“When my ENT explained to me that a hearing aid would benefit me I wasn't happy. I listened to Dr. Finner and had a hearing aid evaluation through Dr. Nicole Ballet. She is awesome. She put me at ease and found the perfect hearing aid. I am so happy and can hear. ”

Hearing care services
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 as noise protection and swimming.
