Sophisticated Hearing is excited to announce the Grand Opening of our new state of the art hearing care center. The office will be moving one half mile from our previous location in Ho-Ho-Kus. The New address is: 531 N. Maple Avenue in Ridgewood, NJ. The expanded facility has ample parking and is handicap accessible. The large space includes two sound-treated booths for hearing testing and multiple consultation rooms with the newest Audiology equipment available on the market.
Sophisticated Hearing has and will continue to be dedicated to assisting you and your family with your hearing care needs. We offer evidence-based and gold-standard practices for hearing evaluations, hearing-aid fittings and tinnitus management. Dr. Olson is in-network with many health insurance networks including Aetna, Cigna, Medicare and United Healthcare and United Healthcare Oxford. Even though not every health insurance plan covers hearing related services, Sophisticated Hearing is happy to check your insurance benefits to see what coverage is available to you. As an independent practice, we are committed to your individual needs and work with most of the major hearing aid manufacturers.
Are you aware that approximately 15% of adults in the United States report some difficulty hearing? Hearing loss is the third most common chronic condition in older adults. Hearing loss is an invisible condition that generally occurs gradually over many years. Because of this, it is possible that a person has hearing loss and may not be aware of it. We often make excuses for why we didn’t hear someone: “the restaurant was too loud”, “I wasn’t paying attention” or we accuse someone of not speaking clearly. Because of this it is important to have your hearing tested regularly. The American Speech Language and Hearing Association recommends individuals with normal hearing have a hearing test every ten years. Once you turn fifty years of age, it is recommended that you have your hearing tested every three years. When someone has hearing loss then a hearing test every 1-2 years is recommended for monitoring purposes.
If you have questions or concerns about your hearing health, please contact Sophisticated Hearing to schedule an appointment. Your hearing test and consultation with Dr. Olson will be performed in an unrushed, professional and caring manner. As an audiologist Dr. Olson can explain the auditory system and your hearing results so that you have the knowledge you need to make the necessary personal decisions regarding your Hearing Health.
When you are Ready to Hear…We are Ready to Help.
