Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
Baha evaluations and fittings
The Baha is an implanted device that utilizes bone conduction to transmit sounds to the inner ear. Our Audiologists will help to determine if you are a Baha candidate, and will assist you through the fitting process.
Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluations
We provide in depth evaluations to diagnose the nature, degree, and configuration of hearing loss and assess the integrity of the auditory system. These evaluations help to determine if hearing aids or medical intervention is needed.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Our Audiologists can make custom ear pieces to use in conjunction with hearing aids or for other applications, such as for noise suppression, musician's filtered plugs, swim plugs, and sleeping.
Hearing Aid Accessories and Assistive Listening Devices Manufacturers
Hearing Aid Accessories and Assistive Listening Devices Manufacturers have wireless accessories that can be used in conjunction with their hearing aids to help maximize hearing ability for specific environments. These include devices to stream phone or television into the hearing aids, remote microphones that allow the user to hear a speaker from up to 30 feet away, or personal FM systems. There are also a variety of assistive listening devices that are available to even non-hearing aid users to help hear conversation, TV, or phone calls more clearly.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who 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. The hearing professional 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. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
These tests help to provide information about causes of dizziness or imbalance.
