Hearing care professionals recommend at minimum annual hearing testing to measure an individual’s ability to hear at normal sound levels. When loss is identified, we record and report type, degree, and shape of loss. Objective test results are used to determine candidacy for and type of treatment. Advanced diagnostic hearing testing is performed by a licensed audiologist in collaboration with attending board certified ear, nose, and throat medical doctors.
When sensorineural loss is identified and need for amplification determined by the audiologist and physician, we perform a thorough listening needs and lifestyle assessment to gain subjective data that helps guide our recommendation of optimal hearing technology. Results from both the diagnostic hearing test and the hearing needs evaluation determine the customized hearing aid solution for every candidate.
The audiologist is skilled to select the best of available hearing aid technology to match your hearing loss, ear geometry, daily usage requirements, performance needs, cosmetic preferences, and budget. Details gathered from the hearing needs evaluation make this selection process easy and comfortable. Initial customized programming and fitting of instruments is included in the upfront cost for hearing care treatment.
Routine general maintenance and cleaning of hearing devices are included in the upfront price for the length of warranty per selected device. Our on-sight repair lab enables us to perform minor hearing instrument repairs for you.

Routine adjustments of hearing instruments are included in the upfront cost for treatment for the length of warranty per selected device. Once hearing aids are fit to satisfaction, generally adjustments occur every 6 months or when changes to device performance warrant correction for optimization.
