At Scott’s Alamo Hearing Aid Centers, we have the expertise to properly diagnose your hearing loss and treat it with hearing aids. We offer a comprehensive list of services to keep your ears clean and healthy and to have you hearing your best. No person experiences hearing loss the same, that’s why we offer a wide range of services to better help you with your individual hearing needs.
Our services go beyond hearing aids. We offer hearing evaluations, hearing aid fitting and programming, hearing aid repairs, custom earplugs, tinnitus management, and earwax removal.
We offer full hearing evaluations to determine the type and degree of hearing loss you have. Our comprehensive hearing evaluation is used to determine the best treatment for your individual hearing loss. Our hearing evaluations consists of a variety of tests such as air conduction, bone conduction, speech testing, distortion product otoacoustic emissions, auditory brainstem response testing, and acoustic immittance testing. These tests allow us to understand your hearing loss, how it originated, if it is affecting your speech comprehension, and how to properly treat it. The hearing evaluation typically takes 30 minutes and is painless. You will sit inside our sound booth with a pair of headphones on and you will hear a series of beeps, tones, and words that you will need to respond to. Prior to the hearing evaluation our hearing instrument specialist will go over the process with you and tell you what to expect during the test.
We make custom earplugs to protect your hearing. We will make a mold of your specific ear shape to create custom earplugs for when you are in loud environments. It is important to protect your hearing now and in the future so you can continue to hear your best. With custom earplugs you can ensure that you are being proactive against hearing loss. It is important that whenever you are in loud environments, such as a concert or sporting event, that you protect your hearing by wearing earplugs.
Our hearing instrument specialist is an expert in the fitting and programing of hearing aids. Greg Scott has over 40 years of experience fitting hearing aids. After your hearing evaluation we will go over your options for hearing aids based on your type and degree of hearing loss, your lifestyle, and budget. Based on these factors we will make a recommendation for hearing aids that we believe will be the perfect fit for you.
After we’ve ordered your hearing aids and they have arrived we will expertly fit them to your specific ear shape and program them to your hearing loss. We also clean and repair hearing aids in office at no extra charge, as long as they are still in their warranty.
Conductive hearing loss can be caused by a blockage in the ear, such as a build-up of cerumen (earwax). We can irrigate your ears to keep them clean and hearing their best. Earwax is natural and helps to keep bacteria outside of your inner ear, and will naturally work its way out.
However, if you produce an excessive amount of earwax then that can lead to a blockage affecting your hearing. We will use a syringe tool to insert water into your ear and flush out the debris and earwax. This will keep your ears healthy, clean, and hearing their best.
