4 Questions Audiologists are Eager for You to Ask
Hearing healthcare professionals are always eager to educate the public about exactly who they are, what they do, and why hearing health is so important. Here are four questions our network of audiologists are eager to answer for you.
- What do you do and what are your qualifications?
If you ask any of our audiologists, the first thing will tell you is that they are the doctors of hearing. Their degree qualifies them to properly asses and diagnose any hearing loss or disorders. Hearing related conditions including balance disorders are also in their wide range of comprehensive care for all ages.
- Can’t I just buy a hearing aid online?
There are always alternative options for hearing loss treatment and audiologists are very aware of them. Discussing these differences before buying one online can potentially save you money. With the help of our hearing healthcare professionals, not only will you find the most affordable option, but they will also have your hearing aids custom fitted, so that it is just right for you.
- What benefits will I receive from getting my hearing aid fitted by an audiologist?
After a custom fitting, one of our qualified audiologists will provide training on usage and care for your hearing aid, as well as troubleshooting tips and techniques to help make the adjustment to living with hearing aids easier. You will also be scheduled for a follow-up a few weeks after your initial appointment to make sure you are satisfied, and the hearing aids are doing their job.
- What if I have a hearing aid emergency, can you help?
With a wide array of clinics all over the country, our audiologists are more than happy to provide contact information, office hours of operation, and after-hour emergency procedures to their patients. You will never be left without support in the event of an emergency. With their credentials and wide array of knowledge in the field, audiologists are the best resource for any hearing and hearing aid related issue you may be experiencing.
