Our Board Certified ENT specialists and Doctors of Audiology provide outstanding hearing loss evaluation and treatment. A hearing aid consultation with one of our audiologists is a great way for patients who are interested in obtaining more information about whether hearing aids are a good option for helping with their communication needs. During this consultation, the audiologist will recommend which style and technology level of hearing aid is most appropriate based on your hearing loss, as well as answer any questions you may have about hearing aids.
If you make the decision to purchase hearing aids, the next step is a hearing aid fitting appointment. During this appointment, the audiologist will program and fit your hearing aids for your specific hearing loss and go over how to use and take care of your hearing aids.
After your hearing aids are fit, you will be seen periodically for follow-up to make fine-tuning adjustments to your hearing aids. This ensures that your hearing aids are providing the most benefit to you by maximizing your ability to understand speech and providing the clearest, most comfortable sound quality possible.
Why Should I Buy Hearing Aids From an ENT specialist rather than a stand alone hearing aid center?
Your Comprehensive ENT physician can diagnoses and treat all manner of hearing loss disorders and recommend the best treatment options for you. OFTEN WITH A SINGLE VISIT! Your Comprehensive ENT physician is focused on helping you best treat your hearing loss, not just selling hearing aids.
Consumer Reports in 2009 wrote:
“…our suggested choice is a medical office headed by an otolaryngologist (an ear, nose, and throat physician) who employs an audiologist to fit and dispense hearing aids.
About one in five survey respondents got their hearing aids from a doctor's office. They gave those providers higher marks on their thoroughness in evaluating hearing loss than did respondents who went to other types of providers. Another plus: An ear doctor can rule out medical conditions such as a tumor or bacterial infection in the ear that might be affecting your hearing. He can also clear your ears of wax so that you're ready for your hearing test.”
