The Right Hearing Aids For You

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.

  • Cost. We understand that budget is one of the biggest concerns people have, and we do our best to find a powerful solution that you can afford. The good news is that a number of manufacturers have lowered their prices for really superior devices. We are excited to be able to offer excellent devices with really good pricing.
  • Hearing loss. Depending on how mild or severe your hearing loss is, some styles may not be as effective for you.
  • Aesthetic preference. All hearing aids today are much smaller and harder to notice than you expect, but sometimes patients do have a preference, and we want to take that into consideration.
  • Dexterity. Some people have a hard time replacing batteries or using small buttons on their devices. In those cases, we may recommend rechargeable hearing aids and/or hearing devices with easy-to-use controls.
  • Technological comfort. Are you someone who wants a simple, user-friendly hearing aid, or are you looking for an advanced device with Bluetooth connectivity? We can fit you with hearing aids that match either end.

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.
