HEARING AID SERVICES
We provide comprehensive hearing assessments to our patients. You will be given a thorough examination and explanation of the results and recommendations. Follow-up referrals will also be made as warranted. We pride ourselves on offering a very honest, realistic approach to your hearing healthcare. Our experts provide thorough and reliable information about today's latest technology.
In order to adjust your hearing aid to your individual requirements, we first determine your personal hearing profile, or "audiogram." This is done by testing your ability to hear a variety of speech and environmental sounds.
To determine the optimum settings for your hearing aids, we use your audiogram, acoustical parameters of the hearing device, and run real ear measurements, as well as your personal impression of how well you can hear. This adjustment process is carried out using the appropriate manufacturer computer software.
When adjusting your hearing aids, we take various measurements to check how well you can hear. Once we teach you how to operate them and instruct you on the energy supply (batteries), you should wear your new hearing aids for a few days in your regular surroundings.
Based upon what you tell us about how well you can hear in your everyday surroundings, we will make any necessary adjustments to your hearing aids or add additional specific programs.

Real Ear Measurement
Real Ear Measurement
With every hearing aid fitting this measurement test is performed. A thin probe microphone is inserted into the ear canal alongside the hearing aid. We will obtain readings of the exact sound levels you are receiving from the hearing aid while listening to various recorded speech samples. We can then precisely adjust the sound levels to match target amplification levels based on your hearing loss across the different speech frequencies. No guessing or averages, just your exact target prescription.
Ear impressions are a model of the complete interior of your ears. They reproduce the shape of your ears using a medical grade silicone, which is crucial to the building of your perfect fitting, custom, in the ear devices and ear molds.
We also offer swim ear plugs, hunter ear plugs and musician impressions.
Once you have told us your problems and your personal expectations with regard to your hearing, we provide you with detailed advice on the most appropriate products and facilities to meet your requirements:
Which ear has a problem hearing?
Do you want to regulate the volume of the hearing aid yourself, or would you prefer a hearing aid that adjusts automatically to any hearing situation?
Which aid best suits your hearing loss or your personal situation? A Completely-in-the Ear, In-the-Canal, In-the-Ear (ITE), or behind-the-ear aid (BTE) aid?
Once your hearing aids have been fitted to your complete satisfaction, we will provide you with detailed information on how they should be maintained. Of course, you can have your hearing aids checked by us at any time. This will ensure that the sound quality remains as good as ever, and will extend the life of your aids.
