Otherwise known as HADs, hearing aid dispensers are licensed professionals who are legally permitted to measure, fit, and sell hearing aids in a certain state or across America. HADs are not trained to provide additional, specialized audiology services like those provided by an audiologist, but instead, concentrate on helping patients find the right equipment and hearing solution for their needs.
At Audiology Plus Hearing Solutions, our hearing aid dispensers are there to help patients explore their hearing aid options to find the perfect fit technologically. These hearing aid specialists will work alongside your audiologist to adjust your hearing aids to be a comfortable fit and fine-tune suitable hearing preferences. Like finding a pair of perfect shoes, hearing is quite subjective, and depending on your lifestyle, your hearing aids will need to be adjusted to meet your unique preferences and what we call “listening environments.” By gaining insight into your lifestyle, we program your hearing aids based on your hearing test results as well as what type of situations and listening environments you are commonly in.
For example, some patients live rather quiet lives, interacting with friends and family in and around the home, engaging in hobbies such as gardening, and watch and listen to TV and radio at home or in the car. Other patients enjoy experiencing weekly activities and events that include crowds such as noisy restaurants, ball games, or loud open-office spaces where hearing can be difficult even for people without hearing loss. By fine-tuning your hearing instrument to meet your individual needs, we can ensure that you are comfortable and happy with how you hear sounds in the environment around you.
At Audiology Plus Hearing Solutions, patient comfort and care are our priority as we will take all the time and resources necessary to help patients understand their hearing healthcare options to make the best, most informed decision relating to their hearing treatment solutions.
