How we work with you

We're with you every step of the way to getting your custom designed hearing aids, and we will follow up every few weeks to assure your comfort and satisfaction. We even carry lines that let you have custom fitted hearing aids the same day of your visit!

We will provide you a thorough state-of-the-art hearing evaluation. We will identify the nature and extent of your hearing loss and the degree to which it interferes with your ability to understand speech.

If the test results suggest a possible medical problem we will refer you to your physician with copies of your evaluation.

If your hearing loss can be helped with hearing aids, we will discuss the different types available and help you choose the best hearing aids for your specific needs and lifestyle.

We will take custom impressions of your ears. This will form the mold for your custom designed hearing aids, which should be ready in about two weeks.
