We want to ensure that you are satisfied with your hearing aids and in the unlikely event of you not getting used to them, we can offer you an alternative product on the same terms. Should you however not want to go any further we will take the hearing aids back and provide a refund, provided it is within 30 days of the fitting appointment. A small charge will be made to help cover administration and production cost’s.
4What happens after the hearing aids have been fitted?
Once the hearing devices have been fitted we will arrange a comprehensive after care program to make sure you get the best possible results with your new aids. It is important that they are comfortable and properly adjusted for sound and you are able to adapt to all the new sounds you will hear again. This after care process is the most essential part of obtaining the best results for you. This is particularly true of modern hearing aids, which will need to be adjusted in gradual steps.
5What happens at my first appointment?
Firstly we want to understand your hearing problem and the effect that it has on your life. We establish how your hearing problem occurred and determine whether your condition requires further medical investigation by your doctor. During this consultation all examinations and tests carried out are non-invasive and painless.
