Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How can I tell if I need a hearing test?

    There are some simple rules of thumbs with regards to hearing tests. If you think you are experiencing hearing loss, it probably means you are and you can benefit by simply having one done. They’re simple and painless – at least you’d know for sure. It takes most people years to notice gradual hearing loss, so if you are starting to have problems hearing groups of people in conversation, or need to continue to turn the TV volume up – that’s a sign that you might benefit from hearing aids. Not all hearing loss is age related, although it is recommended that anyone over the age of 50 should get a baseline hearing evaluation done. Some hearing loss is due to blockage, or even a response to medication. Hearing loss is not something to hide or ignore. Your overall health is eventually going to be affected. Slow hearing loss can cause depression, avoidance, breakdown of relationships and an overall sense of helplessness. And it doesn’t have to be that way! Hearing aids have come a long way – the technology is amazing (and discreet.) Make an appointment to see our audiologist Dr. Hamila – you will not regret it.

  2. What is an Audiologist?

    Audiology is the study of hearing, balance, and ear related disorders. Audiologists are practitioners of Audiology, and they treat hearing loss of all kinds, tinnitus, dizziness or balance problems. Because they specialize in the ear , Audiologists use very specialized tools (and tests) in order to best discover the root cause of a problem. Generally these tests are non invasive and can be done in the comfort of the ENT specialist’s office.
    Audiologists work with people of all ages, and with the great advances in technology they are able to offer a wide range of solutions for hearing loss and other ear related health issues.

    ENT’s or otolaryngologists (oh/toe/lair/in/goll/oh/jist) is one of the oldest medical specialty in the United States. Otolaryngologists are physicians trained in the management and treatment of diseases or disorders of the ear, nose, throat (hence, “ENT”.) They also specialize in many head and neck disorders.
    ENT’s diagnose and treat diseases of the sinuses, mouth, throat, larynx and upper pharynx and structures of the neck and face. They treat both children and adults.

  4. Hearing aid are so small and expensive. Why do some cost more than others?

    Hearing losses are as different as fingerprints. With most patients, it entails the selection of a precise digital device specifically designed for that individual. Based on the patients specific needs or performance expectations, the cost may vary from the style or type selected. One does not have to get Bluetooth compatibility or the most expensive processors made.

  5. I have been told that I have nerve deafness. Do hearing aids help?

    Most hearing aid users suffer from this type of loss. If you are one of the estimated 40 million Americans who suffer from this kind of hearing loss, you should consult a hearing professional – help is available!
