Do Hearing Aids Work?
At Coastal Ear, Nose, and Throat, we hear a lot of patients who are worried about whether or not their hearing aid will work for them. There are so many options available that it can be overwhelming for patients to choose the one right for them.
The doctors here take the time to educate patients and teach them about the three major components necessary in order for a hearing aid option to be effective for one’s needs and desires. Those components are as follows:
- First, a hearing aid has to be right for you. Many patients are caught up in the cost of a hearing aid or the cosmetics of one. However, these are factors that should be less important than finding one that is best for your condition and needs. Our audiologists will work with patients to ensure they have a positive listening experience with their new hearing aids. Patients should find a solution that best fits their lifestyle, needs, and dexterity.
- Second, an audiologist needs to be on your side and be an advocate for the hearing aid that is most appropriate for you. Some audiologists are not listening to their patients and their desires. The audiologists at Coastal Ear, Nose, and Throat are dedicated to ensuring patients get the listening devices that can best improve their day-to-day living. What is right for one patient may not be right for another, and vice versa. Our providers take the time to understand what our patients desire and find the hearing aid that will provide the best results and best quality of living for that individual.
- Third, patients should be motivated to get the right hearing aid for them. It is not uncommon for patients to arrive at the practice after being pushed by good intentioned family and friends. A patient needs to “want” a better listening experience before they can choose a hearing aid that fits their needs. Wearing a hearing aid at all times during the day is the most effective course of treatment for a patient and gives the individual the opportunity to experience the improvement of hearing in all environments. Patients who are motivated to improve their hearing will also be motivated to find the hearing aid best for their needs.
