Karen Glickman, our audiologist, utilizes the latest technologies and their extensive experience to practice quality care.

Hearing Tests

Thoroughly examining hearing health is essential to identifying hearing loss, needs, and the best course of treatment. Karen takes the time to comprehensively assess your hearing capacities in each ear. This process starts with a consultation where we discuss your symptoms, hearing health history, concerns, and expectations as well as goals for treatment. This is followed by testing your hearing which can involve a few different types of hearing tests.

A common test we use is known as pure tone audiometry testing. This involves wearing headphones as sound is played at different frequencies. Guided by Karen, you will be asked to indicate what you can hear by raising your hand or pressing a button. Another type of test which is similar involves doing the same thing but with speech that is audibly communicated rather than sounds. Known as speech testing, this will assess the speech you can hear in both quiet and noisy environments.

Hearing Aid Consultations & Fittings

Following your hearing test, Karen will review your test results to determine whether hearing aids would be recommended as the next step. The audiogram, a visual representation of your hearing abilities, is a graph that displays at various pitches or frequencies the softest sounds that a person can hear. The closer the marks are to the top of the graph, the softer the sounds people can hear. The various degrees of hearing loss are shown where the patient's results fall on the audiogram.

If the findings do not mean anything to you at first, don't worry! Karen will go through your results with you. If a hearing loss is detected, she will provide you with treatment options best suited to your needs. Our primary focus is to ensure that you will hear at your best. As an independently-owned hearing practice, Karen will recommend the best devices for our specific hearing needs.

Additionally, we also offer pediatric audiology services. Treating hearing loss will encourage your child to grow up without having to face developmental delays so that they can be happy and safe, achieve their goals, and lead positive and fulfilling lives. We assess the existence and extent of hearing impairment through our hearing tests and recommend treatments that will allow your child to continue to grow and develop naturally.

Hearing Aid Repairs

Hearing aids quickly become essential to navigating daily life. These durable devices are designed to last for several years. But similar to most items we regularly use, hearing aids can be impacted by the effects of being worn daily in all types of environments. It is common to need repair work over time. We understand that your hearing aids not performing optimally can interfere with communication, spending time with others, and enjoying a range of activities.

That’s why our practice offers in-house repairs which allow us to conveniently and promptly attend to your hearing aid. Common repairs include replacing tubing, thoroughly cleaning the device to address clogged components, and fixing the battery compartment door.

Custom Hearing Protection

Our practice also offers custom hearing protection. Continuing to protect your hearing, whether you have been diagnosed with hearing loss or not, is important. Everyday noise exposure can take a toll on hearing, contributing to the development of noise-induced hearing loss. The World Health Organization estimates that over 1 billion people globally are facing an increased risk of developing noise-induced hearing loss as a result of noise exposure from electronic devices as well as in social settings.

One of the most effective ways to protect your hearing health from excessive noise exposure is by wearing hearing protection. This can include headphones, earmuffs, earbuds, etc. which offer a protective barrier for the ears. Custom hearing protection provides the maximum amount of protection because it ensures a perfect, individualized fit for your ears. Our practice provides this type of hearing protection which is a key way of preventing further hearing loss.
