Our office has a warm, friendly atmosphere that feels like home. We will put you at ease and offer you water or coffee when you first arrive in our reception area.
When it's time for your appointment, we'll bring you back to our testing area and our hearing instrument specialist will talk to you about what's brought you to come see us. We like to get to know you and gain a complete understanding of your hearing situation. You will always have the opportunity to ask questions, at the beginning of your appointment, during the testing process, and while we're going over your results. We want you to feel included and educated on your own hearing health.
Our office is equipped with technology that allows us to examine your ears thoroughly and test both your hearing and your speech comprehension. We'll run through a series of evaluations that are painless and easy. We'll be able to tell if you have ear wax or something else that is causing hearing loss, and we'll get a full understanding of what sounds you've been having difficulty with. We also simulate some of the sounds you come across in everyday life, such as the television.
After we've completed the testing, we'll go over your results and explain what we've learned about your hearing. We can then program demo hearing aids so you can see for yourself how they feel and sound. Often, the difference is immediately obvious as soon as you put the hearing aids on. We also recommend having a friend or spouse with you so you can try out the demo hearing aids listening to a familiar voice. This first-hand experience helps you figure out if hearing aids are right for you.
If you decide to purchase hearing aids, we'll put in an order for you right away. Then we'll bring you back in to fit you with your own hearing aids. For the first month that you have new hearing aids, we ask you to come in at least 2-4 times so we can check how well your hearing aids are working for you and make any adjustments based on your experience those first few weeks.
