To guide you through the process of diagnosing your hearing loss and finding the best solution, you’ll need a qualified and caring hearing aid provider. The professionals that you turn to for hearing aid help must be good communicators with up-to-date technical information about the latest hearing devices.
Ultimately you should choose hearing aid specialist and provider with whom you feel comfortable and trust. Your hearing specialist will measure and categorize your hearing loss and its severity. S/he will suggest treatments including hearing aids or hearing aid accessories. The hearing aid provider will then work with you to find the best specific solution to improve your unique hearing loss and fit in with your lifestyle.
When choosing your hearing health provider, find one who:
-Takes time to ask you about your general health and lifestyle
-Doesn’t rush you through a quick hearing test
-Treats you with respect
-Clearly explains your hearing loss and potential treatments.
-Informs you of the benefits of hearing improvement in both ears
-Provides 2 or more options of recommended hearing aid technology that fit your type and degree of hearing loss, your budget and your lifestyle
-Does not make claims that appear “too good to be true” or use a hard sales pitch
-Gives you a practical idea about how your aid should fit and feel
-Informs you about California’s 30-day return option
-Stresses the need for follow-up visits, for at least 1 month to 6 weeks to make sure your aid performs and fits properly
-Partners with you to help you with decisions about your hearing care
-Makes you feel comfortable
