Live Better Hearing’s primary focus is to create an unsurpassed patient experience through our caring and highly trained doctors of audiology. Unlike most “hearing aid places,” we are highly specialized on the healthcare side of hearing and balance care. We simply do not do hearing tests like big retail chains like Costco, Beltone, or Miracle-Ear. We provide world-class diagnostic hearing and balance evaluations and treatment and use advanced testing to understand our patients’ hearing.
Did you know that a hearing test from a retail store can look exactly like your friend’s hearing test, but your ability to hear can be completely different? A retail hearing aid store will likely give you and your friend the same hearing aids with the same programming. But we don’t do that. We perform proper diagnostic testing, and when we fit hearing aids, we follow our proprietary 30-day hearing aid fitting protocol to guarantee 100% patient satisfaction using real ear measurements.
Our hearing aids are also world-class. We select from the top manufacturers across the globe, with a preference for American made hearing aids when possible. We make custom impressions to match your ear perfectly. And we carefully follow-up with our patients regularly to ensure ongoing satisfaction.
Of course, we also offer boutique hearing aids like the IIC style hearing aids by Starkey and the hassle-free invisible Lyric hearing aids for our selective patients who value discretion and ease of use. We have many patients who are top officials, lawyers, tech moguls, actors, musicians, doctors, and diplomats who prefer these types of devices. The Lyric, as an example, is like a contact lens for the ear requiring virtually no maintenance and no batteries to change or charge.
Please don’t get the wrong idea, though; we do not only see the rich and famous; we have patients from all walks of life, ages, and races. If you are ready to take your hearing to the next level, we can help. Also, if you already have hearing aids from somewhere else and need assistance, we can optimize them to help you hear better.
We treat patients the way they should be treated – with kindness, expertise, and exceptional follow-up care. In our region, discerning patients expect to see highly credentialed providers for their hearing and balance care. This is why both physicians and patients trust our practice. We have a supervising audiologist at every location and accept all major insurance plans for a full range of diagnostic and retail services and products. We have excellent relationships with local universities and prestigious hospitals, including Johns Hopkins, the University of Maryland, and Georgetown University. We are among the very few clinics in the country with two rotary chairs for advanced balance evaluations. We help children and adults with their hearing and balance, and we are the practice of choice for Universities to send their interns for training as well.
For these reasons, as well as the reputation of many of our providers, we hope that you will trust us to provide you with the very best hearing and balance care. We look forward to your visit.
