Auditory Processing Disorders (APD)
Auditory processing disorder is also known as APD and CAPD. It is a condition that makes it hard for the brain to coordinate information that comes from the ears. The side effects caused by ADP disrupts daily life on a personal and professional level. Early treatment is important to get the best outcome for sufferers of the condition.
Auditory Brainstem Response Testing
To get a clear picture of how healthy the inner ear is, an auditory brainstem response test is required. The cochlea and the brain pathways share a lot of data between one another. Auditory brainstem response testing helps patients that have hearing loss due to complications in the brain or the brain pathway.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
The hearing aid evaluation requires previous medical information for the best accuracy. Our audiologist will test for a multitude of issues that could be impacting your hearing. Multiple tests are performed, including speech, ABR, bone/air conduction and more. The results of the tests will help determine the best way to proceed with treatment.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
When the device returns after the initial programming, the hearing aid fitting takes place. This is a big step for first-time patients, and is vital for collecting data. With the help of live speech mapping technology, the hearing aid is fine-tuned to an individual’s hearing preferences. Questions about reliability, performance and usage are all answered during the hearing aid fitting.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Minor problems with hearing aids can often be solved by the wearer with some simple troubleshooting. Regular cleaning and maintenance can help you avoid many of these common device issues. When it is beyond the scope of this task, onsite repairs become essential. Anything that can’t be handled in office is sent off to the manufacturer. During this waiting period, temporary hearing devices are discussed and provided.

Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus describes the condition that causes you to hear whistling, hissing, ringing or other sounds in their ears. These are sounds only the individual can hear, so the experience is a bit jarring. The two types of tinnitus are subjective and objective. There are many causes of the condition, but there also exists several treatments. An initial hearing evaluation will help find the cause and the best course of treatment.
