Holy City Hearing was recently featured in an article on CharlestonPhysicians.com! We discussed the importance of hearing, not only for the individual, but for the whole family.

Why Choose Holy City Hearing?

Holy City Hearing is one of the last family-owned independent practices in the Tri-County area surrounding Charleston – often referred to as the Low Country. Unlike other practices who are focused on just selling hearing aids, we take the time to get to know our patients and we always treat them like our family. With two locations, in Mount Pleasant and Summerville, we provide patient-centered care to adults of all ages. We will always go above and beyond to help our patients, no matter their degree of hearing loss, lifestyle, or budget.

 At Holy City Hearing, we understand getting hearing aids can be a big commitment. That’s why we offer a free test drive of hearing aids, so you can try them before you buy them. Try them at home, try them at your favorite restaurant, try them in all your environments! We take pride in making sure everyone has the best fit possible, with no commitment.

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

Whether you visit us at our Mount Pleasant office or in Summerville, you will always be greeted by name and by a friendly face. Upon your arrival our front office staff will have some paperwork ready for you to fill out. Then one of our hearing specialists will come greet you and bring you back for the appointment.

  1. We will first go over your paperwork with you and discuss what brought you in. Before the hearing exam, we will explain what you can expect and we will even show you a blank audiogram so you can see what we will be looking for.
  2. Then we will look inside your ear with a video otoscope, which allows for a detailed viewing of your ear canal. We want to make sure your ear is clear of any built-up earwax before we continue.
  3. After we’ve ensured your ears are clear, then we will perform the hearing test. The hearing test doesn’t take long and is painless. We will test your ability to hear different tones and sounds at high and low frequencies.
  4. We will go over the results of your audiogram with you and answer any questions you may have.
  5. Then we will show you a pair of hearing aids in our office so you can see what they look like. Depending on your treatment plan, we also offer free trial “Test Drive” (provided your selection is not predetermined by your insurance policy).
