hearing aidThe internet has made it easy to buy virtually anything online; but just because an item is available online, it doesn’t mean that’s how you should buy it. This is especially true with hearing aids.

Online hearing aids may be less expensive but they also may just be amplifying sound. Unlike getting hearing aids in an audiologist’s office, they are not adjusted to address your specific type of hearing loss.

In addition, a one-on-one explanation of the use and care of the hearing aids is always a better option. And what happens when you do need help, you may have to find a specialist and pay for your services.

The family and friends of those experiencing hearing loss will often notice the issue long before the patient is willing to admit it.  So how do you start the conversation?
