Welcome To Our Office

We are all familiar with how our vision deteriorates during our later years in life. We may not be as aware of gradual hearing loss, which affects us as we age. Hearing loss gradually occurs in a similar way to vision loss, but can go undetected. Hearing loss can lead to safety and health issues, in addition to affecting our quality of life. Because of this link between hearing and vision loss, Dr. Lee Shettle has added hearing services as a part of our expanded clinical services for patients who are over the age of 58. Dr. Shettle can perform a brief hearing screening evaluation, and based on the results then be able to refer you to our in-office hearing instrument specialist. Our hearing instrument specialist will conduct a thorough hearing assessment using our state-of-the art computerized hearing software and a professional grade hearing booth. We also have a medical grade otoscope to inspect the ear canal, which is displayed on a television monitor. This thorough hearing assessment is complimentary. Once the evaluation is complete, our hearing instrument specialist will explain the results of the examination to you and your family to determine the best treatment options available.
