You must go through a battery of hearing tests before a treatment plan for hearing loss can be created. These examinations are carried out to establish the type and degree of your hearing loss. Hearing tests include:

Hearing Evaluations

You must go through a battery of hearing tests before a treatment plan for hearing loss can be created. These examinations are carried out to establish the type and degree of your hearing loss. Hearing tests include:

  • An ocular inspection of your ears with a video otoscope to see if there is ear wax obstructing your canal,
  • Testing the “threshold” at which you can hear different frequencies of sounds,
  • Assessing the volume at which you can detect and understand speech,
  • Performing a test to see how well you hear in a noisy environment.

Your lifestyle will also be considered to ensure that any other variables that may be causing your hearing loss can be covered. Dr. Vasile will work with you to create a treatment plan based on the hearing test results. The results might indicate that hearing aids are your best choice for your hearing concerns. Hearing Health & Wellness Center has a wide selection of the best hearing aids to choose from.

Hearing Aid Services

The technology used in hearing aids is always improving, making them a popular method of treating hearing loss. With today’s innovations in technology, you can choose from a wide variety of hearing aids to suit your specific requirements. The majority of hearing aids are designed to be discreet and undetectable, and all are made to be both comfortable and functional.

Choosing the best hearing device for you can be challenging, especially with all the available styles, technology, and models available. At Hearing Health & Wellness Center, we are committed to making hearing aid selection an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

Tinnitus Care

Do you occasionally notice a ringing in your ears? Does this sound have an adverse effect on your life or your job? If so, you may suffer from tinnitus. Tinnitus can be brought on by several types of hearing loss or other medical conditions. In certain situations, the symptoms brought about by tinnitus are so disturbing that they interfere with daily tasks. We offer tinnitus evaluations at Hearing Health & Wellness Center.

Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are the most common hearing solutions available. These devices are designed for various levels of hearing loss, from mild to profound. Hearing Health & Wellness Center carries the best hearing aid brands available including Phonak, Oticon, ReSound, Widex, and Starkey. Our clinic also offers hearing aid repair and maintenance for the aforementioned hearing manufacturers along with Unitron and Signia hearing aids.

Custom Ear Protection

Earmolds are a useful defense against tinnitus and future hearing loss. Musicians, industrial workers who work around loud noises, motorcyclists who want to reduce wind noise, and people who need a quiet environment while sleeping, are just some of the many individuals who can greatly benefit from various types of earmolds.

Other Solutions

Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) are tools used with or without hearing aids, bone-anchored implants, and cochlear implants to enhance the accessibility of sounds for people with various degrees of hearing problems. The most popular option for assistive listening among consumers is loops because they are the easiest to use. Designed to be simple and covert, hearing loops enable you to enjoy clear, personalized sound directly to your ears.



Frequently Asked Questions

Basically, yes. Through self-referral, you are not obliged to see a physician or practice nurse before making an appointment with an audiologist. The majority, if not all, third party payers will need a referral, even though neither state licensure nor an audiologist’s ethics necessitate one. It is best to confirm the details of the referral with the specific payer. Payers, however, are generally reasonable and permit a broad recommendation, as is the case with Medicare. Medicare accepts written correspondence signed by the treating practitioner or his or her office, phone calls from the practitioner or his or her office, or emails from the practitioner or his or her office (section 80.6.1 of Chapter 15 of the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual). 
Presently, a physician referral is required for all diagnostic audiological treatments covered by Medicare; nevertheless, the main factor affecting payment is the reason for the test. Medicare will pay for medically appropriate and required procedures to diagnose and treat a patient’s illness. For each service that is invoiced, the clinician is required to document in the medical record the precise sign, symptom, or medical complaint that prompted the service.
A hearing aid specialist can perform a simple hearing evaluation on you and fit you with a hearing aid. A wider range of hearing, balance, and related audiological problems can be assessed and diagnosed by audiologists. The medical experts responsible for identifying the underlying cause of hearing loss are audiologists since they are trained in the pathology of hearing loss. Contrarily, a hearing aid specialist is only concerned with conducting hearing tests to fit hearing aids.
Professionals who test hearing and provide aftercare for hearing aids are known as hearing aid dispensers (HADs). Hearing aid dispensers must be licensed and certified in order to use hearing technology. A wider variety of hearing and balance problems can be assessed and diagnosed by audiologists. For treatments that are more closely tied to medicine, such as balance issues, Ear wax, and hearing loss brought about by exposure to noise, an audiologist may be more appropriate. Both professionals are competent in fitting and adjusting hearing aids as well as performing cleaning, maintenance, and repairs.
Analysis tests are primarily carried out by audiologists to assess a patient’s hearing capacity. Audiologists can identify and treat hearing loss with hearing aids and other devices. They devote a lot of effort to teaching patients and their families better communication and hearing-care techniques. Audiologists can also diagnose and handle patients who have issues with hearing and balance, and can carry out professional Ear wax removal.
Hearing aids that are purchased on the cheap are not nearly as effective as those that are fitted and maintained by a qualified hearing healthcare professional. The sophisticated noise filters and abrupt noise mitigation capabilities of more expensive versions are absent from inexpensive hearing aids. In fact, inexpensive hearing aids have the ability to produce loud noises that can further harm your hearing.
Numerous factors can lead to hearing loss, so it’s crucial to obtain a thorough hearing evaluation to choose the most effective course of action. Regular exposure to excessively loud noises can increase one’s susceptibility to hearing loss over time. As a person gets older, age-related hearing loss is expected to happen gradually. Hearing loss may also result from taking certain treatments or medications.
Attempting to clean out your ears using cotton swabs could further impact wax, while pointy objects can cause injuries to your ear canal. To avoid damaging delicate ear parts, we strongly advise professional Ear wax removal to remove wax buildup rather than using do-it-yourself methods. Professional ear wax removal is quick and generally painless. Audiologists have the appropriate tools and methods to ensure that your ears are safe during the procedure.
