IS HEARING LOSS IMPACTING MY QUALITY OF LIFE?
Our ability to hear the world around us affects our day-to-day life more than we sometimes think. It affects how we work, communicate, and even relax. About 20 percent of Americans are living with some degree of hearing loss, according to the Hearing Loss Association of America.
Wearing hearing aids reduces the risk of cognitive decline associated with hearing loss, and they can improve sense of control, physical health, and communication in relationships. It has also been shown that people with hearing aids are more likely to be optimistic and feel engaged in life.
Not able to get out of the house? No worries, we can come to you!
We make FREE house calls by appointment. While at your home, we can help you choose the right hearing aid for you or take care of fittings.
Just let us know when you book an appointment that you would like us to come to you – it's as easy as that!
We can also make adjustments remotely through the Hear Care Anywhere program!
Even with the proper care, your hearing aid may need to be adjusted or repaired.
We can determine if problems related to high levels of feedback or whistling mean you need to get re-fitted, need a new earmold, or require reprogramming of the hearing aid to account for hearing changes.
If the problem is caused by an issue with the device itself, we can repair the problem ourselves or send it to the manufacturer.
We have financing options available to make your hearing aids more affordable. We accept CareCredit, a credit card for health-related costs — including hearing products and services! Find out more at carecredit.com

TYPES OF HEARING AIDS
ALL OF OUR HEARING AIDS ARE BLUETOOTH-COMPATIBLE
A behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid goes over the top of your ear and has a piece that sits behind it. The tubes connect to an individually-designed earpiece that fits your ear canal and amplifies sound. These aids work for people of all ages who suffer from moderate to severe hearing loss as they are generally easy to insert and remove without assistance.
BTE HEARING AIDS
In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid come in two styles: half shell, which fits into the lower part of the ear; and full shell, which covers most of the outer ear. Both styles are worn by people suffering from mild to severe hearing loss. The benefits of an ITE hearing aid include volume control and longer battery life than smaller hearing aids.
ITE HEARING AIDS
In-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids are custom-made for the shape of your ear. They are generally unobtrusive, but a portion of the aid is visible. Styles include completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids, as well as invisible-in-canal (IIC) hearing aids. ITC, CIC and IIC hearing aids work well for individuals with mild to moderate hearing loss.
ITC HEARING AIDS
With receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids, also known as receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) hearing aids, the speaker section is inserted in the ear canal, while the amplifier and microphone rest behind the ear. This separation allows the components to remain small in size and easy to hide from view. RIC hearing aids are often used by people with moderate to severe hearing loss.
