What to Expect at a Hearing Aid Fitting
Once you’ve selected a hearing aid style that you like, our hearing professionals will check that your hearing aids feel comfortable. Then we’ll program them and check your hearing with the hearing aids in place. We’ll show you the advanced features of your new hearing aids and how to care for them. If your hearing aids fail to meet your expectations, return them to us immediately. We’re happy to adjust them for you.

Real Ear Measurement
We also use Real Ear Measurement, a hearing aid fitting process that uses probe microphones and live real-time speech. It allows you and your family members to immediately see the benefits of hearing aids and understand the fitting process.
Hearing Aids and Follow-up Care
Today’s hearing instruments are highly programmable, and small readjustments may make a big difference. Your hearing aids should be comfortable with respect to the physical fit and the sound loudness. If you’re not satisfied, come see us immediately for alterations to provide a comfortable fit.

Try to be patient with yourself as you get used to the new sounds, and return to our office for adjustments or consultation if needed. We’re here to help you through this process!
