Following guidelines of local, state and federal health officials, the CDC and the WHO, we have begun re-opening our hearing centers. However, the health of our patients, hearing care professionals and associates remains our top priority. For more information and a list of the locations that are open, click here.

Hearing Services

Hearing Aid Accessories, Assistive Listening Devices, Hearing Evaluation Services, and More

Dr. Gwyneth Newcomb and Dr. Mary Adams are committed to providing patients the best of audiological care. They offer professional hearing evaluations, state-of-the-art hearing aids and hearing aid accessories at Bowie Hearing Center in Bowie and at their sister office, Red Hat Audiology in Silver Spring.

Comprehensive Audiological Hearing Evaluations

All audiology services begin with a complete and accurate hearing evaluation.  This determines the type and degree of hearing loss.  Our audiologists counsel the patient and make a plan of treatment that will meet each individual’s needs.

At the beginning of the hearing evaluation, the patient’s medical history and specific hearing concerns are discussed.  Then the ears are checked for earwax and the condition of the ear canals and eardrums are assessed.  Hearing testing is conducted with the patient seated comfortably in a sound proof room while they listen for various tones and words.

If the testing shows some degree of hearing loss, treatment options are discussed.  All efforts are made to provide the best treatment options that meet each patient’s particular needs.  If test results indicate that there may be a treatable medical condition, a referral will be made to the appropriate medical professional.

To schedule an appointment for a hearing evaluation, contact Bowie Hearing Center in Bowie at (301) 464-6701 or Red Hat Audiology in Silver Spring at (301)438-3280 today.  Ask about how you can receive a free hearing screening.

Assistive Listening Devices

Numerous devices are available that can help hearing impaired persons be alerted to the sounds around them, such as specialized alarm clocks, smoke alarms, or doorbells.   There are also amplified phones that improve the way people hear over the telephone.   People who have documented hearing loss in many cases are eligible for free amplified or captioned phones.  Schedule a hearing evaluatuion to find out if you qualify for these free products.  Other assistive products for the hearing impaired include:

Hearing Aid Service and Repair

We are here to service your hearing aids whenever necessary to keep them functioning well.  We service and repair most brands of hearing aids.

We also offer a wide variety of accessories that can be used to help keep the hearing aids working well for you. We sell batteries for any hearing aid make or model.
