Audiology, which is located in the ENT Clinic, offers a variety of hearing aids. Our specialists work with patients to select a device that is best for their needs. When a patient begins the process of fitting a hearing aid, there is an adjustment period. The adjustment period is a 30-day process. The patient is asked to schedule follow-up, no charge appointment for final checks of the hearing device. With the guidance of the audiologist, the patient will decide to keep, exchange, or return the device(s) for a refund of the device's cost minus a $100 per ear fitting fee.
Examples of Hearing Aid Styles

Fitting inside the ear canal, these instruments are barely visible and deliver sound directly to the ear.
In the Canal
Virtually invisible on the outside, these instruments are cosmetically appealing with directional microphones, volume controls, and comfort.
In the ear
These instruments are easy-to-use and fit comfortably inside the ear canal. They deliver sound directly to the ear.
