First-Rate Audiology Services—
A Compassionate Environment

Hearing Aid Evaluations and Devices

Every day we help clients identify and treat hearing loss by offering evaluations, hearing aid fittings, repairs and earmolds. We offer the most up-to-date hearing aids as well as troubleshooting and repairs.

Consumer Reports magazine reported in 2009 that shopping for hearing aids was tedious, expensive, and fraught with upselling and jargon. It used secret shoppers who later consulted with audiologists and found about 60 per cent of the hearing aids purchased weren’t right for the customer because they amplified too much or too little.

We do not upsell or use hard-sell tactics. We provide unparalleded service when it comes to fitting and adjusting hearing aids. One size does not fit all.

The choices of features are complex and the key is to find the right aid for the right person. A younger, gadget-loving user might be keen to have one with a Bluetooth capability for phone calls but others will want something simpler with larger batteries that are easier to handle.

We also offer batteries and accessories for hearing aids (dri-aid kits, telephone pads, etc).

About Us

The Audiology Department consists of audiologists who have advanced degrees (AuD or Master’s) and are are certified by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association.

We are here to help our patients find the hearing aids that are right for them. Our audiologists will make sure the hearing aids fit, take care of adjustments and service, help patients become accustomed to new sounds, and provide the necessary follow-up care to ensure success.

Hearing Aid Bank

Our Hearing Aid Bank is a one-of-a kind, invaluable subsidy program designed to help qualifying low-income adults pay for hearing aids. This resource is invaluablefor people who struggle to pay for hearing aids. It is a special reserve fund supplemented by corporate and private donations in our community. We are always seeking donations to help others. Please consider a donation to the Hearing Aid Bank.

In our efforts to provide more comprehensive services to our clients, our professional staff has forged long-term partnerships with area hearing aid vendors and community organizations who hold similar missions so that needy clients can apply for assistance based on Federal Poverty Guidelines. These include HEAR NOW, the American Red Cross, HEARS USA, area Sertoma Clubs and the Denver Lions Foundation. 

Hearing Aid Bank assistance is provided in our Denver and Colorado Springs offices. 

We are here to help people improve the quality of their life.

Sound Decibel Abuse

Since mid-December 2005, ASHA (American Speech Language Hearing Association) has mounted an aggressive public awareness campaign on the potential link between the usage of some popular technology devices that provide audio through ear buds or earphones (like Apple's iPod, other MP3 players, portable DVD players) and hearing loss.

ASHA was the only organization mentioned when CNN reported Apple's recent decision to introduce sound-limiting software for its iPod. ASHA called Apple's decision "a step in the right direction." However, ASHA continues to educate the public about safe listening and considers public education the long-tem answer to the risk of hearing loss posed by popular technology.

In addition to the problems due to the degree of hearing loss, it is important to know that hearing loss also causes problems in terms of the quality of sounds received by the brain. This is particularly true in presbycusis. The inner ear may receive the speech signal, but because it is not functioning well, the sounds are not processed clearly. The inner ear does not transmit the sounds accurately. It may sound like a radio that is out of tune. This aspect of hearing loss is tested by repeating a list of words. In a sense, sensorineural hearing loss is more similar to macular degeneration than it is to near-sightedness or far-sightedness. It is this factor that can make hearing loss such a frustrating problem for so many.
