Once we determine that no medical treatment is indicated to improve your hearing or the health of your ears, we can discuss the various styles of hearing aids available. Since your hearing loss affects your spouse and other family members, we welcome them to join in the discussion. We can also program some hearing aids for you to wear during this discussion to demonstrate the difference they can make. Our recommendations are based on a number of factors, including your hearing loss, the size and shape of your ears, your lifestyle, personal preferences, and your budget. Many options are available, so we will take time to discuss the pros and cons and answer all of your questions.
