    What is Live Speech Mapping?

    Live speech mapping is a precise hearing aid verification method designed to ensure that your hearing aids are customized to your unique needs. During your appointment, small microphones are inserted into your ear canal, capturing the response of the hearing aids in real-time. This process takes into account the individual characteristics of your ear and hearing loss. To make the experience even more engaging, we encourage you to bring a family member or close friend who will act as the "gauge" for your ability to hear live voices.

    At Treasure Coast Audiology, we employ state-of-the-art equipment that enables you to "see" what you're hearing through your hearing aids on a screen, providing real-time feedback. The results can also be displayed on a wall-mounted screen, allowing both you and your family to witness the adjustments and actively participate in the process. This visual aspect helps you comprehend the transformative impact of hearing aids on your ability to hear.

    I have rather serious hearing loss, which presents a challenge to any audiologist trying to fit me with hearing aids. I’ve been going to Dr. Hackney now for many years and simply cannot speak highly enough of her tireless efforts, and success, in helping me achieve the best hearing possible. I have, and continue to, highly recommend Dr. Hackney and her staff.

    Dr. Hackney and her assistant Heather have worked with my family members, my husband and many friends and we have all found them warm, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. We have always been able to get help when we call whether it be a quick reset or a factory return. We cannot say enough about the quality of service we all have received from Dr. Hackney at Treasure Coast Audiology. We highly recommend them for all your hearing needs!

    I lost hearing early in life and have seen plenty of audiologists over the past 25 years. Dr. Hackney has been great - I've been very pleased with the hearing aids and service she's provided. In addition, Dr. Hackney's staff are truly a pleasure. They're remarkably warm, engaging, professional, and efficient. It's over an hour drive for me to get to Treasure Coast Audiology, but it's worth it!

    Dr. Hackney has given me my hearing back! Her caring and patient disposition is amazing. Not only was the initial visit fabulous, whenever I have an issue, whether it be batteries or a quick adjustment, her office responds quickly and in a timely fashion. They usually are able to see me that day. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Hackney to anyone in need of hearing devices. Dr. Hackney and her staff are wonderful and meet my every need as a hearing impaired client. THANK YOU.

    Absolutely the best!!! Dr. Hackney;s experience and insight led to diagnosis of a benign tumor on the acoustic nerve in my right ear. I will be forever indebted to her for her help. In addition to this, I received outstanding professional and courteous service in the fitting for state of the art hearing aids. It doesn't stop there, the follow up service by Dr. Hackney and Heather Snell was beyond my greatest expectations. Highly recommended, wonderful service by wonderful people.

    Unbelievable caring and service!! The two operators (both named "Heather"!) at Treasure Coast Audiology have been like sisters to me. when I needed a new hearing solution they were the ONLY Audiology group on the Treasure Coast to consider my situation and work with me to find a true solution. The other NINE calls I made simply wanted to sell me their most outrageously priced hearing aids and did not care what lie they had to tell me in order to get me through their door to close me. This includes Doctors, Franchise locations etc. I unconditionally recommend Heather Hackney, her expertise, caring and generosity.
