Hearing Screenings & Hearing Tests

After we greet you with a smile and ask you to describe your concerns about your hearing, Dr. Nadler will look in your ears and perform a series of easy and painless tests to see what type of hearing loss you have.

You may not have a hearing loss at all! Your ears may have impacted wax that is making it difficult for you to hear clearly. If this is the case, you will likely need only assistance to flush the wax away.

If we determine that you have a hearing loss, we will sit down with you and describe your hearing loss to you and ask you even more questions about your lifestyle and interests. Why so much conversation about your hearing? It's one of the most important things Hearing Care Professionals can do for their patients! People who live a quiet lifestyle, spending time watching TV and woodworking or gardening, and have conversation primarily with their spouses or families in a household atmosphere are going to have very different listening needs from someone who spends a lot of time in restaurants or sporting events. Asking questions helps us to help you find the best possible hearing solution for your unique needs!

Tympanometry

This diagnostic test is performed by inserting a tympanometer probe in the ear canal. The tympanometer changes the pressure in the ear, generates a pure tone, and measures the eardrum responses to the sound at different pressures.

Videonystagmography (VNG)

VNG is a diagnostic test used to determine wither or not dizziness can be attributed to an inner ear disorder. VNG evaluates eye movement, measures dizziness associated with positions of the head and measures responses to temperatures of water circulated through a soft tube placed in the ear canal.

Hearing Aid Fitting & Support

Whether you're new to hearing aids or are an experienced hearing aid user, we can help you select the right instruments for your personal listening needs and fit them to each ear to ensure that you can hear clearly and wear them comfortably. And this applies to not only the day you leave our office with your new hearing instruments, but also any adjustments in programming that you may need in the coming days, months and years as you get used to wearing them.

Hearing Aids are sophisticated and delicate instruments that need good care and regular maintenance to work properly. At The Hearing & Balance Center, we will check in with you to remind you when it's time to come back and visit us so that we can clean any accumulated moisture and earwax from your hearing aids and check them to make sure they are providing you with the best possible hearing clarity and comfort.

Hearing Aid Repair

After you make an investment in your hearing aids, you'll want to keep them in good working order to make sure you're always hearing as clearly as possible.

Like many electronic devices, hearing instruments are sensitive to moisture and their circuitry may on occasion be in need of a little more maintenance than a routine cleaning. If your hearing aids do need to be repaired, we can help. We are able to perform most repairs the same day as your visit. If we do need to send your hearing aids to their manufacturer for repair, we can provide you with a set on loan to help keep you connected with your friends and family until your hearing devices are expertly repaired.

Making sure your hearing aids are properly cleaned and routinely checked will not only help you hear better but also extend the life of your hearing aids.

Call us today to find out more about keeping your hearing aids working their best!
