Welcome to Parr's Pro Hearing Services!

Dr. Susan Parr is a Board-Certified Doctor of Audiology with over 30 years of extensive clinical experience diagnosing and treating hearing, tinnitus, and balance problems. Her team consists of Dr. Anna Bixler, also a Board-Certified Doctor of Audiology, and herself, Dr. Susan Parr. They offer the most thorough audiological evaluations using evidence-based procedures and advanced state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment.

Their patient-centered approach allows sufficient time during the patient’s appointment to conduct a complete evaluation in a relaxed, friendly environment with time to ask questions. Dr. Parr and Dr. Bixler have vast experience fitting hearing aids by using evidence-based procedures, validation, and real ear verification to ensure that patients receive their best possible hearing and understanding.

Parr’s Pro Hearing Services accepts most insurance for hearing evaluations and hearing aid benefits. Both Doctors of Audiology are on staff at UPMC, and Dr. Parr is on staff at Fulton County Medical Center.

All patients receive a detailed explanation of all their test results and how best to proceed with their care. The evaluation examines the outer ear, middle ear, outer hair cells, inner ear, and the brain’s ability to hear and process words. Patients will learn the impact on their life from the sounds that they are not hearing. A thorough, written report will be sent to the referring physician and other physicians of the patient’s choice that will explain the results of all tests and any medical issues discovered in the process.

If needed, Dr. Parr or Dr. Bixler will help the patient determine which hearing aid manufacturer and technology best fits the patient’s individual hearing loss, lifestyle, and ability to understand words they have been missing due to hearing loss.

Hearing is a cognitive process – it happens in the brain. The brain can’t process what the brain can’t hear. Hearing loss affects the brain’s ability to hear specific vowels and consonants of words relative to each person’s individual loss of frequencies. Appropriately selected hearing aids that are fit and programmed properly will allow the patient to hear the sounds they are missing, and they will finally be part of the conversation again!

Parrs Pro Hearing offers all technology levels and sizes of hearing aids from Invisible-In-the-Canal (IIC) hearing aids to small Behind-the-Ear (RIC) hearing aids. We carry hearing aids from all major hearing aid manufacturers, because no single hearing aid manufacturer can best fit every hearing loss and lifestyle.

If balance issues are the problem, Parrs Pro Hearing has the most advanced, diagnostic equipment to evaluate dizziness, and our doctors have the expertise to interpret the results. Dr. Parr is affiliated with the American Institute of Balance and is certified in vestibular rehabilitation.

Children with a history of ear infections or academic problems can be evaluated for auditory processing disorders. Based on the evaluation and diagnosis, a treatment plan will be determined.
