Here at HSDC, we recognize that hearing loss is often more than just hearing. It’s about communication, participation, and even safety. People come to HSDC Audiology because they are missing conversations with family, a coworker’s joke, or telephone rings and fire alarms. They turn down trips to the movies or the restaurant with friends, because it’s too loud, too hard to hear, or not worth the effort.
If you or a loved one are beginning to suspect hearing loss, it can be a challenge to figure out where to start. We like to think of ourselves as your personal guides. We are here to answer questions and help get you to where you want to be.
Our clients value our philosophy of personalized service. You’re not just a patient. You’re a part of our community. With our emphasis on continuity of care, you’ll get to know your provider as we get to know you.
We see clients across the lifespan, from infants to elders (pediatric to geriatric), and across all levels of hearing loss, from mild to profound. As a nonprofit, we are able to offer access to hearing aids for all income levels, whether through our programs or through our community partners.
Our typical clients will see us for the following appointments:
- Audiological Evaluations
- Hearing Aid Consultations
- Hearing Aid Fitting & Service
- Assistive Listening Device (ALD) Consultations
All of our clients are invited to attend our monthly Communication Solutions Workshop, as well as come in for daily hearing aid walk-in hours from 1:00pm to 2:00pm, Monday through Friday, for cleaning, services, and basic troubleshooting.
For clients or existing hearing aid users who need additional support at work, we also offer Work Accommodation Evaluations.
Still have more questions about how to obtain a hearing aid? Struggling to cope with hearing loss? Need resources to assist in your job search? We’ve compiled a list of programs and organizations that can help.
