Once your hearing loss is determined and you are ready to pursue amplification options, you and your audiologist will discuss the best hearing aids for your listening needs.
We offer a dedicated Hearing Aid Dispensary that provides evaluation and dispensing of sophisticated hearing aids and assistive listening devices such as digital hearing aids and FM listening systems. We also provide information about personal amplifiers, telephone amplifiers, and alarm or warning devices.
Digital hearing aids are the latest advanced technology in hearing aids. Your audiologist will program your hearing aids using the most up-to-date software and computer technology.
Hearing aid technology includes multiple memories, noise reduction, directional microphones, feedback management systems, speech enhancement, and wireless or Bluetooth capabilities to allow you to link your hearing aids to your cellular phone, television, or MP3 player.

At your consultation, the style and technology of hearing aids which are most appropriate for your lifestyle and hearing loss will be determined. You may need to have impressions of your ears taken at this time. It takes about two weeks from this point to receive your hearing aids.

This includes inserting and removing the hearing aids, changing the batteries, and cleaning and maintaining your hearing aids. Your audiologist will also discuss realistic expectations and communication strategies during this appointment.
