Southbury Audiology is patient-focused with a commitment to continued education. We strive to provide the most current test protocols and best practices for hearing care. We encourage involvement of the whole family in the rehabilitative/habilitative process to ensure best outcomes for successful communication and listening strategies. It is important for the patient (or parents of young children) to have a thorough understanding of all results and recommendations.
We are equipped to test patients of all ages comprehensively. Hearing ability has a significant impact on an individual's overall sense of well-being and cognitive skills. Therefore, not only is the patient and their family apprised of test results and recommendations but their primary care and referring physicians are also included.
Recommendations may include a trial period with hearing aids, use of assistive listening devices, a referral to specialty physicians for medical intervention/cochlear implant assessment, or auditory processing therapies and management strategies.
Together, Doctors Alex and Bakewell will continue to provide you with exceptional care including:
