Welcome to ACL Hearing & Balance

At ACL Hearing and Balance™ our mission is to provide quality and compassionate care in order to improve hearing and balance and quality of life. ACL Hearing and Balance was established in 1989. Our professionals have 30 years of combined experience serving the Baton Rouge community.

Our goals are to:

  • Help people access information about hearing disorders.
  • Identify individuals with hearing loss.
  • Provide those with hearing difficulties options to help with their communication needs.

The field of audiology is very dynamic. Hearing aid technology has become more innovative. Our role as audiologist requires us to educate clients about their options so they can make informed decisions. A hearing aid puchase is more than buying an instrument. You are purchasing a service. Our goal is to see that you receive that service in a timely and professional manner.
