Once you have had a hearing aid evaluation where we choose the hearing aids that are right for you, you will be seen for a hearing aid fitting. This is where the audiologist will program them to your specific prescription which is devised from your hearing test. There will be a custom fitting for your unique ear as well.
You will have a follow up appointment in one to two weeks after your initial fitting. During this time, patients generally have a list of question. It is a good idea to bring a close friend or family member to help remember all of the information you will be given at this appointment.
It may take time to adjust to the new hearing environment, but what you are hearing should eventually be clear, comfortable, and pleasant. If it is not so, some minor changes may be made. To help with this process, there may be a short survey or list of questions to answer to better understand your hearing experience.
As with any type of technology and/or device, there is bound to be malfunctions eventually. However, we aim to provide a service that makes the repair of a hearing aid as affordable and hassle-free as possible.
If a repair is out of our scope of ability within our office, we may send your hearing aids back to the manufacturer. In this event, we will strive to make the process a breeze. Per manufacturer warranty and repair processes, we will let you know exactly what to expect.
