Our passion is helping smart people like you in Pittsburgh, PA — people who want to stay active and engaged — rediscover hearing clearly and without strain. Our satisfaction comes from the joy our patients feel when they hear better and can once again connect with friends, family, and the world around them. Each person’s hearing loss, listening needs and preferences are different. You can count on our professionals to take the time necessary to understand your concerns.
We’ll evaluate your hearing to determine whether or not you have hearing loss, what the likely causes are, the degree and type of hearing loss and whether the loss exists in one or both ears.
If testing reveals that you do have hearing loss, we offer a wide range of solutions. It is important to remember that there is no such thing as “one size fits all.”
Already have hearing aids but aren’t hearing as well as you’d like?
Your hearing loss may have changed, or your hearing aids may simply need adjusting. Call us and make an appointment for a thorough hearing evaluation.
Hearing Aid Fitting
If hearing aids are the solution for you, we want you to get the maximum benefit from wearing them. Hearing aids work extremely well when they are fitted to your ears and adjusted for your hearing needs and preferences.
Our hearing professionals will check that your hearing aids are comfortable and program them. Then we’ll check your hearing with the hearing aids in place. Today’s hearing aids can be fine tuned to help you hear in a variety of environments, including restaurants, crowds and other difficult listening situations. Finally, we’ll show you the advanced features of your new hearing aids and how to care for them.
Tinnitus (tin-NY-tus) is a common condition where a person experiences a ringing, rushing or buzzing in the ears. Our professionals can help recommend a course of action to deal with this persistent problem.
A careful review of your health history along with audiometric testing will identify the right tinnitus treatment, whether it is hearing aids, maskers, drug therapy, or allergy treatment. Tinnitus therapy can quiet the noise in your ears and may be right for you.
People who have problems with balance often feel dizzy or unsteady (regardless of whether they are standing, lying down or sitting) because of problems within the inner ear.
Diagnosis of a balance disorder is difficult and requires the services of a trained audiologist. There are many potential causes—including medical conditions and medications. Balance testing by our qualified audiologist will provide a good idea of what is wrong and if we can fix your balance disorder or dizziness problems.
Ear Wax Management
Many people are surprised to learn that a buildup of earwax can cause hearing problems. Sometimes the ear produces too much wax which can become impacted and press against the eardrum. This can impair the ability to hear. We can safely remove impacted earwax, something you should not attempt at home.
