About The Office
We provide a complete range of audiology and hearing aid services for children and adults of all ages.
We accept Medicare and participate with Horizon, Aetna, Cigna, United, Oxford, and many other insurance carriers. Unless required by your insurance, you do not need a referral from a physician to receive our services. Our friendly and helpful office manager will be happy to assist you to determine your specific insurance coverage and procedures that need to be followed. We also accept referrals from School Districts, NJ Division of Disability, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Workers Compensation and many Union and insurance hearing aid plans.
All services are provided by NJ licensed and nationally certified audiologists and speech language pathologists who hold either a Masters or Doctorate degree in their field. All hearing aid related follow up is with an audiologist, not a technician.
We pride ourselves on the comprehensive evaluations and our professional interaction with referring physicians, including neurologists, pediatricians, pediatric neurologists, developmental pediatricians, gerontologists, family practitioners, general practitioners, and otolaryngologists. We also pride ourselves on our educational audiology program and our ability to interact and provide suggestions to teachers and child study team members regarding classroom management and intervention (therapy) strategies to help their students.
Our diagnostic audiology services are designed for children and adults ranging in age from “new-born” to “mature.” Unlike other commercial hearing aid and audiology centers, our audiologists are expert in evaluating children and adults whose hearing is difficult to assess due to various neurological, developmental, or other conditions. We successfully assess the hearing of children on the autism spectrum, with pervasive developmental disability, Downs Syndrome and various other conditions. We receive referrals from developmental pediatricians, otoneurologists, pediatricians, neurologists, otolaryngologists, and over 70 school districts. We work closely with the NJ Division of Disability Determinations, NJ Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and Spectrum for Living. Many of our adult patients have hearing loss due to a lifetime of recreational and/or occupational noise exposure, the natural aging process (presbycusis), head trauma, or other diseases or injuries. In addition to assessing the function of the peripheral auditory system (outer, middle, and inner ear) we routinely assess (central) auditory processing ability. Our audiology services include (central) auditory processing assessment, educational audiology, evoked potential testing, forensic audiology, comprehensive peripheral auditory evaluation (including air/bone pure tone thresholds, tympanometry, otoacoustic emissions testing, signal to noise assessment, speech discrimination testing, comfortable and uncomfortable loudness measurement), infant hearing screening, and occupational audiology.
Our hearing aid services begin with an assessment of how your hearing loss is affecting your ability to communicate, how it is affecting your social life, your interaction with family members, and your work performance. We find that hearing aids are not for everyone. However, learning how to enjoy a great quality of life despite hearing limitations is an important resource our audiologists can provide for your benefit. If hearing aids are the answer, we are not locked in to one or two brands. We specialize in the patient who complains that they can “hear, but not understand, especially when there is background noise.” We understand “both sides of the story” when the spouse says, “s/he hears what she wants to hear” and the response “you don’t have to shout, just get the marbles out of your mouth.” We have a wide selection of major manufacturers and models to fit your specific hearing needs and your budget, including Phonak, Siemens, Starkey, Oticon, and Widex. We offer free demonstrations with “demo” hearing aids as well as traditional hearing aid trial periods. Our audiologists have an average of 13 years of experience and are “up-to-date” with the latest technology. While we are very familiar with Blue Tooth and all the other “bells and whistles,” we also understand that all of the technology is not needed by everyone. We are also happy to help you with hearing aid repairs and hearing aid batteries.
One of the things that sets us apart from other hearing aid dispensers is that we work hand in hand with our speech-language pathology colleagues. Recent research clearly shows that just fitting a patient with a hearing aid is not always enough. Some patients benefit tremendously with short-term auditory training, auditory memory training, speech reading and other forms of aural rehabilitation. Medicare and most other insurance carriers will cover aural rehabilitation conducted by a speech-language pathologist.
