The Taylor Listening Center specializes in providing hearing aid services. If you already own hearing aids, please call to see if we work with that particular hearing aid manufacturer.
Services we offer:
Hearing Aid Consultation
Not sure if a hearing aid is right for you? Let us test your hearing and see if you are a candidate. Based on your lifestyle and hearing loss, hearing aids will be recommended. Demo a pair of hearing aids to find out first-hand what the aids feel like and sound like. If you decide to proceed with the selected devices, a hearing aid fitting is scheduled at the patient’s convenience.
Hearing Aid Fitting
The next step is the actual hearing aid fitting. Hearing aids are digitally programmed using the results gathered from the diagnostic hearing test. Real Ear measurements are taken to determine the actual sound delivered at the level of the ear drum from the hearing aid by inserting a thin microphone in the ear canal. After you approve the sound quality and comfort of the aids, information is provided so you can care for the aids independently. Battery changing is practiced and cleaning protocols are discussed.
At the conclusion of the session, you are taught how to insert and remove the aids and also how to manipulate any controls on the aids. After all questions are answered, we will schedule a follow-up for one to two weeks. All patients are given a 45 day adjustment period. If the patient decides to return the hearing aid during this adjustment period, a full refund will be given minus a fitting fee.
Hearing Aid Check and Adjustments
We recommend a Hearing Aid Check every 3-4 months in order to insure the aid is working appropriately and also for a thorough cleaning. These checks are at no cost to the patient for the life of the hearing aid. A repeat hearing test will be administered at least once a year to check for change in hearing sensitivity. If a change is documented, the hearing aids are adjusted to compensate for the loss.
Hearing Aid Troubleshooting
When problems arise with the hearing aids, an appointment can be scheduled within a quick time frame. Most hearing aid related problems can be fixed in the office. If the aid needs to be sent back to the manufacturer, a loaner hearing aid will be provided if requested. Troubleshooting is no cost for patients within their service warranty.
