At Certified Hearing Aid Care, we offer a wide range of services to ensure your hearing health is what it should be. We start with a comprehensive hearing evaluation and based on the results, we work with you to improve any hearing loss you might have.
Comprehensive Hearing Evaluations
A comprehensive hearing evaluation is a multi-part test to measure your total hearing ability. It is a relatively quick and painless process. At Certified Hearing Aid Care, we evaluate your hearing in the following manner:
Hearing Aid Sales and Service
In cases where a hearing aid is recommended, we will help you select the best device to suit your needs, budget and insurance coverage. At Certified Hearing Aid Care, we can fit patients of all ages. We perform in-office repairs and manufacturer repairs of all models of hearing aids are available. We’ll even provide you with a FREE loaner hearing aid to use while your device is being repaired.
Types of Hearing Aids
Choosing the right hearing aid is a big decision. There are many options when it comes to style and manufacturer. At Certified Hearing Aid Care, we will explain all the options available to you and make recommendations based on your needs, lifestyle, budget and insurance coverage.
We sell and service all major brands of digital hearing aids. There are five basic types of hearing aids. Once your hearing is evaluated, we will help you choose the best for your needs.
Receiver in the Canal
Receiver in the Canal Hearing Aid – Receiver in the Canal Hearing Aids (RIC’s) are for mild to severe hearing loss and offer a comfortable open fit and sleek design. RIC’s are barely noticeable when worn. RIC’s look much like BTE’s, except the receiver is separated from the case and is located inside the ear canal, allowing the sound from the receiver to be transmitted directly to the eardrum. RIC’s are also available in a variety of color options
Behind the Ear
Behind the Ear – Behind the Ear Hearing Aids (BTE’s) are for moderate to severe hearing loss. Most parts are contained in a small plastic case that rests behind the ear; the case is connected to an earmold by a piece of clear tubing. BTE’s are often chosen for young children because they can accommodate various earmold types which need to be replaced as the child grows. In addition, BTE’s are easy to clean and are relatively sturdy. As with In the Ear Hearing Aids, Behind the Ear Hearing Aids are available in a variety of color options.
Swim Plugs & Noise Reducing Earplugs
Certified Hearing Aid Care offers custom fit hearing protection swimmer of all ages and noise reducing earplugs for people who work or play in loud noise environments. We can also custom-fit earmolds for hearing aids, iPods® and other electronic devices.
Floatable swim plugs are made of soft silicone for comfort and excellent sealing qualities. Soft to the touch and extremely tough and durable, they can be worn daily. Swim plugs are available in a wide variety of colors.
Hearing Assistive Devices
For patients who need extra hearing help, or where a hearing aid is not appropriate, Certified Hearing Aid Care offers amplifying assistive devices. Such devices will amplify the sound of televisions and telephones. We also provide other hearing assistive products such as wireless listening systems and sound alert devices.
