Hearing Care and Hearing Aid Services
We specialize in hearing aid evaluations, fittings and follow-up care. We can help you hear better.
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 hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
Hearing Health History
We will begin by asking you about your hearing difficulties and other hearing related symptoms.
Otoscopic Ear Inspection
Checking your ear canals for impacted way or other issues, with a video otoscope.
Pure tone + Bone Conduction Testing
In a soundproof room you will listen to a series of tones through special headphones. This information will indicate the degree of hearing loss (mild, moderate, sever, etc.)
This is an important part of hearing evaluation process. Some people have more difficulty understanding speech than others, regardless of how loud the speech signal is. We will also check your speech understanding in noise as well as your sensitivity to loud sounds.

We will evaluate your current lifestyle and listening needs, focusing on the areas in which you would like to find improvement.
Based on your specific hearing loss, communication needs and budget, we will work with you to determine the best hearing solution for your unique situation.

After you have selected the best hearing aids for your situation, our hearing professional will program the hearing aids through the computer to fit your specific hearing loss.
We will also instruct you on the use and care of your new hearing aids, and providing counseling for you and family/friends on communication strategies and hearing aid adaption.
