What We Do
The road to better hearing doesn’t end with a single investment.
It’s an ongoing journey, and we’ll accompany you every step of the way. It begins with a hearing evaluation and continues long after you’ve invested in hearing devices. The audiologists and staff at HearWell are dedicated to providing you with professional, comprehensive hearing evaluations, advanced hearing device technology, and compassionate care.

We believe that hearing well is living well, and we are committed to improving your quality of life through better hearing.
We understand that untreated hearing issues can lead to depression, anxiety, dementia as well as many other cognitive conditions. We also understand the isolation you feel when you are living with hearing loss.
Restoring the joyful parts of your life is our passion. Your communication goals are our communication goals. And the first step in meeting those goals is a hearing evaluation. Our licensed audiologists provide thorough, precise and accurate hearing evaluations to determine the existence, type and severity of your hearing loss.
After discussing your concerns and case history, your hearing evaluation will consist of a series of tests, including:
- Otoscopy – Using an otoscope, the audiologist will examine your ear and ear canals for the presence of debris, impacted earwax, and signs of rupture or infection.
- Pure-Tone Audiometry – A behavioral test that is used to measure the threshold of sounds that are audible to you in varying frequencies.
- Speech Audiometry – This test assesses your ability to detect and understand one and two syllable words.Tympanometry – By creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal, this test examines the condition of the middle ear, the mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the conduction bones.
- Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) – When the cochlea is stimulated, hair cells vibrate producing an echo back into the middle ear. The absence of echo may indicate damage to the inner ear.
What Happens Next?
We use the results of your hearing evaluation to determine the best course of treatment. If we determine that hearing aids are the right solution, we’ll discuss your options and assist you in choosing the right hearing aids to suit your needs, your lifestyle and your budget.
