Read on to learn more about our range of hearing loss services and how we can help you regain your hearing and enhance your overall quality of life.

Comprehensive Hearing Evaluations:

At Atreus Medical, we offer comprehensive hearing evaluations to accurately assess the extent and nature of your hearing loss. Our experienced audiologists utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to conduct thorough assessments, including pure-tone audiometry which measures up to 10 different frequencies per ear, speech clarity testing, and tympanometry. These evaluations provide valuable insights into the specific nature of your hearing loss, enabling us to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to your needs. We also focus on doing Speech in Noise testing to help verify how the brain is functioning. This is the most important test that we do. Why? At Atreus, we place great importance on the relationship between brain function and hearing. Recent studies have revealed that 40% of dementia cases are linked to hearing loss.

Hearing Aid Fitting and Selection:

If hearing aids are recommended, our audiology specialists will guide you through the process of selecting and fitting the most appropriate devices for your unique hearing needs. We choose hearing aids based on additional testing with the hearing aids to verify that we are changing the way you hear and, more importantly, how the brain is processing speech clarity. The patient has another hearing test wearing the hearing aids in the booth with background noise so we know how much better we are actually helping our patients.

We offer a wide range of hearing aid options from leading manufacturers, ensuring you receive the best technology available for your specific needs. Our team will consider your lifestyle, preferences, and budget to find the perfect fit, maximizing your hearing improvement and comfort.

Tinnitus Evaluation and Management:

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, can be a distressing condition. At Atreus Hearing Center, our audiology experts provide comprehensive evaluations to determine the underlying causes and develop personalized management plans. We focus on 3 factors when it comes to tinnitus testing – # 1 Find the frequency/frequencies of the tinnitus, # 2 find the loudness of the tinnitus, and # 3 the general location of the tinnitus. We take our time to figure this out and then we use devices to determine if we can match the same pitch and loudness of the tinnitus to then cancel the tinnitus out. We offer counseling, sound therapy, and specialized devices to help alleviate the symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Assistive Listening Devices:

In addition to hearing aids, we offer a range of assistive listening devices (ALDs) designed to enhance communication in various environments. ALDs include devices such as captioned telephones, personal amplifiers, and Bluetooth-enabled accessories. Our audiology specialists will help you select the most appropriate ALDs to complement your hearing aids and improve your listening experience.

Custom Ear Protection:

Protecting your hearing is crucial, especially in noisy environments or when engaging in activities such as music concerts or shooting sports. At Atreus Medical, we provide custom ear protection solutions, including musician’s earplugs, swim plugs, and noise-canceling devices. Our customized solutions offer superior comfort, fit, and protection, helping to preserve your hearing for years to come.
