Hearing Aids

Hearing loss is much more complex than most realize. With seemingly endless options of technology and styles, our team is here for you to find the best solution for your needs and lifestyle.


Hearing Aid Technology

The world of hearing aid technology is rapidly evolving. Our practice works with all major hearing aid manufacturers and our audiologists are trained to understand the intricate differences. Current technology is incredibly smart. Utilizing AI and sophisticated sound processing microchips, optimal hearing can be achieved in ways never before possible. Hearing aids can also connect wirelessly to your phone and other devices to enhance your lifestyle.


Benefits of Hearing Aids

There are 48 million people throughout the country with some measurable degree of hearing loss.

Of those people, only 20 percent who could benefit from the use of a hearing aid actually wear them. It turns out, living with untreated hearing loss can do more damage than originally thought and those who seek treatment sooner see improvements in all aspects of their lives. Individuals who choose to treat their hearing loss with hearing aids are known to have better overall health, professional success and emotional well-being than those who don’t.

Improved Mental Health

Those that treat their hearing loss have a decrease in feelings of depression, anger and anxiety.

Improved Cognitive Health

Individuals with untreated hearing loss are at an increased risk of cognitive decline.

Improved Physical Health

Individuals with untreated hearing loss are three times more likely to suffer physical injuries, specifically falls.

Improved Balance

Individuals that use a hearing device to treat their hearing loss may also see an improvement in their balance.

Improved Ability to Focus

Untreated hearing loss leads to difficulty concentrating, especially when communicating with others.

Improved Ability to Learn

New research suggests that untreated hearing loss can lead to problems storing new information.

Renewed Confidence

Treating hearing loss enables an individual to once again be able to navigate the world on their own, particularly in a safe manner.

Increased Control Over Life Events

When overcoming a reliance on others to understand what is going on in the hearing world, an individual with hearing loss will regain their sense of control.

Better Relationships

Being able to successfully communicate with loved ones leads to healthier and longer-lasting relationships.

Increased Social Interactions

Improved communication leads to a boost in confidence and more social activities with friends and loved ones.


    Hearing Aid Fitting

    When your audiologist recommends hearing aids, the selection is only the beginning of the process. Equally important is the fitting, which involves programming your hearing aids and making adjustments to provide the correct levels of amplification for your specific type of hearing loss and your individual listening needs. No two hearing losses are created equal and what works for one, may not for another. Counseling ensures that you have realistic expectations which is crucial for long-term success.

    Much like computers, hearing aid technology is advancing very quickly. Our expert staff is trained in the latest technology to ensure we are on the cutting edge of what is available for best hearing outcomes. We work with all major hearing aid manufacturers to ensure the most appropriate recommendation is provided.
