Make informed decisions on the purchase of your next hearing aid device!
At Independence Hearing, we are committed to providing excellent hearing healthcare to the residents of Stuart, Hobe Sound, Palm City, and Port St. Lucie. Our office is in Stuart, where we offer comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services. Individuals with untreated hearing loss are more likely to develop some form of cognitive decline when compared to their age-matched peers without hearing loss. Early identification and proper treatment are effective ways we can help prevent social isolation and other associated symptoms of hearing loss.
The information obtained from a complete diagnostic evaluation, in combination with decades of clinical experience, allows the Independence team to ensure patients have success regaining hearing and enhancing communication, which leads to a reconnection with their individual world.
The process begins by ensuring the technology we recommend is the most advanced, having strong research and development support. The hearing aid fitting is customized to the patient and is a 10 week process, as the auditory system is very complex. The hearing aids are programmed and verified to the patients prescription using evidence based techniques (Real Ear Measures). The global approach of a complete diagnostic assessment, and prescribing and programming the most innovative technology, allows our patients the best opportunity to succeed with the rehabilitative process.
The stronger and more effective it will be, especially for understanding speech.
With timely evaluation and proper fitting, hearing devices can produce better results.
When both ears hear better, your brain naturally processes sound easier.
