Comprehensive diagnostic hearing evaluations

Hearing Aid Center
Our full-service Hearing Aid Center is staffed by experienced audiologists who provide a comprehensive range of services related to hearing aids and assistive listening devices for patients of all ages.
Patients considering hearing aids first undergo a thorough hearing evaluation to identify the nature and degree of hearing loss and ensure that medical intervention with otolaryngology is not indicated. When a hearing aid is recommended, our audiologist considers the individual needs of each patient to help select the most beneficial type, style, and level of amplification. Ear impressions are obtained, and the patient returns in approximately two weeks for the fitting. A 30-day adjustment trial period follows to ensure that patients are receiving maximum benefit from their amplification.
