Wyoming Otolaryngology, founded in 1967, is one of the oldest medical practices in the state of Wyoming. Initially founded by Dr. Kent Christensen, Dr. Joseph Vigneri joined the practice in 1974. In that same year the practice became the first medical partnership in Central Wyoming and the next year became the first medical corporation. Dr. Eugene Podrazik arrived in 2001 at the retirement of Dr. Christensen, and Dr. Cope Norcross joined the practice in 2006. Dr. Cheryl Drost joined to provide audiology and hearing care services in 2009.
Wyoming Otolaryngology continues to honor our heritage of advanced medical and surgical care to this day.
Wyoming Otolaryngology is a full-service Ear Nose and Throat clinic featuring a wide range of hearing health services for people of all ages, performed by highly-qualified professionals. We offer complete hearing evaluations and hearing aids for every lifestyle and budget. We constantly review available technology to offer our patients the latest solutions.
Our audiologist will work with you to choose the instruments that best fit your lifestyle and hearing needs.
Styles of Hearing Instruments
There are basically two styles of hearing instruments. One style is custom molded and fits in-the-ear (ITE) and the other one fits behind-the-ear (BTE). The degree of hearing loss, appropriate power, lifestyle requirements, manual dexterity, cost factors, and cosmetic concerns are some of the many factors that will be discussed to help determine the appropriate style.
Digital Hearing Instrument Technology
The term “digital” is used to refer to hearing instruments as 100% digital or a “complete computer”. This computer calculates information from the listening environment and manipulates the sound to provide comfort in a background of noise, clarity, and protection from diffused and background noise.
Assistive Listening Devices
For patients who need help beyond their hearing instruments, or for those who aren’t quite ready to wear hearing instruments fulltime, we also offer a variety of Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) you may try in the office, including Bluetooth, Loop Systems and TV Ears.
