Advanced Instruments Hearing Aid Service

Noise Protection

Our goal is to provide each patient with individualized care using state of the art technology to ensure their success. By listening to our patients and thoroughly evaluating their lifestyle, we are able to determine the best hearing system for their communication needs.  We offer multiple brands of instruments to suit all types of hearing losses and life styles. 

We also provide custom hearing protection, consumer education and consultations regarding the effects of noise on hearing. Custom earmolds for water protection and communication systems are available.

We work closely with local physicians referring you for treatment, when testing determines a medical condition. Our offices are dedicated to providing you with the best possible hearing. 
 

Hearing Aid Companion Devices

Today's advanced instruments work with a variety of Bluetooth and FM devices.  These devices connect the instruments to the electronic devices that we regularly use.  They allow a direct connection to our cell phones (hands-free), televisions, CD players, MP3 players, and now remote microphones.  Remote microphones can be used at meetings, in cars, restaurants and a variety of other situations.  These devices overcome problems with hearing in difficult background noise environments and at distances, providing clear, understandable speech.  

Hearing Assistive Technology

Hearing Assistive Technology includes devices such as amplified telephones, cell phone accessories, television listening systems, alarm clocks, telephone and doorbell ring signalers, flashing smoke alarms, and personal listening systems to assist people to hear or be alerted to environmental signals, with or without hearing aids. 

Swim Molds, Noise Protectors, and Earmolds for Phone Headsets

We offer custom-made swim molds and earmolds for use with telephone headsets in a variety of styles and colors. We also offer custom-made and generic hearing protectors and musician's plugs that provide protection while maintaining the fidelity of the music.

Medical Support

Through our Pinole office, appointments can be made with the medical staff to address issues pertaining to our hearing and balance.

Lifetime Hearing Services

To protect the investment you have made in your hearing, we will schedule an appointment for you every 3-4 months to check on the health of your ears, wax accumulation and to do a thorough cleaning of your hearing instruments. This keeps your aids in top performance condition and extends the functional life of your instruments.  This also allows you to talk about your challenges in different environments. This close personal attention often times lead to fine tuning adjustments that can greatly improve your listening experience.
