Hearing Aid Fitting
All of the information given during the hearing aid fitting is vital for day to day operation. Warranty, maintenance, features, apps and even future appointments will be discussed during the fitting. Patients can use this session to ask essential questions about their hearing health.
During the hearing aid fitting, real ear measures are used to verify the fitting of hearing aids. A tiny probe tube is placed in the ear canal near the eardrum to take measurements of what the ear is actually hearing. This customizes the fitting parameters to the individual.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Warranties will be discussed before and after the hearing aid evaluation and fitting. Simple repairs can be handled on site by our audiologist while extensive damage may be sent to the manufacturer. When hearing aids are sent off to the manufacturer, additional options and estimated waiting times will be discussed with the patient.
