About the institute and ATSU audiology

The AFA Balance & Hearing Institute located in Mesa, Arizona, officially opened its doors in January 2013. The AFA Balance & Hearing Institute was made possible by a generous startup donation from the Audiology Foundation of America (AFA) and other supporting partners. Unlike most private practice or retail franchises, the AFA facility is part of a university teaching institution, the Arizona School of Health Sciences at A.T. Still University.

The AFA Institute offers a full range of hearing and balance care for patients of all ages. In fact, our knowledge and experience enables us to offer more services to you than many other facilities.
