Bringing back the softer sounds of life
Dr. Kane has over 20 years of experience as an audiologist. Her career began in the VA system, seeing veterans at the VA in Syracuse, NY as well as Buffalo, NY. She has worked for several busy, well-respected Ear Nose and Throat specialists in Chicago and the near west suburbs since 1982. She opened the Hearing and Balance Center, P.C. 5 years ago in the Streeterville area and continues to also see patients at Adventist Lagrange Hospital and Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. She continues to truly enjoy being an audiologist, mentoring future audiologist students, keeping abreast of the latest developments in the audiology field, and bringing this knowledge to her patients to guide them in their hearing health choices.
The Hearing and Balance Center is a trusted leader which provides full-range diagnostics of hearing and balance disorders as well as advanced solutions for improved communication. In our practice, the emphasis on the patient's needs and lifestyle is paramount when selecting amplification options. Counseling includes a full review of all test findings, as well as discussion of the patient's needs and expectations regarding hearing instrument selection, costs and styles. During the discussion the patient will be allowed to wear hearing instruments to really hear what appropriate amplification sounds like. There are a variety of payment methods available including payment plans. Once a purchase is made, the patient is given a 30 day adaptation period to truly give the instruments a "test-drive" in the environments they frequent - home, restaurants, work, theatre. We offer in-house repairs on hearing instruments, as well as factory repair of most models, regardless of where they were purchased. We also keep our patients abreast of the latest advances in technology so, as a consumer, they are educated to the best products available to them. Over the years, our satisfied patients have become a great resource for growing our practice, as they refer family and friends to also take the step to returning to the world of better hearing. We appreciate the trust they have placed in us for their hearing care.
