A Personal Message from Dr. Heidi Sorrells
“Although our wonderful community continues to bounce-back time and time again following difficult times, our hearing doesn’t work in the same way.
With hearing loss often being irreversible, and continuing to worsen unless treated, it’s incredibly important to have your hearing comprehensively tested as soon as you experience any form of hearing challenges.
Given that you’re on this website, then it’s likely that either yourself or a loved one are concerned about your hearing and exploring who you should visit.
Acadian Hearing Services have been caring for the hearing health of Lake Charles since 1986 and have developed an industry-leading reputation for establishing the highest standards of audiological best practices in Louisiana and beyond.
With a team of three doctors of audiology and two hearing instrument specialists, you’re able to benefit from vast expertise which has seen our team help thousands of local people to hear the life that they love.
If you have any concerns about your hearing or balance, then my hand-on-heart promise to you is that we are here for you.”
Dr. Heidi J. Sorrells
Comprehensive Hearing Assessments
When Was Your Last Hearing Assessment?
With hearing loss impacting 1 in 8 people and being the third most common physical health condition in our country, it’s never been more important to have your hearing regularly tested.
The biggest challenge with hearing loss is that it often happens slowly and gradually, making it very difficult to self-diagnose. It’s a lot like ageing, you rarely notice the extra wrinkle and gray hair when you look into the mirror every morning, but only upon reflecting on old pictures do you see the differences.
A comprehensive hearing assessment allows our Doctors of Audiology to professionally test your hearing through an advanced multi-step process to not only determine if you have a hearing loss but more importantly, to learn why you have a hearing challenge.
Trusted by Medical Professionals and Physicians for Advanced Vestibular & Balance Testing
We take our balance for granted, that’s until we have problems with it. Sensory information about motion, equilibrium, and spatial orientation is provided by your vestibular apparatus that lives in each of your ears.
When the vestibular organs on both sides of your head are functioning properly, they send symmetrical impulses to the brain – but when they’re not, this can cause dizziness and balance problems.
As the trusted vestibular specialists that the physician and medical professionals of Lake Charles turn to for advanced testing and support, we’re here to help you from start-to-finish and allow you to regain control.

The nicest people
Hearing loss can slowly take away the most treasured parts of one’s life.
For Darren, he was most worried about “not hearing the grandkids.”
Prior to coming to Acadian Hearing Services, his main goal was “finding the best hearing aid.”
He describes the Acadian team as “the nicest people” and after having a comprehensive hearing assessment, he was fitted with hearing aids, which he describes simply as “amazing.
These people are true professionals
At first, Colleen’s hearing loss seemed funny, but soon it became clear it wasn’t a laughing matter.
Colleen recalls, “For several years, I misunderstood what my family were saying. It started out as a family joke. ‘You need hearing aids. Ha!’ It got progressively worse.”
Before visiting Acadian Hearing Services, Colleen didn’t have any worries. She says, “My desire to be able to HEAR properly obliterated my fears. I just knew that I needed help.”
For over 30 years Acadian Hearing has been my go-to-place for all my hearing needs.
Maria has worn hearing aids for over 40 years, but she recalls the moment she discovered she had a hearing loss quite vividly.
She says, “I was 26 years old and volunteering at the school my 6-year-old son was attending. The school nurse was testing hearing that day. By chance, she demonstrated the equipment by testing my hearing. I was shocked to learn I had hearing loss in both ears. I had no idea! I was so young.”
