What do we provide?
At Professional Hearing Solutions, we strive to provide our patients with the best hearing care available. What does this mean? Your hearing evaluation will be performed by an Audiologist who will take the time to explain it to you fully in terms you understand. If you require further treatment such as hearing aids or other assistive devices, your Audiologist will gather information on your lifestyle, challenges you face and any other concerns you have. Based on that information and the test results, we will make recommendations of a treatment plan as well as which technology is right for you. We will follow up with you to make sure we have met your needs. If hearing aids are part of your treatment plan, we perform adjustments and maintenance at no additional charge. Our goal is to have you hearing better!
Hearing Aid Fittings
Once you have made the decision to pursue treatment for your hearing loss, the process begins. We will prepare and program your hearing aids based on your most current hearing test. When you arrive, we put the hearing aids on you and begin customizing the sound for YOUR comfort. We educate you on the care and use of your new hearing aids. We schedule you to return in 1-2 weeks. At that time we gather feedback from you on how well the hearing aids are working for you. What do you like? What situation improved? What would you like changed? Remember, the more information you give to us, the better we can customize the hearing aids to your needs and preferences. Keep in mind that this is a process as your brain gets used to the hearing aids. Be patient and give us as much information as you can. The end result…YOU hearing better and enjoying life!
