About Digital Hearing Aids
Because each individual has different hearing needs, your hearing solution needs to be as unique as you are. Digital hearing aids are customized to match the exact hearing profile of the hard-of-hearing individual. Digital technology delivers clearer sound quality and better speech understanding.
About Hearing Loss
One out of every 10 Americans has a hearing loss.
Causes of hearing loss include:
• Trauma to the ear, for instance, from exposure to loud noises
• Medical conditions including ear infection and excessive ear wax
• Hereditary factors
• High levels of certain medications
Why Choose an Audiologist?
Audiologists are hearing health care professionals uniquely qualified to evaluate all types of hearing loss and manage hearing losses that cannot be corrected with medical or surgical intervention. They possess either a master's or doctorate degree in Audiology, the science of hearing.
Call today to schedule a hearing evaluation with one of our board certified audiologists. All of our Hearing Centers have ample, off-street parking and convenient, first-floor accessibility.
