Hearing Care Services
Hearing loss is a common medical problem throughout the country. While the most common cause is degeneration of ear structures due to aging, there are many other causes and the extent of loss is unique to the individual. Hearing loss can be accurately measured and treated.
NuTech Health & Hearing, PLLC offers professional hearing services, including hearing evaluations, hearing aids and devices, and more. Here are some services we provide:
Earwax buildup is a concern if it affects your hearing. Cerumen, or earwax, is a natural thick substance that protects your ears, collecting dust and small debris that could enter the middle ear. If cerumen does not clear naturally, we can remove it and also help with a product to use at home. Patients should never try to clear cerumen with blunt objects. We can assist with the correct methods for removing earwax.
For most patients, the first step toward better hearing is taking a hearing test. This is a quick and painless test, or series of evaluations, in a soundproof room. The patient wears earphones, and a hearing specialist sends sounds and words to the earphones at various pitches and volume. The results are registered on a computer.
Many people who begin to lose their hearing are concerned about understanding speech, particularly in loud environments like crowds. The hearing test will pinpoint the best strategy to pursue for better hearing.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
One question people have concerning their hearing is whether they will need a hearing aid. Hearing aids are tiny marvels of technology. The hearing specialists at NuTech will use your hearing test and other factors to supply precisely the right instrument for you.
The choice of hearing aid depends on the severity of hearing loss and other factors. Precise measurements of your ability to hear in several environments will help us select the right size and type of device.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
If you need one or two hearing aids, we have a wide variety to choose from. Each device is custom fit: some are tiny and fit completely inside the ear while others have a speaker that goes in the ear canal. Whatever the choice, we fit every patient individually.
Some hearing aids have batteries that might be difficult to apply and remove; some are now rechargeable, which eliminates this problem. We show you how to use, adjust and maintain your hearing aid to keep it functioning correctly. We are just a phone call away if you have any questions.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Hearing aids have delicate electronic parts that include small wires. They might break and need repairs. We service and repair all types of hearing aids. Occasionally we will need to send a device to an authorized repair center. You can be sure that repairs are done correctly and efficiently.
When you receive your new hearing aid, our staff will show you how to clean and maintain the device. If you need further help, we will be glad to clean it and show you the methods.
