Come see us for all your hearing needs including assistive listening devices, hearing aid accessories and batteries.
Diagnostic Hearing Evaluation
A comprehensive hearing evaluation is the first step in determining if you have a hearing impairment. Our hearing evaluation process involves an interview to help us understand the hearing challenges and how it impacts your lifestyle. We also identify the contributing factors.
An otoscopy examination is performed. This procedure involves looking into your ear with an otoscope to determine if there are any obstructions or visible damage. A comprehensive hearing test (air conduction, bone conduction and speech testing) is done to help us identify if there is a hearing loss and which part of the ear is affected. We ensure that all the information is shared with you and your loved ones at the appointment. We will also discuss treatment options.
When hearing tests are required for job applications or for drivers license renewals, our audiologists are able to complete this assessment in a timely manner. This exam is slightly less detailed than the diagnostic test and the audiologist will complete all of the required procedures tailored for each application form.
A hearing screening is a quick test to determine if a hearing loss is present or not. If a hearing loss is suspected, during the screening, our audiologist will recommend a full diagnostic evaluation for further investigation.
Pediatric Hearing Test
If you suspect that your child has hearing loss, or the school has requested a hearing test, our qualified audiologists at Advanced Hearing Solutions have the right equipment and testing procedures for children four years and older. When hearing loss is detected early on in the life of your child, the appropriate recommendations and treatment can be provided to enhance your child's development.
Hearing Aid Fittings
As an independent hearing clinic, our audiologists pride themselves in selecting the most appropriate hearing aids from leading manufacturers to suit your audiological needs. We provide a comprehensive no-obligation trial period to ensure success with your hearing aids. Our customer care services cover cleaning, checking and reprogramming the hearing aids as well as conducting regular hearing exams. We also provide you any assistance you may need along the way to help preserve your hearing wellness and keep your hearing aids working optimally.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Is your hearing aid not functioning the way it used to? Bring it to us. As an independent hearing clinic, Advanced Hearing Solutions Inc. provides both in-house and out-of-office repairs for most hearing aids across brands, makes and models.
One of the most important aspects of wearing hearing aids is comfort. Our audiologists are very skilled at taking precise earmold impressions and use the most current materials to ensure a comfortable fit every time.
