Servicing the Carroll, Denison, and Surrounding Communities

About Us

Sondra in front of sign

As the only locally owned and operated Audiology and hearing aid business in Carroll, we are dedicated to treating our patient’s hearing loss not only because we believe in what we do, but also because our patients are also our neighbors.

At Adaptive Audiology Solutions, we make it a priority to use a patient-centered approach using the most technologically advanced techniques and tools available.  We understand that hearing loss affects everyone differently and therefore strive to offer a customized approach for each patient.  

By itemizing our services and products, we offer transparency in pricing unlike anything that has been offered locally.  When you purchase hearing aids at Adaptive Audiology Solutions, there are no hidden service or clinic fees.  This means that you are only paying for what you use and nothing more. For those that wish to buy an extended care plan, our Adaptive Audiology service package is the perfect product for you!
