Second Opinion Clinic
We are pleased to offer a no-judgement assessment of hearing technology obtained elsewhere that may not be meeting your goals. We can clean, check, and measure your hearing aids’ ability to match your amplification prescription and their ability to reduce competing noises using Real Ear Measures. We can help you better understand how to use your devices to their best benefit, and review what you can expect them to be able to do and their limits.
We can do this with devices from the VA, other audiologists, hearing instrument dispensers, Costco, and Amazon. We can even assess hearing protection devices to verify their true in-ear attenuation ratings. Some devices are “unlocked” and we have the ability to do a full refit if you choose, others will have limits to our control. We will review such findings as part of the visit.
This service does incur a charge, ranging from $175-$500 or more if we are conducting repairs or replacing parts. We charge for this time and service so that we have no motivation to need to sell you on something different. Our goal with this service is to help you understand and get the most out of what you have. We do strongly recommend bringing a hearing test conducted within the past six months or retesting with us so that we are working with up-to-date information.
