We Listen So You Can Hear

As we sit down to get to know you better, we will begin by discussing your most important listening needs. This information along with the hearing test results will be reviewed to determine the most appropriate hearing solution for your particular hearing loss. Based on this information, we will present the absolute best Hearing loss treatments utilizing the latest hearing aid technology and sound based therapies.

 

We work with all of the major hearing aid manufacturers including Widex, Oticon, Unitron, Resound, Phonak, Signia, and Starkey. We believe having extensive knowledge of all major hearing aid brands and other hearing devices better enables us to choose the best product with the features you desire without compromise.  Trusting us with your hearing healthcare means we do extensive work to find the perfect product and the best results.

Tailored Best Practices and Programming

Once the most appropriate hearing devices have been discussed and selected for the patient, our hearing care practitioners will perform tests on the hearing devices to ensure they are operating optimally.

 

Upon completing these verification tests, we will validate that the hearing devices are working properly by asking the patient questions in regards to sound quality, ear balance, and comfort of the devices. Many studies have pointed to the rationales for performing these measurements in terms of providing the highest level of service to the patients in terms of their communication needs.

 

Audiology best practices guidelines state that verification and validation testing should be completed to ensure that hearing devices are properly programmed for each individual.
