The Audiology Offices provides audiological diagnostic and rehabilitation services to infants, children and adults in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula Areas of the Virginia Chesapeake Bay. In addition to our main office, located in Kilmarnock, we provide full services at two satellite offices in Gloucester and Warsaw, Virginia.
We provide hearing solutions and recommendations to patients of all ages, including the evaluation, selection and fitting of hearing devices. We work with various levels of hearing aid technology and incorporate advanced electroacoustic analysis assessment to maximize hearing success. Aural rehabilitation and patient counseling are an integral part of our ongoing patient service.
Internists, family practice physicians and other healthcare providers refer numerous patients to us for audiology services.
We are eager to use our years of knowledge to help you hear well. Please call our office to schedule an appointment or to request literature be sent to you. We are hear to help and ready to listen.
Our practice has a large educational component, helping us to give back to the community. We provide consultations to local schools, which involves training school nurses on hearing screening protocol and helping to develop learning plans for hearing-impaired students. We also recommend, train and help maintain FM systems and other assistive devices for hearing impaired students.
Please read the following review from one of our patients:
Relief from a mind-numbing exhaustion at the end of a work-day is the greatest benefit of signing up with Ann DePaolo and Janie Anderson at The Audiology Offices LLC in Kilmarnock, Virginia five years ago. These two experts on hearing loss showed me that although I could hear folks, I needed to invest significant physical effort to understand folks. That effort was wearing me out!
My job involves listening to folks with all my might. As an independent lawyer, I deal with folks who are angry, confused, upset and just plain scared in matters mostly related to their employment. Not only do I have to understand them when they are at their worst but I must also win their trust in order to help them. My left hand presses my phone into my left ear while I scribble notes with my right hand or face-to-face I must keep up a respectful and empathetic expression while trying desperately to make out what’s being said.
At the Audiology offices, the experts knew exactly how frustrated I felt (so frustrated that I was considering turning in my law license and retiring).
Instead, I was fitted with a pair of “state-of-the-art” Oticon hearing devices, plus a transponder to connect me to the telephone, not only wirelessly and digitally, but hands-free too! It works for the internet, for television, for concerts and I have tiny wireless microphone that clips on my client’s collar. And what control I can exercise to moderate the sound I receive! I can shoot the listening peak straight forward, or all around my head. I can control the volume with a touch to the transponder that I wear like a necklace.
Now when I introduce myself to a new prospective client, I say: “I am hearing impaired but I wear the very latest electronic equipment to insure that I hear and understand every word you say loud and clear.” My law practice is busier than ever. My working endurance has improved beyond description. When the next generation of Oticon products became available, I begged the Audiology experts to get me on board and the new version was better than I could at first believe. I am delighted that I did not give up–saying to myself “Well, you are getting older.” Moreover, I am lucky to have consulted real audiologists whose products include on-going service and on-demand help, instead of self-prescribing a bargain priced gadget with no backup assistance.
