Fitting and follow-up care

 

While it may seem like a simple process, obtaining a proper hearing aid fitting is critical to a successful adjustment period. Adapting to wearing hearing devices can be challenging, but professional counseling and accurate programming can make it much less so.   Correctly fitting a patient’s hearing aid is both an art and a science.

Technological advances in hearing devices help us program and fine-tune the device, while listening to and understanding the patient helps us ensure the technology is doing what it is intended to do. We use the most up to date computer software and technology, combined with exceptional patient interaction skills to provide optimal outcomes.

The hearing aid fitting occurs one to two weeks following your initial consultation.  At that time, you will be fit with your hearing instruments using computerized speech mapping. This technique ensures you receive the most accurate fitting and prescription for your listening needs. You will also be instructed on the proper use and care of your hearing aids. We will schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure that all your questions have been answered and your hearing aids are correctly adjusted for your needs.

Additional complimentary follow-up appointments will be encouraged and scheduled with you as needed to make sure that your hearing health and comfort is maintained at the highest level.
