Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
Find Everything You Need for Better Hearing
We’re here to do one thing—to help you and your loved ones hear better and get more out of life. From the staff we hire, our knowledge and skills, our hearing tests, the brands we select and expertly fit, every decision we make focuses on our ultimate goal —your happiness and improved quality of life.
We offer a wide range of solutions because there is no such thing as “one size fits all.” We chose our slogan (Hearing is personal…) because just as each person’s hearing loss is different so is each individual’s listening needs and preferences. What works for your neighbor, friend or family member may not be appropriate for you.
Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluations
During your examination, we test your hearing using tones, word recognition in quiet and speech discrimination in background noise. The results help us to diagnose your degree of hearing loss, establish your ability to understand speech and determine how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
Custom Earmolds & Earplugs
In addition to custom earmolds for hearing aids, we provide custom noise protection and swim plugs. Whether for musicians, recreational use while hunting, farming, or using power tools, or swim plugs for protection against water, we ensure a comfortable fit uniquely designed specifically for your ears.
After fitting your hearing aids to your complete satisfaction, we continue to work together to fine-tune, ensure maintenance, monitor progression of your hearing loss and make changes to your hearing aids as your lifestyle and/or hearing loss changes. Our follow-up care focuses on your overall healthcare needs, as well as satisfaction with sound quality and extending the life of your hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you receive the hearing aids you selected. We calibrate and program the hearing aids based on a prescription unique to your hearing loss. We ask you to share your subjective feedback regarding sound quality and we make initial adjustments to ensure your satisfaction.
Hearing Aid Repairs
We provide hearing aid repairs for all makes and models, regardless of where you purchased. We offer in-office repairs when possible on most makes/models. If your device is not sounding appropriate or working properly, some minor hearing aid repairs may be possible within our office. We will help determine what kind of repair is necessary. If we cannot troubleshoot, you may opt to have us send your hearing aid(s) to the manufacturer for repair.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During your hearing aid evaluation, we focus on your lifestyle and recommend hearing aid technology based on the information you provide. We discuss different styles, colors, technology levels, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. Depending on the style of hearing aid chosen, we may take impressions of your ears.
Live Speech Mapping
Live Speech Mapping is a verification procedure to further customize and validate your hearing aid settings. Taking into account the anatomy of your ear canal, we obtain probe microphone measurements while wearing your hearing aids. You listen to real speech stimuli at various input levels to immediately see and understand the benefits of your hearing aids.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus is the medical term for the sensation of sound in your ears when no external sound is present. In most cases, tinnitus is subjective and widely varies from person to person. Using the case history you provide regarding your symptoms, we determine a customized treatment plan for your unique tinnitus needs.
