About Us

Established in 2011, Olympia’s Complete Hearing & Balance (formerly Ascent Audiology & Hearing) is the only full scope audiology clinic in the South Sound area.  Our owner, Dr. Alison Vega, started this practice with a vision to provide comprehensive hearing and balance healthcare in our community.  While earning her doctorate in audiology, Dr. Vega learned about all the different ways that hearing and balance issues can affect a person’s life.  Helping her patients understand their underlying problem and receiving the right treatment has been her passion since the beginning.  She began her career in the early 2000s and wanted to own a private practice that truly provided services within the full scope of audiology. As the business has grown over 10 years, Dr. Vega has added associate doctors of audiology in order to expand the practice services and capacity for patient care.  Having a team of doctors allows us to collaborate and ensure that patients receive the highest level of hearing and balance healthcare.  On a long-term scale, Dr. Vega’s dream is to continue to grow the practice so that any issue with hearing or balance can be assessed and treated at Ascent Audiology & Hearing.

We are your hearing and balance experts. We continue to invest in state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment that is not available at any other audiology clinic in Olympia.  Our team is committed to constant professional education so that we stay knowledgeable about treatment procedures and new techniques.  We have also partnered with several internationally recognized companies and associations so that we may bring a gold standard of care to the South Sound region; We provide services otherwise only found in Seattle or Portland.

The mission of Complete Hearing & Balance is to provide a collaborative approach to hearing and balance healthcare. We are dedicated to helping our patients achieve their communication and life goals by providing comprehensive evaluations, differential diagnosis, patient education, and treatment with best practices.
