Hearing evaluations are usually the first step in diagnosing hearing loss. A comprehensive hearing evaluation is actually a series of tests that collectively measure hearing sensitivity. Results help us fine-tune treatment options for each unique patient.
We firmly believe there is a specific and unique treatment plan for each individual patient. This is why we make sure to offer all hearing aid manufacturers and use our experience and expertise in choosing the right one for you and your communication needs.
Our customized aural rehabilitation program is implemented in every patient’s journey to better hearing. Hearing aids are only one piece to improving your hearing and communication ability. With our holistic approach, you will be sure to walk away with much more than a pair of hearing aids.
Cochlear implants treat severe to profound hearing loss in patients who can’t be treated with hearing aids. We must first perform a cochlear implant evaluation to make sure you are a CI candidate. Then a trained surgeon implants the device, and we can soon begin cochlear implant programming (or mapping).
While there is no cure for tinnitus, it can be successfully managed by the highly trained audiologists at Audiology Associates. It begins with a tinnitus evaluation using our state-of-the-art instruments to pitch and loudness match your unique tinnitus. Then, using a holistic and fine-tuned treatment plan, your tinnitus can successfully be managed.
If you have a conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss, or single-sided deafness, then a bone conduction hearing system may work for you. While a hearing aid tries to push sound through the damaged part of the ear, the BAHS uses your natural ability to conduct sound through bone vibration. By bypassing the damaged outer or middle ear, a clearer, more crisp sound is sent directly to your inner ear.
Custom earmolds are earplugs made from silicone designed specifically to fit your ears. Custom earplugs can be made with filters designed for your specific use. Musician’s filters for avid concert-goes allow you to hear everything clearly while protecting your ears from sounds that are damaging. Shooter’s earplugs have a valve that automatically closes in response to a gunshot.
