Caring, Compassionate, And Local Audiological Care For Lexington Park, MD
Beginning with the Yaocomico branch of the Piscataway Indian Nation,people have called Lexington Park, MD home for more than 10,000 years. Tobacco plantations, as well as crabbing, fishing, and oyster harvesting along the waterfront of the Patuxent River, have been common activities of European and other foreign-born residents in our community for nearly 400 years.
In a twist of irony, the primary feature of Lexington Park in the 21st century is the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, with its high-tech aircraft, aerospace, and instrumentation overwhelming what was once a quiet, rural setting. Among the most prominent health conditions of those who work around modern aircraft is noise-induced hearing loss, which requires the attention of a hearing care professional for prevention and/or treatment.
Similar to the transformation of Lexington Park, seeking treatment for your hearing challenges can transform that which keeps you trapped in your home, isolated from friends and loved ones, and struggling with a variety of negative mental and physical health conditions into a revitalized, rich, and independent lifestyle.
Over 10,000 people in and around Lexington Park, MD, have been able to achieve better hearing over the past 25 years because they have teamed up with the right hearing care partners rather than encountered the best hearing technology. Ongoing, caring, and compassionate audiological care coupled with today’s technology is the expertise of Jacobs Audiology and the reason we’re able to help you restore your active, independent lifestyle.

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.
