Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you accept Visa / MasterCard?
- Yes, as well as Discover and CareCredit.
How do I select a hearing aid?
- A hearing aid is the first and most important thing to help you hear better.
- Millions of Americans with hearing loss could benefit from hearing aids but have not obtained them.
- Consumers are sometimes concerned about the appearance of a hearing aid, but a hearing loss is much more conspicuous than a hearing aid.
- Don’t rush into buying a hearing aid. Spend time researching this major purchase.
- First get a thorough evaluation of you hearing by a qualified hearing health professional. Hearing Specialists can advise you on which hearing aid is best suited for your lifestyle and listening needs.
What if price is an Issue?
- Another consideration will be what you can afford. Most hearing aids are programmed, so the skill of your provider is an essential factor in determining your satisfaction.
- Hearing aids with digital circuitry offer a good choice for your hearing loss in receiver in the canal, open fit and custom made technology.
- Programmable aids can be customized to fit your needs and there are a wide range of features to consider, such as directional microphones, telecoil, direct audio input and remote control.
What about trying It out?
- However, eventually you will want to try out a hearing aid on your own.
- Know your rights about a trial period as you adjust to an aid. There will be provider return policies but there may be state laws to protect you as well.
- Be aware that it may take a while for the brain to adjust to a hearing aid, so you can’t always determine right away if you will like it.
- Bring appropriate expectations: hearing aids may help you cope more effectively in communication, but they will not restore normal hearing.
