We Offer a Variety of Hearing Services to Help Improve Your Hearing
Hearing Solutions LLC understands how important it is to maintain healthy hearing so you can continue to communicate with your loved ones, or enjoy your music, movies, or other sounds. We are here to help you hear better so you can get the most out of life. We offer comprehensive hearing tests. When you arrive for your hearing exam, our front office staff will greet you and ask you to fill out several forms.
When your hearing exam begins, we will review key personal information with you and ask you a few questions to discover the specific types of environments where you may be experiencing hearing challenges. We will look into your ears with an otoscope, to examine the ear canal and the eardrum, and/or perform an Audiometric test.
The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech, and if hearing aids are necessary or needed.
Your Hearing Test Results
We will record the results of your hearing test on a form called an audiogram, which we will review with you. The audiogram reflects your hearing loss in frequencies and decibels. We will show you the type, pattern, and degree of hearing loss, as well as the percentage of normal conversational speech that you are still able to hear. We will then relate these results to your concerns about your hearing. Next, we will consider treatment solutions, including if you will need a hearing aid, and discuss them with you.
Getting the Most From Your Hearing Aids
There are three things you can do to help us with any adjustment needs to get the maximum benefits from your hearing aid:
- Wear your hearing aids as much as possible. The more you wear them, the more you will get used to them and, most importantly, the more information you will have to tell us so we can make adjustments.
- Write down the situations where you feel you aren’t hearing your best so we can reprogram the device to work better there.
- Be patient. Most of the time we can help you get more from your hearing aid, but it may take two or three visits to make this happen.
All hearing aids come with an adjustment or trial period, typically 35 – 45 days for an exchange. During this time, you are welcome to visit us for any necessary fitting issues. If you are not satisfied, you can return your hearing aids during the trial period for a refund minus a small fitting/restocking fee.
Hearing Aid Repair
If you suspect your hearing aid needs repair or cleaning beyond what you do at home, contact us. We will check your hearing aid to ensure it is working properly. Periodically adjusting your hearing aid, regular cleanings and ongoing counseling are vital to the longevity of your hearing aid, and better hearing for you.

We will do a complete hearing screening and review your medical history. We will determine the most likely cause of your tinnitus and discuss treatment options with you. Some of the treatments for Tinnitus are:
You’d be surprised how often the sensation of ringing in the ears is caused by a buildup of earwax (cerumen) against the eardrum. We can safely remove earwax and restore your normal hearing.
If our assessment indicates that medical issues other than hearing loss may be behind the tinnitus, we will refer you to a physician to complete the diagnosis and treat the underlying condition.
Hearing aids can enhance hearing and mask or cover up the tinnitus. For most patients with tinnitus, they can provide partial or temporary relief.
Some people choose to experiment with alternative treatments such as acupuncture, homeopathy, or herbal remedies such as ginkgo biloba.
These small electronic devices, worn in the ear and similar to hearing aids, produce low-level white noise that masks or covers up the tinnitus. Some can be individually programmed to mask the specific frequencies of the tinnitus you experience.
