What is a Hearing Aid Evaluation?
During a hearing aid evaluation, the audiologist will discuss a variety of hearing aid styles and technologies. Lasting approximately one hour, there is no cost or obligation for this visit. This consultation appointment will allow you to spend more time with the audiology staff discussing your personal hearing healthcare needs. This appointment will require approximately one hour. We strongly encourage that you bring someone with you to your appointment.
What are Digital Hearing Aids?
Today, all hearing aids purchased at Alamance ENT are fully digital. Unlike the traditional analog hearing aids, digital hearing aids not only amplify but also digitally convert sound waves to produce an exact duplication of the sound in which it is picking up. Digital technology is available from economy to premium. Your audiologist will discuss all technology levels with you during your Hearing Aid Evaluation.
In addition, Alamance ENT offers a 30-day evaluation period to ensure your satisfaction. Discuss any issues or concerns you have with your audiologist to help you find the right fit for you.
How Much Do Hearing Aids Cost?
Both size and technology determine the price when purchasing hearing aids. Typically, the size and amount of features the device has determines the price of the hearing aid. The audiologists at Alamance ENT offer hearing aids starting at just $980 each. Every hearing aid purchase includes hearing aid insurance and follow-up care provided by our audiology staff. Financial assistance programs are available to those who qualify.
Do I Need Two Hearing Aids?
In general, most people experience hearing loss in both ears. If there is no medical reason that would prevent you from wearing two hearing aids, then amplification in both ears (binaural amplification) will likely be recommended. Your physician and audiologist will make this recommendation based on your hearing test results.
