Counseling and Fitting Process
Hearing loss is diverse and unique to each individual. Your hearing aid counseling session at UAMS will involve a thorough discussion of your hearing loss to provide a recommendation of appropriate instrumentation for you.
Silicone impressions of your ear canals will be made. Custom made earmolds or hearing aids will be ordered and ready for your fitting appointment in two weeks.
Your fitting appointment will take one hour or longer. During this appointment, your hearing aids will be computer programmed to your hearing prescription as you wear them. Programming accuracy will be verified by real ear probe microphone measurements from within your ear canal. Detailed instruction on the use and care of the instruments will be reviewed. Payment for your hearing aids will be due at this visit.
