HEARING EVALUATIONS FOR ALL AGES, INFANTS THROUGH ADULTS. Puretone air and bone conduction testing. Testing puretones is done to determine the degree and configuration of hearing loss and bone conduction determines if the type of hearing loss is conductive or sensorineural.
SPEECH AUDIOMETRY. Speech thresholds are obtained to cross-check puretone results. Speech discrimination is also determined to evaluate the individual’s ability to understand speech at an amplifed but comfortable volume. This helps us to set realistic expectation levels regarding how well the individual will understand speech when wearing appropriately recommended and fitted hearing aids.
TINNITUS EVALUATION. Comprehensive assessment of tinnitus (ringing, hissing, roaring and other noises in the ears).
RECOMMENDATIONS. Hearing aid recommendations are based on hearing test results, individual listening needs, and concerns unique to each person such as cosmetics, manual dexterity and finances.
We work with multiple manufacturers who are global leaders in advanced hearing aid technology (Phonak, Oticon, Widex, Siemens, etc.) so we can best meet your needs. Franchises, such as Beltone and Miracle Ear, are limited to selling only their brands, and though not available outside of the franchise, hearing aids comparable to the franchise brands are often available through the parent company. For example, GN Resound is the parent company of Beltone and offers comparable hearing aids under the Resound label (compare Beltone Touch to Resound Be or Beltone Marq to Resound Dot); Likewise, Miracle Ear compares to Siemens while NuEar and Audibel compare to Starkey.
We will counsel you regarding which hearing aid is recommended and why-- taking into consideration the level of technology, features, size, style, etc. The style of hearing aid refers to whether or not it sits on the ear, behind the ear or in the ear. Size and style do not determine price as much as level of technology and features do.
FITTING. Hearing aids are individually programmed and fit, taking special care for comfort, sound quality and optimal benefit. The patient and family members/caregivers are oriented to the use and care of the instruments.
SERVICE. Most of our hearing aids come with a three year manufacturer's warranty which covers repairs at no charge. If service is required on hearing aids out of warranty, an estimate of charges will be given. Any in-house service including minor repairs, modifications, cleaning and programming adjustments is free for hearing aids purchased here.
We will gladly service hearing aids that were not purchased here for a nominal fee.
SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. Your satisfaction is very important to us. Hearing aid purchases include a risk-free trial period of no less than 30 days. Money-back guaranteed.
Hearing loss from excessive exposure to noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss, especially among baby-boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964). This type of hearing loss can be caused by a one-time exposure to loud sound as well as by repeated exposure to sounds at various levels. It is referred to as Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) and is almost always preventable but rarely reversible.
