Local Hearing Aid Specialists In Wichita, KS
Irma Cohens | BC-HIS
Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist
Let me tell you a little about myself and my passion for hearing health. My name is Irma Cohens, and I have been in the hearing aid industry since July 2002, actively practicing out of Wichita, KS. During this time, I continued to pursue the National Competency Exam and received my Board Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences (BC-HIS).
BC-HIS is a distinguishing symbol shared by some of the most highly experienced hearing health professionals globally. This achievement represents another initiative to excel beyond the standard requirements for hearing instrument specialists.
I am a qualified member of the International Hearing Society as well as the Kansas Hearing Society. I regularly attend seminars throughout Kansas and the surrounding areas to sharpen my skills, which allow me to keep up with advancements in technology.
I have a passion for helping improve people’s lives, and my “Patients First” philosophy set the foundation for my success.

The Importance of a Hearing Test
Have you ever asked yourself, “Do I need a hearing test?” You go to the dentist regularly and get annual checkups at the doctor’s office — hearing tests shouldn’t be any different! Unfortunately, hearing loss does worsen over time, and it can change from year to year. Other factors that can worsen your hearing loss are frequent exposure to loud noises, illness, injury, or medications. That’s why it’s so important to get an annual hearing test.
If you already wear hearing aids, it’s especially important to regularly see us in our comfortable and wheelchair-accessible office. Your hearing may have changed since we last tested it. It’s also possible that your hearing aids might not be working as well for you as they were. Just like you would get a new prescription for your glasses every year, we need to program any new hearing loss into your hearing aids every year.
When you come into our office, we do a comprehensive hearing test, which includes: air conduction, bone conduction, speech reception thresholds, word recognition, MCL, UCL, and speech-in-noise testing. Before all of that, we’ll look in your ears with our video otoscope to check for wax and any visible abnormalities.
All of these terms may be unfamiliar to you right now, but when you come in to have your hearing tested at Hearing Group, we will thoroughly explain the testing process, test results and give you our recommendation based on those results.

Hearing Aid Advice
Everyone’s hearing loss is different, and that’s why we offer a variety of solutions tailored to each individual. Some people might only need one aid, while others need two. Some people may need to be set up with a BiCROS or CROS configuration to hear their best.
The best solution for one person isn’t the same as the best solution for the next person. That can be because of budget differences, more or less hearing loss, different kinds of hearing loss, style preferences, or many other things. Whatever your hearing needs, Irma at Hearing Group in Wichita, KS, is well-equipped to find the best hearing aid solution for you.
