In our minds, a Center for audiology should offer patients the full benefit of the best comprehensive audiological care possible: vestibular/balance testing, tinnitus management, hearing evaluation, and hearing conservation. At Audiology Center of Maine, we understand that while it is vitally important to help correct untreated hearing loss with use of properly fitted hearing aids, our profession is not just about the hearing aids.
As audiologists, our mission should include the prevention of hearing loss when able, and helping individuals with dizziness understand and manage their symptoms. To achieve this goal, we value and foster our professional relationships with other specialists who are involved in patient healthcare: physical therapists, speech language therapists, Ear, Nose and Throat physicians, and general practitioners.
The use of evidence-based best practice methods, such as real ear probe microphone measurements to ensure that patients are truly getting the right amount of amplification to properly correct the hearing loss on the audiogram.
Quality digital products from all the major hearing aid manufacturers, at prices designed to fit almost any budget.
Patient self-rating performance measures to gauge our patient’s progress with their selected product.
Aural rehabilitation for those patients who continue to struggle to hear, even after prosthetic correction of the hearing loss.
Additionally, we work hard to provide a strong public education on audiology and hearing loss related topics, as evidenced by our involvement in the local communities we serve.
We are always open to learning about how we can better help our patients in their communities – please contact us with an idea, today!
