Recognized For Best Practices

At Birkdale Audiology we believe following Audiology Best Practices to bring our patients the top level of patient care. This includes-  including utilizing real ear measurements through speech mapping for optimal hearing device fitting, and complete diagnostic testing speech in noise testing and cognitive assessment, and ANSI testing of hearing devices.
 
Real Ear Measurement/ Speech Mapping This is recommended for every patient wearing hearing devices. The sound of the hearing device varies depending on the shape of the ear and ear canal. During real ear measurement, a small microphone is placed in the patient’s ear canal and the hearing aid is placed on the ear. The patient will listen to varying volumes of speech to measure how the hearing device is functioning on their ear. Adjustments are made until the hearing devices match the prescriptive gain needed for their hearing loss. Following this Best Practice method allows the Audiologist to truly program the device to the individual. 
 
Dr. Knolhoff is proud to be recognized as a member of Dr. Cliff Olson’s Best Practice Provider Network, which validates her commitment to providing the best quality of care for her patients.
