USA Today on Hearing Aids
USA Today on November 2, 2009 published a story entitled "Your Health: Hearing aid guide cuts through the noise" in which best practices for buying a hearing aid is discussed. For the story, Dr. Debara Tucci at Duke University Medical Center was interviewed.
The advice is summarized by an FDA online guide (at fda.gov, click on "medical devices," then "hearing aids") that includes suggestions on how to get your hearing evaluated, how to choose a device and how to get it properly adjusted.
Our practice provides the full spectrum of hearing aid evaluation as well as hearing aid dispensing services (selling, repair, accessories, etc).
