All the residents of Short Hills, NJ have access to our services at Hearing Doctors of New Jersey. We are only a short distance away in Livingston. We offer a variety of services including hearing aids, hearing assessments and evaluations, and even earwax removal. Your Doctor of Audiology will walk you through the treatment process and help you achieve your hearing goals.
Adult Hearing Assessments
When you first come in for an adult hearing assessment, your Doctor of Audiology will discuss your health history, family history, medication, and any injuries or health conditions you have that could affect your hearing and your overall health.
Once we have a complete picture of your health, your doctor will examine your ears for any impactions, obstructions, or damage that is responsible for your hearing loss. And finally, your doctor will perform a hearing test to evaluate your hearing at different frequencies and during conversations. They will also see how your ears react to different levels of pressure.
Once we have a complete picture of your hearing, we will review your results and then build a treatment plan that fits your needs and your goals.
Hearing aids are small electronic devices that can be worn to amplify sounds and allow those with a hearing impairment to hear more clearly. Hearing aids are primarily for those who have experienced damage to the sensory cells in the inner ear due to aging, disease, or injury.
Hearing aids can benefit those with hearing impairment in both loud and quiet situations and can assist those with different degrees of hearing loss.
They are typically worn behind the ear or in the ear and provide direct amplification so you can hear the world around you.
There are multiple hearing aid styles and manufacturers. Part of your assessment will determine which style is best for you. Some of the hearing aid styles include:
- Invisible-in-Canal (IIC)
- Completely-in-Canal (CIC)
- In-the-Canal (ITC)
- In-the-Ear (ITE)
- Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)
- Behind-the-Ear (BTE)
As for manufacturers, Hearing Doctors of New Jersey offers quite a few of those as well, including:
Hearing Aid Repairs & Fittings
Another important aspect of the hearing services we provide at Hearing Doctors of New Jersey is hearing aid repairs and fittings. We want to be sure your hearing aid fits you as comfortably as possible and fitting it to your ear shape ensures that you barely notice that it’s there when you’re wearing it.
As for repairs, with the advanced technology in a hearing aid, sometimes things break or stop working. Luckily, repairs are usually relatively easy and can be done in-house at our office. We can fix your hearing aid and have you on your way.
If the repair is more extensive, it may need to be sent to the manufacturer. If that’s the case, we’ll ensure you’re able to manage your life without it while it’s in for repairs.
Central Auditory Processing Evaluation
Central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) is a condition where the signals and communication between the brain and the ears are not working properly. It makes it difficult for people to concentrate, identify spoken words, multi-task, and remember instructions. It’s primarily found in young children but can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms are so close to ADD and ADHD.
Luckily, at Hearing Doctors of New Jersey, we take a personalized approach to treatment for CAPD. We will build a treatment plan that is specific to your needs with the help of speech-language pathologists, psychologists, occupational therapists, and school staff.
H.E.A.R. Method Treatment Program
At Hearing Doctors of New Jersey, our proprietary treatment plan is the H.E.A.R. Method Treatment Program. The program offers comprehensive hearing services at an affordable cost. It also ensures that you’re getting ongoing treatment. Not just one appointment. Hearing loss is often degenerative, so you will likely need different treatments as time goes by.
The program includes a comprehensive brain-hearing evaluation, an advanced hearing system, lifetime repairs, a lifetime warranty, and four years of supplies. Additionally, all your testing and office visits will be with your Doctor of Audiology.
