Hearing aids come in a variety of sizes, shapes, styles, and technology levels. Our Doctor of Audiology will help you determine which type of amplification is best for you. This involves taking into consideration your audiological, financial, cosmetic, and lifestyle needs. You and your doctor will work together in this process.
