Specialty Care – No Referral Required*
Take the first important step and call the doctors at ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery. Our Audiologists are dedicated to helping people with hearing problems. An audiologist will conduct a comprehensive diagnostic hearing assessment to determine the type and severity of your hearing loss. Then a comprehensive hearing aid consultation will be scheduled to determine which hearing aids are most appropriate for you.
More than 28 million Americans suffer from sensorineural hearing loss or “nerve deafness” caused by the damage or deterioration of the tiny sound-sensing hair cells in the inner ear. Although hearing loss is the natural result of aging, hearing loss can also result from exposures to loud noise, illness and infections, head trauma, birth defects, certain drugs or even the mumps or measles.
Hearing loss isn’t a condition found only in older adults. In fact, nearly half of the persons with hearing loss are below the age of 65. A recent clinical study by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the National Institute of Health confirmed that hearing aids provide a substantial benefit to users in both quiet and noisy situations, and add much to improve the quality of life for persons with hearing loss. In other words, you don’t have to suffer with hearing loss.
Our comprehensive evaluation includes any and all necessary procedures to determine:
Thorough history of hearing loss
Auditory sensitivity (thresholds)
Speech recognition capabilities
Speech discrimination abilities
Type and degree of hearing loss
Candidacy for amplification devices
In addition to properly fitting your hearing aids our audiologists can provide follow-up care, hearing aid accessories and training for you and your family members.
