In today’s world of hearing healthcare, there are many providers to choose from. Our mission at HearMD is to address the individualized needs of each patient with compassionate, professional and progressive hearing health care. Our goal is to improve the quality of our patients lives and relationships through better hearing.
To accomplish this, we work closely with the physician team of Advanced ENT to determine the cause of your hearing loss and to determine if medical intervention is a viable treatment option. The medical assessment is an important part of a complete and comprehensive hearing evaluation. Obtaining medical clearance from one of our Ear, Nose and Throat physicians will ensure that your hearing loss cannot be remedied with medicine or surgery. In addition, because we work so closely with the physician team, any medical issues such as ear infections, itchy ears, cerumen (ear wax) management, dizziness or sudden changes in hearing sensitivity can be addressed in a timely manner.
We believe that a thorough hearing assessment is an important part of a complete health evaluation for all ages. Our professional and caring hearing healthcare staff at HearMD are experienced in diagnosing and treating all types and degrees of hearing loss. After a complete hearing evaluation, our staff will take the time to explain the test results and will discuss how the hearing loss might be affecting your daily life and relationships. We pride ourselves on providing accurate and up-to-date information about hearing and hearing loss so that our patients can make educated hearing healthcare decisions. We do this because in our practice, we place high value on patient education. By working together in this way, we will create realistic goals to improve your hearing.
One of the ways that we strive to help you hear better is by providing complete hearing aid dispensing services in all of our offices. Unlike many other hearing healthcare practices, our licensed hearing health professionals dispense hearing aids from many different reputable and well-known manufacturers. Therefore, we have the freedom to choose which product and/or manufacturer we feel is best for each individual patient’s hearing loss and lifestyle needs. In addition, our HearMD staff is always quick to evaluate and to dispense new hearing aid technology as it becomes available. We accomplish this by attending several continuing education programs every year. During these programs, we learn about the latest developments in hearing health care and hearing aid/assistive listening device technology so that we may then offer it to our patients.
It is important to remember that today’s hearing aids are complex medical devices, not just simple sound amplifiers as they were in the past. It takes knowledge and skill to fit them properly. That is why choosing an experienced, well-informed hearing care professional like those at HearMD is just as important as choosing the hearing aid(s) themselves. A state of the art hearing aid(s) or assistive listening device will not benefit you as greatly or live up to your expectations if it is not fit and programmed properly for your hearing loss and listening needs by an experienced professional.
After you purchase hearing aids at HearMD, we continue to provide top-quality hearing healthcare by including our Premium Care Plan as part of every hearing aid fitting. As part of our ongoing commitment to your hearing health, we include our Premium Care Plan at no charge in order to provide you with exceptional worry-free hearing aid care for 5 years from the date of purchase. The Premium Care Plan includes: free in-office Clean & Check maintenance visits every twelve months for 5 years and free batteries dispensed in twelve-month supply quantities at the end of your trial period (and when you return for your annual Clean & Check maintenance visits) for 5 years. The Premium Care Plan also includes (if applicable) tone hooks and tubing changes for Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids, in-office ear mold and shell modifications, hearing aid reprogramming following manufacturer’s repair and wax filters.
So if you or someone you know is suffering from hearing loss, let the physicians of Advanced ENT and the audiologists and hearing aid dispensers of HearMD help you begin your journey to better hearing for better living.
