaning, troubleshooting and supply pick up – without an appointment. However, if you need a hearing aid adjustment, you will need to make an appointment with your audiologist.
  • Ongoing support: We offer free living with hearing loss and tinnitus classes to teach you valuable tips and tactics for better listening. Class topics range from hearing aid technology to speechreading communication strategies and styles. To reserve a spot in class, call (615) 936-5000.
  • Community-based care: Our audiologists not only provide their expert care to you, but also to the Middle Tennessee community at local agencies, venues, fairs and festivals, including Bonnaroo and the CMA Music Festival.
