Hearing Aid FAQ
If you are experiencing hearing loss and will need a hearing aid, you may be overwhelmed with questions. How are you supposed to choose the right hearing aid when you do not know anything about them? The experts at Bay Area Audiology are here to help! These are some of the most common questions we receive in our practice. If you have further questions that have not been answered here, our specialists will be happy to work with you to determine the best hearing aid for your needs.
Will my hearing aid be uncomfortable?
Though hearing aids in the past were big, bulky, and often became tiresome to wear after a period of time, technological advances have created devices that are smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than ever. There are a wide variety of hearing aid styles to choose from and some patients find certain types to be more comfortable than others. At Bay Area Audiology, we invite you to give various devices a test-run in our office so you can determine which will be best for you, and you will have 60 days to return it for a full refund if you find that you are unhappy with your choice.
Will a hearing aid cure my hearing loss?
Because hearing loss is the result of permanent damage to your auditory system, there is no cure for it. Hearing aids are assistive technology that allow you to cope with and effectively manage your hearing loss by providing sound amplification that makes it easier to hear.
How much will my hearing aid cost?
Because hearing loss is unique for each patient, treatment options are equally unique. At Bay Area Audiology, we provide a customized approach to ensure that your needs are met, but this also means that we cannot say for sure how much your hearing aid will cost because it will depend on which best suits your individual circumstances. We will always work closely with you to ensure that your budget concerns are honored and your needs are met effectively and affordably.
