We offer a number of services to meet your hearing needs.
Our services tend to begin with a hearing evaluation. Although you may have had a hearing exam at another office, we will want to give a fresh look at the spectrum of sound you are able to hear. If you haven’t had a hearing evaluation before, they come in many shapes and sizes. The most common test we provide is to play a series of tones through headphones and to ask you which of these sounds you can hear. The hearing test should be no cause for anxiety! Although we will likely identify sounds that are beyond your audible range, the process is not painful whatsoever. It is often quite brief, as well. With this data in hand, we can generate your audiogram, a graph to depict which ranges of hearing you can hear at what volumes. This graph will be used to devise all of our other services, and we will explain the interpretation of our findings, as well. Along with a thorough consultation regarding your lifestyle and personal needs, the hearing test is the first step in our service and treatment plan along the path to healthy and clear hearing.
Assistive Listening Devices
The most common prescription for hearing loss is hearing aids. These units fit inside your ear and provide amplification to the sounds you encounter in the rest of life. However, these devices are not alone among the many technologies available for assistive listening. Personal amplifiers and a wide range of Bluetooth devices may suit your individual hearing needs. Other assistive listening devices integrate with your lifestyle to make hearing possible at crucial moments. For example, some people want to make sure they can hear the phone ring from anywhere in the house. We can coordinate the installation of assistive listening into your home to make sure a combination of sight and sound will alert you to an incoming call. Of course, this is only one example of the wide range of assistive listening technology available, and don’t hesitate to tell us the specific listening situation you desire.
Hearing Aid Repair
As mentioned, some of our service plans begin at our office. We may be the first hearing specialist you have ever seen, and we are glad to make the experience comfortable and easy for you. In other cases, you may have already received hearing aids from another office location or even another city or state. In this case, we are still happy to help you with repair and maintenance of your aids. We may be familiar with the model you use, in which case we can easily determine the malfunction. Even if we do not dispense the model of hearing aids you use, we can coordinate the plan for your repair. Some basic repairs can be done in person, but we may send off your aids to a certified repair specialist or the manufacturer if more advance repairs are necessary.
