Audiology and Hearing Aid Services

Audiology is a branch of health care devoted to the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of hearing disorders. An Audiologist is credentialed in the practice of Audiology to provide a comprehensive array of services related to the prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation of hearing impairment and its associated communication disorder.

How We Hear

Sound is collected by the outer ear through the ear canal to the eardrum. Sound waves then cause the eardrum to vibrate. The vibrating eardrum then causes the three bones of the middle ear(hammer, anvil, and stirrup) to vibrate and conduct the sound through the middle ear to the inner ear. Sound is now changed to an electrical impulse to stimulate nerve endings in the inner ear. The electrical impulse will then travel along the auditory nerve to the brain.

Symptoms of Hearing Loss

  • Turning up the television
  • Asking others to repeat themselves
  • Difficulty hearing on the telephone
  • Hard time understanding in background noiseHear conversation, but not able to understand
  • Saying “HUH” frequentlyAvoid social gatherings

Battery Sales

We keep a supply of batteries for you to purchase in our office. Stop in routinely for fresh batteries. Make sure to check the batteries in your hearing devices often and make sure there is no dirt, wax or debris interfering with the batteries performance. Batteries that are properly charged will make a noise (a squeal) when cupped in your hand or after it has been inserted in your ear, when you cup your hand over the hearing aid it will also make a noise.

Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations

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. Learn More

Ear Impression

Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.

Evaluation and Fitting for Musician's Ear Plugs

Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience. Learn More

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. Learn More
