Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
We are committed to providing caring solutions to all of our patients—pediatric through geriatric. We can offer you the following audiology services from the privacy and comfort of our office:
Cerumen, or earwax, can be removed from the ear canal so that it does not interfere with listening or comfort, especially for individuals who wear hearing aids.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluations
Scheduled and performed by a licensed and experienced hearing healthcare professional. These evaluations may be covered by insurance, but discuss with your provider to learn more.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, your hearing care professional will discuss different hearing aid styles, colors, technologies and benefits. Your specialist will help you select the right hearing aid for your personal needs. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing device chosen.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
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.
Live Speech Mapping
Live speech mapping is a test used to help during the hearing aid fitting process. Live speech mapping uses probe microphones and live real-time speech to allow the patient and their family members to immediately see and understand the benefits of hearing aids and fitting adjustments.
Videonystagmography (VNG) - Balance Evaluations
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.
