Although the world is a strange place right now, our key focus remains on our patients and the people in the Madison and Huntsville communities.  

And while we feel that hearing is an essential thing, we are also aware that our practice is not a life-sustaining business.

So from the advice of our county, state, and federal government and public health agencies, our doors remain closed for in-person appointments.

This is where our drop-off service comes in.

To ensure our patients don’t miss a beat during the lockdown, we have introduced our drop-off service to provide any required cleaning or repairs to your hearing aids.

How does the drop-off service work? 

If you’re experiencing issues with your hearing aids, call us at (256) 319-4327 to schedule a time to drop off your hearing aid in the box at the front of our office.

When you pull up to our clinic, give us a call, and we will collect the aid while you wait in your car.

Once we have diagnosed the problem, we can repair, clean, and thoroughly sanitize your hearing aid before returning it to the box for you to retrieve.

By introducing our drop-off service, we can still be there for all of your hearing health needs while keeping you, our patients, and our team safe.

If you would like to schedule a drop-off time with us at Alabama Hearing Associates, then please call our hotline at (256) 319-4327.

Stay safe,
Dr. Jan Liles & Dr. Susan Sheehy.

Do you know somebody that needs to see this? Why not share it?

Dr. Jan Liles

Dr. Liles earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Montevallo and her master’s degree from the University of Alabama. From 1991 to 2001, she worked with two ENT medical practices and initiated one of the first newborn hearing screening programs in the state. In 2002, she was awarded a doctorate in audiology from the University of Florida. Dr. Liles and her longtime best friend, Dr. Sheehy, founded Alabama Hearing Associates in January 2002.
    Basic Hearing Test

    A basic hearing test begins with an air conduction test. You will be seated in a soundproof booth and single-use, foam earphones will be inserted into your ear canals. The Audiologist will ask you to push a button or raise your hand when you barely hear a series of beeps (tones) presented at various frequencies (pitches) to obtain your air conduction thresholds.

    To determine whether your hearing loss is a conductive (mechanical) loss, sensorineural (permanent) loss or combination of the two, we perform a bone conduction test.  

    For this test, a head band is place on the bone behind one of the ears to obtain your bone conduction thresholds. This process provides a different form of sound transmission using vibration, which bypasses the eardrum and the middle ear bones and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. When you hear the beeps/tones, you will push a button or raise your hand.

    If bone conduction thresholds are better than air conduction thresholds (through the foam inserts), you have a conductive hearing loss. This suggests a problem with the mechanical structures (moving parts) of the ears.

    Conductive hearing loss is often a medically treatable condition for which we will provide you with a referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician. However, if bone and air conduction thresholds match, it indicates a sensorineural hearing loss (permanent), and the treatment will likely involve hearing aids.
