Hearing Care and Hearing Aid Services
The initial hearing evaluation will focus on identifying your specific needs so together we can determine the best treatment options. We typically allow a full hour for this appointment so we can discuss your concerns before and after testing. We will review your medical history including your medications, your exposure to noise or music, your family history, and your current lifestyle. Your ears will be checked for cerumen (wax) buildup, and minor blockages can be cleared by the audiologist. Patients with significant wax impactions will be referred to a physician for ear cleaning before testing can be completed.
Hearing Aid Consultation
Once we determine that no medical treatment is indicated to improve your hearing or the health of your ears, we can discuss the various styles of hearing aids available
Hearing Aid Fittings
Fitting hearing aids takes time to ensure the settings are tailored specifically to each patient’s needs. We typically allow 1 ½ hours for this appointment.
Hearing Aid Repairs
We offer minor in-office repairs and maintenance such as tubing changes, replacing domes, wax guards, and clearing debris from microphones
Hearing Aid Maintenance
We encourage our patients to come in every four to six months for us to clean and check their hearing aids.
Many patients experience tinnitus, typically ringing or buzzing sounds in the ears or in the head. While most patients can ignore it, some find it very distressing and want to try all options to reduce or eliminate it.
