Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
At Associated Specialists in Hearing Disorders & Hearing Aids, we understand how essential clear hearing is to your daily life, whether it’s at work or play. That’s why we offer a range of hearing care services to help you communicate easily, including:
Earwax, or cerumen, is a naturally occurring substance that protects the intricate and delicate pieces of the inner ear from dirt and debris. While every person produces earwax, sometimes an individual may produce too much or find that earwax has become compacted. When this occurs, hearing loss can become an issue. It is important to visit an audiologist at Associated Specialists in Hearing Disorders & Hearing Aids for earwax removal, as at-home remedies, including cotton swabs, can actually make the problem worse and cause severe damage, like ruptured eardrums.
Hearing tests & Evaluations
If you or a loved one has been referred to an audiologist, it is likely because your primary care physician recommends additional testing regarding hearing loss. Diagnostic audiologic evaluations are performed to determine if an individual has hearing loss and, if so, what type and degree of hearing loss. The evaluations often provide insight into the cause of the hearing loss.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
With so many hearing aids available on the market, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. The specially-trained audiologists at Associated Specialists in Hearing Disorders & Hearing Aids are available to provide input and evaluation for the right hearing aid for your type and degree of hearing loss.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
After choosing the right hearing aid for your type and degree of hearing loss, you get to learn all about your hearing aid at the hearing aid dispensing and fitting appointment. The hearing aid dispensing and fitting appointment at Associated Specialist in Hearing Disorders & Hearing Aids empowers clients to learn how to use their hearing aids and ensure they fit right and comfortably.
Hearing Aid Repairs
While hearing aids are becoming ever-advancing pieces of technology that are more difficult to break, they are still prone to needing repair and maintenance. The audiologists on our team are specially trained to provide repairs and quick fixes, should the need arise.
Caring for your ears and hearing is as important as caring for any other part of your body. That’s why, at Associated Specialists in Hearing Disorders & Hearing Aids provides and promotes hearing care for infants and children, too. Just like teeth and eyes, it is important for children to learn to take care of their ears to prevent or slow down gradual hearing loss. After all, hearing loss doesn’t discriminate amongst ages and can happen to anyone.
Treatment options are determined by the underlying cause. Tinnitus that is caused by a health condition is often easily treated by taking a few steps to treat the underlying issue.
