Adult Audiology Services
We treat adults with a range of hearing loss and hearing needs, providing outstanding care to patients and their families in a comfortable, private environment. Audiological consultations, analysis and treatment are highly individualized to meet your needs.
During your examination you will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how and if hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids can be wirelessly connected to devices such as televisions, cell phones, FM systems, GPS systems, and PDAs, with the use of Bluetooth technology. Bluetooth technology works similarly to wireless Internet, where sounds are sent through an invisible electronic signal.
Cell Phone Accessories
Custom earmolds for cell phone headrests, Bluetooth compatible device, hands-free and more.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, we will discuss with you whether you are a candidate, and if so we will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. We may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. We can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
Evaluation for Auditory Processing Disorders (APD)
APD evaluations are most commonly performed for school-age children, although many adults are also tested. A person with suspected APD has normal hearing, but does not seem to hear well or understand what is heard. Hearing and understanding may be inconsistent. Testing for APD consists of a hearing test and several tasks where words or sentences must be repeated in different listening conditions.
