Marincovich - The MA5P METHOD

Marincovich

Dr. Marincovich, the creator of THE MA5P METHODTM, works with patients of all ages and levels of hearing loss.

“I have always felt that in order to be great diagnosticians we need to understand how hearing loss impacts the patient and being empathetic in order to understand how to best help someone communicate more effectively. We have to understand all aspects of we each, as individuals, hear and process sound.”

– Peter J. Marincovich, Ph.D., CCC-A, Clinical Audiologist

Assessment - The MA5P METHOD

Assessment

Not only do we provide standardized hearing testing for diagnostic purposes but also assess how you “perceive” soft, comfortable, quiet, and loud sounds in different environments. Interventional audiology, consistent with person-centered care, assesses cognitive aspects of how we tolerate loud sounds, how we process speech, noise, and listening effort for soft sounds.

Optimal hearing testing for patients is closely related to appropriate functional communication and engagement.  We test hearing sensitivity alone (i.e. traditional audiogram) and assess cognitive processes that are key to understanding speech.  This provides us with a comprehensive management strategy for general and age-related hearing loss.

The correct prescription of soft, comfortable amplified sound is the second step after correctly assessing a patients hearing loss.

ALDs - The MA5P METHOD

ALDS

Assistive Listening Devices are meant to be used, either with or without hearing aids, to help patients hear better in multiple lifestyle situations. They help in a variety of functions such as watching tv, talking on the phone, listening in large areas, etc.

Active Listening - The MA5P METHOD

Active Listening

Communication is a two-way street. The hearing impaired individual needs to take an active role in communicating more effectively and the talker also needs to learn how to become more intentional in applying communication strategies to maximize the communication cycle, and etiquette is a very important part of this strategy.

After Care - The MA5P METHOD

After Care

We don’t expect our patients to succeed without proper aftercare. That’s why we’ve developed specific processes for following up with your progress. The key to helping a patient communicate more effectively has to do with adapting the appropriate technology to the patient as the patient adapts to the technology.

To my patients,

It is my pleasure to serve you and continue to serve Sonoma Country as I have for over 35 years. Since 1985 when I lost hearing in my left ear, I personally experienced the gaps in treatment options and necessary methodology to keep those affected by hearing loss connected. It has since been my focus to develop systems, processes, and methods, like THE MA5P METHODTM, to address the individual needs of my patients and create a solution that fits their lifestyle. If you are experiencing hearing loss, I invite you to pay us a visit and discuss ways to keep you connected to the things you love.

To health and staying connected,

Peter Marincovich Ph.D.
