Choosing the right hearing aid for your lifestyle and hearing loss is sometimes a challenging process. We want our patients to try their new hearing aids in many real-life situations before making a final decision. During our 30-day trial period you will be scheduled for weekly appointments during which we discuss your progress with the new hearing aids. We charge a $150 fee per hearing aid for our services during this time. This fee is payable at the end of the 30-day trial period if the hearing aids are returned. If the aids are purchased, the $150 fee, three months of follow-up visits and a three-month supply of batteries are included in the purchase price.
Prices of hearing aids vary greatly depending on features and quality. We strive to maintain a selection of technology priced at a level that fits into the majority of budgets. We only offer the brands and models of hearing aids that have been tried and approved by local volunteer product testers, and that meet our standards for functionality and durability. After your initial hearing test, Dr. Leavitt will explain the pros and cons of the various hearing aid brands and models best suited to your life-style, budget and hearing loss.
There is no pressure to purchase aids at any time during your appointment. You are encouraged to take time to consider all your options and make an informed decision regarding your hearing loss using the test results and information provided.
