About Us

Our History

The House Institute has a history of being the preeminent center for the treatment of hearing health care for more than 60 years. Named for the groundbreaking work of founder Howard P. House, M.D., The House Institute Hearing Health Centers serve the communities of greater Los Angeles and Orange County with clinical locations and hearing aid dispensaries in Bakersfield, Encino and Santa Monica.

The Los Angeles-based team’s audiological staff works in close conjunction with physicians to provide the most advanced audiometric evaluations and treatment options to ensure that patients receive the best treatment possible.

The House Institute also includes a 501-(c)(3) private nonprofit branch, The House Institute Foundation (formerly House Ear Institute), that has pioneered innovative research in otology, neurotology and neurosurgery.
