What Happens Next
At Hearing Associates, you’re part of the team!
After an interview and a series of in-depth hearing tests, our audiologists will sit down with you and discuss your results as well. If we determine that hearing aids are the best solution, we will look at the severity of your hearing loss, your lifestyle, your particular hearing needs and challenges. We'll discuss your options and concerns, and then then recommend the type of hearing aids we believe will be most beneficial for you. We encourage you to ask questions, and go over all the different styles and choices before making your decision.
Once you have chosen your hearing aids, we take any required measurements and then will order them. When your hearing aids arrive, you'll come in to have them fitted and programmed. We perform tests to make sure that they are working properly and to your specifications before you walk out our door.
Hearing aids are an investment. In order for them to work most efficiently and last longer, proper care is required. We will teach you how to clean and care for your devices. We will show you to program your hearing aids, as well as how to store them and change the batteries.
We carry hearing aid batteries and additional products that will help you care for your devices, such as dryer boxes and filters to prevent wax build-up.
We also encourage you to bring your hearing aids into our branch in Albert Lea, Minnesota, main office in Mason City, or any of our other offices located in northern Iowa, for quarterly cleanings and maintenance, repairs or if you need help programming them.
There is a period of adaptation as your ears and brain reenter the world of sound. If you have any questions or concerns during this adjustment, please do not hesitate to ask. We want you to get the very most out of your hearing aids and are eager to help you in that process in any way.
You can find us in Mason City, throughout northern Iowa, and in Albert Lea, Minnesota. We look forward to teaming up with you on your journey to better hearing. Schedule your appointment at any of the Hearing Associates, PC practice locations.
