Check out some of the frequently asked questions our patients ask us.
No, today’s hearing aids are incredibly small in size and are designed to be discreet. Hearing aids come in a variety of colors that can match your hair color and skin tone, so no one will even notice you’re wearing one. We also carry hearing aids that rest inside your ear canal and are nearly invisible.
Your first appointment will take between 45 minutes to an hour. We give ourselves plenty of time to discuss with you your health history and to understand what your hearing needs are. We also perform a hearing test and look inside your ears with a video otoscope during the appointment.
Yes, you should wear your hearing aids as much as possible. Wearing your hearing aids all day will allow you to adjust quicker. If your hearing loss has gone untreated for awhile then your brain will need to adjust to hearing sounds again. We recommend our patients wear their hearing aids during all waking hours so they can get used to hearing everyday sounds around them.
With Bluetooth hearing aids you can listen to music directly in your hearing aids! Bluetooth connectivity allows you to stream music directly to your ears without the need of an intermediary device. You can also stream phone calls and movie/TV audio as well. Bluetooth hearing aids are a great option for those who like to have control over their hearing aids and to feel connected.
Unfortunately no. Sensorineural hearing loss, the most common type of hearing loss, cannot be corrected surgically. There is no one treatment for hearing loss. But it can be successfully managed with hearing aids. Hearing aids will allow you to hear sounds and tones you haven’t heard in years. Hearing aids will also allow you to recognize speech in a conversation and will provide your brain with the proper stimulation it needs to remain healthy.
