Hearing and communicating with the world around you
You can ease the impact of hearing loss and improve your ability to communicate by getting your hearing checked and exploring treatment options with an audiologist. You may have a hearing problem if you have trouble following the conversation when two or more people are talking at the same time or frequently ask others to repeat what they say. The older we get, the more likely we may have disabling hearing loss, but hearing loss can occur at any age.
To assess hearing issues, an audiologist will conduct a comprehensive hearing test and evaluation, then provide you with treatment recommendations and follow-up.
Hearing loss can be corrected with amplification devices like hearing aids, ear plugs, and rehabilitation therapies. ARC audiologists will work with you to make adjustments to fit hearing aids or other amplification devices to help you communicate with the world around you.
Remember, even if you buy your hearing aids over the counter, your audiologist can help you by assessing your degree of hearing loss. They'll also explain your options to protect and improve your hearing when hearing loss is present and properly program your hearing aids.
A comprehensive diagnostic hearing evaluation is a full assessment of your hearing ability.
You can protect your hearing with custom-made hearing protection ear molds or ear plugs. Ear molds are custom-made in-the-ear devices that protect your hearing with noise-canceling abilities and channel and amplify sound.
Custom-made earmolds can help you stay focused in the loudest of environments at work or activities.
ARC audiologists can help you find the proper ear protection to keep you going in you're creative environment.
Evaluate your needs to improve your ability to communicate with the world around you and explore treatment options with an ARC audiologist.
Hearing aids can be customized to your hearing needs and lifestyle with the goal to make your hearing sharper and last longer. ARC offers a 30-day trial period with unlimited visits to help ensure a proper fit.
Hearing evaluations and hearing tests help determine if you are experiencing hearing loss and its severity.
ARC offers a wide selection of hearing protection systems to preserve and protect your hearing. We offer custom and universal fit devices to satisfy your level of comfort.
Audiologic, or hearing rehabilitation and counseling, aims to help you relearn the hearing abilities you may have lost due to hearing loss.
Conductive hearing loss happens when sounds cannot get through the outer and middle ear, and it may be hard to hear soft sounds or louder sounds may be muffled.
Digital hearing aids convert sound waves into digital signals to produce an exact duplication of sound.
Hearing aids help carry sounds from the environment into your ear and make them louder.
Older adults are the largest group affected by hearing loss. Things that lead to hearing loss include age-related hearing loss (presbycusis), exposure to loud noise, and hereditary causes.
Hearing problems could be an early sign of hearing loss. This can include changes in noise volume around you and trouble understanding others when they talk.
Your inner ears may get damaged if exposed to extremely loud noises or around loud noises for long periods of time. This is called noise-induced hearing loss.
Hearing loss can lead to delays in your child's ability to make sounds, learn to speak, and communicate.
There are 3 main types of pediatric hearing loss: sensorineural, conductive, and mixed. These types of hearing loss can be present at birth or can occur after birth.
Presbycusis is an age-related hearing loss problem. This hearing loss happens slowly in both ears.
Hearing loss can affect more than just your hearing. The mental and emotional effects of hearing loss may include anger, denial, depression, anxiety, isolation, and other psychosocial issues.
Sensorineural hearing loss happens when there is damage in your inner ear.
Things that lead to severe hearing loss include age-related hearing loss (presbycusis), exposure to loud noise, and hereditary causes. Older adults are the largest group affected by hearing loss.
Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) doctors, staff, and leadership are committed to providing our community with high quality convenient care. One of the ways we demonstrate this priority is through our online transparency.
You can review our provider ratings and comments on our web site with the confidence that they are all based on verified visits. We post all patient feedback relevant to the entire visit and only refrain from posting comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients.
The below guide provides details about how we collect and share our patient feedback.
ARC partnered with Press Ganey to collect patient feedback about their doctor’s visit. We gather feedback from text surveys that are sent after the visit. Press Ganey is an independent third party customer feedback company that provides the technology to collect the feedback and display ratings and comments on our web site. All ratings are submitted by actual patients and verified by ARC.
Patients for whom we have a mobile phone number receive a text survey within two hours of checking in for their visit. Patients are asked to complete the survey and provide ratings and comments regarding their experience at different touch points of their visit. We use this feedback to recognize doctors and staff, identify issues we can correct, and enhance our care.
ARC posts all positive and negative patient feedback that is relevant to the entire visit. We refrain from posting comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients.
ARC asks questions that touch on the overall patient experience related to their visit. Anyone seeking detailed information about each question can view the ratings for each specific question on the Reviews tab on the provider bio page on the website. We calculate our provider star ratings based on the responses to question number six below. We calculate our location star ratings based on the responses to all the below questions.
Since more recent data provides a more accurate picture, we require a minimum of 30 patient surveys per doctor in the last 12 months before we post a physician’s rating.
ARC physicians and staff review all comments and act to rectify issues. Since the purpose of the feedback is to allow us to improve the overall patient experience, we display the last 90 days of comments which are the most relevant for the practice.
No. Only patients having an outpatient visit by an ARC physician receive a survey. The results are based entirely from patients who have actually been treated by the physician in our clinics.
Comments are reviewed and approved prior to being published to the website. If a comment contains any personally identifiable information, that information will be removed from the comment.
