Hearing Aid Fittings
It may seem like a simple and straightforward part of the process; however, obtaining a proper hearing aid fitting is crucial to successful hearing.
After the evaluation process is complete and it is determined that you are an ideal candidate for hearing aids, we will provide a hearing aid style recommendation. This recommendation will be based on your personal lifestyle as well as the technology that you would prefer.
We offer in-office demos so you can see exactly how the hearing aid will feel and sound.
Adapting to hearing devices can be difficult; however, you will have a team of hearing healthcare professionals ready to provide you with accurate programming, counseling and instructions for your new devices.
Also, we will be able to give you education on:
- How to use them
- How to put them in correctly
- How to remove them properly
- How to change batteries
- How to clean them
With a proper fitting, many patients learn to adjust to their new hearing devices quickly. The sounds should be clear, comfortable, and pleasant. If the sounds you are hearing are not so, small changes can be made at your first fitting. To help with this process, there may be a short survey or list of questions to answer to better understand your hearing experience.
Additionally, if you need adjustments later on, we will be happy to do so. Other changes to customize the hearing to your liking may need to take place over a few appointments, as you wear the hearing aids in more situations and adapt to all the new sounds you are hearing.
At Fullerton Hearing Center, we take the hearing aid fitting process seriously because we believe a good fitting is key to patient satisfaction.
