Everything we do at Vineyard Audiology is with our patients' best interest in mind. That's why we offer hearing aids from a number of different manufacturers. We want to be able to offer the best hearing aids for a wide range of hearing needs. We're proud to be a multi-line practice. By not representing any one brand, we have access to a huge selection of hearing aids for every hearing need.
All the hearing aid manufacturers we work with have powerful, advanced technology. We're also picky about working with brands that provide good customer service, which lets us give our patients the best experience because we know we can get any problems easily resolved.
Selecting hearing aids is a complex process. It's not just a matter of picking the smallest or the most expensive. There are so many factors that go into why certain hearing aids would be better for you than others. Our recommendations come from what we learn about you and hearing loss as well as what you tell us about your preferences and your expectations.
Our goal is always to work as a team with you. We're going to treat your hearing loss together. We'll never tell you what to do, and we'll never pressure you into making a purchase. Instead, we'll facilitate the process for you and help you navigate your options until you've decided for yourself how you want to proceed.
Dr. Segal is a member of Our Island Club, and through the club, we offer discounts on premium hearing aid products.
Depending on your preferences and your hearing loss, you may choose a style of hearing aid that goes inside your ear or around the back. We'll show you demo units so you can see for yourself just how invisible most of them can be. We offer completely-in-canal (CIC), invisible-in-canal (IIC), in-the-canal (ITC), in-the-ear (ITE), behind-the-ear (BTE), and receiver-in-canal (RIC).
Of these, we fit a significant number of our patients with RIC hearing aids, which are incredibly versatile and effective. We also often fit patients with a particularly comfortable CIC hearing aid with a soft, rubbery tip. There are definitely options, and we'll go over the strengths of each kind of hearing aid that we think might be good for you.
