Make informed decisions on the purchase of your next hearing aid device!
Working within the medical community, our clinic provides a variety of hearing healthcare services including hearing assessments, rehabilitation, education, and counseling. Our clinic also fits and dispenses sophisticated hearing aids and related devices to suit all types of hearing losses and life styles. Assessments regarding the level of amplification that would be best suited to our patients are generally completed following a comprehensive hearing evaluation by a qualified hearing health care professional.
We also actively participate in the prevention of hearing loss through the provision and fitting of hearing protective devices, consultation on the effects of noise on hearing, and consumer education.
Wear your hearing aids for a few hours the first day and add an hour a day the following day…and the next…and the next…until you are wearing hearing aids most of the day. Do not try to set an endurance record! I recommend that you interact with people familiar to you during your first days with new hearing aids. Start in a favorable listening environment (such as one-on-one conversations in quiet) and work towards more difficult listening situations. Let your friends and family know you're using your new hearing aids.
