Our passion is helping smart people like you in Louisville, KY — people who want to stay active and engaged — rediscover hearing clearly and without strain. Our satisfaction comes from the joy our patients feel when they hear better and can once again connect with friends, family, and the world around them. Each person’s hearing loss, listening needs and preferences are different. You can count on our professionals to take the time necessary to understand your concerns.
We’ll evaluate your hearing to determine whether or not you have hearing loss, what the likely causes are, the degree and type of hearing loss and whether the loss exists in one or both ears.
If testing reveals that you do have hearing loss, we offer a wide range of solutions. It is important to remember that there is no such thing as “one size fits all.”
Already have hearing aids but aren’t hearing as well as you’d like?
Your hearing loss may have changed, or your hearing aids may simply need adjusting. Call or text us and make an appointment for a thorough hearing evaluation.
Hearing Aid Fitting
If hearing aids are the solution for you, we want you to get the maximum benefit from wearing them. Hearing aids work extremely well when they are fitted to your ears and adjusted for your hearing needs and preferences.
Our hearing professionals will check that your hearing aids are comfortable and program them. Then we’ll check your hearing with the hearing aids in place. Today’s hearing aids can be fine tuned to help you hear in a variety of environments, including restaurants, crowds and other difficult listening situations. Finally, we’ll show you the advanced features of your new hearing aids and how to care for them.
Tinnitus (tin-NY-tus) is a common condition where a person experiences a ringing, rushing or buzzing in the ears. Our professionals can help recommend a course of action to deal with this persistent problem.
A careful review of your health history along with audiometric testing will identify the right tinnitus treatment, whether it is hearing aids, maskers, drug therapy, or allergy treatment. Tinnitus therapy can quiet the noise in your ears and may be right for you.
Ear Wax Management
Many people are surprised to learn that a buildup of earwax can cause hearing problems. Sometimes the ear produces too much wax which can become impacted and press against the eardrum. This can impair the ability to hear. We can safely remove impacted earwax, something you should not attempt at home.
Hearing Aid Repair
If you suspect your hearing aids need repair or cleaning beyond what you do at home, call or text us. We can make simple repairs in our office and will send more severely damaged hearing aids to the manufacturers for repair. While your hearing aid is being repaired, our loaner service can provide you with a temporary hearing aid.
It pays to protect yourself from occupational hearing loss and hearing problems caused by exposure to loud music, motors and gunshots. The potential damage to your hearing could be severe and could result in irreversible hearing loss. We can help!
For some people, simply “turning up” the sound in the ear won’t work because they have conductive hearing loss or other issues that interfere with the way the ear hears.
Bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHA) skip past the ear canal and middle ear and use bone conduction to transmit sound right to the cochlea. They can be used for people who have issues with the middle ear or who have difficulty wearing traditional hearing aids.
