Professional Hearing Services offers a comprehensive set of services for all your hearing needs including evaluations, hearing aid repair and tinnitus therapy.
Hearing evaluations are the important first step on your journey to better hearing health. A hearing evaluation, performed by a licensed audiologist, determines the presence of a hearing loss, the type of hearing loss (conductive, sensorineural, etc.), the degree of hearing loss (mild, moderate, severe, profound), and the configuration of hearing loss (single-sided or binaural). From the results of your hearing evaluation, we will work with you to determine a comprehensive treatment plan that fits with your lifestyle.
Hearing Aid Consultation and Evaluation
Do you currently wear hearing aids and find they are not functioning as well as they once did? Hearing aid technology is ever changing. Let us evaluate your current hearing aids and determine if you need an updated version or ones with a specific different feature. It is important to keep in mind that your hearing also changes, and a hearing aid evaluation may also indicate that you need an updated hearing evaluation.
Hearing Aid Fitting & Re-Fittings
What style of hearing aid is right for you? Does your hearing aid style fit correctly behind or in your ear? Is the amplification correct for your degree of hearing loss? Can you go from one listening environment to another with relative ease and comfort?
Hearing aid fittings ensure that you get the most out of your devices. Based on our evaluation of your hearing, as well as our consultation to learn more about your lifestyle, we will find the device that is right for you and your hearing needs. Even if you didn’t buy your hearing devices from us, we would be happy to perform an evaluation at a consultation appointment. Your hearing aids may need some adjustments, or you may benefit from new devices.
Hearing Aid Repair
Hearing aids are designed to be worn every day, from the moment you wake to the moment you sleep. If they work properly, you won’t even notice them! That being said, your hearing aids are sensitive electronic devices that do require maintenance from time to time. Sometimes a good cleaning is all your hearing aids need, but if there is a problem that needs repairing, Professional Hearing Services is here for you.
Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs)
Assistive learning devices (ALDs) help amplify sounds you want to hear. They can be used with a hearing aid to help you hear more clearly in challenging noise environments. Personal ALDs come in different hand-held or wearable options, and they utilize infrared or FM waves to pick up and amplify sound.
Other ALDs function as alerting devices – for the doorbell or an alarm, for example. There are also ALDs such as a telecoil (T-coil) which can help with your listening experience in difficult acoustic spaces, such as a large auditorium or concert hall. These are often built into hearing aids and can be simply switched on and connected with the PA system. Captioned telephones are another popular ALD, transcribing your conversation in real-time as text-to-screen so that you can easily follow along on the phone.
If you are interested in incorporating an ALD into your life, our team at Professional Hearing Services can help you navigate your way through these devices with explanations and advice.
Cerumen, or earwax, is a self-cleaning agent that occurs naturally in your ear that helps with lubricating as well as combatting bacteria. The use of hearing devices can cause wax to build up in your ears. In some instances, earwax overproduces naturally. Never push cotton swabs, or other objects deeply into your ear to attempt to remove a wax blockage!
If you need to remove earwax, it is recommended to visit a professional for cerumen removal. At Professional Hearing Services, our team is experienced in cerumen removal. We ensure a painless experience that will have you feeling better in no time.
Custom Hearing Protection
Hearing protection is important for anyone who regularly comes into contact with high-noise environments including target shooting, motorcycling, airline pilots, musicians, firefighters, construction workers and factory workers.
Custom ear plugs can be tailored for you and your usage. Some will block sound entirely and some will let sound through. Earmolds and ear plugs are available for those who need to protect themselves from noise, but also for protection while engaging in activities such as swimming.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Treatment
Tinnitus is an auditory sensation described as ringing or roaring in the ears, though it is not caused by external sound. Tinnitus sounds can range in loudness and pitch and may be a constant source of irritation. Tinnitus may also appear irregularly, at unexpected times. Regardless of its occurrence, tinnitus has a wide range of negative affects including fatigue, trouble concentrating and relaxing, depression and irritability. The majority of tinnitus cases are related to hearing loss. There are a number of treatments available to treat tinnitus. Contact us at Professional Hearing Services to learn more.
Approximately 60% of service men and women returning from combat zones experience some degree of hearing loss, as well as tinnitus. At Professional Hearing Services, we honor the brave people who have served our country. We are proud to provide hearing health services for veterans and work closely with the VA to ensure that you receive the best hearing health care for your needs.
