Hearing Tests & Hearing Aids
Just because we know what we do every day doesn’t necessarily mean that you know what we do every day! See below for a list of everything we do here every day. Our goal is to make sure that we’re the only place you need to visit for all your hearing healthcare needs.
Do you hear a ringing, roaring, clicking, or hissing sound in your ears? Do you hear this sound often or all the time? Does the sound bother you a lot? If you answer yes to these questions, you may have tinnitus (tin-NY-tus).
Aural rehabilitation or “aural rehab” is the process of identifying and diagnosing a hearing loss and then providing different types of therapies to patients who are hearing impaired. We use aural rehab in our practice as an important component in the overall care of our patients.
Assistive Listening Devices
Several types of ALDs are available to improve sound transmission for people with hearing loss. Some are designed for large facilities such as classrooms, theaters, places of worship, and airports. Other types are intended for personal use in small settings and for one-on-one conversations.
The shape of your outer ear and ear canal are unique to you.
Earmolds are typically used for one of two reasons:
• To keep things out (noise and water are the two big issues).
• To keep things in (amplified sound from a hearing aid).
