Welcome to Hearing Care Austin, a division of Capital Otolaryngology
Hearing Care Austin offers the full range of otological and audiological services to the Greater Austin area. Our otolaryngologist, Dr. Raymond J. Brown, has advanced otology training and a passion for working with patients of all ages suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders.
Dr. Brown and our doctor of audiology, Margaux Colburn AuD, work together as a team to diagnose and treat patients with hearing concerns. We provide comprehensive evaluations on hearing and balance disorders, and we dispense and fit the full range of hearing aids, from entry level to the most advanced state-of-the-art devices.
If the severity of hearing loss precludes a patient from utilizing hearing aids, we also provide cochlear implants and osseo-integrated/bone-anchored devices. Dr. Brown performs the implantation surgery, and our audiologist guides patients through the process of learning to hear better by mapping the cochlear implant or programming the osseo-integrated device.
Donate a Hearing Aid!
Our practice now accepts hearing aid donations. SERTOMA Club’s SHARP program provides refurbished hearing aids for individuals in need. Hearing aids of any type or age are welcome.
Hearing Care Austin is also a dispensing site for Alison’s Hope for Hearing, a charitable organization that provides new hearing aids for qualifying patients at a reduced cost.

We Have Your Hearing Needs Covered
Capital ENT and Sinus Center has all of your hearing needs covered. From newborns that fail a hearing screening to geriatric patients needing hearing aids, we have all the services you require in one location.
Our exceptional hearing care team includes a fellowship-trained otologist, and two audiologists with nearly 40 years of experience between them. Our Doctors and audiologists work together to provide a comprehensive medical and audiological evaluation to determine the cause of your hearing loss.
Do You Need An Advanced Microscopic Evaluation?
Our providers will perform an advanced microscopic evaluation of the ear canal, eardrum, and middle ear cavity. Any wax that blocks the canal can be painlessly removed. Detailed imaging using our in-office CT scanner can provide high-resolution images of the middle ear cavity to evaluate for causes of hearing loss. In addition, our audiologists conduct a wide variety of diagnostic tests to evaluate hearing in infants, children, adults, and special needs populations.

Left untreated, hearing loss can cause communication problems leading to feelings of isolation and frustration. This does not have to be the case for you or your loved ones. At Capital ENT and Sinus Center, we offer a broad selection of hearing aids that can dramatically improve your quality of life.
Today’s hearing instruments are more technologically advanced than ever. Modern hearing aids are using faster digital processing for programming and utilizing open-style fittings that don’t overly occlude or block the ear canal. As a result, patients can achieve higher satisfaction rates with the use of hearing aids. Hearing aids now also feature many wireless options via Bluetooth technology, which can enable hands-free communication over a cell phone, an example of which is the world’s first internet-ready hearing aid, the Oticon Opn™.
By being more technologically advanced than ever, modern hearing aids deliver excellent sound quality, allowing you to hear better effortlessly and greatly improving your ability to follow conversations in the presence of background noise. All of this is accomplished via devices that provide a comfortable, cosmetically appealing fit. After performing in-depth testing, our audiologists will take the time to find a customized solution based upon your individual lifestyle that is tailored to your specific challenges and needs.
Our Hearing Aid Services Include
On average, the length of time that passes between when a person realizes they have a hearing loss to the time they actually do something about it is seven years.

We are also a designated battery recycling location where you can drop off used hearing aid batteries for eco-friendly recycling.
