Six Reasons Why Patients Choose Alabama Hearing

#1 - Hearing Professionals You Can Trust

At Alabama Hearing Associates, you will receive the highest level of hearing care and advice by respected local audiology professionals, including “The AuDCouple”.

The AuDCouple, Dr. Susan Sheehy and Dr. Jan Liles, founded Alabama Hearing Associates in 2002. They are two of Alabama’s most trusted Doctors of Audiology with their audiology-focused podcast and growing social media following. 

 

#2 - Preferred Choice by Professionals

For working professionals who are busy changing the world, taking time off for hearing care can be inconvenient. 

As we care for the hearing of some of our community’s greatest minds, we’ve become the preferred choice for professionals with flexible scheduling, telehealth appointments and remote programming for many hearing aids. 

#3 - 28 Years of Experience

When it comes to our health, we all want to work with experienced medical professionals.

With Alabama Hearing Associates, you can rest assured that you’re being cared for by a highly experienced team, who provide audiological best practices for every patient.

#4 - Unique Journey to Better Hearing

We have developed a “Patient Journey” which outlines our methodical, evidence-based approach to healthy hearing. Our treatment plans allow our patients to hear better and continue bringing their unique contributions to the world, their communities and their families.  

Our unique “Patient Journey” is your roadmap to better hearing. 

 

#5 - Trusted by Physicians

Many local physicians refer their patients to the Doctors of Audiology at Alabama Hearing Associates. 

Sensorineural hearing loss is commonly associated with other health challenges, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease. We are proud to be the trusted audiologists that local physicians turn to, and we appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the overall health of their patients. 

#6 - Convenient In-Home Hearing Care with TeleAudiology

You asked, we answered. We are proud to be the first audiologists in North Alabama to introduce ‘Teleaudiology’ – audiology and hearing care from the comfort of your home using video calling technology.

  • I’m in my early 50’s and was very reluctant to getting hearing aids. I remember thinking I’m too young and felt I would be thought less of in getting them.

    My experience with AHA was awesome! I felt right at home with everyone there. After evaluating my hearing, and presented with options I chose to move forward. Needless to say I wasn’t aware of how much I wasn’t hearing! Wow what a difference ....

    If your looking or on the fence go see Dr. Jan you will not be disappointed. You will be treated like family!

  • Not only are they very knowledgeable about the latest products, they don't just try and sell the latest-greatest (most expensive) aides. They make sure the aides are right for the patient, and genuinely care about satisfaction.

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.
