Q&A with Our Hearing Specialist
Our Hearing Specialist Answers Your Questions
When Should I have My Hearing Tested?
The AMA recommends a baseline evaluation at age 50 if you have no problems and then a yearly hearing screening.
As soon as possible if you or your loved ones have noticed a hearing problem. Turning the TV up louder than necessary for others to hear, misunderstanding speech, asking people to repeat or feeling that other people are mumbling are just a few possible symptoms of a possible hearing problem.
Regardless of age, yearly screenings are recommended for those with a history of diabetes or thyroid problem, a family history of hearing loss, and if you are taking any medications which may cause a hearing loss (check with your doctor or pharmacist).
The Genesis AI has won the 2023 Excellence Award for technology.
The Genesis AI circuit is driven by Starkey’s proprietary neuro processor chip, which processes sound the same way the brain processes sound. The result is improved hearing both in quiet and in noise.
Even better- your battery life is nearly doubled: 41-51 hours for rechargeable aids, 8 days for a size 10 battery and 15 days for a 312 battery!
Call our hearing department for your hearing screening and to experience the Genesis sound.
