Fitting Hearing Aids and Follow-Up Visits
To get the best performance from your hearing aids, get a good fit.
Your audiogram and your comments about how well you hear in different listening environments help determine the optimum setting for your hearing aids. Our hearing aid specialists will adjust your hearing instruments based on your hearing loss and lifestyle. Our hearing instrument specialists will:

A good fit require a follow-up visit.
Typically, you will return for a follow up visit some days later. Wear your new hearing instruments for a few days in your regular surroundings. You may even want to write down your impressions of the sounds you hear. Based upon how well you can hear in your everyday surroundings, our hearing instruments specialists may make additional adjustments to your hearing instruments if necessary.
