Hearing loss is the third most common health concern behind diabetes and heart disease. Approximately 36 million Americans suffer from a either conductive, nerve, or mixed hearing loss, more than half of whom are younger than the age of 65.
Imagine for a moment we're building a home: we wouldn't purchase the materials and defer the craftsman. So when considering hearing technologies, why would you not want 3 doctors of audiology guiding you every step of the way, building the perfect solution to your needs? We don't sell hearing aids, we treat your hearing loss. Period.
Have a question? We have an answer. Have a question that was not previously answered? Submit your inquiry via our FAQ's page and we'll provide a personalized response. We recognize that you have a choice when it comes to your hearing healthcare provider. We want you to be as relaxed and informed as possible about our practice.
Audiology Services of West Virginia is an all-inclusive hearing and balance healthcare clinic specializing in medically-oriented diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss and tinnitus. Our philosophy is that hearing healthcare can affect an individual’s overall quality-of-life and should be monitored as part of an annual health physical. When a hearing problem is identified, our Doctors of Audiology will evaluate many aspects of our patient’s lifestyle and needs to help him or her select from a variety of hearing instruments and assistive listening devices.
Hearing aids are a common form of treatment for most types of hearing loss. However, hearing instruments are not always the answer. Our Doctors of Audiology have experience working with other management options such as cochlear implants, bone-anchored devices, and sound therapy options for tinnitus. Knowing appropriate communication strategies is a key to success when using any hearing instrument or device. Our audiologists have a background in aural rehabilitation and auditory-verbal therapy techniques, which ensures that our patients are equipped with all the tools necessary to take advantage of the best hearing experience possible.
We feel that is very important to select a healthcare provider with whom you feel comfortable and provides the best care. Audiology Services of West Virginia has three Doctors of Audiology who are equally qualified to give their patients the most comprehensive hearing and balance healthcare. Our Doctors of Audiology have experience in all specialty areas of audiology and have all completed their doctoral training in major medical centers. We are committed to providing the most compassionate and complete hearing healthcare in the Mid-Ohio Valley!
At Audiology Services of West Virginia, we offer a variety of payment options for your convenience. Thank you for being a valued patient.
(Please note that a 3.5% convenience fee will be added to any payment made by debit/credit card.)

Personal Sound Amplifiers
BRAGI AND THE DASH PRO TAILORED BY STARKEY
What exactly is a hearable?
You may have heard the term “wearable” in relation to wireless technology that you wear (e.g. Smart watch). A hearable is similar, but can offer both an enhanced listening experience (since it’s worn in your ear) and biometric data for heart-rate monitoring, performance tracking, etc.
LISTEN. TRACK. COMMUNICATE.
The Dash Pro is a wireless smart earphone that combines three essential features in one product
- Listen: A one-touch standalone music player
- Track: A live sports assistant
- Communicate: A smart phone companion
At Audiology Services of West Virginia we realize that not everyone needs or is ready for traditional hearing aid amplification. In some cases minor communication challenges may require just a little help from a personal sound amplifier. Schedule an appointment today to review amplifier or hearable options that may be best for you!
“Dr. Carlee and her staff are courteous and very helpful. Dr. Carlee explained all of my options and thoroughly demonstrated the use and maintenance of my new hearing aids. They REALLY make a difference!”
“Because of my severe hearing loss I was able to receive my hearing aids through WV Rehabilitation Services at no charge. I saw Drs. Squires’ ad on TV and because they were young I felt [they were] more up to date with new technology. From my very first visit I was treated so warmly by Dr. Carlee and her staff...
“Both Dr. Carlee and Dr. Michael Squires were professional yet very pleasant to me as their patient. They answered questions in an every-day, lay-person’s language. I am very pleased with both Drs. and would recommend them, their hearing aids, and the manner I was tested to anyone who would need to see an audiologist. Thank you both for your competent way of dealing with a “happy patient!”
“[They are] very good and informative. [I] loved that you could try [hearing aids] for a week!”
“Two of the best young people I’ve met in a long time! Real doctors, not hearing aid salespeople. They really care. [I am] glad they are here to help us hear! I highly recommend them!”
“Over the past few years my hearing has been getting progressively worse, especially in the high frequency ranges. In 2011, I tried out hearing aids of the same brand, Widex, [with a different provider] but I returned them after 30 days. In 2015, I read [a] news article about...
“Hearing loss is extremely frustrating. Anyone suffering a loss of hearing needs a good audiologist who can make a big difference in your ability to hear well. Carlee and Michael have made a commitment to practice audiology in this area. They are young, well educated, and they know the newest technologies...
I purchased hearing aids through Audiology Services of WV and worked with Carlee Cox Squires, AuD. My experience has been very positive. The staff has been pleasant, courteous, and informative. They were patient in working with me [and] allowing me two trial runs with hearing aids before my final purchase. Hearing aids take some time for adjustment, but with time they become beneficial. I highly recommend Audiology Services because of the professionalism they exhibit and the ability to work with patients with hearing loss.
