The hearing aid fitting is a crucial step in one’s hearing health journey. At HearCare Audiology, we incorporate best practices to ensure we are providing the highest possibility for success. During this step, the optimum settings of the hearing aids will be established, combining audiogram results with a patient’s personal impression. The adjustment process is done using a computer. At HearCare Audiology, hearing aid fitting goes beyond adjustment. Our hearing healthcare providers make sure to teach a client and his/her family  how to operate the hearing aid. Usually, it may take awhile to get used to a new set of hearing aids. A follow-up checkup is also set during the hearing aid fitting to monitor the performance of the device and if necessary adjustments need to be carried out. Learn more…

Our services at HearCare Audiology do not end after the final hearing aid fitting. We have found people enjoy the most success with better hearing when they visit us at least twice a year for follow-up visits. During these appointments, we can discuss any possible concerns and ensure the hearing aids are in optimum working order.

HearCare Audiology can accommodate minor repairs for hearing aids. Depending on our assessment of the device, we might have to relay it to the manufacturer for repair, most especially if there are serious damages. HearCare Audiology Indiana offers in-office minor repairs, maintenance, and cleanings with major brands of hearing aids. Regular cleaning and maintenance of the hearing aid are encouraged to keep the device functioning at its best. Learn more…

Assistive listening devices, otherwise known as ALDs, help a user function better in daily situations by connecting many devices directly to their hearing aids. ALDs can be used solo or with hearing aids. Either way, they can make hearing easier by reducing the fatigue of listening. Common uses of assistive listening devices include making the television, telephone or home alarms more audible or boosting the power of personal hearing aids for better hearing in noisy scenarios.

An accurate hearing evaluation is the solid foundation of one’s hearing health. Without a proper and thorough hearing evaluation, even the most expensive hearing aids will not deliver the results needed. That being said, HearCare Audiology takes pride in our team of hearing healthcare professionals that efficiently performs diagnostic hearing tests to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of a patient’s hearing health.

HearCare Audiology Indiana knows the ins and outs of hearing loss. First-time users of hearing aids may have a lot of questions and apprehensions, and we are committed to answering every question and offering our services every step of the way. Counseling and orientation play a big role in terms of how consistently a wearer uses the device. Hearing aids are a major investment into one’s overall health, and we think it would be a shame for that investment to just sit in a drawer instead of helping improve communication and restore relationships. Most hearing aid users, especially first-timers, need proper counseling and orientation to fully enjoy the benefits and features of a hearing aid. Family members of hearing aid users are also encouraged to join the counseling and walk-through orientation as they also play an important role in the success of a person’s hearing aid journey.

Tinnitus is a condition wherein an individual perceives a certain kind of audio (buzzing, ringing, clicking, roaring, hissing) when no actual external noise is existing. Tinnitus can affect one or both ears and may affect a person’s hearing performance. A thorough evaluation is required to get to the bottom of tinnitus and to find out how much it affects a patient’s daily routine and functioning. Our team at HearCare Audiology can assess and handle tinnitus, mapping out treatment options for better hearing. Learn more…
Hearing protection plays a big role in preserving the integrity of one’s hearing health. HearCare Audiology Indiana offers different types of hearing protection and custom ear molds – musician ear molds, swim plugs, firearm protection, etc. Learn more…
Music adds color to life, and we have musicians to thank for that. However, being in the music industry can take its toll on the ears. Musicians are known to be exposed to high levels of sounds, making them vulnerable to permanent hearing damage. HearCare Audiology Indiana provides custom musician earplugs and monitors that protect the ears from potential damage while still allowing for a rich musical experience to transpire between the performer and audience.

Ear wax is a natural body secretion. Too much earwax can end up clogging your ears and interfere with normal hearing processes. People who wear hearing aids are vulnerable to ear wax blockage.

We discourage dealing with ear wax removal by yourself because impacted ear wax may be pushed deeper into the canal, causing more troubles for you in the form of an ear infection, hearing loss or tinnitus. When dealing with stubborn ear wax, it is best to leave it to the professionals who have the proper equipment to safely carry out ear wax removal procedures. HearCare Audiology offers professional ear wax removal services in Indiana. Choose from our six locations and visit the office nearest to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can self-refer to an audiologist if you are ready to pay for audiology treatments out of pocket. If you self-refer, there is no need to contact a doctor. If you want to utilize your insurance to pay for the consultation, testing, and other expenses, you must first get a recommendation from a doctor.

All diagnostic audiological treatments funded by Medicare require a physician’s recommendation. Furthermore, the primary cause for the referral determines the purpose of the examination. Each diagnostic technique or therapy must be justified by a relevant symptom, sign, or complaint. If you believe you require a hearing test, your doctor may send you to a hearing specialist (audiologist) who can perform the test.

A hearing aid specialist may perform hearing tests and choose the most suitable hearing aid for a specific client’s hearing loss. Audiologists can assess and diagnose a larger range of hearing and balance issues. Audiologists are medical practitioners who investigate the science of hearing loss and can pinpoint the source. Hearing aid specialists are only able to fit hearing aids and perform hearing tests.

Hearing aid dispensers (HADs) are fully certified experts who can test hearing and provide hearing aid after-care services. To employ hearing technology, hearing aid dispensers must be qualified and licensed. Meanwhile, audiologists may be able to test and diagnose a wider spectrum of hearing and balance issues. For medically relevant therapies such as balance issues, noise-induced hearing loss, and earwax impactions, an audiologist may be more effective. Both have the necessary training to install, adjust, maintain, clean, and repair hearing aids.
