The Ways We Can Help You
Why Hearing Loss is So Difficult to Self-Diagnose
The biggest reason that so many people are walking around with an untreated hearing loss and a limited ability to connect is because self-diagnosing a hearing loss is very difficult.
With hearing loss often being very gradual and slow, the incremental day-to-day differences are almost impossible to notice, with no way to compare your level of hearing today to what it was yesteryear. This is why our loved ones are often the first people that notice our hearing challenges.
The problem with an untreated hearing loss is that it continues to worsen until addressed, with many people waiting several years between first experiencing hearing challenges and taking any form of meaningful action.
We’re passionate about raising awareness for the importance of regular hearing testing, with hearing loss recently listed as the third most common physical condition in the US and the World Health Organization predicting that hearing loss cases will double by 2050.
If you or a loved one is concerned about your hearing, then the first step is to have a comprehensive hearing assessment. It’s quick, non-invasive, and you’ll be able to receive accurate results right after the short test.
Alaska’s Only Full Service Tinnitus Management
If you have been experiencing a ringing, buzzing, or humming sound in your ears, you’ll know just how frustrating and debilitating this can be.
Nothing can stop you from hearing the life that you love more than a continuous high-pitched sound that prevents you from being able to enjoy the special moments.
As Alaska’s only full service tinnitus management service, our team is trained on how to address hearing challenges through a methodical management process. Masking is not tinnitus management.
Whereas many hearing care providers would promise that hearing aids are the only solution, the truth is that in many cases, they are not and only marginally help to manage the challenges that you’re facing. Our approach doesn’t just put a band-aid on the problem, but it also helps you to successfully manage it in your everyday life.
Whether you have had tinnitus challenges for a long time or you’re new to them, we strongly encourage you to schedule a conversation so that we can explain how you can receive the right help.
Offering the Most Convenient Hearing Care in Alaska
With many of our patients driving several hour distances each way to come and see us, we became the first licensed audiologists in Alaska to introduce “remote” care in 2018, ensuring that no matter where you are, whether at home, work, or half way up a mountain, you can receive our support, care, and help with a tap of a button.
With the craziness of 2020, this allowed us to continue to offer high levels of hearing care to our patients with new and innovative methods being used to continue to care for our communities.
No matter what happens in the world, you remain the center of ours. With everybody’s level of comfort being different during this time, we’re able to meet you where you are and ensure that you receive the help and care you need so that you can hear the life that you love.
