NOW HEAR THIS: Navigating the Waters of Hearing Aid Purchasing
Once you have been diagnosed with hearing loss, it’s important to know we are here to help you make a purchase that meets the level of hearing loss you are experiencing. We have plenty of choices to choose from at The Hearing Center at Jacksonville Hearing & Balance Institute. Conveniently located at CenterOne just off JTB and by Town Center, our professionals are dedicated to ensuring you a good fit and an appropriate purchase for your aid or hearing device.
Our board-certified Audiologists are here to serve you. Also, you might want to visit “Hearing Aids Can Help” at www.BetterHearing.org. It’s easy – and you don’t have to leave home if you want to check out online what is in the marketplace on that site. The most important thing to remember is that our professionals are here to make sure you buy one that makes sense for your level of hearing. The cheapest may save you dollars, but may not result in meeting your expectations to hear better. Be up-front with our professionals, if you are shopping elsewhere besides at our Hearing Center. Please take into consideration the education background and board certification, such as the level of professionalism our Audiologists offer, as part of the consideration. Also, if you purchase a hearing aid from us, we offer a free clinic to help you get used to it or need it recalibrated for any reason. Let our Audiologists know you are “ready” to learn about the best hearing aid technologies available for you and ask what they recommend. Also, our Audiologists will be happy to give you a demonstration on how they work. Remember, only purchase a hearing aid by a licensed hearing care professional.
True hearing aids are designed to treat hearing loss and are cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Once purchased, the hearing aid will need to be fitted, adjusted and tuned to your ears and specific needs, in addition to appropriate follow-up.
The professional Audiologists at The Hearing Center are here to help and show you how leading-edge hearing aids can be beneficial and add to your quality of life. Be sure when you are seeking information on hearing aids that you check out the credentials – a board -certified Audiologist, such as those professionals at The Hearing Center, are here to help you hear better – the first time!
