Why is it important to purchase your hearing aids from an Audiologist?

Posted February 13th, 2018

Once it has been determined that hearing aids are needed, it is best to obtain them from a licensed audiologist. Our audiologists are licensed and certified both nationally and in the state of Virginia. Audiologists receive extensive graduate school training to manage many areas of hearing health care. This includes choosing the most appropriate hearing aid for a particular hearing loss, programming the hearing aids in the most effective manner, fine tuning the instruments based on the feedback and needs of each individual patient, and staying up-to-date on the most recent hearing aid advancements and technology.  Their scope of practice also includes the non-medical evaluation and management of hearing and balance disorders.
