Educating our patients about their hearing health is what enables them to make informed decisions when it comes to their hearing solutions. Our goal at Advanced Audiology Institute is to create an environment where your needs come first, and that includes understanding how our hearing works. Visit the following links to learn more.
YOUR FIRST VISIT
Participating in a hearing evaluation is easier than you might think, and at Advanced Audiology Institute we want your experience to be comfortable and relaxed. Your first visit to an audiologist might bring up a lot of questions, but rest assured that we’re here to guide you through every step of your journey toward better hearing.
AFTER YOUR VISIT
Your initial appointment with us will entail adjusting and fitting your hearing aids to your exact needs, yet much of the work in getting acclimated to your devices takes place once you return to your daily life. There can be a learning curve when it comes to using hearing aids, as your brain must remember how to process the sounds that you’ve been missing. This transition might make your devices seem strange at first, but as your brain and ears adjust it will become more comfortable over time.
