Hearing testing is non-invasive and provides patients with a clear picture of their current hearing abilities. Dr. Kalady will spend time learning about your medical history as well as your current communication/hearing challenges. The results of your hearing test will be represented on a graph called an Audiogram. Dr. Kalady will explain in detail the results of your testing.
If the hearing testing indicates you do in fact have a hearing loss, Dr. Kalady will discuss treatment options. Most hearing loss is treatable with the use of hearing aids. Dr. Kalady fits patients with advanced hearing aids from the best hearing aid manufacturers. She will take into consideration your communication needs, your hearing loss, your lifestyle and your budget when making a recommendation.
Hearing Aid Programming/Reprogramming
Dr. Kalady follows industry best practices, expertly programming your hearing aids using real ear measurements. This allows Dr. Kalady to program your aids precisely to your unique hearing loss, resulting in better outcomes for patients and no "guessing" your prescription.
Dr. Kalady is able to reprogram hearing aids not purchased from her practice originally. If you need your hearing aids to be updated to your current hearing loss, she will evaluate your hearing and program them using real ear measurements.
Hearing Aid Maintenance & Repairs
Great hearing healthcare is a process, not a one-time fitting. All patients are encouraged to schedule regular appointments with Dr. Kalady for routine maintenance and check-ups. This ensures your hearing aids are working optimally and your hearing aid experience is the best it can be.
If your hearing aids ever require repairs, Dr. Kalady can either fix them right in her office or send them to the manufacturer for more extensive repairs.
Dr. Meg Kalady is from the Philadelphia suburbs and has been practicing audiology for the last 30 years. She completed her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, and she received her doctorate in audiology in 2012 from AT Still University.
Dr. Kalady is amazing! I have been wearing hearing aids for 12 years (since my late 50's) and I have never had such an extensive, thorough examination. In addition to being very professional she is also a very good listener. She "hears" your problems and strives to find the very best fit for your hearing needs. It is amazing the adjustments she can make that improve my hearing and give me confidence. I had resigned myself to accepting that my hearing would be a handicap in social situations, missing a lot of what was being said and unable to be a part of the conversations. With her help I can now be a participant again! I highly recommend Kalady Audiology. She's a gem!
I have had diminished hearing for several years, but was unable to get a satisfactory answer about improving it. My GP recommended Kalady Audiology to me. Dr. Kalady did a thorough job of testing my hearing and spent a more than adequate amount of time to explain the various options. I have been using the hearing aids for several months now and I have found that, not only is my hearing better, but I no longer have to "drop out" of conversations because I don't want to constantly interrupt and ask for someone to repeat everything. An excellent experience at the office and definitely a better quality of life. I highly recommend her.
I’m so glad I used Kalady Audiology for my hearing needs. Dr. Kalady's ability to be fully aware of what my needs were made me feel comfortable through the whole process. Another very important point I’d like to make is that she uses “Best practices” to fit hearing aids. Whoever is reading this please google “best practices” for fitting of hearing aids. Dr. Kalady is the only audiologist I was able to find who does this. It’s extremely important in my opinion. Thank you so much Dr. Kalady. I’m so glad I used your services!!
I am completely stunned by how well I can hear with my new hearing aids. I never thought I would ever hear this well. I can hear clearly everything that is said on TV [men or women] and at a very low volume. My wife is absolutely thrilled with my ability to hear her and the low volume on the TV. My sports car has a totally different sound than it had with my old aids. My old aids made everything sound loud, but it was hard to understand what was being said. Dr. Kalady is the best!
