About Advanced Hearing Solutions and Our Doctors
We are not a high-pressure, sales-driven office. We provide information, service and extremely reasonable prices to our patients who are looking for a safe place to discuss their hearing loss without the pressure of purchasing an expensive product.
Feeling “disconnected” from family, friends, colleagues and essential conveniences of modern life, such as cellphones and television, is a concern voiced by many who come to Advanced Hearing Solutions.
Even mild hearing loss can make it challenging to distinguish speech and other sounds in the environment. It can become difficult to understand what is going on around you. People with untreated hearing loss often end up feeling insecure and isolated.
When you schedule an appointment with one of our audiologists, they will take the time needed to evaluate your specific situation and give you the appropriate recommendations. Our audiologists have more than 30 years of experience helping patients determine if a hearing device or other treatment is necessary.
We do not charge for a hearing test or hearing device consultation. Hearing evaluations are complimentary, with no obligation to purchase. But if a hearing device is necessary, our audiologists will work with you to select, fit and determine the appropriate device for your hearing needs. We offer hearing aids, custom hearing protection, musician monitors, earpieces and hearing care products at reasonable prices. We then provide follow-up appointments to ensure the hearing device is functioning properly and all your questions and concerns are addressed. Your satisfaction and care is our top priority.
What Is an Audiologist?
Have you ever wondered what exactly an audiologist does, besides look inside your ears with a lighted instrument? If you have been diagnosed with hearing loss, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about this professional who will be intimately involved in helping you come up with a solution that allows you to communicate more effectively.
An audiologist is a professional who specializes in the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of hearing and balance disorders. Most have earned an Au.D. (Doctor of Audiology) while others have received a master’s degree from an accredited university, where they received extensive training in the prevention, identification, assessment and non-medical treatment of hearing and balance disorders. They have to complete an internship, pass a national competency examination and obtain professional certification and licensure in the state(s) where they practice.
Audiologists work with patients of all ages, treating infants, children and adults for a variety of hearing and balance problems. They work in diverse settings like hospitals, schools, clinics, universities, private practices, VA hospitals, hearing aid dispensaries and otolaryngology (ENT) offices. Audiologists are responsible for services such as:
- Fitting and dispensing hearing aids
- Administering hearing and balance tests
- Assessing candidacy for and programming implantable hearing devices (e.g., cochlear implants, bone anchored hearing aids, etc.)
- Counseling patients and their families on communication strategies
- Designing and implementing hearing conservation programs and newborn hearing screenings
- Providing aural rehabilitation programs
- Performing ear-related surgical monitoring
All in all, audiologists are the most qualified individuals to help you manage your hearing loss or balance disorder, and they provide an unparalleled breadth of care.
