Lost your hearing aid? No problem, just ask the iPhone or Android phone to locate your aid utilizing the Google map.

Bluetooth compatibility is a new exciting innovation in hearing aid technology allowing hearing aids to be directly connected wirelessly to televisions, cell phones and land line phones. This type of connectivity can considerably improve your listening experience with any of these devices.
The choice of which instrument to use is an important factor; however by far the most critical element in your success and satisfaction with your instrument is the skill, education and experience of the Audiologist fitting the hearing aids. Be sure that the person fitting the instrument is an Audiologist with years of experience and a proven track record of success. An Audiologist can choose the most advanced hearing instrument and do an excellent job in the fitting with the result that your hearing is greatly enhanced or do a mediocre job and compromise your hearing experience.
At Hearing Associates, all fittings are completed by Blake Summers, HIS with years of education and experience which results in excellent speech clarity in a variety of listening environments. With the instrument set properly you are guaranteed the best hearing result possible.
