We offer the most comprehensive services for your hearing and tinnitus needs.
Mid Island Audiology
Mid Island Audiology takes a personalized approach to treating hearing loss. We work with you individually to understand your hearing loss and what treatment plan would be best for you. Led by a licensed, certified audiologist, we are able to offer a full range of hearing-related services, from hearing testing to hearing aids to hearing protection. We also believe in looking at your hearing health holistically, especially if you are experiencing tinnitus.
Our audiologist, Dr. Recher, is always available to answer our patients’ questions and address their needs. If you’re looking for someone who truly cares about your hearing and who will get to know you as an individual, give us a call and let us help you get started on the path to better hearing.
Unlike hearing screenings, comprehensive hearing tests involve much more than putting on headphones in a quiet room. Our comprehensive hearing tests evaluates your ability to hear tones, as well as speech in noise. This allows us to mimic real-world environments and determine the extent of your hearing loss. We also examine the structures of your ear, your ears’ ability to conduct sound, pressure within your ear canal, and other measures that give us a total picture of your hearing ability.
We will recommend a pair of hearing aids that we believe will help you manage your hearing loss and improve your communication. We will expertly fit and program your hearing aids to your unique ear shape and hearing needs.
We offer a four-year warranty on all hearing aids. If something goes wrong with your hearing aid or the device breaks, we’ll repair it in-office at no charge. If we cannot fix it ourselves, we’ll send it to the manufacturer. We may even be able to loan you a pair of hearing aids while you wait.
We can make custom-fit earplugs for swimmers, musicians, construction workers, or hunters. We also specialize in musician in-ear monitors that provide superior flat-frequency response. Occupational hearing protection is designed to protect your ears from loud impulse noises like gunshots or machinery without muting the softer sounds of the environment like speech or a babbling brook.
Tinnitus, also known as ringing or buzzing in your ears, can be disruptive to your life. Tinnitus can be caused by long exposure to loud noise, illnesses, medication, auditory diseases, or other issues that affect the inner ear. Dr. Recher specializes in helping patients manage their tinnitus through holistic treatment.
Earwax is not necessarily a problem, but some people have excess earwax that can affect how they hear. If this is true for you, we offer an earwax management program to flush out your ear canal.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employees in manufacturing facilities to have their hearing periodically tested. We work with these facilities to test employees, educate safety managers on the dangers of prolonged exposure to loud noises, and train facility personnel on OSHA protocols for hearing protection. We also produce custom-fit hearing protection that exceeds the minimum OSHA standards.
Holistic Treatment for Tinnitus
Dr. Recher specializes in helping patients live with tinnitus; he has tinnitus himself and understands what it’s like. He has developed a detailed consultation process where he discusses your health history and lifestyle to help you understand why you may be experiencing ringing or buzzing in your ears. If he discovers a possible medical reason for this condition, you may be referred to a physician for a further consultation. If there is no medical reason, he will begin crafting a course of treatment that may include lifestyle changes and hearing aids to provide long-term relief from your symptoms. You may be advised to practice meditation and relaxation or make changes to your eating habits and exercise routines in order to maximize your solutions.
One technique we use to help patients manage their symptoms of tinnitus is personalized sound frequency therapy. Along with counseling to help you identify and reduce stressors that may be causing tinnitus, Dr. Recher will use proven methods of sound frequency therapy to help train your brain to ignore the ringing in your ears. Part of treating tinnitus with sound frequency therapy involves having the patient listen to unique, enhanced human toning sounds through headphones that will create a natural resonance in your body. We have the proper equipment in our office to help your body reduce the symptoms of tinnitus. Dr. Recher’s techniques are scientifically proven and will help you to experience relief from the ringing in your ears.
