What Our Patients Say

Frequently Asked Questions

Determining whether your hearing is experiencing difficulties can be an important step in seeking appropriate care from an audiologist. While only a professional audiologist can provide a definitive diagnosis, there are several signs that may indicate potential hearing loss such as difficulty understanding speech, frequently asking for repetition, increased volume on electronic devices, and tinnitus or ringing in the ears.

Hearing aids are the most popular solutions to address hearing loss for patients of all ages. There are various hearing aid manufacturers producing different types and levels of hearing aids. The cost of hearing aids vary on the brand, technology, power, material, and hearing loss it is designed to address. An audiologist can help you determine the best hearing aid for your specific hearing loss.

The need to clean the ears daily using cotton swabs or Q-tips is one of the most common misconceptions when it comes to ear hygiene. While it is okay to clean the outer part of the ears, cleaning the inner ear and trying to get rid of earwax is not recommended. If you encounter any hearing issues and you believe that earwax may be the culprit, it is best to have your ears checked by an audiologist. Audiologists are trained to perform professional earwax removal to ensure that your ears are safe and free from dirt and obstructions.

Hearing aids come in various styles and designs to suit different types of hearing loss and lifestyles. The most common hearing aid styles include behind-the-ear, in-the-ear, receiver-in-the-ear, in-the-canal, and invisible-in-the-canal. An audiologist can walk you through the different hearing aid styles and recommend the best one to address your hearing needs.

Audiologists are healthcare professionals trained to diagnose and treat hearing and balance disorders including hearing loss, tinnitus, impacted earwax, and auditory processing disorders. Audiologists can also provide comprehensive hearing evaluations, hearing protection, and counseling and auditory rehabilitation. At South County Hearing, we work with patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly.
