New Site Serves as Master Guide for Hearing Aid Patients
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 1, 2009 -- Not all hearing aids are appropriate for every person. Thankfully, the newly launched site www.AdviceOnHearingAids.com exists to help consumers make an informed choice and find a trusted hearing clinic in their area. The site, which is maintained by audiologists and hearing health care specialists, acts as a purely educational resource with the goal of bringing practitioners and patients together.
"The biggest benefit of the site is its extensive information regarding all the major brands of hearing aids," said Dr. Kelly Calkins, Audiologist. "It lets the patient know some of the options out there and helps them find an approved hearing clinic that they can trust."
The site's main draw is its comprehensive ratings system, which allows patients to quickly compare hearing aids based on options, quality, price, and more. It also lets visitors browse articles written by industry experts, flip through brochures with just a click of the mouse, and watch videos on selected products along the way.
Constant updates cover up-to-date research findings on nearly every type of hearing aid, making it simple to stay on the cutting edge of the latest advancements in hearing technology. Visitors can also browse frequently asked questions, look up helpful information on hearing losses, and interact with other patients and clinics around the world in the Advice On Hearing Aids forum.
It's also really easy to find a trusted provider in the Advice network. Simply type your zip code into the locator box on the left hand side of every page, and a list of qualified hearing providers instantly appears. Patients can also read papers that a particular office has published and look at their photos and office credentials.
The site has evolved into more than a resource. Forums regarding specific audiology topics bring patients and providers together. The Expert Advice tab reveals discussions on concerns as varied as basic care of hearing aids, the difference between digital and analog models and symptoms of hearing loss.
"Advice On Hearing Aids is the most comprehensive hearing aid information site for both patients and providers," Dr. Calkins said. "Here at Advice, helping you find the information you need to make an informed decision about hearing aids is our main goal."
