A commitment to improving your hearing health is a big decision, both in time and finances. It is essential to know that your provider will stand behind their treatment recommendations and the devices they provide.

We will always try our best to resolve anything you are not satisfied with. You can contact our office at any time with questions or to schedule a follow-up appointment.
At-Home Follow-Up Appointments
At Capital Hearing Care, we understand that life is busy for everyone and some patients may have difficulty scheduling follow-up appointments for their hearing care.

We also offer remote appointments so you can connect with our experts virtually to discuss your concerns, ask questions, discuss options, or anything else you’d like to know.
At Capital Hearing Care, you can find comfort in knowing that your hearing needs are a priority. You won’t have to wait weeks or months just to find out that your journey to clear hearing can’t start for several weeks. We will always make every effort to see you as soon as possible when you call to make an appointment. You can even get your treatment started during your initial appointment. This is just another way we go above and beyond to support your healthiest hearing.

If you want to be seen for your consultation as soon as possible and get started right away, please give us a call, and we will get you in.

Because we strive to provide an entirely customized experience for your hearing aid treatment, there are times that adjustments become necessary during the early adaptation period. We never want you to experience unnecessary discomfort from your hearing aid. If you are struggling with your new hearing aid in any way despite following our guidelines, we will provide you with an emergency customization appointment.
Repairs & Maintenance for All
Our office will service and repair your hearing instruments. If we find that your hearing device needs to be sent out for repair, we can expedite that service as well. We offer these repairs to both patients and non-patients, as we believe everyone should have access to functional hearing aids.
When you come to Capital Hearing Care, our staff will test your hearing with your hearing aids to ensure that they are working properly and that we are giving you the best hearing we can. Hearing aid adjustments, frequent cleanings, and regular check-ups are essential to your satisfaction.

Whether your concerns are cognitive deficits, hearing loss, tinnitus, or anything else, our state-of-the-art assessment and treatment techniques ensure the best possible outcome.
We offer top-notch care using modern diagnostic techniques and the latest technology, such as Redux drying technology. Redux uses vacuum drying and humidity level measurement for the safe evaporation of moisture in your hearing aids. Although we live in the desert, our hearing aids live in a rainforest-like environment and it’s important to minimize the effects of moisture in your sophisticated instruments. Our expert team will use this innovative tool to extend the lifespan of your hearing devices and protect your healthy hearing.
Hearing Up Certified
The Hearing Up provider certification means that Catherine Worth has been verified to follow evidence-based best practices during hearing evaluations and hearing aid fittings. Best Practices include verification measures like real ear measurement and ensure better outcomes for our patients. Only 20% of audiologists follow best practices.

Treating hearing loss properly is complex and requires a provider who invests the time and resources in your optimal hearing result.
