What to expect at your appointment:

After having reviewed your detailed history and comprehensive questionnaires a full hearing, tinnitus and/or balance evaluation will be done based on your symptoms and needs.  We are happy to bill your insurance for diagnostic testing and ask that you provide a referral from your primary care physician or ENT, an ID card and your current insurance cards with you at your initial visit.  All test results will be explained to you at the time of testing and reports of the findings can be forwarded to your physician.  Appropriate follow-up referrals to other health care providers for ongoing care such as ENT’s, general practitioners or physical therapists will be discussed with you.

We will discuss if hearing aids or tinnitus relief programs are viable options for you, we will discuss how they can improve communication for you, especially in background noise or when in small group situations. We will also discuss the impact hearing difficulties have on your mood, your withdrawing from social situations, and the frustrations you encounter day to day when trying to communicate with family and friends.  Your audiologist will guide you through the process of choosing the right style and type of hearing aid for you.  The audiologist will work closely with you and if desired, your family members, to ensure you achieve optimal listening ability in spite of your hearing loss. We encourage you to wear a “demo” pair of hearing instruments we will provide at the Hearing Aid Consultation to sample what current digital amplification sounds like.  A 45-day trial period is allotted after purchase to enable you to wear your new hearing aids in all your regular surroundings and truly give them a “test drive.”
