When choosing a hearing aid, it’s vital to follow three important rules for a successful outcome.
- Find an independent doctor of audiology who works with multiple hearing aid manufacturers. An independent audiologist works with all the top brands and will give you an unbiased hearing aid recommendation. It’s important to be aware that many hearing aid retail chains are affiliates or subsidiaries of a hearing aid manufacturer. For example, retail outlets HearingLife and Connect Hearing are affiliates of a hearing aid manufacturer. Each hearing aid brand and model has its own unique features and benefits. As an independent doctor of audiology practice owned by audiologists, San Francisco Hearing Center fits hearing aids from several quality hearing aid manufacturers. We can match your hearing loss issues to the products we know will work the best for you.
- Get Tested First. Get a diagnostic hearing test. An audiologist performs a full audiologic battery of tests to precisely diagnose the source of your hearing difficulty. The results of this diagnostic panel may alert the audiologist to other underlying conditions.
- Seek help from a licensed audiologist who follows best practices to personalize your hearing aids. Your hearing loss, ears and listening preferences are unique. Customization using best practices is essential to provide the best outcomes. The audiologists at San Francisco Hearing use real ear measurements to measure the sound at the level of the eardrum. Using these measures, the audiologist can adjust the hearing aid so that it delivers the precise amount of sound required for maximum hearing ability. The customization of your device is one of the largest factors in ensuring your success.
