Hearing Care and Hearing Aid Services
During a hearing evaluation, a variety of tests to determine the unique aspects of your hearing will be performed. This evaluation can be conducted on people of any age, but the individual tests will vary by age.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, your hearing aids are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. Hearing aid care, use, and expectations will be discussed. Over time, adjustments will also be made to optimize your hearing.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if your hearing aid is not working properly.
Tinnitus is described as a ringing or noise in the ear, and can range in severity. A tinnitus evaluation can help identify the characteristics or your tinnitus, what might be causing it, and how much it interferes with your daily life. Treatment options that can benefit you will be discussed.
Certain balance evaluations, such as Videonystagmography (VNG) evaluate the function of the vestibular portion of the inner ear for patients who are experiencing symptoms of vertigo, unsteadiness, dizziness, and other balance disorders.

Cerumen, or earwax, can be removed from the ear canal so that it does not interfere with listening or comfort.
