Audiologists like Nola Aronson, M.A. can answer that question and help with all types of hearing issues. Nola’s main goal is to help her patients bring the communication back in so they can lead fuller social lives.

In addition to helping people amplify & fine tune their hearing, Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology can help with many conditions such as tinnitus.  You know that feeling when your ears keep buzzing after being exposed to loud noise? For most of us that goes away pretty quickly and does not come back. For some people, it’s like there’s a symphony going on in their head (only it’s not a pleasant musical).  It could be a whooshing, hissing, or buzzing sound that ranges from barely to very noticeable.  Tinnitus can develop in the outer, inner or middle ear, and can also stem from a brain abnormality. Some possible causes might be fluid infection of the middle ear bones or ear drum (tympanic membrane), Damage to the microscopic endings of the hearing nerve in the inner ear, Loud noise exposure, Medications (as simple as aspirin), Meniere’s syndrome. In very rare cases, tinnitus could be a symptom of serious problems such as a brain aneurysm or acoustic nerve tumor.  It’s one of those things that’s probably nothing harmful but it’s a good idea to get it checked out.

When you arrive you will be greeted with a smile at the check-in desk, and will soon discover that you are treated like family, complete with a waiting room stocked with coffee and munchies.  Your hearing care professional will run some simple tests and let you know if Advanced Audiology has a solution that might help you. With tinnitus, the bad news is there is no cure. The good news is at Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology, we carry devices such as Starkey’s XINO Tinnitus that are designed to help alleviate the symptoms. It’s just a matter of you giving us a call to answer a few questions. We can help you out with a FREE screening, and if needed, a *no-obligation trial to hear for yourself how Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology can help you live your life free from concern about hearing.

Communication Is The Key!

I do a lot of networking for my job here at Advanced Audiology… not really just for my job. I mean I actually enjoy being out and sharing how we love to help people hear better. You never know how you could help each other when you first meet new people. Usually these networking events take place where there is a lot of noise and activity going on.  That’s great for people with normal hearing.  When your hearing is outside the normal range, it proves to be difficult time and again attempting to stay in the conversation.  What happens is certain sounds drop from your hearing and usually very gradually over time it becomes more and more noticeable until you can’t ignore it any more.  Sounds like F and S get mixed up and that’s where the inappropriate responses come from what you thought you heard … there is a huge difference between “fatter today” and Saturday.

We did a little exercise at a staff meeting to find out what everyone’s favorite sound is.  Approximately 30% of us preferred most to hear the laughter or voice of our loved ones. Whether you consider yourself a master networker or a novice, life is about the relationships and conversation we share with our friends and loved ones.   While in the networking world relationships need to be created quickly and to do that you can’t afford to not hear clearly.  Communication is the key that unlocks the invisible door between 2 people, and you want to make sure you’re able to hold up your end of it by listening as you hear.

We are on a mission to make sure that everyone who needs it is able to get their hearing screened… It’s fast, easy and fun!  At Advanced Audiology we will make sure that you are hearing at your optimum best. Give us a call at 661-253-3277 and answer a few questions to see if you qualify for a FREE hearing screening.

Hearing Test or Hearing Screening?

You’ve seen and heard ads offering a FREE Hearing Screening and you’re wondering what exactly that means.  What is the difference between a test and a screen? How do I know which one I need?

First of all a screening is just that, a screening.  It’s a basic pass or fail situation that lets you and your audiologist know that further testing may be required.  If the screening is “failed”  in some cases we will send you to your primary care physician to get a referral for us to perform a full diagnostic hearing test and find out exactly what’s going on.

We are on a mission to help as many people as we can to hear better, so we have made it easy to qualify for a FREE screening. If any one or more of the following statements are true then give us a call to schedule your screening.

  • You are age 55 or over.
  • Have trouble hearing when background noise is present.
  • Your loved ones suggest that you should get your hearing tested.
  • You play the TV or Radio too loud.

Whether you are coming to Advanced Audiology for a full diagnostic test or a simple screening you will soon find out that we treat you like family.  Not the kind of family that bickers.  We are a welcoming oasis for you with snacks and coffee in our waiting room.  We understand how hard it is to admit that you have an issue with hearing, and we want to make sure that you are happy you made the choice to come and see us at Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology.
