A comprehensive tinnitus evaluation is your first step. During this appointment your hearing will be examined, in addition to specific tinnitus measures. The testing is very much dictated by the patient, their history, and overall tinnitus impact. Information and education on tinnitus will be provided, helping patients to better understand their sound, and the reasons it may be present.
Treatment in the formal sense is not always warranted for tinnitus. Some patients will benefit greatly from the evaluation appointment and the education provided alone. However, formal treatment is recommended for those who have a significant tinnitus impact and need a more structured approach. There are some patients who fall in the middle of the spectrum and will benefit from tinnitus management tools and strategies. Our goal is to match patients up with their best path to success.
Sound therapy has been found to be the most successful form of treatment for tinnitus patients. There are a number of different tools, approaches, and technology that can be applied for sound therapy. Recommendations are structured according to specific tinnitus attributes, patient lifestyle, and overall goals of therapy.

Dr. Casie Keaton of Thrive Hearing has made such a tremendous impact on my life. Dr. Keaton fitted me with Oticon Hearing Aids and the results have changed my life forever. I am able to hear sounds that I have not heard in years. Being able to hear better has made such a positive change in my social and business interaction with other people. I am "thriving" and so thankful for Dr. Keaton's help. The least that I can say about Thrive Hearing and Tinnitus is "excellent"! Thank you!
I like the ability to HEAR sounds I've not heard for years. Comparing my "aids" with friends' "aids", your product is far superior. Would and have recommended Dr. Keaton and your product to others! Dr. Keaton is very professional yet cordial and "warm" - informational and accessible with advice and suggestions.
Deciding to have my hearing evaluated by Dr. Casie Keaton at THRIVE changed my life! At 57 years old, I knew I had some hearing loss. Dr. Keaton's evaluation was thorough, and her "bedside manner" is awesome. She took the time to get to know me and to learn about my lifestyle so she could make the best recommendation for ME. She discussed my options without any pressure whatsoever, and explained everything completely. And the 30-day trial she offered made my decision to try a hearing aid a "can't lose" proposition. I LOVE my new hearing aid, and wear it all the time. I brag about Dr. Keaton and how THRIVE has changed my life to all my friends and family. If you think you have hearing loss, go see Dr. Keaton. And don't wait...do it now!!!
