Assistive Listening Devices
In some cases, hearing aids are not the complete answer to communication difficulties. There are many other devices available to help you in your most difficult listening environments. These devices include television listening systems, special doorbells, vibrating alarm clocks, amplified telephones that really work, mobile phone solutions, and more.
Counseling & Rehabilitation
Often, families and spouses need to be included to obtain the optimum results for the person using the hearing aid.

Earwax Removal Services
We employ one of several methods to remove wax. Commonly, the ear is flushed with water which forces the wax from the ear canal. A more sophisticated method is the use of an ear vacuum. In extreme cases where the wax has hardened and is difficult to remove, the patient will be sent home with instuctions on how to use ear drops to soften the wax. Once softened, the patient will return and wax can be easily removed by one of the aforementioned methods. Although uncomfortable and foreign-feeling for some people, ear wax removal is ususally a painless procedure.
Comprehensive hearing evaluations are provided by a Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist (BC-HIS). With state-of-the-art equipment, we will evaluate your hearing needs beginning with a “video-otoscopic” examination that allows us to visually monitor the physical condition of the ear. A complete assessment includes measures of hearing sensitivity for air and bone conducted sounds, speech reception threshold levels, and calculations of speech discrimination. By combining these procedures with the knowledge of our trained specialist, you’ll know exactly what it will take to have better hearing health.
We offer a wide selection of digital processing and digitally programmable hearing aids from a variety of manufacturers. We will work with you to find the best solution for your hearing healthcare needs. We also provide a complete follow-up schedule to help you adjust as you…listen to the sounds of life® again.
