“Life sounds great!” —Founder Dr. Jane Kukula

COVID-19 is changing many things about how we interact and of course that means we have to do things a bit differently in the office. When you come in, you’ll see changes to the office and to our routines. We’ve updated our infection control procedures to reflect the new CDC guidelines for disinfecting and social distancing. Plus we’ve been limiting who comes into the office to keep it is a safe environment.

Please come alone to your appointment unless you need a caregiver. We are happy to have your spouse, adult children or friend be a part of your office visit via speaker phone. Also, please wear a face mask and sanitize your hands when you enter.

The day of your appointment, if you are not feeling well, have had a fever or cold like symptoms with two week prior to your appointment or if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within two weeks prior to your appointment, please call and we can reschedule you.

Also, to continue to limit the number of people who come into the office, we are providing curbside service for repairs and cleanings. If you have a problem with one of your aids, or would like them cleaned and checked, please call to schedule a time for curbside service. When you pull into the parking lot, call and let us know you are here. Someone will come to your car and pick up your hearing aids. We’ll take of the problem and when we’re done we’ll bring them out to you in your car. Curbside service is by appointment.

Thank you again for your patience. We are here to support you with your hearing needs. We are looking forward to hearing from and seeing you again.

Life Sounds Great! ~Dr. Jane

The Hearing Center at Advanced Audiology Concepts provides the latest-tech hearing care—from basic to premium hearing aids, such as those with wireless Bluetooth hearing aids technology—in the personal and friendly atmosphere of a family hearing center promising prompt and courteous service.

Founded by Audiologist Dr. Jane Kukula in 2000, the practice educates patients about hearing loss causes and through hearing tests and diagnostics, fits them with the best hearing solutions for their needs.

Dr. Jane Kukula

The practice is founded on the desire to help others enjoy their lives fully. When Dr. Jane was a child, she experienced her grandmother’s significant hearing loss, and the impact it had on her being present at family functions yet missing out on everything. Just as she wished she could have reconnected her grandmother to the conversation, so too does she make it her mission to connect others back to the world around them and enjoy every moment!

Services include:
• Ear wax removal
• Audiologic Assessment
• Hearing counseling
• Hearing instrument assessment and fitting services
• Telehealth services

Advanced Tele-medicine Technology
The technology of hearing care has advanced rapidly, and since Dr. Jane sits on panels for manufacturers of hearing aids, she’s privy to the development of the latest products, and has even taken a leadership role and offered products not yet on the market to her patients as a test group to provide feedback.

Dr. Jane works only with top manufacturers, such as Phonak, Oticon, Unitron, Lyric, Widex and Resound. Devices today are more discreet than ever before and are better at discerning noises, as well as being able to adjust them via any Bluetooth device.

As a doctor of audiology and a board-certified audiologist, Dr. Jane is also qualified to treat tinnitus, a common condition that triggers perceived ringing in the ears. The staff utilizes a Progressive Tinnitus Management Program that includes assessment and sound therapy.

Unlike more institutional hearing centers, they also work with each individual patient to create a unique pricing structure to bring down the cost of aids and hearing care.

Meet the new Audiologist and Staff
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Rachael Olinger to our staff,” says Dr. Kukula. “Despite Covid, as soon as we reopened in July, we’ve been extremely busy and are grateful she joined us. With her undergrad degree from The Ohio State University and doctorate from the Northeast Ohio AuD Consortium, she is whip smart and the staff and patients love her positive energy.”

Dr. Olinger’s areas of interest include adult diagnostics, tinnitus management and the fitting and management of hearing aids.
