Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
During your examination you will be tested using a series of low & high frequency tones and words to determine your ability to understand conversation. The results will help us determine the extent of your hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear. Learn More
Ear Impression (Ear Molds)
We will take impressions of your ears to produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. Several styles and materials are available. We also sell earplugs. Our custom hearing aid earmolds are $75 each.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During your hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits of wearing hearing aids. You can be shown different styles and have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Impressions may be taken of your ears, for custom hearing aids or earmolds. Learn More
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. This often occurs during the first appointment, using hearing aids off the shelf. They will be programmed based on a prescription that is specific to your hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure you get the fit that is most helpful for you. Learn More
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 out for repair. We can help you determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly. If your hearing aids are in need of repair, but are out of warranty, we can send them to a regional repair facility that we trust, and the charge is usually $148 per aid with a 6 month warranty.

Live Speech Mapping
Live Speech Mapping is a fitting process that uses probe microphones and live real-time speech to allow you and your family members to immediately see and understand the benefits of hearing aids and fitting adjustments. As all ears have unique physical shape and size, the sound does different things in each ear canal before it reaches the eardrum. Live Speech Mapping, or Real Ear Measurement, reads the actual sound that reaches the eardrum. Using this measure, the we can adjust the sound levels at the eardrum to improve hearing at specific frequencies. Learn More
Musician's Earplugs and Monitors
Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to loud sounds, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience. Learn More
