Frequently Asked Questions

Hearing test at Physicians Hearing ClinicWhat should I expect during a hearing aid evaluation?

First, you will have an audiologic evaluation to determine the degree and type of hearing loss. The audiologist will also test your word understanding and difficulty hearing in noise. Based on the results of the testing and a discussion of your lifestyle, needs, and hearing difficulty, the audiologist will explain what hearing aid style and technology would be the best option for you. Our audiologists believe in educating and involving you in the decision process. We will not simply recommend one thing. We will have a discussion on what’s available, help you understand your hearing loss, and explain the options that may be best for you.

How much do hearing aids cost?

Hearing aids range in price. The technology inside the hearing aid drives the cost. The style or the way the hearing aid looks typically does not affect the cost. During your hearing aid evaluation, your audiologist will discuss your needs and lifestyle and recommend the technology that will best suit your hearing needs.

What if I do not want to purchase the hearing aids once I try them?

In the state of Florida, you are entitled to a 30-day trial period. During that time period, you are also able to exchange the hearing aid for another style or technology if need be. Our audiologists are committed to finding the hearing aid that best suits you prior to the end of the trial period.

Hearing aid batteriesHow often do I have to replace the battery?

You will need to replace the battery every 7 to 10 days. Your audiologist will instruct you on how to do this.

What is a telecoil?

A telecoil is a small magnetic coil that allows the hearing aid to receive sound through the circuit instead of the microphone. The telecoil allows you to hear better in public facilities that have installed a hearing loop. Many theaters, churches, and businesses in Sarasota are looped, and a telecoil is an option that your audiologist will discuss with you.
