As people are all different so are their hearing losses. We understand at Audiology and Hearing Aid Services the frustrations that hearing loss can bring and how important good communication is to stay active, healthy and happy.

“As the pandemic isolated all of us, her hearing loss was isolating her from her family, and she would go days without communicating. From the moment we put the devices on her, she could hear and started to cry. She could now enjoy her family again.” Dr. Susan Timna

APPROACH

Dr. CP: Our approach to care is to treat each patient as if they are a member of our own family. We create a hearing healthcare treatment plan for each patient based on their individual needs and concerns. We understand the frustration that comes with hearing loss, and we will do everything in our power to improve the hearing of our patients.

WHEN AND WHY

Our practice is unique. From the very first phone call to the Doctor of Audiology fitting the device, the goal is the same; to have a happy and hearing patient.

OUTSTANDING MOMENT

Dr. ST: There are just some days that you remember why you started in this profession. I remember having a patient brought in by her family that had a terminal illness who had lost most of her hearing. As the pandemic isolated all of us, her hearing loss was isolating her from her family, and she would go days without communicating. From the moment we put the devices on her, she could hear and started to cry. She could now enjoy her family again.

OUTSTANDING TECHNOLOGY

Our team, combined with cutting edge technology, means we have the ability to continue to be the best.

COVID-19 CHALLENGES

We never shut down during COVID-19, initially seeing patients in the parking lot in their cars. We stayed in touch through phone calls, emails and offered zoom sessions for care and function of patient’s devices. It gave us an opportunity to reflect and regroup to be more effective with our patient care than ever before. We also saw an increase in people struggling to hear since the mask took away the ability to lip read. Loss of aids due to mask wearing was also high so we were here to give them replacements and loaners.
