Heavily dependent on slave labor in the early days of plantation life along the Colorado River, the economy of Matagorda County and Bay City, its county seat, was devastated after Lincoln freed the slaves, only growing back into prominence after the railroad came to town and oil and sulfur provided a major boost in the early 20th century.
The arrival of the $1.8-billion Tenaris seamless-pipe mill, which makes drill pipe and casing for the oil-drilling industry, gave the Bay City economy a big boost in 2017, but our community still enjoys a quiet, laid back atmosphere more than an hour away from Houston’s urban sprawl. Exploring the bounty nature has to offer at Riverside and Tulle Parks as well as all along the Colorado River is more our pace.
However, when you need help with hearing better, you want an industry-leading audiologist focused on your long-term hearing health, but you also want someone who understands your personal circumstances in a laid back atmosphere you won’t find in the big city. That’s exactly what Bay City patients have enjoyed at our Wharton clinic since we opened our doors.
At Clarity Hearing, Dr. Scott Marquardt and our leading team of audiology specialists focus our efforts on the communities we serve, bringing the most advanced technology available in the industry, accurate hearing assessments, tinnitus, balance, and other forms of personalized care to rural communities. We enjoy providing the little things, such as earwax removal, hearing aid repair, and tele-audiology, which make a measurable difference in Wharton and nearby communities like Bay City and El Campo.

Jaime Hawkins is wonderful! When she said I was an excellent candidate for hearing aids, I was surprised. I’ll never forget when she fit me with my first pair of Resound hearing aids, I cried! What a difference they’ve made for my life! Thank you so much Jaime!
Super nice staff and audiologist. I was given all the info and results of my hearing test at the end of my appointment. They make you feel at ease with a very welcoming atmosphere. A very good experience for something I was a bit nervous about.
Took their time to explain options; did not push higher end hearing aids but made clear the differences in models. Also explained a lot about hearing problems in general -- helpful for someone getting hearing aids for the first time. I highly recommend this company.

Small, Lightweight Hearing Aids That Go Unnoticed
Thanks to micro-digital technology, those old hearing aid stigmas are a thing of the past. Just like it changed cell phones into the powerful smartphones we use today, it also transformed the bulky, frustrating hearing aids your parents and grandparents wore into smaller, lighter weight, and far more powerful devices, eliminating the outdated stigmas associated with hearing aids.
Features of modern hearing aid technology include rechargeable batteries, noise reduction/cancellation, remote programming capabilities, and the capacity to stream music, audio, and phone calls directly into your hearing aids from your smartphone, television, or PC, enhancing your hearing experience.
This highly advanced technology not only amplifies your hearing, but it also has the potential to amplify your life. Better yet, the hearing aid specialists at Clarity Hearing will help you choose from a wide range of models from the most renowned hearing aid manufacturers from all over the world.
Treatment for Dizziness, Vertigo, and Balance Disorders
Dizziness, vertigo, and difficulty remaining steady on your feet tend to decrease your confidence when it comes to leaving the house in order to go about your daily living tasks. Issues related to balance are often connected to problems in the inner ear, causing concern for your Clarity Hearing audiologists.
Your vestibular system, located within your inner ear, is a major part of the sensory system designed to provide your body with the information it needs to make adjustments and keep you upright. As audiologists, it’s our job to figure out what’s going on and provide you with treatment options to help you keep your balance.
If you or a loved one is struggling with dizziness, vertigo, or balance disorders, it is crucial that you contact an audiologist for balance testing and treatment in order to limit the risk of a critical injury related to a fall.
Are Your Hearing Aids Covered by Your Insurance?
Each insurance company and each package offers different levels of care and coverage, which adds to the confusion when it comes time to figure out if your hearing aids or hearing care is covered by your insurance.
We don’t want anyone who is experiencing a hearing loss to put off getting the help they need from professional hearing care or from advanced technology hearing aids, but we also understand how discouraging it is to not be able to finance your treatment or determine if you’ll get any help from your insurance.
Clarity Hearing partners with all the major insurance companies, including BCBS, Humana, Aetna, TriCare, Cigna, and Medicare, and we have an insurance specialist on our team to help find out what your insurance covers and how much benefit you can expect to receive.
