Jefferson Health - Northeast Audiology Center

People with a hearing problem that needs correction typically notice these signs:

  • They have trouble hearing friends, associates, and loved ones, and miss words in both casual and important interactions.
  • They have to ask people to repeat often
  • They turn the TV up louder than everyone else
  • They feel that others mumble or drop the beginning or ending of words
  • They have trouble hearing with other noise around
  • They sometimes pretend to hear or think they’ve understood, when they haven’t

Hearing often deteriorates gradually, and subtly, slowly causing irritability, failed communication, loss of interactions and eventual disconnection from social surroundings. The problem is usually fixable, with hearing aids based on the latest miniaturized engineering and digital technology. These hearing aids are smaller and less visible than ever before.

The bottom line is that no one has anything to lose by getting a confidential test and learning about what’s available. The full-service Audiology Center can screen and advise on hearing needs. A complete audiogram, conducted by Jefferson Health – Northeast’s certified and highly trained audiologist, tests not just ability to hear sounds but to understand speech. The staff can counsel on the question of hearing aids and, when necessary, equip individuals with the aid that’s right for him or her. Instead of shopping for a hearing aid, patients should look for the best audiologist they can find, who can then match them with the aid that is right for them. 

Instead of trusting this important step to a hearing-aid dealer or retailer, patients can get the confidence of evaluation by a hospital audiologist under the supervision of an otolaryngologist. Jefferson Health – Northeast’s center sells affordable hearing aids with warranties and with labor contracts that include complimentary cleanings and adjustments. The services are more comprehensive, and the prices often are more favorable, than those offered by local hearing centers and hearing aid retailers.
