Dr. Obrien, Audiology
Our Audiologists are certified in Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment. Tinnitus, which is basically “ringing in the ears” affects millions and has no known cure. The Neuromonics approach is FDA cleared, and is a convenient, noninvasive way to helped to “desensitize tinnitus disturbance for long term benefit”. Its efficacy has been demonstrated in peer-reviewed medical journals.
We believe in a thorough, individualized approach to tinnitus treatment and spend time with each patient to address his or her specific needs. Our Audiologists are hearing professionals who are trained in and understand all aspects of hearing loss.
We are committed to staying current with hearing instrument and hearing assistive technology to help our patients improve their lives through better hearing.
“Now, more than ever before, technology can really improve the lives of so many who struggle with hearing loss and/or tinnitus”.
WakeENT, located in Cary, NC, provides hearing loss, hearing aids and other Audiology services in a smaller, more personalized setting that always centers around you, the Patient.
Our audiologists are board certified and specialize in the diagnosis of hearing loss and fitting of hearing amplification devices.
What If I Have A Hearing Problem?
- Patients who suspect they have a hearing loss are tested in our sound suite.
- Typically, a medical evaluation will also be performed to make sure there are no treatable conditions contributing to the hearing loss.
- Patients with hearing loss are seen for individual or family consultations to discuss their unique hearing needs and environments.
- If hearing aids are required, they are custom fit to each individual's hearing test results as well as any unique lifestyle needs. For example, the type of aid needed by a kindergarten teacher, a business person who attends multiple conferences and meetings weekly, or a retired individual who spends most of his or her time at home will be different.
