Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
Poor communication is one of the side effects of hearing loss. For most people, this leads to a devastating change in their daily lives. Hearing solutions are available from Davis Audiology to help patients suffering from compromised communication negatively impacting their quality of life. When your communication needs assessment is complete, a treatment plan is recommended by your Doctor of Audiology. This will begin your hearing healthcare journey to reconnecting you with family and friends as Davis Audiology partners with you to ensure you Hear Your World.
Cochlear Implant Evaluation & Mapping
Earwax (cerumen) is naturally created by the body to protect the ears. When the body makes too much earwax without getting rid of the excess, blockages occur. Removing wax is a non-surgical procedure handled with irrigation, a curette or home removal kits.
Otoscopy, pure tone air and bone conduction audiometry, speech testing in quiet and noise, and impedance testing are some of the tests used to evaluate hearing loss. They test the inner, middle and outer ear for any hearing related problems. The accuracy of the case history is important for administering the appropriate tests as the type of tests used depend on patient history and current hearing issues.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
A hearing aid evaluation is recommended for patients that have hearing loss. Once the selected hearing tests are finished, the doctor of audiology will explain the extent of hearing loss in both ears and provide their professional recommendations via your communication needs assessment. Your doctor of audiology will educate you on the device recommended in your treatment plan and let you listen to the hearing instruments in an in-office demonstration.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
During the hearing aid fitting, patients will learn all of the important facts about their device. This includes maintenance, features, warranty information and available apps. Real ear measurements are used to fine-tune programming of the hearing aids during the hearing aid fitting and follow-up process.
Hearing Aid Maintenance and Repair
Some basic troubleshooting of hearing aids can be resolved at home with information and counseling provided by your audiologist. If this is unsuccessful in resolving your issue, then an in-office visit can handle many repairs. Davis Audiology has daily walk-in hours Monday- Friday from 11:00-11:45 a.m. at each of our office locations to assist with hearing aid repair and cleanings (hearing aid programming is not available at this time). Walk-in hours are complimentary for patients who purchased their devices at Davis Audiology as part of their Lifetime Service Plan. Repairs that cannot be handled on-site are sent to the manufacturer for prompt repair. You will be advised if there will be a charge for repairs prior to the service being performed. Davis Audiology is pleased to have loaner hearing devices available for patients as necessary when they will be without their devices due to hearing aid repair.
Tinnitus affects the personal and professional lives of millions worldwide. Following an FDA-approved tinnitus treatment involves multiple options like sound therapy, behavioral therapy and hearing aids. Although tinnitus isn’t life-threatening, the symptoms can be tied to more serious conditions. Currently, there is no cure for tinnitus. Long-term treatment options exist to help patients deal with tinnitus even when it’s at its worst. At Davis Audiology, our Doctors of Audiology are expertly trained to assist patients suffering from tinnitus.
