Hearing Aid and Audiology Services
We perform a simple test to produce an audiogram (a chart that displays your range of hearing) in order to fit you with the appropriate hearing aid. This test can be done in-office or on-site at your home, a senior center or nursing home. If hearing loss is detected, we will work with you to determine the best hearing aid appropriate for your loss.
Hearing Aid In-Office Demonstrations
During your consultation, we may demonstrate the latest hearing aid technology while simulating different listening environments. This gives you a chance to experience what you’ve been missing. We encourage you to bring family members so you have familiar voices to listen to during the demonstration.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.
Hearing Aid Fittings
You will be fit with the hearing aid appropriate for your individual hearing loss. We are able to fit any hearing loss in any lifestyle or price range. We offer high-end hearing aids at affordable prices. During your trial period of the hearing aids, we follow up with you to see how everything is going. Adjustments are normal during these follow-up appointments because you’ll be slowly getting acclimated to way everything sounds with amplification.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office, while major repairs will be sent directly to the manufacturer. Manufacturer warranties will be honored.
- earmold tubing changes
- receiver or slimtube replacements
- wax guard replacements

Custom Ear Molds and Ear Plugs
We make customized ear impressions for various uses: swimming ear plugs and ear plugs for IPODs, MP3 players. Ear molds can be made in various materials and colors for waterproofing, comfort and style.
Evaluation and Fitting for Musician's Ear Plugs
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 ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience.
All services can be done on-site; in the home, senior center, nursing home, etc. With the purchase of hearing aids, everyone is entitled to one FREE home visit per year. All of our services listed above can be performed on-site.
Counseling on the use and care of your hearing aids
Professional staff is available to help you with problems you may be having with your hearing aids. They can also spend time with you and discuss ways to make listening with hearing aids easier in your day-to-day life. Family members are welcome and encouraged to come with you and learn about your hearing aids.
Evaluation and demonstration of Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) including FM systems, Alarm Clocks, TV and Phone Amplifiers
Assistive listening devices are devices that can help a listener function better in day-to-day communication situations. ALDs can be used with or without hearing aids to make hearing easier, which can reduce the overall stress and fatigue of listening. ALDs can be used in the home to make alarms, the television and telephone more audible. They can also be connected to personal hearing aids for better listening in noisy environments
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 the sound quality remains as good as ever and will extend the life of your aids.
Getting Hearing Aids
Once you have told us your history 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? Which style of hearing aid is most suitable for you: analog, digitally programmable or fully digital?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?
Industrial hearing screenings
Workers in certain occupations are required to receive regular hearing tests due to the risk of hearing loss that can be caused by excessive noise in their workplace. These hearing screenings can be completed in less than 30 minutes and comply with the standards set by OSHA.
In Office Services

Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus is described as a ringing in the ear and can range in severity. A tinnitus evaluation can help you identify how much tinnitus interferes with your daily life and if there are treatment options that can benefit you.
Tympanometry is an examination used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the conduction bones, by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal.
