Experiencing difficulty hearing or muffled hearing? Excessive ear wax may be the cause. We offer several safe and effective options for ear wax removal treatments.
Recreational exposure to excessive noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss. Our custom ear molds provide hearing protection for concerts, sports, musicians, industrial workers, shooters, and swimmers.
We support the early identification, assessment, and intervention for all types of hearing loss in children. Early intervention is crucial for the development of speech and language, as well as for social, emotional, and psychological development.
“When I think about all the things I have seen and experienced over the years, I have been truly blessed to call my “life’s work” serving people with hearing loss and helping them reconnect to the sounds that mean the most to them. I have also had the opportunity to serve other communities in underserved countries such as India, Guyana, Costa Rica, Peru, and St. Lucia. These mission experiences of service have granted me the opportunity to change lives by giving the gift of hearing. It is as simple as that.
I have witnessed this magic with people of all ages: babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time, grandparents hearing their grandchildren, children hearing their own voices and realizing they can make sounds. It’s incredible to witness, and I’ve been blessed to share these moments.
I look forward to helping you reconnect to the sounds that are critical, vital and memorable to you! Through the Longmont Hearing and Tinnitus Center, we can change lives by helping you hear for life.”
I found both the receptionist and Dr. Rudden to be very professional as well as good communicators. Dr. Rudden was able to clearly explain the results of my hearing exam and map out the various options I had for the next steps including her recommended type of hearing aid for my specific hearing loss.
Great hearing care, worked with my insurance well to maximize my benefits. They have also taken good care of my other family members. Very patient with older folks and understanding of those of us with hearing loss at an earlier age. Highly recommended provider.
Staff was very professional and efficient. As a new patient I didn't feel like a new patient. Highly recommend.
You can self-refer to an audiologist if you are ready to pay for audiology treatments out of pocket. If you self-refer, there is no need to contact a doctor. You must first obtain a doctor’s referral before you may use your insurance to fund the consultation, testing, and other related fees. Some audiology clinics do not allow walk-ins (save for current patients), while others do. It depends on the clinic, therefore the best thing to do is phone or email your chosen clinic to save time and effort.
You can choose to have your hearing checked privately without a recommendation from your doctor. Many independent hearing clinics provide hearing exams for walk-in patients. However, if you intend to utilize your insurance to cover your hearing test, either partially or entirely, you must obtain a reference since most insurance companies demand a referral for reimbursement.
Because the distinctions between audiologists and hearing aid experts are minor, it is easy to become confused about which expert you are visiting. There are, however, some significant variations between what these two professions can achieve for you. A hearing aid expert, in essence, can test your hearing and equip you with a hearing aid. Audiologists can evaluate and diagnose a broader spectrum of hearing and balance issues. Audiologists are more specialized than hearing aid experts, so your doctor may recommend you to one to learn more about your situation.
An audiologist is someone who has a degree and has specialized in the anatomy of hearing. To be a hearing aid dispenser, on the other hand, you must be qualified and apply for a license, in addition to comprehensive training in working with hearing equipment. An audiologist must get both an undergraduate and graduate degree in audiology. There will also be a supervised externship before the professional may get national certification and state licensing. An audiologist may be more appropriate for more medically related services such as balance difficulties, earwax impactions, and hearing loss caused by noise exposure.
Audiologists are trained professionals who use the latest technology to carry out hearing tests and offer hearing solutions to help identify and treat problems related to hearing and balance. When it comes to concerns related to audiology, hearing, and balance, an audiologist is the best healthcare professional to see for consultation.
Hearing aids are available in different sizes, models, and designs. When choosing a hearing aid, the first thing you need to consider is the type and degree of hearing loss you have. To ensure that you put your investment toward the right type of hearing aid, consult with an audiologist. Longmont Hearing and Tinnitus Center is a pioneering and trusted hearing care provider in Colorado.
Tinnitus is usually caused by an underlying medical condition, such as an ear injury, age-related hearing loss, or a problem with the circulatory system. For a lot of people, tinnitus may improve by treating the underlying cause or providing treatments that reduce or mask the noise. If masking sounds are not enough, we use tinnitus retraining therapy to help reduce the impact of tinnitus in your life
Tinnitus is usually noticeable in quiet settings. To combat this, a white noise machine may be used to mask the tinnitus noise. Tinnitus with hearing loss may be managed with hearing aids that have built-in tinnitus maskers. An electric fan, soft music, or low-volume radio static may also provide temporary relief.
Hearing loss can affect people of all ages and can be caused by various factors. The three basic categories of hearing loss include sensorineural hearing loss, conductive hearing loss, and mixed hearing loss. Each person has a unique hearing experience, hence, there is no generic solution for hearing loss. A comprehensive assessment done by an audiologist is the first step in treating or managing hearing loss.
The price of hearing aids varies based on your unique hearing loss and lifestyle. There are different technology levels, styles, and capabilities for each device. The best range we can give you would be from $700 up to about $2500 per device and everything in between. There may be professional fees for the fitting and orientation as well as the verification measurements but those fees are the same regardless of the product that you select. An audiologist is the best choice to help you select the hearing aid that is best for you.
