Trusted Local Hearing Care Available For Branford, CT

English settlers of New Haven purchased the area called Totoket from the Mattabesech Nation in 1638, establishing what would become Branford, CT. Originally named after Brentford, a town in England, the name was shortened to Branford as the area became a loosely associated collection of rural settlements until the introduction of the railroad in the mid-19th century.

Railroad construction of the New York, New Haven, and Hartford line relied on granite from Stony Creek quarries, becoming an economic boom for the community. Once on the radar, Branford became a popular resort area until its resort image faded in the mid 20th century, which gave way to the development of high-technology and pharmaceutical companies, like 454 Life Sciences and Durata Therapeutics, focused on the development of differentiated therapeutic solutions for advance patient care in infectious disease and acute illnesses.

From rural life to railroads and resorts to high-tech and pharmaceuticals, Auditory and Vestibular Institute of New England (AVI New England) is a logical progression in the growth and development of Branford. Our trusted hearing care and the innovations of AVI’s co-founder, Dr. Bauman, MS, Eng., Ed.D., F-AAA provide therapeutic solutions for patients with mild to advanced hearing challenges.

How Can We Help?

Hearing Assessments

When Was Your Last Hearing Test?

multi coloured blocks

Most people regularly have their eyes, teeth and bloodwork tested but rarely do they include checking their hearing.

It is reported that hearing loss is the third most common physical health condition, impacting globally 1 in 8 individuals. The World Health Organization predicts that hearing loss will almost double in the next 30 years; this makes a regular hearing assessment critically important.

The biggest challenge is that hearing loss often occurs slowly and gradually, making it almost impossible to notice on a day-to-day change.

Typically, our loved ones are first to notice that we are experiencing a hearing challenge before we do.

Having a regular hearing assessment allows for early detection of hearing loss ensuring the right preventive measures are taken so that your hearing health is optimally cared for.

If you are concerned about your hearing or a loved one’s hearing, we highly encouraged you to schedule a hearing assessment. It is quick, non-invasive, and you’ll receive the results immediately.

Prescription Hearing Aid Technology

Helping You to Find the Right Prescription Hearing Aid Technology Based on Your Unique Circumstances, Lifestyle, and Budget

Having invented the most widely used hearing aid in the world, it is fair to say that Dr. Bauman, an engineer and an audiologist, and his team, know best about the auditory mechanism, the brain associated with speech and language and the electronics of hearing devices to make the best recommendation for your individualized hearing issues.

Despite the significant progression in hearing technology over the past decade, it is predicted by the World Health Organization, that 83% of people who can

benefit from hearing technology are still reluctant to take first step toward better hearing. There is still stigma associated with wearing hearing aids. There remains a false belief that hearing aids are the large, clunky devices that our grandparents used to wear. The truth is today’s hearing technology is incredibly small, discreet, and smart.

Hearing devices no longer just magnify the sounds you hear, now they smartly have the capability to amplify your hearing and your life, allowing you to engage and enjoy your family and friends.
