The hearing services provided by the trained audiologists at Augusta Hearing and Balance go far beyond hearing tests and hearing aid fittings. Our hearing tests are comprehensive to pinpoint exactly the type of hearing loss you’re experiencing and the cause. Our hearing aid fittings are customized to ensure the best sound and most comfortable fit.
We also offer hearing aid repair, maintenance, tinnitus management and more. See all of our available services below and contact us to set up your hearing consultation.
What to Expect:
Our hearing tests begin with a review of your medical history and short conversation with you about the types of environments and situations where you may be experiencing hearing loss and hearing problems.
We use an instrument called an otoscope which is a special instrument that allows us to see into the ear canal and eardrum.
There are three specific hearing tests we may use in an effort to diagnose how to best resolve your hearing issue.
All the hearing aids at Augusta Hearing and Balance are 100% digital, but they are not one size fits all. The key to hearing aid success is finding the right fit. We take the time to offer a customized fitting and we will teach you proper care of your new hearing device. The advantage of working with the professionals at Augusta Hearing and Balance is that we program your hearing device based on your specific hearing test results. This ensures you will get the best sound possible so you can hear clearly again.
We use a specialized hearing aid fitting process to ensure you receive the best sound possible. Once you are fitted, we are still here for follow up care. We will have you return for follow up visits so we can fine tune your hearing aids. We assess how your hearing device is working and make adjustments to improve hearing.
Today’s technology is so advanced and highly-programmable one small change can make a huge difference in your hearing. We’re here to make sure your device is comfortable and you can hear clearly. With a little bit of patience, you’ll be amazed with the final results.
The staff at Augusta Hearing and Balance will teach you how to care for and clean your hearing device at home but it’s possible you may run into a situation where your hearing aid needs repair beyond what you normally do at home.
If you’re experiencing feedback, interference, discomfort, distortion or if you see signs of damage, bring your hearing aid to us. We can repair all brands even if you didn’t get your hearing aid from us. Most repairs can be done quickly in our office. There are times we may need to send your device out for special repairs. If available, we are happy to supply you with a temporary loaner hearing aid.
Tinnitus, caused by a variety of sources including exposure to loud noise, medications, allergies, and more, is a persistent ringing, rushing, or buzzing in the ears. While it won’t cause deafness, it may affect and distract you during activities. Our tinnitus management options include hearing aids and tinnitus maskers. Each one can quiet the noise in your ears and improve your daily life.
