Hearing Instrument Fitting

At this visit, you receive the new hearing aids. We make measurements with the instruments in your ears (Real Ear Measurement), to ensure that they provide you with optimal benefit for your hearing. We then review with you how to use and care for the devices. We encourage you to bring a friend or family member with you to this information-filled visit.

Hearing Aid Adjustment and Follow-Up Care

We use a computer to adjust the settings on today’s digital hearing instruments. Current technology allows for a wide range of reprogramming if your hearing changes or if fine-tuning is needed for better clarity of speech.

Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance

Please contact us if your hearing aid is not working properly. Hearing aids occasionally require factory repair due to mechanical problems. If we are unable to resolve the problem in the office, we will send the instrument to the manufacturer. If possible, we will offer you a loaner hearing aid to use while your device is being repaired. Please see our Walk-in Service Policy.

Hearing Aid Cleaning

Hearing aids also require regular cleaning and maintenance, to keep them working properly. We recommend daily cleaning at home and office cleaning every six months (by appointment). If you have questions about how to take care of your hearing aids, please contact us.
