Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
Your hearing health plays a vital role in your day-to-day functions, whether it’s enjoying time with loved ones and friends or communicating with coworkers on the job. Your auditory system can be impacted by several different factors, from earwax impactions to exposure to loud noise. That’s why the audiologists at Alber Hearing Services offers the care exams and services you need to keep your auditory system healthy. We can help you with the following care services:
While earwax, or cerumen, is a naturally occurring substance, sometimes people simply produce too much. When this happens, hearing loss can become a problem. Because at-home earwax removal can actually cause more problems, we recommend all individuals dealing with excess earwax production to schedule an appointment with an audiologist for earwax removal.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
The best way to prevent hearing loss from occurring in the first place is by wearing hearing protection. At Alber Hearing Services, we offer custom earplugs and earmolds.
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
The journey to a better life through hearing aids begins with a hearing aid evaluation. Hearing testing will be conducted to identify the type and degree of hearing loss you have. Hearing aids come in a variety of styles, and each can be tailored for your specific needs. This testing will help us recommend the right hearing aids for you.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
After undergoing a hearing aid evaluation, you’ll be prepared to select a hearing aid that will best suit your hearing loss needs, budget and lifestyle. With the expertise and help of your Alber Hearing Services audiologist, you’ll be equipped with a hearing aid that is comfortable, long-lasting and improves the quality of your life. Learn more here.
Hearing Aid Repairs and Maintenance
Despite being made with better quality and care than ever before, hearing aids are still delicate devices that are prone to aging and damage if not correctly cared for. At Alber Hearing Services, we offer hearing aid repair and maintenance services to all of our patients. We will communicate with you during each step of the repair process, ensuring you are informed of your options and given a timeline.
Industrial Hearing Screenings
The Office of Health and Safety Administration requires that employees have the right to work in a safe environment. At Alber Hearing Services, we work with employers of all industries to ensure they are providing that safe environment by offering industrial hearing screenings.
Live Speech Mapping
Live speech mapping takes hearing aid fittings to the next level of accuracy. Using live speech mapping, your audiologist places miniature microphones in your ear canal to determine differences in your ability to hear speech while wearing your hearing aids. We will be able to tweak your hearing aids in real-time through the results of the live speech mapping.
Musician's Earplugs and Monitors
Individuals who work in noisy environments are at increased risk for hearing loss. This is never truer than for musicians. We work closely with musicians to provide the exact type of custom earplugs, earmolds and monitors they need that enables them to hear the music around them while still protecting their precious hearing.
Most people think hearing loss is specific to the older generations, but in reality, hearing loss doesn’t discriminate between the young and the old. About two to three of every 1,000 children in the United States are born with a detectable level of hearing loss in one or both ears, according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). At Alber Hearing Services, our audiologists are trained to work with infants and children to provide hearing care services at a time when proper hearing is so essential for proper development.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus, a condition described as a constant chirping, whistling, whooshing or other noise or sound experienced by one person by undetected by another, is a health issue that affects nearly 15 million individuals in the U.S. The audiologists at Alber Hearing Services can provide an array of treatment options to help those with tinnitus, ranging from hearing aids with masking devices to therapies and more.
