Hearing Aid Services:
Hearing Aid Evaluation - The audiologist meets with clients to discuss which type of hearing aid is best suited for their individual needs. Recommendations are based on hearing test results, listening needs, and financial concerns. All hearing aid purchases come with a 45 day trial period.
Hearing Aid Check- If a hearing aid is not working, the audiologist can determine what is causing the problem and the best way to fix it. Sometimes simple repairs can be done in the office; however, more serious problems may require sending the hearing aid to the manufacturer for repair.
