Trusted Local Hearing Care Available For Fairfield, CT

Recognized as the best place to live in Connecticut and ranked 44th on Money Magazine’s list of best places to live in America, Fairfield, CT was one of two principal settlements of the Connecticut Colony in southwestern Connecticut. As the settlement grew, several towns (Redding, Weston, Easton, Bridgeport, and Westport) broke off and formed independent communities.

Though most of the colonists in their section of the colony were Tory sympathizers, those in Fairfield supported the cause for independence early in the Revolutionary War, which led to the burning of Fairfield in 1779. Our community remained primarily agrarian until after World War I as the large munitions industry in nearby Bridgeport began to boom and workers built their homes in Fairfield.

Bigelow Tea Company and Sturm, Ruger & Co. firearms have their headquarters in our community, providing employment to our residents along with Fairfield University and Sacred Heart University. A wealth of recreational opportunities are also available in our community, which features five public beaches on the five-mile stretch of our Long Island Sound Coastline, the South Benson Marina and Ye Yacht Yard, Lake Mohegan, and the Cascades waterfalls, and a variety of sports activities at the SportsPlex.

Interaction with family, friends, and neighbors contributes to a more rewarding lifestyle, but hearing challenges can limit its benefits. Fortunately, Dr. Bauman, a major contributor in the field of audiology worldwide and co-founder of AVI New England, makes it easy for those with hearing challenges in Fairfield and surrounding communities to receive personalized and local solutions that address hearing loss, tinnitus, sound sensitivity issues, balance disorders, and other hearing care services offered at our Norwalk, CT clinic.

Hearing Assessments

A Comprehensive Hearing Assessment: Your First Step To Better Hearing

multi coloured blocks

In spite of the fact that hearing loss is the third most common physical health condition in America, most people regularly have their eyes, teeth, cholesterol, and blood checked regularly but tend to put off hearing tests as a part of their health screening regimen.

The World Health Organization reports that 1 in 8 individuals experience some level of hearing loss and predicts a doubling of hearing loss cases over the next 30 years, which makes regular hearing assessments a critical part of monitoring your health.

The gradual onset of hearing loss makes it difficult to identify the day-to-day changes, making it difficult for you to catch it in its earliest stages. However, you can protect yourself against the damage by scheduling annual or bi-annual hearing tests.

If you want to know the truth about what’s going on with your hearing or that of your loved one, the only way to measure hearing loss and address it before it creates further damage is a hearing assessment.

Tinnitus Evaluations & Treatment

Tinnitus Treatment From Who The Experts Turn To For Help

multi coloured blocks

If you have ever experienced tinnitus (ringing, humming, or buzzing in your ears), then you already know how the condition impacts your quality of life. It is impossible to escape the agonizing and overwhelming presence of tinnitus, regardless of the activity you’re engaged in or if you just want to relax.

Tinnitus symptoms often go unnoticed or come and go in its early stages, but symptoms like sounds intensifying, loss of sleep, increased stress, and decreased productivity are common consequences associated with the condition. Greater awareness of the condition increases the level of stress, which in turn increases the intensity and greater awareness of the condition, producing a snowballing effect.

With 40+ years as an audiologist, Dr. Bauman has established a tinnitus and sound over-sensitivity clinic that uses proprietary treatment therapies he teaches to national and international practitioners.

If you or a loved one is battling tinnitus, turn to who the experts trust for advice and support regarding tinnitus by scheduling a tinnitus assessment today.
