Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
During your examination you will be tested by a Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
We are proud to carry the battery with the longest projected battery life. The Power One battery is the hearing aid battery of choice as it lasts longer than most other batteries. It is obtained directly from hearing aid manufacturers and dispensed quickly upon its receipt to guarantee the freshest battery performance. Patients continue to confirm the increased battery life they receive from our batteries. These batteries are kept conveniently near the front desk and entrance door to allow for ease and convenience of purchase. Try them and see for yourself.

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 Dispensing & Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
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 you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
We encourage ongoing cleaning and maintenance after your hearing aid purchase to ensure you receive optimum performance and benefit from your hearing aid(s). We encourage all our patients to come in for regular hearing aid check-ups and cleaning.
Repairs, Maintenance, Cleanings, and Warranties come with all brands of hearing aids. We offer in-office repairs when possible on most makes/models.
Custom Hearing Protection
Custom hearing protection for people who work or play in loud noise or music. Custom earmolds for musicians, hunters, and anyone else in loud environments.
