Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
Hearing loss is very personal. You deserve personal attention to help you live life fully with hearing loss. At Audiology Services Inc. you will always receive expert, professional care that meets the highest standards for services and hearing care products. When it comes to diagnosing and treating your hearing loss, we offer a number of different services to ensure you get the best solution for your needs.
Cerumen (earwax) is nature’s way of keeping your ears protected. That’s a good thing. But, sometimes too much of a good thing can cause a problem. Hard or compacted earwax can interfere with hearing or cause whistling or feedback with hearing aids. Trust the professionals at Audiology Services Inc. to safely remove excess ear wax safely and painlessly.
Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluations
If you struggled to pass a basic hearing screening, a thorough diagnostic evaluation of your hearing is necessary. These tests will determine the cause and degree of your hearing loss. All hearing tests are completely painless, and the entire evaluation only takes about an hour. If tests indicate that your hearing can be enhanced with hearing aids, your hearing needs, lifestyle, budget and cosmetic concerns will be matched with the best hearing technology for you.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
Ordering your hearing aids is just the first step to better hearing. Your hearing aids will arrive programmed from the manufacturer. However, Audiology Services Inc. wants you to have the best hearing experience possible. That’s why we take the time to fine-tune and adjust your hearing aids until you hear clearly and comfortably. We’ll even combine live speech mapping with the voice of a friend or family member to make sure a familiar sound is used for fine-tuning. In addition, you’ll learn how to insert and remove your hearing aids, how to care of your devices and what steps to take to adjust to wearing your new hearing aids. Like adjusting to wearing glasses or contact lenses, adjusting to wearing hearing aids takes a short period of time.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Digital hearing aids contain state of the art technology. They have very few moving parts to break. However, things can still go wrong. Bring your hearing aids to Audiology Services Inc. for warranty repairs. Many small repairs can be made while you wait. If your hearing aids need to be returned to the factory, we will take care of that for you. Even if your hearing aids are out of warranty or you purchased them elsewhere, we can still perform most repairs. Even if you clean your hearing aids regularly at home, it’s a good idea to bring them in every six months for a deep cleaning.
Live Speech Mapping
Audiology Services Inc. uses the latest technology to ensure that your hearing aids are programmed to work with your hearing and your individual ear structure. We use live speech mapping and the voice of a friend or family to fine tune your hearing aids. A small microphone is placed in your ear along with your hearing aid. As you hear a familiar voice, you’ll see a visual representation of the sound while the audiologist adjusts your hearing aids. This process eliminates the need for several appointments to adjust your hearing aid settings and is shown to improve wearer satisfaction.
Musician's Earplugs and Monitors
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 earplugs help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience.
