Caring and Compassionate Audiological Care Near Indian Head, MD
The site of a naval base specializing in gun and rocket propellants since 1890, Indian Head had long been home to the Mattawoman band of the Piscataway Nation who were encountered by the first English settlers who called the land the “Indian Head” peninsula. The site was a gathering spot for volunteers during the Civil War as well as for Union Army Balloon Corps reconnaissance of Confederate troop movements across the Potomac.
Indian Head was a thriving small town during World War II all the way up until the late 1960s when the construction of St. Charles, a giant planned community south of nearby Waldorf, began to take away Indian Head’s shopping dollars and spelled the demise of local businesses. Rich in history, the town lacks many basic retail and service businesses, but revitalization efforts like the “black box” stage theater, the Indian Head Center for the Arts, a 13-mile paved hiking/biking trail converted from an old railroad track, a year-round swimming pool at Henry E. Lackey High School, and the “Velocity Center” completed in 2020 are in full swing.
Hearing loss restricts what you are able to enjoy, shutting down avenues of communication that connect you to family, friends, and community. With better hearing, you can revitalize your relationships, enjoy the richness nature has to offer in area parks, and live a more rewarding and independent lifestyle.
After helping over 10,000 people near Indian Head achieve better hearing over the past 25 years, we’ve learned that the most important deciding factor between those who achieve better hearing and those who don’t isn’t the hearing technology but who they partner with. If you partner with Jacobs Audiology at our Waldorf hearing center, you’ll have access to our expertise in combining today’s technology with caring and compassionate audiological care that lasts a lifetime.

How We Can Help
When Was Your Last Hearing Test?
Most of us are pretty good about getting our teeth and eyes checked regularly, testing our cholesterol and blood pressure, and even scheduling our annual physical, but when was your last hearing test?
In spite of the fact that close to 30 million Americans over the age of 12 experience some form of hearing loss in both ears and hearing loss is the third most common health condition in the US, hearing tests continue to take a low position on most people’s list of preventive healthcare priorities.
Because hearing loss develops at such a slow rate, it usually goes unnoticed until the damage is extensive. Regular hearing tests at Jacobs Audiology’s Bowie or Lexington Park location are easy, non-invasive, and provide accurate and reliable information regarding the true status of your hearing before it becomes a significant problem.
How Hearing Technology Has Progressed
If someone mentions hearing aids, the image that pops into your head is probably those bulky, frustrating gadgets your parents or grandparents struggled with. In reality, micro-digital technology has transformed hearing aids in much the same way it has impacted cell phones.
Smaller, lighter, more discrete, and more powerful, today’s advanced technology hearing aids have advanced well beyond what they were just a decade ago. Features like rechargeable batteries, background noise-canceling technology, and the capacity to connect your hearing aids to other digital devices like your smartphone, tablet, stereo, or television significantly enhance your hearing experience.
However, technology alone, without the ongoing caring and compassionate hearing care support provided by the audiology experts at Jacobs Audiology, cannot produce the highly satisfying, life-changing better hearing we deliver to our patients.
Remote Audiological Support
Meeting for a face-to-face consultation about your hearing care needs is the situation we strive for at Jacobs Audiology, but there are times when health concerns, travel, and scheduling make an in-office appointment at our Bowie or Lexington Park clinic inconvenient.
Remote audiological support is our solution to overcoming the challenges of our rapidly changing world. Using your smartphone, laptop, or PC and teleconferencing technology, patients and newcomers alike are offered the opportunity to meet with one of our professional audiologists for a remote face-to-face audiological consultation.
Whether you’re out of town on business, taking a vacation, sheltering in place, or struggling to make an appointment fit your schedule, remote audiological support is our way of giving you access to the same top-level caring and compassionate hearing care you expect to receive during an in-office visit.
