Hearing Aid Styles
Selecting the appropriate hearing aid is an important decision, and one that may seem overwhelming considering the many brands, features, options, styles and price points from which to choose. Our audiologists provide comprehensive services to ensure your success with hearing aids. At your initial appointment, we will evaluate your hearing and assess your individual communication and listening needs to determine if you are a candidate for hearing aids. You have the option of being evaluated by one of our ear physicians to rule out other causes of hearing loss such as excessive wax in the ear canal, middle ear fluid, infection, tumors etc. Once you are medically cleared and deemed a good candidate for hearing aids, we will review a number of factors which will guide us in selecting the most appropriate hearing aids for you. These factors include your lifestyle, your manual dexterity, any visual issues, your personal preferences, and budget. Your hearing aids will be programmed on a computer by your audiologist and you will learn how to appropriately use and care for your hearing aids.
The selection process may feel overwhelming, however our experienced audiologists will help you find comfortable hearing aids that are well-suited for your hearing needs. Selecting the most appropriate style for you is a function of several factors including the degree of your hearing loss, listening situations, lifestyle, your manual dexterity, cosmetic appearance and personal preferences.
Hearing aids are available in several different styles, each of which is tailored to the user’s needs. The two basic styles are In The Ear (ITE) and Behind The Ear (BTE).
We offer a full range of digital hearing aids from the world’s major hearing aid manufacturers including Phonak, Resound, Oticon, Siemens and Widex. The products from these manufacturers provide a comprehensive selection of state of the art hearing aid technology, allowing us to address the individual preferences and needs of our patients.

Dr. Winkler is an extremely talented and dedicated physician who listens carefully and considers the whole health history as he develops a treatment plan…He’s appropriately cautious and will demur on a procedure if there’s a safer alternative. However, if a procedure IS warranted, he has the talent to do it well.

My child’s pediatrician recommended Dr. Winkler as her first choice to perform a tonsillectomy…Dr. Winkler was matter-of-fact, friendly, unhurried, professional, and has a wicked sense of humor…His follow-up care was thorough, kind, accurate, and timely. He’s a top notch doctor!

My husband has been fighting a rare and deadly cancer that was found in his nose by Dr. Hao for over six years now. We both truly believe that if not for the professionalism and concern that has shown us over those years, that my husband would not be alive today. We cannot praise Dr. Hao enough.
