Hearing Aid Services
Our goal is to help everyone communicate to their greatest potential and find flexible hearing solutions that work for your lifestyle and within your budget. Ongoing support will be provided to help you realize the full benefit of your hearing instrument to maximize your communication for an improved quality of life.
Once a hearing loss is identified it is important to have an extensive Hearing Aid Evaluation to determine the best hearing solution. We guide the family through the process of selecting the best instrument for the individual and then through the fitting and adjustment process. Each person is unique and requires a different solution to their hearing problems. Therefore, we offer hearing aids from various manufacturers, in various styles from completely in the canal to the behind the ear instruments. All hearing aids are digital instruments that use the the latest technology to provide the best possible hearing.

Today’s hearing aids are completely different from the hearing aids our parents or grandparents had to tolerate. What we once thought was impossible 10 years ago is now possible due to the rapid change in technology. Today’s hearing aids allow for:
- Improved speech understanding in the presence of background noise with the automatic noise reduction algorithms.
- Smaller size hearing aids due to the miniaturization of the computer chip.
- Fully automatic, no more having to turn the aid up and down based on the environment you are in.
- Excellent control of the annoying “whistle” that everyone else can hear, but the person wearing the aid.
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Wind noise reduction
The in-the-canal (ITC) style fits inside the ear canal and provides good benefit for individuals with a mild or moderate hearing loss.
An in-the-ear (ITE) style fits into the contour of the outer ear and extends into the ear canal. These aids are more visible than canal aids and can help people with a greater degree of hearing loss – from mild to moderate or even severe.
The behind-the-ear (BTE) style fits over and behind the ear and requires an earmold in the outer ear that is connected with the hearing aid via tubing. This aid is recommended for all ranges of hearing loss.
