A Thorough Process That’s 100% Patient Focused
From start to finish, our approach at Modern Hearing Solutions & Choice Hearing Center is a comprehensive one that totally focuses on the best treatment of hearing loss and on exceptional patient care.
What to Expect Before Your Appointment
Our commitment to all our patients begins before you ever step foot in our hearing center. We will educate you on our process and treatment options and will send you an information packet that provides education on our process and treatment options. You will also receive a book that will answer most any questions about hearing loss. From ‘‘how are hearing loss and Dementia connected?’, to ‘what are the different treatment options?’, to ‘how affordable are hearing loss treatment options?.’
About Your Hearing Consultation
Our Hearing Consultation is a comprehensive diagnostic procedure intended to define the degree of hearing loss and examine the impact of hearing loss on understanding words and conversation in both quiet and background noise environments. The best hearing treatment begins with the best evaluation and our expert audiologists and instrument specialists use proven evaluation skills to provide the best treatment in restoring clarity.
The Journey to Improved Speech Understanding Begins with NeuroTechnology™ Hearing Aids and Treatment Options
It’s a fact that we hear with our brains, not our ears. NeuroTechnology™, the new generation of hearing loss technology, is designed to treat the cognitive impairments of hearing loss. Unlike traditional hearing aids that are manufactured to simply make things louder, today’s treatment options restore clarity of speech in all listening situations, including rooms with significant background noise. There are several NeuroTechnology™ hearing aid options available depending on the results of your hearing consultation.
NeuroTechnology™ stimulates the auditory system dependent on several factors, including the extent of impairment and the delay in treating hearing loss (e.g. how long have you been living with untreated hearing loss). Treatment begins at the initial appointment and over the first few weeks and month, there is an adaptive process occurring as the patient’s brain becomes adapted to restored clarity.
Adapting to NeuroTechnology™
In a perfect world, we would begin treatment for each patient the first day their hearing loss started. However, in the real world, statistics tell us that patients tend to wait an average of seven years before starting hearing treatment.
Stimulating the auditory system has a positive impact on the entire brain – and needs to be delivered at a conservative pace to ensure a successful treatment. Our method of adapting clarity and volume levels within the first few months has been shown to be the most effective treatment rate – with the highest patient satisfaction.
Once treatment begins, patients can expect to encounter new experiences and new sounds. They will visit the office 2-3 times over the first 30-60 days to dial in on exact sound stimulation levels. While science is the driving force behind NeuroTechnology™, patient experience and feedback help guide the treatment process.
Understanding the adaptive process of the brain is the basis for our comprehensive training program that encompasses total auditory rehabilitation and active, engaged living for our patients. As your hearing diminished over time, so did your brain’s ability to orient, localize, and focus on the speech sounds you want to hear. Think of this stage of treatment as the “physical therapy” for your ears.
Our comprehensive auditory and brain stimulation program will help you think faster, focus better, and remember more of what you hear.
The Importance of Scientific Verification of Improved Hearing Ability
It is critical that treatment is scientifically verified and validated. ‘Real-ear’ measurements (REM) provide a method to objectively assess the accuracy and stimulation levels of NeuroTechnology™ when placed in the patient’s ear. Real-ear measurements are considered the “gold standard” method for achieving proper clarity and stimulation.
