Hearing Care Services
You will be asked to sit in a sound proof booth where our audiologist will be testing you hearing using a series of tones at different pitches and volumes. Also, you will be tested on 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 our audiologist determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
Hearing Aid Evaluation
During your hearing aid evaluation, our Audiologist will discuss with you the benefits of a hearing aid based on your individual hearing loss, your lifestyle and needs. They will explain the different hearing aid technology available along with the different styles. Usually, you will have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office to see for yourself! Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.
Hearing Aid 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 your hearing loss. You will receive instructions on how to use your new hearing aids and what your expectations should be. Our audiologist may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
Hearing Aid Repair
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. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
