A hearing exam is the first stage in determining the nature of your hearing loss. If you have a hearing loss, it will specify the magnitude, type and specifics of your specific hearing loss.
These tests will be conducted by one of our qualified professionals and consists of a multitude of exams to determine the distinctive characteristics of your hearing loss as well as the extent at which you can recognize and comprehend speech.
We do this to rule out certain types of hearing loss which can be treated surgically. It is essential that these kinds of hearing loss be ruled out before hearing aids or other treatments are treated as an option.
If the tests show you need hearing aids, they will also tell us which types of hearing aids will best suit your particular hearing loss.

Custom Hearing Protection
Abrupt or extended noise exposure can cause hearing harm and is one of the major causes of hearing loss. Hearing loss from extended exposure to noise is gradual in nature and often identified too late, which means that it is usually permanent. No surgery or medical procedure currently exists to correct it.
That's why hearing safety is crucial for anyone who spends time in noisy environments on a regular basis, including target shooters, motorcyclists, airline pilots, musicians and construction and manufacturing workers. Anyone exposed to noise may need to wear hearing protection to safeguard their long-term hearing.
Custom earmolds are designed to suit your ear's unique shape. If you can't get a good fit with traditional earplugs, customized earmolds are a good option. As well as unparalleled comfort, they provide some of the best possible hearing protection.

Ear Wax Management
Earwax is generated naturally in the ears to help clean debris out of the ear canal. Also called cerumen, the earwax usually clears from our ears naturally, but in some instances, it can block our ears. This can lead to temporary hearing loss, tinnitus, earache or an increase in ear pressure.
Our hearing professionals only use the best-available wax removal techniques. In general, we try to send patients home with an ear wax removal kit but, if necessary, we will perform an office operation for more severe cases. Before deciding on what course to take, we will evaluate the severity of the impacted earwax. If you think you might have an issue with impacted earwax, contact us for an appointment today.
