About Us

Independently owned, Independently operated

What does that mean to you?

As your local, professional audiology practice, Placid Audiology carries a variety of hearing aid makes and models from leading manufacturers, from entry level to high-end technology. All of the hearing instruments from Placid Audiology are professionally fit by a licensed Doctor of Audiology, have manufacturer warranties for repair and loss and damage, and local service.

We specialize in finding the right hearing aid for your hearing needs, lifestyle, AND budget. Hearing aids may be an appropriate solution for your hearing difficulties, but only after comprehensive diagnostic testing to rule out other medical conditions, can that be determined. Contact us to explore your options. Hearing aids may not be the only option.

We accept most major insurances as well as offer convenient payment options.


Most insurance plans have at least some coverage for diagnostic services. Some insurance plans also offer a hearing aid benefit. We will help you navigate the often confusing world of health insurance.

Credit Cards

Placid Audiology accepts cash, check, MasterCard, and Visa for our products and services.


Placid Audiology offers financing options through All Well and Care Credit

Our Staff

Dr. Karen Wolff received her AuD (Doctor of Audiology) degree from Arizona School of Health Sciences in 2003. Prior to that she received her Masters Degree in Audiology from Hunter College. Originally from Massachusetts, Dr. Wolff began her audiology career working in a variety of medical and clinical settings in Maine and Vermont. In 1992 she moved to Saranac Lake and was employed at Adirondack Audiology Associates, where she enjoyed working with patients in the Malone, Potsdam, Tupper Lake, and Saranac Lake offices. Educating people about hearing protection and hearing loss, and helping patients overcome their difficulties with hearing or tinnitus has always been her passion. In 2016, with the support of her husband and 3 children, Placid Audiology became a reality. When Dr. Wolff is not at her beautiful office in Lake Placid, she enjoys spending time with her family in New York and Cape Cod, and helping with the family hobby of making maple syrup every spring. She volunteers her time on the boards of both Saranac Lake Young Arts Association and Saranac Lake Voluntary Health Association. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and a member of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology. She completes more than the required hours of continuing education in her field each year, and is always seeking new information that may help her patients.
