How to Obtain a Hearing Aid
In order to obtain a hearing aid, a hearing aid evaluation must be performed. Evaluations are only scheduled after a complete diagnostic hearing test has been performed and amplification is recommended. The hearing evaluation must be current (in the last 6 months) before a hearing aid will be dispensed.

The Center provides a comprehensive recommendation and consultation process, in which audiologists discuss the technology available and recommend the hearing aid most appropriate for the individual’s hearing loss, needs, and lifestyle. After receiving the hearing aid, the Center’s audiologists make sure patients are confident and comfortable using them.

Hearing Aid Manufacturers
The Center employs salaried audiologists who are not compensated with commissions based on hearing aid sales.

The Center offers a wide range of technologically advanced hearing aids and works with several manufacturers. Center audiologists help patients decide which hearing aid works best for them. The following is a list of some of the manufacturers most frequently recommended.
