Hearing Care Services
Whether you’re interested in improving your hearing health or just determining your baseline, you’ll first schedule a comprehensive hearing exam. A proper hearing examination in a sound-treated booth is key to establishing your hearing sensitivities. We are able to evaluate patients from the age of 2 through adulthood.
Communication & Functional Needs Assessment
Our standard of care includes a communication and functional needs assessment (CFNA). This is what makes our practice unique. It is an assessment that goes far beyond the basic “beep test” you may be familiar with. Our patients are successful and have the best outcomes because of this evidence-based approach.
Hearing Aid Selection & Fitting
It’s an exciting time in hearing healthcare because of the variety of options available! Now more than ever, selecting a solution that is right for you requires the expertise of a trusted provider. It’s our responsibility to stay current on the latest technology to be able to make recommendations that best fit your needs, lifestyle, and budget. As an independently owned clinic, we can always make decisions that are in your best interests.
Real Ear Measures
Real Ear Measurement is one of the most important steps in any hearing aid fitting. It is the gold standard used to determine whether a hearing aid user is receiving the precise level of amplification needed at every frequency to achieve the best hearing improvement possible. There is no one size fits all.
Electroacoustic analysis (EAA) is the only way an audiologist can know for sure that a hearing aid is working within manufacturer specifications. We believe you deserve to get the quality you paid for. It’s our responsibility to make sure of it. That’s why it’s our priority to do electroacoustic analysis on all hearing aids before our patients are fit.
Custom Hearing Aid Programming
The options available on today’s hearing aids can be overwhelming. Work with us to utilize all of your hearing aid technology by scheduling a hearing aid programming appointment.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Like any electronic device in constant use, some maintenance and repair are unavoidable. We offer on-site repairs for many issues that may arise. We can also work with your specific manufacturer to arrange factory repairs when needed.
Cerumen (Earwax) Management
Earwax is produced by glands in your ear canal to protect your ear. Excessive wax can result in temporary hearing loss or discomfort. We are proud to be the only clinic in the Indianapolis area using the Earigator ™ Cerumen Management System. With automated temperature and pressure control, our Earigator ™ system allows for safe and comfortable removal. It’s like a “spa” for your ears!
Tinnitus is a condition in which a person might experience ringing or other noises in their ears. It can be constant or intermittent and vary in loudness. There are numerous tinnitus management tools to help make your tinnitus less bothersome.
Assistive Listening Devices
Beyond hearing aids, we also offer assistive listening devices (ALDs) for more specific assistance. They work to separate the signal of interest (speech) from the undesirable background noises to bring the essential information directly to your ears.
Hearing Protection For Hunters, Musicians, Military, and others
Excessive noise exposure can do a tremendous amount of damage, but there are ways we can anticipate and prevent further hearing loss through standard and custom hearing protection. We’ll work with you to select the optimal hearing protection option from a wide range of fitting options and styles.
Industrial Hearing Screenings
Noise can be an unavoidable hazard of many industries, but prevention is key to protecting workers’ safety. We can evaluate your team, per OSHA requirements or simply in the effort of proactive employee health, as well as provide education on best practices for preventing noise-related hearing loss.
