New Leaf Hearing Clinic’s primary hearing care provider, Julie L. Raney, is an experienced audiologist who specializes in compassionate and personalized patient care. At New Leaf we focus on each patient as a unique individual with unique hearing needs. The hearing aid industry is filled with practitioners whose primary goal is to sell hearing aids; they have no regard for the patient’s overall hearing needs and the social, emotional, and financial implications of hearing loss. We pride ourselves on involving the patient in the hearing aid selection process. Acting as a guide, we help our patients determine the right hearing aid for their hearing loss, lifestyle, and budget. Our goal is not a one-time purchase, but a lifelong relationship.
Julie Raney is a certified and licensed audiologist. She has a B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders and a Master’s Degree in Audiology from Idaho State University. She has worked as a clinical audiologist in Colorado since 2005. She specializes in hearing amplification for adults and delivers her services in both English and Sign Language.

Hearing is tested using pure tones and speech to determine your hearing acuity. (Don’t worry, it’s easy, and it’s better than the dentist any day of the week!)
Subjective measurement and discussion of any bothersome ringing or buzzing sounds you may hear inside your ears or head. We’ll also discuss treatment options such as sound therapy and amplification if needed. To learn more about tinnitus, the American Tinnitus Association has many great resources available.
Hearing Aid Evaluation
Assessment of need for amplification based on hearing loss and communication difficulties. We can discuss new amplification options, and/or assess the appropriateness of your current amplification. We’ll also discuss assistive listening devices that can be used with or without a hearing aid, including Bluetooth options. Please see our Hearing Improvement section for more information.
We use an instrument called a tympanometer to make sure that your eardrum and the three tiny ear bones are functioning properly. It is also used to make sure that there is no fluid behind your eardrum.
Hearing Aid Repairs and Service
We service most manufacturers’ hearing aids and almost any hearing aid is repairable no matter how old it is (unless it is smashed to smithereens). Repair costs vary by manufacturer and the age of the device.
If any of our diagnostic tests indicate there could be a medical problem contributing to your hearing loss, we will immediately refer you to your primary care physician or an ear-nose-and-throat specialist.
Hearing Rehabilitation Counseling
We provide counseling on a variety of topics including: hearing loss in general, appropriate expectations for amplification, tips for hearing aid success, and use and care of hearing aids. Counseling services are offered in English and Sign Language.
Hearing Protection Evaluation
Assessment of need for hearing protection from occupational noise, recreational noise, music, and even snoring! We’ll discuss options such as universal vs. custom protection and available options for both. Please see our Hearing Protection section for more information.
Removal of obstructing earwax using curettes and irrigation procedures. We also provide patient education on recommended at-home wax management techniques.
We carry hearing aid batteries in stock in our office for a very reasonable price. We can also mail them to you, but there is a small additional charge to cover postage.
What Separates Us From The Herd
At New Leaf Hearing Clinic we are committed to providing our patients with excellent service and warranties because we understand that hearing aids are an important investment that need protecting. EVERY Hearing aid we sell comes with the following:
65 Day Trial Period With a FULL No-Hassle Refund
We’ll work hard to make sure you’re happy, but if you’re not, we’ll give you a 100% refund.
Minimum 3 Manufacturer’s Warranty for Repair at No Charge*
If your hearing aid breaks down, the manufacturer will fix it for free, as often as needed, for a minimum of three years—this does NOT include if the hearing aid is accidentally crushed. That would fall under “damage beyond repair.”
Minimum 3 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty for Loss & Damage Beyond Repair*
The manufacturer will replace each hearing aid with a new instrument one time during the warranty if the aid is lost or crushed. The deductible per hearing aid for replacement is $250.00
Minimum 3 Year Service Package*
All office services including hearing tests, hearing aid adjustments/maintenance, and wax removal are done at no charge for the minimum three year warranty period.
*Limited exclusions may apply.
