In addition to the hearing aids, we also offer a comprehensive selection of assistive devices and blue tooth connectivity options. After the hearing evaluation is completed, it is determined if the client is a candidate for amplification. If they are, a hearing aid consultation is scheduled. This is a one and a half hour appointment during which the client is educated about hearing aids. All options are discussed and questions are answered. There is no obligation to purchase an aid.
