Discover audiology incorporates all of your hearing healthcare needs. From the initial evaluation appointment to follow-up care, Dr. Marcus strives to educate every patient on the importance of hearing healthcare and how staying connected is a crucial part of our everyday lives.
Hearing evaluations help determine if a hearing loss is present. Depending on the type and severity of the loss, the audiologist will decide if medical intervention or if treatment with hearing technology is needed.
Dr. Ashley Marcus will review the results in detail to form a treatment plan based on each patient’s specific needs.
A complete diagnostic audiologic evaluation includes pure tone air and bone conduction testing, and speech testing.
Hearing Aid Fittings
Hearing aid fittings typically take about 1 hour. Dr. Marcus ensures that the physical fit is appropriate and the feel of the devices are comfortable. Then the patient is taught how to clean, maintain, and troubleshoot the devices.
Dr. Marcus programs each hearing device to be tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Follow-up visits are typically scheduled every 2 weeks while the patient is in the adjustment period.
Hearing Aid Consultation
Once the audiologic evaluation is complete, and hearing loss is confirmed without indication that medical intervention will improve your hearing health.
Hearing devices are chosen based on the configuration of the patient's hearing loss, the patient's lifestyle, manual dexterity, personal preferences, budget, and size and shape of the patient's ears.
Hearing Aid Maintenance & Repairs
Hearing aid clean and checks are a routine part of hearing aid maintenance. Routine check ups are recommended every 4-6 months to make sure your devices are performing optimally. For hearing aid repairs, Dr. Marcus is able to troubleshoot and see if your device(s) can be fixed in the office. If not, the device(s) can be sent to the manufacturer to be repaired.
Tinnitus Evaluations & Treatment
Dr. Marcus will ask in depth questions and may even have the patient fill out a tinnitus questionnaire to help form a treatment plan. Dr. Marcus will counsel each patient and present different options to help manage and address concerns.
