Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
You have many audiology services and hearing aid companies to choose from. At Northwest Hearing and Tinnitus, we believe we are best suited to help with all your needs. We offer the best devices from top-of-the-line manufacturers, which means you’ll have no problem finding the right device for your hearing loss, lifestyle, and budget needs.
Purchasing and using hearing devices is a big step. Many people are anxious about this change, as they are for treatment of any medical need. We want to offer the most comprehensive hearing care in a safe, professional environment. We have found that once people take the first step – getting a hearing test and the results – the rest is easier than anticipated.
Choosing and fitting hearing aids is a process, which is why we work with you to find the best solution for your specific needs. We make sure your devices are the best for your needs then tune and adjust them so they are just right. We explain the cleaning and maintenance procedures, how to replace batteries and how to care for your hearing aids. This is never a one-time process; in a matter of weeks all the adjustments should be in place.
We will also work with you during the adjustment period. Hearing all the sounds around you again can feel overwhelming, which is why we will put together a schedule for you to help you adjust to your new devices. This means you’ll slowly be immersed into all the small sounds again, from the hum of your refrigerator to the birds chirping.
We are always here to answer questions and address problems. Hearing aids are miniature computers with many features. Sometimes questions arise weeks or months down the line.
One more thing: we find that patients who can remain positive about their new devices become comfortable with them more quickly. Having items in your ears can seem daunting before and after the first fitting, but as your ability to hear your loved ones clearly takes shape, we are sure you will be happy with your choice.
