How do I know if I should see an audiologist or an ENT doctor?
If you have been having difficulty hearing for some time, start with a hearing evaluation with an audiologist. Please contact us to make an appointment. We'll let you know if there is any indication that medical follow-up is needed. However, if you experience a sudden change in your hearing, are having any pain or discharge from your ears, please visit your doctor or an ENT specialist first.

Will my insurance pay for hearing aids?
Some insurance companies pay for hearing aids. Some do not. Medicare, unfortunately, pays nothing for hearing aids. We are happy to help you obtain reimbursement from your insurance comapny if they do offer a benefit.
We have payment plans available.
Several non-profit organizations offer funding for those who cannot afford hearing aids. We are happy to help our customers determine whether or not they qualify for assistance, which program is most appropriate for them, and to help them apply for these programs.
