Why Audiology & Hearing Aid Center
Selecting the best hearing technology and hearing healthcare provider can be overwhelming. We understand that you have many options when it comes to your care and seek to make your choices easier. The quality of your technology and your provider are critical to your rehabilitation and overall success. At Audiology and Hearing Aid Center, we provide our patients with the most advanced options and a staff that focuses on you. With doctoral degreed Audiologists and state certified hearing instrument specialists, our providers will evaluate your hearing needs and provide you with a solid treatment plan to meet those needs.
We strive to offer options that will work with our patient’s budgets and hearing needs, while clearly communicating available options. We understand that for most of our patients hearing loss didn’t occur overnight, and that the effects of this hearing loss are deep and meaningful; to hear better takes time and requires the expertise and genuine care of our hearing healthcare providers.
To make this process easier we encourage our patients take our devices for a week before entering a full 30 day trial period to ensure they feel confident in our recommendations and treatment plans. Our single goal is to help our community understand the importance of hearing health and we strive to make this form of healthcare available to everyone. To this end, we are pleased to announce we have joined forces with providers all of the country in a goal we call Mission One Million; we seek to offer free hearing evaluations to our individual communities and ensure the education is our focus. We encourage everyone over the age of 55 to receive a hearing screening annually and are excited to be able to offer these services at no charge.
So whether you’re a long time hearing aid wearer or are just beginning to explore the idea of seeking hearing help, one of our providers at one of our three Scottsdale locations, are available and excited to assist you in your journey to better hearing.
Re-Branded and Private Label Hearing Aids
Because Audiology & Hearing Aid Center is a private practice and not beholden to any one hearing aid manufacturer, we can provide a wide choice of options to our patients. It is important to understand that there are many “private labels” out there in the hearing aid market that make it difficult for a patient to do a fair comparison of features and pricing. For example, you may have heard advertisements for Kirkland, Miracle Ear, Beltone, etc.
What is important to know about these aids is that they are re-branded hearing instruments from other manufacturers and can only be purchased, programmed, and repaired by the offices that sell them. The problem is, you become tied to that office or franchise, for the life of the hearing aid and programming can only occur with the private label’s proprietary software.
In the case of relocation, vacation, office closure, or dissatisfaction with their service, you lose the flexibility to go to someone else as you don’t know who the manufacturer is for the hearing aids you purchased.
That is why you will only receive brands from the original manufacturer at Audiology & Hearing Aid Center. We sell a wide range of technology so we can work around any budget if a patient needs hearing aids. We have even been able to donate hearing aids to those who can’t afford to purchase them.
Internet, Mail Order and Big Box Store Hearing Aids
Hearing aids must fit correctly to work effectively. Most hearing aids that are purchased over the Internet, through mail order, or in a big box store don’t involve personal contact with a licensed Hearing Aid Dispenser or Audiologist. This makes it very difficult to get a proper fitting to ensure the hearing aid is working properly.
They may not offer follow-up care. At our center, we offer personal follow-up service so that you get the best outcome from the devices that are selected. We make sure you are comfortable with your new investment.
No Need to Overspend
At Audiology and Hearing Aid Center, we work with you to ensure you have made the right decision with your hearing health needs. We work one-on-one with you to be sure you are matched with the right hearing device for your specific hearing loss and you don’t over purchase what you don’t need. We offer several choices to find the best solution for both the level of hearing loss and the variety of difficult and noisy situations you are confronted with daily. When tested in noise at different levels, we find the technology that performs best for you in your day-to-day life as you listen to family, TV, in social settings, work and noisy restaurants.
