About this clinic
Valley Forge Hearing has been in practice since 1969 and has provided the highest quality care for our patients. We strive on our personal service and that is the hall mark of our practice. When you call our offices, you will speak directly with our front desk personnel, not a machine. Your visits will be courteous, not curt. We pride ourselves in our promptness and efficiency, but not at the cost of ignoring your concerns. We have 2 convenient locations to serve you.
We administer diagnostic hearing evaluations or ‘audiologic evaluation’ to help determine if there is hearing loss. Not only are we looking at the type and amount of hearing loss present, but also possible causes of the loss. if the loss can effectively be treated by medicine or surgery, we refer the patient to the otolaryngologist. If the loss is permanent and appears to not be caused by a medical condition, we can proceed with a hearing aid evaluation. We believe it is important to first become knowledgeable and familiar with hearing aids and what they can do for you. Once you understand about hearing aids, you will have a better idea of whether amplification will benefit you. We offer repairs, maintenance, cleanings extended warranties and hearing aid batteries.Some times hearing devices are not enough, so then we can offer solutions for television, telephone, and more.We also offer custom ear molds or plugs that are used for such times for noise protection and swimming.
