Trusted Local Hearing Care Available For Milford, CT

The Paugusset tribe of Native Americans made the area we now call Milford, CT their home thousands of years before members of the New Haven Colony began to purchase land from them in 1639. Taking advantage of water from the Wepawaug River, settlers built and operated a grist mill, leading to the town’s name.

During the Revolutionary War, the Milford section of the Boston Post Road was blockaded by Continental forces, leading to the building of Fort Trumbull. Our community was known for shipbuilding, farming, oystering, and some industrial facilities during the 19th century, as well as a beach resort for residents of New Haven and Bridgeport.

Milford Green is the site of the annual Oyster Festival each August, which has drawn large musical acts and thousands of visitors each year. Our reputation as a beach resort lives on in our rocky beaches, Silver Sands State Park, the Connecticut Audubon Society Coastal Center at Milford Point, Charles Island, two golf courses, numerous other recreational facilities, and the Walnut Beach Concert Series held every Sunday afternoon throughout the summer.

Better hearing adds to the enjoyment of our community’s beaches and historical sites, leading to a richer, more rewarding quality of life for residents and visitors. Thanks to our co-founder, Dr. Bauman, who has a major impact on the hearing care industry, and our AVI New England clinic in Hamden, Milford, CT and nearby communities have access to personalized and local solutions to address hearing loss, tinnitus, balance disorders, and other hearing care services we provide.

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.
