Unlike many other medical conditions, a hearing loss is invisible to the eye. Despite this, more people suffer from it than you might think.
In recent statistical data from the US Department of Health and Human Services, 37.5 million Americans reported trouble hearing.
But the quantity of people who actually decide to act upon a suspected condition is much lower.
- Some are concerned by the stigma of hearing loss – wrongly believing that treatment solutions will make them seem older.
- Others don’t like the idea of attending a doctor’s office, preferring instead to wait until their issue becomes severe.
- And a considerable number simply don’t recognize that they have hearing loss symptoms.
If left untreated, a condition will often worsen. These are the reasons why it’s important to visit us at Holland Hearing as soon as you suspect you have a hearing problem.
Years of experience
Licensed doctors of audiology have years of academic and practical experience that permits them to prescribe life-changing solutions for patients with a hearing loss.
Each audiologist requires advanced qualifications in order to admit patients to their office – similar to other fields of medicine.
Both Dr. Holland and I hold doctoral degrees in audiology, providing us with complete knowledge of tinnitus, hearing rehabilitation, and hearing conservation.
But more than this, we speak to people with hearing loss symptoms every day and understand that every person’s condition is unique to them.
Full hearing evaluations
At Holland Hearing, we provide full hearing evaluations for those who suspect they have a hearing loss, giving them a complete picture of their issue.
We begin this with a detailed discussion of a patient’s medical history. This often provides clues to a possible hereditary condition or an event when they sustained hearing damage.
Then we move on to a physical inspection, where Dr. Holland or I will examine your auditory system for any nerve damage, fluid build-up, or blockages inside your ear.
Finally, we conduct a hearing test to measure your capacity to interpret different sounds at alternative levels. Once this is complete, we can pinpoint your condition accurately.
Expert hearing aid fittings
There have never been more ways to purchase a hearing aid, but this diversity has also brought potential pitfalls for consumers.
Hearing aids are highly technical devices, and for them to work correctly, they need to be fitted by a professional with expert knowledge of every manufacturer.
If a hearing assessment reveals that you require hearing aids, at Holland Hearing, we’ll then spend several sessions ensuring each person’s device fits their needs and requirements.
Through this expert service, you’ll get the very best return from your investment in hearing technology.
Some patients who have ear infections or a simple wax build-up can be fully cured of their symptoms.
But those who have permanent damage will require constant monitoring. If a hearing assessment reveals this, we provide life-long care at Holland Hearing.
My colleagues and I build strong, enduring relationships with our patients, and make sure those that need our consistent help feel like family.
We wouldn’t wish a hearing condition on anyone, but if you’re experiencing a hearing loss, you can feel rest assured that we’ll offer you the best care possible.
