Hearing is one of the most important senses that we use, especially when we monitor our environments for safety and security. Hearing also is linked directly to speech. Without effective use of hearing, people may become isolated and their quality of life may be compromised. Therefore, hearing tests and other ear-related tests routinely are used to measure how well a person performs in comparison to others. An audiologist or licensed specialist administers these tests
This machine magnifies the ear canal and eardrum thirty times. This enables us to look for earwax and possible ear infections in the ear canal. We also use this machine to troubleshoot possible problems in a dead hearing instrument.
You can actually see the inside of your own ear! You will know if there are problems such as wax buildup.
We have Audiologists on staff trained to remove any excess wax that may be affecting your hearing.
We have a specialized system in each office to dry and clean any instrument. It removes wax and debris from deep inside the microphones and speakers that daily cleaning can’t reach.
We can test your current instruments to determine if they are performing to their original specifications and that they are meeting your current needs.
We have the ability to program hearing instruments from most of the manufacturers. We can tune your instrument to better meet your needs.
We have labs in each office equipped to allow us to make many repairs and modifications to your hearing instruments without sending them to the factory.
Even though you may have taken steps to improve your hearing, you still may be missing out on words and conversations.
That’s because you hear with your ears—but listen with your brain. Even people with normal hearing can have poor listening skills and miss portions of what is being said. The good news is that your brain can be trained to use strategies that compensate for situations when your hearing ears alone may not be enough.
