La Plata, MD’s Caring And Compassionate Audiological Care
La Plata, MD, is among the most unique communities in Southern Maryland due to its Spanishname. The name comes from the Río de la Plata, which flows through Argentina and Uruguay, where a community founder, Colonel Samuel Chapman, traveled in search of a cure for his son’s tuberculosis.
Very near Port Tobacco on the Tobacco Port River branch of the Potomac, early plantations in the area focused primarily on the production of tobacco, enhanced by the arrival of a section of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Since our founding, La Plata has remained an integral part of connecting Southern Maryland to Northern Maryland, DC, and beyond, just like better hearing keeps you connected to family, friends, and neighbors in our community.
Your hearing is an integral part of your overall health, providing communication with those around you, helping to stabilize your mental and physical health, and keeping you steady on your feet. Consequently, it is important to have your hearing checked regularly and get the help you need for hearing loss.
Over the past 25 years, more than 10,000 people in and around La Plata, MD, have been able to achieve better hearing, not because of hearing technology but because they chose the right team of experts to partner with. Partnering with Jacobs Audiology provides you access to our expertise in knowing how to use today’s technology along with caring, compassionate audiological care and ongoing support to improve your quality of life.

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.
