Each member of our team strives to help individuals who have a hearing loss improve their quality of life.
According to a national survey, hearing amplification can help people improve their overall health by strengthening interpersonal relationships, reducing anger and frustration, improving emotional stability and self-reliance, and enhancing social activity.* Hearing aids significantly improve quality of life for many individuals by providing better hearing. If you have noticed difficulty hearing or communicating with people in certain situations, a hearing evaluation and consultation may answer many of your questions.

Why consult an audiologist?
Audiologists are the professionals dedicated to helping people with hearing problems. In the United States, the majority of hearing aids are dispensed by licensed audiologists. An audiologist will conduct a comprehensive diagnostic hearing assessment to determine the type and severity of your hearing loss. Then a comprehensive hearing aid evaluation will be used to determine which hearing aids are most appropriate for you. In addition to properly fitting your hearing aids, an audiologist can provide follow-up care, hearing aid accessories and training for you and your family members.
Audiologists are trained in the prevention, diagnosis and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders. Audiologists provide hearing services at medical centers, hospitals, clinics, schools and in private practice. A qualified audiologist holds a graduate degree from an accredited university; has obtained state licensure; completed a full-time clinical internship; and passed national competency examinations. Audiologists use the most advanced computerized procedures and state-of-the-art equipment to individualize the fitting of your hearing aids.
