Helping You to Hear Better

Speech-Language & Hearing Associates can assess, diagnose, and treat hearing loss based on site of lesion tests and the measures of speech recognition and intelligibility. Our talented ancillary medical professionals provide the type of comprehensive testing, therapies, and treatments you’d expect from one of the best centers in the industry – all in an effort to improve our patients overall auditory capabilities. These treatments include:

Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatments:

Neuromonics Oasis is a 6 to 8-month treatment program designed to reduce the disturbing effects of tinnitus through desensitization and neural plasticity. This program includes the oasis and FDA-approved, customized, medical device for tinnitus relief, and has been proven to provide significant benefit as a result of 15 years of research and clinical practice.

Our staff begins with a two-hour diagnostic assessment, including basic and high frequency audiometry, otoacoustic emission measures of cochlear hair cell function, and additional measures to measure the pitch and loudness of your tinnitus and the amount of sound required to mask it. Other treatment options are available to meet your need for relief and your budget, including Neuromonics Haven & Sanctionary devices and hearing aid products.

Hearing Evaluations:

Speech-Language & Hearing Associates performs video otoscopy to check the status of the ear canal and the tympanic membrane. We then obtain thresholds for pure tones and speech, and measures of intelligibility and clarity at various conversational levels. We make sure to also check middle ear function with tympanometry and acoustic reflexes and administer site of lesion tests such as otoacoustic emissions and acoustic reflex decay.

Central Auditory Processing (CAP) Evaluations:

We conduct a comprehensive evaluation of each patient’s listening skills, which can include dichotic listening, binaural integration, temporal processing, and degraded speech. Our staff establishes a profile of listening strengths and weaknesses and makes specific recommendations for remediation.

Serial Tympanometry:

We ensure children and adults with active middle ear pathologies are monitored to their resolution, and we work closely with Primary Care Physicians (PCP's) and Ear Nose & Throat (ENT) Personnel.

Ototoxicity Monitoring:

Our talented medical experts at Speech-Language & Hearing Associates provide serial basic and high-frequency audiometry and otoacoustic emission measurements for patients taking ototoxic medications. This helps to detect and manage changes in hearing sensitivity. We work closely with Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) and Oncologists as well to ensure the most streamlined care.

Hearing Aid Fittings:

One of the best things about working with us here at Speech-Language & Hearing Associates is that we provide free hearing aid consultation and local service. We offer an extensive line of hearing aid products, including hearing aids from Starkey®, Oticon®, Widex®, Phonak® and Sonic Innovations®, and can service them as well. We have many satisfied customers.

Hearing Aid Maintenance:

Unlike a great majority of hearing aid providers in our area, Speech-Language & Hearing Associates provides ear mold cleaning, battery replacement programs, periodic hearing aid reprogramming, and hearing aid repairs.
